About

"War in the Backyard" is an alternate history action packed fiction series! Written by Spike Bowan, the saga is uniquely told in the 1st person perspective as it is happening in real time. Each chapter is told by a different narrator and all of the stories intertwine. Now the Saga comes to life with the aid of Taylor Cottingham in a whole new Graphic Novel series. Taylor Cottingham is an extremely talented Comicbook artist having worked on the series "I am Michael Watcher" for GNOSIS Comics.

 Synopsis:

The country has been invaded, the U.N. is gone and the U.S. Military has been decimated! Mass executions, prison camps and traitors turning their own neighbors in to the S.O.N.;The Socialist Order of Nations. Just to protect themselves.

 The resistance is fighting back. A motley crew of veterans, police and average citizens fight the tyranny of a foreign power that has been aided by turncoats in our own system of government. Will you fight? Or will you capitulate and be a slave? 

This Action/Adventure is a non-stop, pulse pounding thrill ride! With thousands of fans already, Spike Bowan keeps you hooked from the first sentence on. The story is told from the first person perspective, in REAL TIME as it is happening by different narrators in every chapter!

Risks and challenges

Time, equipment, money, logistics; all play a large role in turning an already established Fiction saga into a whole other medium. If any comic book needs to be made. It's this series. Fans are salivating at the possibility of seeing W.I.T.B. come to life.
