Becoming Henry: The Manuscript
Artwork by Diamant
His mother murdered before his eyes, Luke Richards was thrust into the foster care system. Specially selected for what he thought was a military program in the East End of London, his sixteen-year-old attitude and smart mouth earned him numerous beatings, especially when he stood up for the only girl in class.
In the shadows, someone watched, begging for his life to be spared.
Through corporal punishment, the program leaders reinforced that he had nothing, was nothing, and meant nothing.
Identities changed. Luke Richards became Liam Henry Daniels.
Tracking devices surgically implanted, the recruits were kept locked in a prison built on greed and absolute power.
Ordered to leave for the States to put the leader’s plan into action, Liam feared for the safety of the girl he loved, asking another to protect her.
With limited options, he craved control over his life.
Decision made, Liam became Henry.
*NOTE: This is the manuscript Diamant is adapting for the first issue of the Shattered Lives comic, Becoming Henry.
