*UPDATE - NEW STRETCH GOALS*

We never expected to get close to our original goal.  I'm lost for words except - Thank You!

Please see New Stretch Goals below!

So what's COLT-45 all about?

Set in a high-tech future, Frank Reynolds is badly injured in a terrorist attack that kills his wife and daughter. After having his damaged limbs replaced with experimental robotic ones, a secretive project known as the Cyber Organic Limb Trial (COLT), he gets dragged into a murky plot to sabotage a rival company in order to gain his freedom.

But things quickly go from bad to worse. Aided by unexpected friends, Frank finds himself battling against powerful enemies as he seeks a way to avenge his family.

A high octane 24 page science fiction story, suitable for most age groups.

Frank Reynolds is COLT-45

The Project and its Creators

Darren and I were first commissioned to work together in issue 23 of the anthology comic FutureQuake. His attention to detail and meticulous drawing of all things mechanical made him my first choice artist for a story that revolves around robotics, high-tech weapons, futuristic landscapes and cyborgs!

As a project in self-publishing, we gathered enough advice and encouragement at the Bristol Comics Expo to continue in our plans for a Kickstarter launch. Now it’s over to you.

Writer and Creator – Chris Redfern

Artist and Letterer – Darren Mullen

New Stretch Goals

Due to the somewhat unexpected and slightly incredible fact that we've achieved our original goal, I've now set up three Stretch Goals.  The idea now is that if we achieve these further goals, not only can we produce a better product for a cheaper retail price, but we can make a reality of launching COLT-45 at the Bristol Comics Expo 2014.

Risks and challenges

Every project like this one has its risks. Just click on the ‘comic’ search tab to the right and you’ll find many, many other similar minded individuals.

With this project however, we think that we’ve set a realistic goal both for ourselves in terms of producing the best work we can and for you in hopefully backing the project to success.
