Wallace House is a fantasy comic that roots in the superhero and nerd culture of our times. This evocative comic book features several characters immersed in their dreams and living in the turbulent Pacific City, a place dominated by crime and deception. The style of the drawings is voluntarily characterized by the mix of traits of different artists, who alternate in the plot in certain moments to give a fun, thoughtful and definitely eccentric spirit to the work.
"My name is Santana, friends call me Santana. This is our Kickstarter campaign to print the first issue of our adventure. Adventure? It'd be better to call it a tragedy since we all here have lost something valua... Who cares! If you really want to know about it you should support us in this campaign, I'm tired to do the talking. Move on."
In a sick society ruled by criminals and delinquency, the youth of Pacific City have just two choices: be victims of the system or join it. None of the two options grants them a rosy future, so many young look for a shelter in a world of fantasy, where they live like heroes and heroines, where it is still possible to hope for justice, where hope still exists.
The young indulge themselves in their imaginary worlds until they can no longer distinguish them from reality, but aid may come from Wallace House, a facility that can provide help and shelter to the most needy young. Or at least that's how it looks like. What actually happens in Wallace House? Why do some of its guests begin to show unique abilities that transcend human limits? Meanwhile the city is controlled by the Smile band, led by the eccentric Lullaby. Arika, an orphaned fighter with a dire background, is tired of the cynicism and the that apathy pervades the city. She decides to step in and declares war on the crime of Pacific City. Inevitably, she will clash with Smile band: a conflict with unpredictable and unexpected results.
Wallace House shows how heroes are not just made by superpowers or huge wealth: this story tells about the potential that each of us has got within themselves. The comic tells about out-of-the-ordinary (as all of them are) young and teenagers willing to prove themselves; their becoming heroes is a metaphor of their confrontation with the real world. Their encounters that are always an opportunity for growth, teaching them how to react and fight the hardships that life subjects us to. Our passions and dreams are a source of courage, perseverance, and desire to prove ourselves. In the plot there is an animal component with a fantasy twist, with a place for the love of the characters and their pets too.
The instinct of protection and the will to live together each adventure show a very strong tie and the affection between human beings and animals. Wallace House is a story in three volumes of over 85 pages per volume. A comic book suitable for all ages, enjoying the mix of many elements coming from the superhero tradition and the nerd culture. A comic book that delivers an original story with a brilliant finale.
The stylistic differences and traits, with lively and thoughtful plots, follow the different characters in their self-discovery by interweaving their adventures with the central narrative thread, giving thus rhythm to the story. In short, the perfect mix of humor and action, combined with a healthy dose of realism and introspection.

Introduction to the characters
The mysterious leader of the Smile band. In a few years he succeeded in imposing himself as the kingpin of Pacific City. Tormented by a troubled past, he floods the streets of the city with his anger and his drug, bringing hundreds of young to destruction and killing anyone on his way. What hides the heavy makeup that covers the face of this sadistic and eccentric character? What links him to Wallace House?
A melancholic middle-aged man who seems to have lost interest in life and other people. This troublesome guest of Wallace House with a grumpy and brusque nature is the nightmare of the recovery institution's staff. Much older than others living in the nursing home and apparently without psychic problems. What does he share with the others at Wallace House? What holds him in the building?
Don't call her snotty. The girl could cut you in so many pieces to challenge the best tartare of the most starred chef in the world. So graceful as lethal, the girl can't stand anymore the dreariness in which Pacific City collapsed and decides to clean it up with martial arts and the steel of her katanas. What is the real reason behind her fight against the crime? Why does he fight against it with a cat on her side?
"Beware of the cat... He bites!"
