Several minions have escaped the depths of Hell and are now in hiding on Earth. Most live amongst us as human beings keeping a low profile. However, some have become so brazen that they have begun roaming the Earth freely violating and sometimes even feeding on humans. Absconder warrants now issued- Dyana, a blue blooded death demon ordained as the most insidious and vicious bounty hunter Hell has ever produced must serve them. She's a detective investigating demonic crimes and is responsible for tracking, capturing, and deporting each and every creature back to Hell.
Aided by her most trusted companion Azrael, a shifty, gun toting, chain-smoking Hellion. Her legend and prowess have put even the vilest creatures on high alert. She let's nothing stand in her way, including the forces of light who have taken exception to her presence on Earth. She must battle the forces of light while simultaneously pursuing the defectors. She will face her own inner demons and will discover that when dealing with the politics of light vs. dark, nothing is out of bounds and that both sides play for keeps. She is... The Nightstalker.

Check this out! Bobby & Alex Barajas saw the news cast yesterday, contacted the news station and got my booth number, then they drove up from Yuma to show Night Stalker and RRH some support! What more can I say than thank you! I begged them to take a picture with me and they agreed!
R.R.H. #1 Review
July 26, 2014
By Rik Offenberger
Everyone knows the story of Little Red Riding Hood from childhood. Orlando Harding, of Nightstaler fame, and #1First Comics have a brand new take on the Red Riding Hood story in their new comic R.R.H.
Sydney is the ninth generation grand daughter of the Original Red Riding Hood. On her 17th Birthday she discovers her lineage.
Her life had been fairly normal, her younger brother loves her and her mother and father give her a brand new car for her birthday, she has lots of friends and appears to be popular, its about as good as it gets at 17.
On her way home from celebrating her Birthday with her friends, a man in the alleyway rhymes Blood Moon Hoods Doom, then disappears. Sydney tries to tell her Mom when she gets home but Mom is too tired too listen. (If you are a cat lover you will hate this book.) The Big Bad Wolf in this story is a Werewolf, or as they are referred to in the story, a Bloodwolf. The Bloodwolf dines on the family cat before coughing it up on the lawn as a giant hairball. When Sydney discovers her poor dead pet on the lawn, her parents explain to Sydney her true lineage, thus setting up the premise for the mini-series.
The story is well written and Sydney is a believable seventeen year old. Her friends and family sound and act realistically in the establishing story. It is a fun twist to make the wolf a werewolf, the mixing of fairy tales and classic monsters is always fun. The story leaves off when Sydney is just beginning her adventure. It leaves you wanting more. As a reader I especially want seeing how Sydney deals with her first Werewolf.
The art by Andres Esparza and Ulises Curiel is top notch, Sudney and her family are well drawn and well proportioned, coming across as regular people, not superheroes in street clothes.
I got my copy at the #1First Comics booth at SDCC (booth 2001), you can get one there or online at the 1firstcomics.com website.

Orlando Harding and R.R.H. bring a new take on a classic tale
Oakland Comic Books Examiner
April 22, 2014
Orlando Harding keeps the hits coming with his latest release through First Comics entitled R.R.H. Mr. Harding took time out of his busy Con schedule to share a bit about this new fantasy/horror title and some really cool developments that are brewing around this new release.
MT: R.R.H is your latest creation that will be rolling out under the First Comics banner, what is the significance of the title and what is the story line about? What made you decide to go with First Comics as the home for this title?
OH: The significance of the title is the tale itself. We have all heard of the story of Red Riding Hood but with R.R.H. we take it to an entirely different level. When a person reads this book they will understand the events that unfold around Sydney Woodman and will actually find them to be believable and unlike anything they have ever seen. This book will explain several things left out of the tale regarding what really happened between Red, Grandmother & the Wolf. We will also introduce a few new characters and will reveal things that were left out and forgotten over time. The story will correlate how events from the past will affect Sydney in the present. She will rediscover important lessons lost by time and find them useful when dealing with the creatures of the Shadowland in the present. I have to admit that this story will have the reader begging for more.
The basic premise of the story is that descendants of the "Wolf" have been able to track down the descendants of "Lil Red" and exact revenge upon them for what happened 800 years ago. One thing that the Wolf's descendants did not count on is that the descendants of "Red" are ready for them- resulting in a bloody & brutal war that takes place right under the nose of the modern world and civilized society in San Francisco. Sydney Woodman-a direct descendant of "Lil Red" is thrust into the middle of this epic struggle and will eventually become the most lethal assassin the world and the Wolves has ever seen. Her transformation will be amazing and tragic all at the same time, but she will be guided through it and become who she must in the end. You will feel for Sydney and the Wolves at the same time and will understand the struggles that both sides must endure.
I went with 1First Comics simply because they believed in me. I was turned down by so many publishers when I was pitching Night Stalker, but 1First Comics and Ken F. Levin saw the potential. They believed that there was a place and a need for Night Stalker and that we as a team could offer something to the world that had never been done. 1First was willing to do what others were unwilling.
MT: Your work tends to feature a strong supernatural/horror element. Is this intentional? Where did the inspiration for this story come from?
OH: It is very intentional that my work features a strong supernatural/horror element. It's what I love and it's what people seem to really respond too. When I pitch R.R.H. at the cons people are amazed and say "Are you serious?!!" this in turn results in a sale. They say that they have never heard of a concept like R.R. H. before and have to see where the book is going. I have received nothing but praise thus far for the book and that is a great sign!
The inspiration for the story came from me filling in the gaps of a legendary story. I went with what I knew and started asking questions about what was missing or what did not make sense. From this I took the next logical step and filled the gaps with occurrences that made sense, were believable and really cool. I then went to my wife (who is my harshest critic) and pitched to her and she was absolutely amazed. When I saw how she reacted, I knew I had something. Next thing you know she was coming back to me asking more questions and really getting deep into the story. She told me that no one was going to see this coming and that I had to get the book printed done asap. She said that she was anxious to find out what happened next, so she knew that others would be too. I went with a feeling and it turned out to be really cool and different.
MT: Does R.R.H occur in the same universe as Night Stalker (your other title that is under the First Comics banner)? If it does, any chance of a crossover at some point?
OH: They will indeed occur in the same universe. We might even have a cameo of a character in one of the books. I have an idea about how to do it but still have to coordinate the events between the two books so they make sense.
MT: Who is the creative team on this project? Will this be an ongoing project or limited series?
We have been cleared to produce five issues and I do believe that this will be an ongoing series after that-there will be so much more to tell.
MT: You recently ran a successful contest in conjunction with First Comics to find an artist for this project, what was it about the winner, that made their work stand out?
OH: When it came down to Andres & Ulises winning the contest it simply came down to style and appeal. They beat out over 500 other contestants competing for the same job. Just like a mate, you know on the inside as to what you're attracted too. Their work called out to me and it all just seemed to fit. They beat out a lot of other talented artists and deserved this chance to show what they can do. The funny thing is that I did not predict them as the winners. I thought it was going to be others that made it to the semi finals but when it was all said and done- it was clear that they were the winners. They have really been great to work with too! Nothing better than a team that gets along and works well together. I am a huge fan of both Andres Esparza and Ulises Curiel!
MT: It looks like the story is set in San Francisco, as with your previous work on Pariah and Night Stalker. What is it about the Bay Area that appeals to you so much in your storytelling? Will we be seeing more of surrounding cities or will the majority of this tale unfold in the iconic city?
OH: The bay area is my home. Since I cannot live there, the next best thing is that the characters I've created live there in my stead. San Francisco is the city that I know best, so it feels real to me when placing my characters in real places that I have been, enjoyed and long to be back in. I believe the entire bay area will play host to my characters. I will eventually put them all around the Bay Area and not just San Francisco. But what better place to put characters that you love, in the city that you love?
MT: Where can fans find the latest and greatest from the mind of Orlando Harding? Will the title be featured at any upcoming cons?
1First Comics, Orlando Harding, MORB-X FX & Eric Fox would like to take this opportunity to announce a partnership for the Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con in June of 2014. Eric Fox, best known for his brilliant work on Syfy's hit show Face Off and its spin-off Foxy & Co. have teamed up with 1First Comics & Orlando Harding to do something amazing. Orlando Harding, best known as the creator of the San Francisco based comic book Night Stalker & R.R.H. will appear with Eric at The Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con for the sole purpose of transforming an individual into the demon form of the character Night Stalker in front of an audience of comic con attendees. Similar to the transformations that millions viewed on Face Off, Eric will use all of his talents and skills to make the character Night Stalker come to life and etch terror into the hearts and minds of all that gaze upon her. This event will be the highlight of the Con and is a task never attempted before by Eric. Once transformed, The Night Stalker and Eric will walk the aisles of the showroom floor to a designated spot for autographs, photo ops and an opportunity for fans to take home a piece of history.

Publisher / Writer
Hi! I'm Orlando Harding publisher of Revolution Comics. I would like to thank all of you who have supported us thus far. Night Stalker will take you on an adventure never experienced before. Being born and raised in the bay area has always made me return home and I am proud to have created the bay area's first super hero The cities that I have lived in like San Francisco, East Palo Alto, and San Jose has had a tremendous impact on me returning home to my roots in the city by the bay.
As a kid, I grew up watching sci-fi stuff and fell in love with it. The largest influence on me and was responsible for activating my creativity and love for sci-fi and fantasy was Star Wars, created by George Lucas. To date, I still think it is the coolest movie that I have ever seen. I've been told that in regards to stories, that just about everything had been done before so I had to come up with something unique, something that people had not seen before. I wanted to not only surprise people, but also peak their interests. I wanted to do something that had never been attempted before and this is why I put Night Stalker in the city of San Francisco. I think people should understand that super heroes are needed everywhere - especially the rough cities.
Some people have called Night Stalker groundbreaking. I just think that is was long over due and I hope that you enjoy it.
