Man Or Monster?
Man Or Monster?

"How do you take over a country? You release a virus that kills nine million people and then pick up the pieces"

An action thriller that intertwines enhanced humans and cutting edge technology set in a plague ravaged England - Ghost in the Shell meets X-Men and Contagion.

Set in England 10 years from now after an epidemic known as the Red Death has brought the country to its knees, a scientist heralded as its savior goes missing.  Her husband is blamed for her death, jailed and begins to lose his mind.  Due to lack of evidence he is released and starts to investigate his wife’s disappearance.  He finds the partially completed cure, a miracle drug she was developing before she disappeared, the proof that could clear him.  However, his distrust of the world he lives in convinces him he has only one option, he injects himself with the serum she created.  He gains strange and unique powers and will stop at nothing until he finds his wife and uncovers the truth.  With the whole world still wanting nothing more than the end of his existence.  The closer to the truth, the deeper his insanity.

I'm one of those people that sits down and watches a movie or a tv show and can tell you who the bad guy is within the first couple of minutes, it's gotten so bad I have just had to switch my brain off.

I'm sure I'm not the only one.  It shouldn't be like this and I hope Replicator allows you to have your brain on all the time :)

Another reason is that I find it hard to relate to a lot of superheroes these days, often the crux of their problems comes down to a moral right or wrong question as well as balancing their secret identities with their superhero lifestyles.  Personally that doesn't mirror my life at all, does it yours?

They are great at inspiring people but that isn't always what people need, I have had depression and chronic pain for around 10 years now and sometimes I just need to know that there are other people out there going through the same or similar shit.

So what's better than the main character going in"f*cking"sane during the story - and as an added benefit the more he loses his sanity the more powerful he becomes.

I want to watch/read something where the bad guys are good at their jobs.  You know shooting people, being bad guys, not shooting 50 bullets without hitting anyone.  So in order to beat the bad guys the good guys have to be awesome.

Finally I want you to question who is good and who is bad, how far can someone go before you stop cheering them on?

ROBERT ARNOLD

Australian born and raised comic author Rob Arnold has spent the last 3 years living in the UK whilst developing Replicator.  From a very early age Rob had a keen interest in the world of comics (even wanting to be a transformer when he grew up) and has always sought out a true, relatable hero in all that he has read/watched/explored. His aim with bringing his comic to life is to provide fans with a realistic yet slightly heightened hero. An avid gamer as well, Rob balances his time with work, play and spending time with his dog.

I want to be crystal clear you are not paying for any of the artwork that has been done so far - which includes 8 pages 2 covers and plenty of concept art.

All you will be paying for is to complete the remaining pages and to get those pages into your hands.

I am not looking to make any money off my backers all I want to do is to get Replicator into people's hands at the highest level of quality possible.

Risks and challenges

My main concern is that there is always a chance that the final product will be delayed for any unforeseen reason. I have put an estimated delivery date for rewards to arrive with the backers with a bit of time built in to account for any potential delays.

I, more than anyone want this project to come to life as soon as possible but also want it to be amazing and therefore will do my best to stay on top of timings without sacrificing quality.

I will ensure I keep all backers updated regarding launch and delivery dates.
