Cain The Conqueror-Comic Book
When the heir to the throne of secret assassins comes home to find his family murdered, he must utilize all his powers for vengeance.
“What if the heir to the throne of a league of legendary assassins, was the only survivor of their annihilation?”
In a dark corrupt world bubbling over with evil, there exists a clan of legendary assassins with super powers called the Conquerors. The conquerors never cared much for the advancement of others, and historically acted only for their own progression. However their leader, George the Conqueror, grew tired of these selfish endeavors. He felt their powers were being squandered on senseless acts of self-interest that only maintained the status-quo. He grew troubled while watching people die and suffer in this dark world, so he initiated steps to begin using the clan's powers to make the world a better place.
Every assassin who is a member of The Conquerors clan are granted amazing abilities unique to each member. Cain is the heir to the throne and has powers that allow him to create and manipulate wormholes that cut through time and space. This is called "Rifting". He studied criminal justice and has a strong knowledge of the underworld. After Cain graduates from college he hops on the train home, expecting to help his father George the Conqueror, to use their powers for the good of all mankind. Unfortunately when he walks through the door, he finds his father murdered, his mother paralyzed, and his sister completely gone but presumed dead as well. Soon after, while tracking down leads, his partner betrays him. After the death of his father his methods changed and became much more violent. Everyday he looked at his mother and had to help her do the simplest things, he got angrier and angrier and he swore revenge.
Cain's no nonsense attitude and willingness to do whatever it takes to protect the innocent often put him at odds with the law.Now he must learn to control his anger to protect his city from his insane former partner,while tracking down the people who were strong enough to take down a clan of assassins!
We already have book 1 nearly finished and will be going on to book 2 and have them printed if it is funded. The goal is to publish book 1 and 2 together, total pages 46. Funding will cover inking, coloring, and lettering. It will also cover printing, distribution, and advertisement. This will allow Cain the Conqueror to be viewed all over the world and in comic book stores in the U.S.A. My team is also already prepared to start production on an animated short film starring Cain and his rogues! The short film will be available for free on the Wiseguy Industries website when completed.
Funding of the books and the exposure of the books will aid in developing the brand, animated series, and other major comic book characters like Bonzai, Angel, Kineso, and more!
There are 16 books planned, so if we exceed expectations more books will be made expanding Cain's universe and detailing more of his adventures. We will likely be doing another Kickstarter to help make more animated short films as well as a full series.
WHERE DOES FUNDING GO?
Funding will cover the artists, inkers, colorers, printing, and the animated shorts, as well. Further funding will go to marketing and Cain the Conqueror merchandise: T-shirts, buttons, posters, and toy models. All of these things except for the animation, will be handled by Jesse Hansen and the Cornerstone Creative Studios team!
IF GOAL ISN'T REACHED
If we do not meet our goal completely, book 2 and all of the animations will not be available to audiences. There will be no short film. There will be no 16 books coming soon to a store near you. It will not have a presence at comic con. Cain The Conqueror book one will not be fully realized. They won't be printed. People who may like the story won't get to see it from start to end. Please Share or Fund... or both. Both would be terrific!
We've got some pretty cool characters and seeing them interact with one another is even cooler. We are really excited to give these characters to the world.
Risks and challenges
The risks facing any comic book is getting the proper people to handle all of the different facets of getting them made. Finding people to ink, color, draw, and advertise them properly is rough! However Cain the Conqueror is partnered with Cornerstone Creative Studios so we have some of the best people in the industry to get this project completed!
Last time we listed this project the goal was a lot higher. We were recently able to work with the Cornerstone studios team to get the price taken way, way down! So now we need just $3,000 to get this Superhero out and kicking butt!
We just want to thank everyone for their help and support! Thank you so much!
