Wild Frontier is a science fiction mystery comic series set in a futuristic urban metropolis known as Capitol City. Citizens live in fear, as everyday bodies are discovered brutally mutilated. 

The story begins when Agent Sykes is assigned to special task force Black Raven, whose sole purpose is to catch the mysterious serial killer responsible for the murders.  As Sykes visits each new crime scene, he learns more about the killer and uncovers a conspiracy to conceal the truth about the murders.

The inspiration for Wild Frontier comes from my love for Science Fiction and complex storytelling. The series has a retro 80's feel with cyberpunk anime and manga influences.

A killer is on the loose! The citizens of Capitol City live in fear. Everyday a new body is discovered brutally mutilated.

What can you expect from Wild Frontier?

Wild Frontier takes place on the planet of Eros. The planet is recovering from a devastating civil war which has destroyed the nation of Tiberia. War orphans and refugees are now fleeing the fallen nation in search of a better life. Many have chosen to relocate to Capitol City, the largest City on Eros, but many Capitol City citizens are opposed to the shear number of refugees entering the city. 

There are fears among politicians that the civil unrest will result in riots and other acts of violence. To make matters worse, a serial killer has begun killing at random. Everyday, a new victim is discovered brutally mutilated and citizens confidence in the Capitol City government is at an all time low.

In order to counter the growing threat, the President of Capitol City orders the creation of special task force Black Raven, which is dedicated to catching the mysterious serial killer. Chapter 1 follows Agent Sykes as he arrives for his first day on the case as the newest member of Black Raven. 

Nothing about this case makes any sense. The killer leaves no witnesses or any forensic evidence. There are no suspects. Further more, Sykes suspects a member of Black Raven is sabotaging the investigation, but why and who? As the story unfolds, the truth will be revealed!

Will Wallner (Creator / Writer): I grew up in South West England and spent many years living in Los Angeles as a rock musician. I love nothing more than to spend time with my pets or to plug a Les Paul into a loud Marshall amplifier.

The inspiration to create Wild Frontier came from many nights staying up until 4am with my cat Coco while watching classic movies from the 80's. This is my first comic, I hope you like it!

Risks and challenges

There are always risks with Kickstarters, that is why we have set a relatively low goal. A lot of the work has already been completed, so we just need a bit of extra funding to finish the project. You'll get plenty of updates to see how the comic is progressing.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me directly at willwallner@hotmail.co.uk - you can ask me anything, cheers!
