Fenix Gear is the story of 3 reluctant super heroes, considered by the public to be the greatest threat the world has ever met. Hilarity ensues.
Fenix Gear is a comic about three super-powered women trying to forge a better world in the face of oppression and injustice. Leylie, Zoe, and Carolyn are SAMSONs - ordinary people converted into a Super-powered Army for the Military Supremacy of the OmniNation - but the citizens of the world have turned on the program. All SAMSONs are slated to be captured and destroyed. The force originally created to hunt down SAMSONs has taken control of the world's government, taking it from a nominal democracy to a police state. It's up to our three heroes to set things right - but will their differing views and propensity for hilarious hijinks get the better of them?
The main characters are (from right to left on the image above):
Leylie: Bubbly crazy pants with purple hair. She has the power to break the 4th wall and adjust the comic to her own will. Paired with the interests and behavior of a six-year-old, this doesn't always end well.
Zoe: The do-gooder with a dark past. Can manipulate the energy in her body to create fiery blades around her arms. She thinks they can make the world a better place if they take the moral high ground.
Carolyn: Murderous clown who thinks the moral high ground will only get them killed. She can manipulate every cell in her body, making her a metamorph, though her preferred shape is that of a demon. She thinks the enemy needs to be taken out before she's taken out instead.
Together, they battle the anti-SAMSON forces known as White Coats, as well as angry mothers, time travelers, and even themselves. Throughout the course of the story, they gradually discover the implications of their actions and the kind of future they're building, often discovering that their crusade isn't quite what they thought it was.
The comic issues are written by me in Final Draft and then Zach takes over, creating thumbnails, then doing all the pencils and colors using his magic art button. Zach is working freelance for me, so all the money goes to pay him and to print the issues.
We have already completed 2 issues, with 2 more in the works. We're trying to get funding so that we can create a trade and, hopefully, have 6 to sell at Comic Con.
Each issue is 22 pages, drawn and colored by Zach Turner. We have already scripted the issues out, but your help supports Zach while he completes the art and lets us publish the book, in addition to getting you one of the fabulous thank-you gifts listed in the sidebar.
Any extra funds will go towards the next issue.
