Slate & Ashe currently has 6 action packed issues out. Going along with building the table, Echelon Graphic Novels recently inked a partnership deal with Platinum Studios (The same studio behind Cowboys & Aliens and Men In Black) for the series. The development deal will help Echelon get their properties into franchises for theatrical release, streaming, and merchandising.

We got a chance to ask Ethan Murphy why working on this project was important to them:

Storytelling has always played a pivotal role in my life. I always knew that I wanted to carry on the tradition. But now, I’m more motivated than ever. People of all colors need to feel represented by what they read, inspired by heroes that genuinely resonate with them and given hope by a voice they can understand
