Each of the characters looking into Nicole's death has different talents and motivations.

“These three people not only have different connections to Nicole, but also have very different approaches to investigating her death and their different approaches yield different and varied results,” Faerber said.

The miniseries will be presented entirely in black and white, which was both an economic and artistic decision.

“This was something that I thought would look cool, visually,” Faerber said. “It was also an economic consideration. We wouldn't have to pay a colorist so there'd be one less ‘mouth to feed,' so to speak. But I knew Koray is such a strong artist that approaching the book in stark b&w would really show off his art. We're even making the covers b&w, plus any interior ads. I want it to be a whole b&w package.”

Kuranel, a graphic designer and commercial artist living in Turkey, was introduced to Faerber through former “Noble Causes” artist Yildiray Cinar.

“Koray's done extensive work as a storyboard artist, and you can totally tell when you look at his sequential work. He really knows how to tell a story,” Faerber said. “There are a lot of silent sequences in ‘Point of Impact,' simply because his art is so effective I didn't need to clutter it up with word balloons or captions.”

“Point of Impact” is on sale now at comic-book shops.
