About

The Catalyst franchise is international spy action set in the world of an urban crime/drama. It focuses on a mercenary, Dom Cross, who is betrayed and left for dead by his unit during an operation in the Sahara. Even when Cross is no longer involved in the mercenary world, he can’t escape his makeup as a trained killer when he becomes engulfed in an underworld power struggle while hunting down his betrayers. His quest for revenge leads him to discover that his betrayal was a small part in a larger conspiracy that will force a decision between his personal vendetta or the greater good. 

Catalyst #1 is a 40 page, double-sized action comic written by Torian Tarrant. The interior pages were illustrated by Von Randal, colored by Paris Alleyne and lettered by Matias Zanetti. 

Catalyst #1 serves as a prelude to a live-action series currently in development through Tyrant Creative Media. Catalyst kicks off with Part 1; an 18 page Prologue giving an introduction to the main character, Dom Cross, as he looks back at his betrayal. Catalyst #1 sets the stage for the sequence of events that propel Cross into hunting down the Catalyst mercenaries he once called family.

Catalyst was originally created as a feature length film, and was adapted into a live action series and comic book. The Catalyst universe is vast, and will be explored in depth through multiple mediums. The Catalyst comic will serve as supplement to the live-action series, and further flesh out the universe with mini-series and one-shots.

"I was lucky enough to be able to check out the first issue early and I was definitely impressed by the high quality art and direction that the Tyrant Creative Media team is going.  The first issue felt like a crossover of the Punisher and Spawn to me."
