On June 15th, 2015, the creative minds at Lyons Art & Media Productions, LLC., Honesty IV Productions, and Sinister Comics Studios decided to join forces to create a new entertainment brand, 4Shadow Entertainment Ltd. 4Shadow Entertainment Ltd is the home of some fun and exciting independent comic book titles including, Man-Muth, Messengers of the Hidden Truth, SCARLETT, The Brood, and The Knuckle Heads. These titles feature a diverse, unique, and interesting cast of characters that fans from various ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds will be able to relate to. Our mission is to always deliver high quality, visually appealing, and entertaining comic book, graphic novel, and video content to all of our fans.
My family and friends call me Nando, so I will graciously extend that privilege to you as well. Since the age of five, I have longed to create colorful characters, worlds, and stories, similar to the ones I read about or saw on the big screen. In 1999, I joined forces with Jay Honesty IV to begin discussions for the creation an original comic book series, with diverse characters and entertaining storylines that would address some real life issues, and represent the demographics often underrepresented in comic books. In 2017, our vision was realized, when we released the first issue of Messengers of the Hidden Truth comic book mimi-series.
I look forward to the opportunity of displaying my talent within the pages of Messengers of the Hidden Truth, and working with my partners at 4Shadow Entertainment to provide fresh new content for your entertainment.

….to make a long story short…
With passion for humanities and linguistics I’ve have spent most of my career lingering in the background of the world of literature. It’s only recently that I’ve decided to delve into published authorship. My love for words came early in life. By the age of five I had already made great strides in the application of pressure upon the nerves of most family members from correcting the grammar of their vernacular. By age eight I was overjoyed with the binding of my first book entitled “My Mind Is Free” in my second third grade class. (lol…don’t ask) By the age of eleven I entered the sixth grade as an “accelerated program” English student. From that point until graduation from high school I remained in AP classes. However; following graduation I somehow ended up at Northern Virginia Community College as a psychology major. How or why that happened is anyone’s guess. But; as the sowing of oats goes with most boys stumbling into adulthood, I haphazardly found my way into St. Augustine’s College as an English major. It was there that I proceeded to kill all but maybe six or seven brain cells which hung on with feverish zeal to begin writing articles, poetry and essays amid class assignments. Well twenty years have passed with innumerable pages of prose without a consistent platform. So, I’m excited to join the 4Shadow Entertainment Team and look forward to producing stimulating and thought-provoking content.
