New British Comic - 'Mary Boys'

(1/10) > >>

Karl Stephan:
Hi everyone,

I'm starting my crowdfunding campaign in September and wanted to spread the word.

Mary Boys is about four teenage Knights Templar from a backwater English town at the fag-end of the 20th century. Their guardian and mentor is an old Catholic priest named Parrish who raised them in the ancient Templar traditions after an attempted robbery left him with a bullet in his skull and flashbacks to a past life when he was a member of the original Order of the Knights Templar from the 13th century.

The Mary Boys are quadruplets born with a genetic condition that enlarged hands and feet, distorted facial features  and prevents them from growing body hair. It also affects the way they metabolise alcohol. So, drinking beer endows them with almost superhuman strength and endurance (unlike the rest of us who just get plain old drunk).

Basham, the boys’ home town, is a town riddled with many social problems thanks to a huge retail corporation driving out small businesses, cutting jobs and leaving large sections of the community at the mercy of criminals. Parrish believes that the town will suffer a great biblical apocalypse unless it is purged from its evils. So, the boys roam the streets at night with their
cricket bats, heavy boots and lager cans to bring in some needed salvation. The mysterious
image of the Blessed Virgin is ever-present, guiding them in their fight against all kinds of
gangsters, hooligans and wrong-uns, including the Basham’s own police force.

This Indiegogo campaign will cover the first two issues, which contains their origin story and introduces the major characters and themes.
