THE ART OF HAL HEFNER

My name is Hal Hefner. I am the creator of Gates, Heavy Metal Magazine's first online comic book. Gates, is a digitally painted webcomic that is the debut story from a greater narrative of science fiction, fantasy and horror. Entitled, THE SERPENT SEED, this universe spans thousands of years and is rooted in real American history, exploring the past, present and future of the human race. THE SERPENT SEED is currently in production now, through my production company, Catmonkey Studios. THE SERPENT SEED is an ever evolving narrative production told across multiple media platforms. Rooted in the real history of one of the oldest, and most historic parts of the United States, THE SERPENT SEED is a unique setting that will conjure the magic of current technology and the social aspects of interconnecting a global community. THE SERPENT SEED is currently available on MADEFIRE as a motion book series.
