Jamaican Artist Miguel Bell Debuts Manchester Based, “Shadow Trapped” Comic Series!


As a child growing up in Mandeville, Manchester, Miguel “The Drawtist” Bell was all about Art. His daily sketches caught the eyes of his peers and anyone who’d be interested. From his School days to adult life, he never stopped developing his skills. Recently, he leveled up by releasing his first official Comic Book series titled, “Shadow Trapped“! With a storyline originating in Mandeville, “Shadow Trapped” sheds light on a masked Serial Killer simply named, “Pinocchio Killer” and the various characters involved. Part one of the Comic follows main character Salem Smith and her encounter with the Serial Killer. Highlights of the Comic so far include Miguel’s alma mater, Manchester High School, its neighbouring Mandeville Plaza, and Villa Plaza. The Comic stands out as it’s one of the few in recent years that shares Jamaican origins.

The art style featured throughout the Comic is inspired by Japanese Anime, CreepyPastas, with edgy Manga titles. The Comic Book series is broken up into 3 parts with parts 2 and 3 releasing in the coming months. In the meantime, part 1 is available here, and if you wish to commission Miguel for artwork, you can reach out to him here.
