Matthew McKenzie is a man on a mission. 

He tracked his quarry across the US and has now caught up with him in the appropriately named town of Resurrection.

The problem is that the man he is after leads a band of hardened outlaws and they have taken over the whole town.

A man would have to be crazy to go up against such odds.

Crazy or with an ace up his sleeve.

Something that gives him the edge.

That sets him apart.

 Mathew McKenzie has such an edge.

But will it be enough?

McKenzie's tale is told in a 128 page graphic novel, greyscale with colour covers.

The Town Marshall reward features an original water coloured piece from artist Gary Crutchley. Gary has produced 4 samples to tempt you with.

The US Marshal reward includes this excellent pencil artwork page scanned and then inked to become the cover image for issue 3 of WesterNoir.

The Judge reward includes this excellent pencil artwork page scanned and then inked to become the cover image for Tales of WesterNoir issue 1.

A print card will be awarded to all Backers for every £300 that we reach above the targeted £1000. More details will follow with regards the artists for these full colour images that will be of characters from the WesterNoir comics.

We've hit the target of £1000, which is fabulous, and so here's the first of the bonus cards should we hit £1300. The idea is to make this double sided but we just might end up with two individual cards. Either way if we hit £1300 all backers will get both images.

...featuring art from Hard Country and WesterNoir artist Gary Crutchley with colours from Matt Soffe.

Risks and challenges

The comic book is already completed we just need help with print costs.
