“The Canadian”, comic book about Black Canadians’ experience

(Just Ended) Commander Rao

While the campaign is over you can still pre-order a copy on Fell Hound’s Gumroad.

Set in a sci-fi future after a decade of warfare against the despot Baron Klaus, a rogue embittered soldier decides to storm the Baron’s manor and kill him herself. A year later, stories are sung of her heroism, but the mystery of her motives remain. Thus begins the tale of COMMANDER RAO, a thrilling fast-paced action comic of how violence begets violence, and how all the heroics of warfare are meaningless in the eyes of what has been lost.

Commander Rao is a 36-page dystopian oneshot told through blazing action and minimal dialogue. Inspired by animated fight scenes from shows such as Legend of Korra and Castlevania, the aim was to create a unique, cinematic action comic with a focus on flow and dynamism, while still telling a deeply personal story of broken friendships and survivor’s guilt.
