Crowd-Funding Comics: Sebastian Hawks—Creature Hunter
Sebastian Hawks – Creature Hunter, that’s who!
Sebastian Hawks is a turn-of-the-century professional adventurer and creature hunter; he’s ready to take care of any monster menace that shows its ugly face. But before he can help you, he needs your help over at Pozible.
A creative bunch of Australians want to introduce you to a swashbuckling hero who is part Indiana Jones and part Allan Quartermain. Sebastian Hawks – Creature Hunter is set in 1900 where Queen Victoria recruits Sebastian Hawks to hunt and capture twelve mythical creatures for the British Museum, creating the world’s greatest menagerie.
Hawks has to be quick on his feet as he isn’t the only hunter tracking these creatures. With the help of his mentor Sir Royston C. Hammersbottom and his butler Benoit Carné, Sebastian accepts the challenge and the rest, as they say, is history.
The team behind Sebastian Hawks – Creature Hunter is almost as impressive as the story itself.
Created by Greg Mclean (writer and director of Wolf Creek and Rogue and the upcoming Wolf Creek 2) Sebastian Hawks – Creature Hunter will be written by Tristan Jones (writer of Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters) with art by Christian DiBari, (who has professionally worked for DC Comics, Marvel, BOOM! Studios and Top Cow Comics), and it will be published by Gestalt Comics.
