About

The story takes place in Victorian Era London. The characters that occupy this story are humanoid insects. The nations of this story are governed by bees. The bees use their honey and royal jelly supply to control and subjugate the other insects. Vespula is a yellowjacket that serves Queen Victoria as her personal detective. Vespula's personality borders on sociopathic tendencies. He uses his rank to enforce the strict social hierarchy. In the story Vespula must investigate the case of a missing baron. Vespula is a dark thriller inside the mind of an elitist sociopath. The story is 30 pages long with 18 pages of artwork.

Risks and challenges

This will be my first Kickstarter project. I hope to meet the expectations of the readers so that I may follow up with a series for Vespula.
