But sometimes, it’s the guy who has learned to live without dreams who is best suited to handle a nightmare. That’s what happens one morning when he wakes up to discover that the town of Charity has been invaded by a bizarre occult army that calls itself “The Trust.” No problem now in searching for the meaning of life; James recognizes what he has to do, and that’s save Charity. He vows to help the local police department come to the town’s defense, arms up and leads the revolt against the invaders. “The Trust” is a cultish secret society that’s been taking over small towns like Charity. Step by step, small town by small town, “The Trust” has an agenda of its own that doesn’t bode well for anything—or anyone—that stands in its way.
James recognizes that he’s in for the fight of his life. But he’s not alone; James has allies in his battle.There’s “Gravy,” a loud, slightly paranoid mom-and-pop weapons manufacturer, whose munitions experiments tend to have mixed results. James and the sheriff are on the same side (or are they?), but there’s a complication: the sheriff has a daughter and James is dating her.
Fans of graphic novels who have an appreciation for metal, explosions, elaborate weaponry, occult rituals and conspiracy theories that are definitely “out there” will relish this campy action comedy, written by Bitros and illustrated by J. Matthew Root.
We are looking to raise $3000 to pay for the artwork, coloring, production and distribution. Completing the first two issue, which will be both be 24 pages of full color, will take approximately two weeks to a month.
Risks and challenges
For Bitros, writing is a newly discovered passion. Although he’s toyed with story ideas for nearly a decade, he’s only recently found the motivation to commit those ideas in his head to reality. As a full-time dad and the manager of a bar, he’s working with other time commitments. Fortunately, he’s partnered with a mailing company that will work with him to distribute the product within the designated time frame. Bitros, a self-described film and comics geek, is counting on crowdfunding support to bring his character to the public. Crowdfunding can help James Contrell save those small towns.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
