Zampano is proud to announced that our comic TELL: The Return of William Tell has joined the Collective of Heroes. This great portal for all things heroic in the webcomics world was created by Scott Story of Jonny Saturn and Arne Schulenberg of Union of Heroes and provides links to many of the best superhero webcomics on the net. Check it out and give some of the comics a try…
For the last few months we’ve been running a fanart contest on the German Zampano site. For now this has only been open to the German readers but if you’re from any other part of the world, we’d like to hear from you, if you would be interested in such a contest.
You can check out the finalists below and I’m sure the artist would appreciate it, if you would vote for them. After two days of voting the game seems pretty much open. By the way, the three winning entries are going to be printed in the German and French versions of TELL book2 in August, as well as being featured in the iPad apps.

Since we’ve finished Bakuba last week and will wrap up Don Caneloni within the next few weeks, we’re starting with a new series today. The title is called Kaos Moon: Shaman Rising and is collection of all the stories that have been created to this point.
Kaos Moon History
Kaos Moon war originally conceived by creator David Boller in the fall of 1995. By 1996 short stories were published in Switzerland in Ink Magazine as well as the German Heavy Metal. In the USA a four-issue mini-series was published by Caliber Press and became an instant fan favorite, winning an Russ Mannning Award Nomination for creator David Boller. Caliber published four issues that were also collected into two Graphic Novels in Germany’s Alpha Comics under their “Heavy Metal presents…” Label. Unfortunately both Caliber Press and Alpha Comics folded in 1998 and only two more short stories were published by Avatar Press in 1999. Kaos Moon: Shaman Rising is the first major storyline to be released in ten years.
Below is an alternate cover for issue 1 that was created for American Entertainment:
Kaos Moon Origin:
A long time ago, the mountains of Siberia were ruled by clans of powerful Shamans. Christian soldiers invaded the highlands and enslaved the
population and exterminated their religion. Only three powerful Shamans survived the attack unscathed. Their bodies were untouched and they
retreated to their hideout in Belovodia vowing revenge. Russian-born Katja Zakkov is experiencing strange visions. By merely touching people and
objects, she can see images of past events. As the flashbacks intensify, she discovers that she’s the reincarnation of an ancient, beautiful Shaman called Kaos Moon. One of the three Shamans, which survived the attacks. The other two, Shrasa and Varg, both now in altered states of existence, have been embroiled in a bitter battle over revenge. Katja realizes that she and her alter ego Kaos Moon hold the key to the balance of the triumvirate. This collection holds the brand-new origin “Shaman Rising” story as well all four regular issues published by Caliber Press in the late nineties as well four additional short-stories and previously unpublished paintings and sketches. This is your chance to get a collected version of Kaos Moon the esoteric cult classic from the late nineties and enjoy the beautiful and detailed artwork by popular European creator David Boller.
This is just to give you some background. Most of the stories are self-contained. We’ll be starting the release in cronological order…enjoy!
