To quote 007's creator, British Secret Service alumnus and author Ian Fleming: "James Bond is just a piece of nonsense I dreamed up. He's not a Sidney Reilly, you know." 

Sidney Reilly was the world’s first true secret agent and is regarded by the CIA, KGB, and MI-6 as the creator of the modern intelligence officer.

Building upon his genius, we at want to take you into a world where Sidney Reilly made his bold plans and direct actions, Set in a world of alternate history, called Steampunk,  with the computer age beginning 150 years before ours, and the subsequent technological fallout that results, you follow the stories of the man known as the ‘Ace of Spies’ as he travels the globe defending the interests of the British Empire.

Steampunk Reilly is the first graphic novel produced by 3-AR Studios' artist Will Deonne and writer Clayton Barnett. It first debuted at the Wizard World Ohio Con in Columbus Ohio in 2013 with Volume One: Engine Trouble

The Booth for Release!!
The Booth for Release!!

After positive reviews we have decided to continue the story that stretches to 12 issues and a special spin-off issue "Terror in Bavaria". While Engine Trouble was effectively released as a Issue One, it will ultimately act as a prologue and introduction to the protagonist and the world of steampunk.

Steampunk Reilly will act as the third visual release from artist Will Deonne following Stelle and A Single Day and Night of Misfortune. This will be the fourth project he has produced with his 3-AR co-founder and writer Clayton Barnett. The duo is responsible for the Visual Novel's OTChi Kocchi, Noda+Naruko's Naughty Nights, and Chibi Kocchi.

The story will span 190 pages including the Original volume and the Terror in Bavaria spin-off.

Terror in Bavaria
Terror in Bavaria

Terror in Bavaria is an alternate arc taking place mid-way through the 12-volume series. As the comic is set in the alternate world of steampunk, Terror allows us to further expand that alternate world to that of zombies! Steampunk zombies!

We have rewards set up so you can own the digital and physical versions of volume one and/or the complete novel. We also have rewards were all three books can be hardbound in a singular book! Multiple version of covers are available at different reward levels as well. 

Our goal with this campaign is to use this money to clear our schedules for an expedited completion date of January 2014 and the printing costs of limited edition volumes of all three books.

Outside of the the copies debuted at the Wizard World Ohio Con, all of the rewards in this Kickstarter will be exclusives and will not be offered elsewhere. 

Kickstarter remains a prominent place where indie companies like 3-AR Studios can expand their audiences and produce their passion projects. Your support of indie comic books/graphic novels makes it possible for these projects to become reality. 

We thank you for your time and continued support. 

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The only real challenge is the expedited completion of the comic. This Kickstarter will allow time to be freed up from other projects to produce the novel and it's spin-off. The product should be easy to reproduce and the printing should be a simple task as we have a company lined up already for both the paperbacks and the hardcovers. I'll keep everyone posted on updates as they become available.

If theres ever a complaint about a product you receive we have no issue sending you a new version.
