Science fiction action comic of Templar warrior thrust into interstellar war between rival "gods" and confronting his faith vs his duty
"The Templar" is a long labor of love from writer Shane Bell of Australia and artist Matt Northrup of the United States. Making further leeway into this project requires full time support though, and to achieve this, establish advertising and promotional goods for conventions and publishers, will require backing from generous backers and lovers of independent comics. That's where you, the Kickstarter community comes in.
Synopsis of the book:
Friday the 13th of October, 1307. The infamous night that saw the
Knights Templar ruthlessly slaughtered under the directive of Pope
Clement V. A culling so brutal that hundreds of years later, the date is
still considered cursed. What really sparked such carnage?
Follow the story of Ryan, a General of the Order Templar, as he uncovers the secrets the Order was founded to protect, the raw power hidden behind that secret, and the true origins of life in the universe.
The Templar Knights were protectors of religious pilgrims, maintaining a vow of poverty and giving all wealth they had to the Church. They sought no riches, only piety. Discover the real reason the Pope secretly ordered the assassinations of these benevolent guardians, and how the survivors found their true purpose in the aftermath.
It's a story of a hardened warrior, raised in one reality and thrust into another, and his coming to terms with his destined duty. Within the pages you'll find swashbuckling action, rich characters, original worlds, mystery and intrigue.
