WIRED VOLUME 1 COVER
WIRED VOLUME 1 COVER

WIRED is a noir science fiction piece with elements of horror, that is loosely based in Scotland.

Set in a world where things 'are' usually what they appear to be, two detectives, Briggs and Smith, investigate a case that leads them to a West Lothian industrial estate.

Needless to say they are pulled into a world of subterfuge and mystery, while questioning their own existence and grasp on reality.

The grind house short above was originally shot back in 2011 to promote the comic, and actually serves as a prelude. Some people from Edinburgh may recognise the location.

Originally, issue #1 was launched back in 2012 at London Super Comic Con, where it was well received. It sold over 120 copies throughout the weekend, with people wanting to know when the next issue would be available.

However, due to a few small things such as establishing Edinburgh Comic Con (www.heroconventions.com), we put matters on hold, so we could do things properly and release the story as a completed 75 page volume rather than separate issues.

All the artwork is complete, with the dialogue currently being added to the master files. Once this has been finalised, everything will be sent off to the printers.

PREVIOUS PRESS: Upon our initial release, we actually received a reasonable amount of positive press, and were featured on numerous blogs, as well as Downthetubes and Bleeding Cool.  

These are relationships we will look to rekindle, while reaching out to other establishments

Risks and challenges

This book is ready to go, and I am only asking for funding to take it to press. Every penny pledged from supporters will be used to print the book, and I will NOT be taking any salary from you pledge.

The only risk involved will be having to potentially wait an extra week or so for the final product, as we want to get the dialogue and narrative right.
