1880, northern France. An elusive gang of violent murderers, dubbed the Axe Killers by the newspapers, is terrorising the area. Despite their bloody trail, the local gendarmerie, under command of the formidable Monsieur Loup hasn't been able to apprehend these bloodthirsty looters. But Monsieur Loup has a secret trump card: a tall, ghastly looking and mysterious woman that he calls Hecate.

Before we go any further, let's get this out of the way, "The Unnamed" is not another "caped superhero action packed" comic, Monsieur Loup does not have a secret identity and Hecate is not a clairvoyant alien ninja who farts fire arrows (although that sounds awesome). No, "The Unnamed" is something different. Its central theme is “knowledge is power” but it leaves enough room for an atmospheric detective story, character development and mystery.

Because the entire graphic novel is a bit too long, about 400 pages not counting white pages or covers, to be funded as a whole,“The Unnamed” will be split up and published in 10 volumes, starting with the 32-paged, self-published first volume “The Axe Killers”.

This first volume can be pre-ordered as a digital copy or as a softcover along with T-shirts and there are a few BIG packages available for those who are interested.Think of this as a “kickstart” to get the Unnamed engine started. It’s quite a sum of money we are trying to raise but it will be used to cover Joel’s expenses, printing and shipping costs across the globe. The script is by Ivo Goeyens who in the past had written self-published short stories and online reviews.The art was done by Joel Saavedra whom you might know as the letterer of the critically acclaimed, crowdfunded “Yi Soon Shin”-serie.

Risks and challenges

"The Unnamed" will be the first project that Ivo and Joel will be overseeing from start to finish, from the conception to the shipping.
Although the homework has been done, there are still some obstacles to overcome such time managment and legal protection...stuff...things that they need to figure out.
Furthermore, communication. Between Ivo and Joel are an equator, a meridian and an ocean. It's not like they can quickly head over to each other to discuss plans.
Still, they know where to go to have their stuff printed and set off on a globalised adventure.
