John Dudley ( @jdudley006 on Twitter) and I have been working on a comic for about a year now. The plan is to submit to multiple publishers. As we are well on our way to finishing the first issue, we've decided that it's time to share some details.
John and I have both poured a whole heap of soul into the project. Needless to say, we take more than a little pride in this tale.
The project is called: PACKS OF THE LOWCOUNTRY
The world has been invaded.
There are many species of the Invaders, all of them determined to claim the earth as their own.
As the planet’s apex predator, they sought their sights on us immediately. And in only a matter of days, they hunted us to near extinction. In the years since, some species have settled into regions befitting of their hunting patterns. Today, they stand unchallenged as they hunt their helpless prey.
We still don’t know what they are, or where they came from. But it hardly matters now. In this post-Invasion world, mankind no longer has the time to learn. Survival is the only rule.
A lucky few of us have escaped to the Free Lands. Our walls hold strong, and we lock the gates tight. We know that there are other survivors out there. Sometimes, the refugees come, literally
banging on the walls, desperate for our protection. "Resources are tight enough as it is," my superiors say, turning their backs on these hopeful survivors.
But I know the truth: it could just as easily have been any of us stuck in the Active Lands.
Maybe I’m a fool. But I sure hope I’m not alone in thinking that we can still find a way help. And I need an answer soon: ‘cause a mission file just came through.
For the first time since the Invasion, I’m about to step outside.
