The Crimson Rider is a public domain character who's story was originally told in another characters (Wilton of the West) series. Put out in Jumbo comics #9 and #10, her story was told from the perspective of Wilton of the West. It was a story of a mysterious masked person was trying to hunt down and kill the same gang of miscreants Wilton of the West was trying to lawfully bring to justice. The Crimson Rider was the mystery of the book, at the end her identity was revealed to be a teenage girl named Mary Bennon, and she was only seeking justice on the gang that murdered her father in cold blood.

In my version of Marys story, it begins as she has been captured after a long and successful career of hunting down really bad folks and relieving them of their lives. Mary is set to be hanged for her crimes. She tells the story of where it all began to those around her, it's an action packed and heartfelt story. Join us, as The Crimson Rider rides again.

Risks and challenges

Usually, there are many risks involved in creating a comic. What if the artist bails? What if I miscalculate printing costs? Amazingly, all the risks have been navigated. I stand before you with a complete book. I have negotiated the printing costs. All that stands in our way is raising the capital for the initial print run. Together, we shall see the Crimson Rider ride again!
