About

Drawing Comics is a Dream That Lets Me Tell You Important Stories

While I like animation, it takes me a month to get a smooth half minute drawn and filmed. So I have to use tricks and tweaks to pull it together. Comics allow me to spend time and get sublime. You know, literary!

This story is a plump action story, but you won't have to dig too hard to find rich detail. Come along with me for this part of a 4-issue arc and let me tempt you with a little more!

--Lonnie Webb

Killing Wirth:Part One

Far away from Earth there is a colony world being poisoned by a failed weather machine. Colonist farmers are desperate to survive while the surface is being burned and dissolved down to rock. Giant monsters crawl out of the ocean to pursue the farmers across the countryside. The colony the survivors seek refuge is in perfect order, except everyone is missing!

Long frozen soldier, Wirth, emerges from a casket. A deeply troubled man with no past, no future. Will he doom them or save them?

Rewards 

If you are able to contribute at a higher tier, we are going to thank you for supporting my story telling by issuing rewards such as this inked print.

Killing Wirth is fun, frightening, and sublime in places. There are many twists and turns. You won't see them coming.

This 4-issue arc

  • Part One
  • Part Two
  • Part Three
  • Part Four

Have you ever wished you could make a comic but felt unable? This is your chance. I do this all day. If you are willing to pay a crowdfunded, I am willing to tell the story you want to read. Further, I encourage you to keep trying!

Let's do this!

Stretch goals

If the goal is exceeded by 250.00 there will be additional pages added. The 4-issue arc could grow to a 6-issue arc!

  • Part Five
  • Part Six

Part One

Introduces the characters and all the hazards of the hellish unnamed planet.

Who We Are

Written and Illustrated by Lonnie Webb (Forgotten Son Murders, Mister Tatters, Thru)

Edited by Wyndi Gale 

Lonnie Webb is a retired master software engineer, project manager, and professor. Severely handicapped he recovers from brain injury thru the art of comics and animation. Previous solo works include Mr. Tatters, Romin's Road, and of course the alternate history scifi Thru comic. The above animation is an example of his work.

Wyndi Gayle debuts her skills as an editor with this issue. She discovered her love for creative writing in her late 20's. While creating and managing a play-by-post RPG world for more than ten years, Wyndi found another love: comic books. Over the past few years she has begun writing stories for publication (coming soon!). Wyndi has a bright future in this industry.

Risks and challenges

You know all those risks and hang-ups? Not a problem. All of the pages have been produced for part one in advance. Part two and stretch goals do require a good showing for part one. It is always conceivable there will be such a high demand for custom sketches that I am delayed getting them out. I'm willing to suffer that embarrassment!

The highest risk we have is printing and shipping. If there are issues, we're going to get the word out.
