Hello ninghrhino a.k.a John Connell.  More than two weeks ago I became fascinated and curious with your graphic novel Carnal: Pride of the Lions.  I was looking up art to lion warriors and stumbled upon the front cover of your Pride of the Lions and was won over by the stunning cover art.  Since then I’ve been looking up on how to make a purchase of the story but find that it’s out of print everywhere.

I’ve looked on Amazon, Barnes &Noble, and all your conjoined art sites to look for in addition that’s for sale but can’t seem to find one.  So I have a few questions about where I can get a hold of a copy of your work as well as some questions about the story and the characters themselves.  I went to every site that had anything attached to your universe and am both curious and astounded with the characters and the world you molded, and with that have a few questions.  You don’t have to answer any of them but I’m just going ask them anyway.

Q 1) where can I find a hard or a paperback copy of Carnal: Pride of the Lions?

Q 2) you once mentioned that you wanted to make five volumes of this world and that there was a second coming out.  Has the second volume already been released or is it still in production mode?  Is the title for the second addition, Pray for survival or rise of the bulls?

Q 3) Do all the pages in your novel have illustrations are just a few?

Q 4) Oron.  Is he the lion on the cover of the book?  The cover was gorgeous I loved all the fine details.  From the strands of hair both course, frayed, and fine to the old scarring on his face.  That image is a marble to look at.  And I’m trying to place a name with a face.

Q 5) are any of the lion, hyena, or buffalo tribes or societies based on any actual tribes and cultures in Africa now or way back then?

Q 6) I know there are female lions in your world I’ve seen pictures of them, but what about female hyenas and water buffalo.  You mention in a Q&A that the hyena society is something along the line of matriarchal, so female hyenas may be less seen then males but still not seen it all leads something to be desire.  Same can be said about the water buffalo.

Q 7) Char is the last of the leopards.  What did the cheetahs look like?

Q 8) the same magic or science that made the lions, hyenas, water buffalo, cheetahs, and leopards in to what they are now.  Did it have an effect on any other animals in Africa?  Such as crocodiles, snakes, zebra, giraffes, gazelle, elephant, bird various species, hippopotamus they kill more people every year that both crocodiles and lions combined and finally humans them self’s.

Q 9) what time does the story take place in?  Hundreds of years in the past?  Hundreds of years in the future?  Or in the stories present?  Whenever that maybe.

Q 10) how old and how tall do the lion, hyena, and buffalo people get?  By compared to a human. Oron is said to be twice as tall as the average lion.  So how tall is he?

Q 11) I’ve seen a picture of an adorable lion cub called Ghost.  Is he Oron’s son?

Q 12) Sphinx the half lion half panther Egyptian themed warrior.  In my opinion this one has to be the most gorgeous of all the characters you create for this world.  So does he come in volume one or or volume two?  The sphinx’s path ever cross Oron’s?

I know there are a lot of question you don’t have to answer any of them if you think you might accident give away a spoiler.  But if you can at least tell me where I can buy a copy of Carnal I’d be very obliged.  Good luck with your family and you’re creative endeavors.
