MINI-COMIC IDEA: 'UNCONVENTIONAL HITMAN'
It's just another day in the life of young male, who's idea of part time job, for a ruthless inner city syndicate,
governed by a emotionless Kingpin, revolves around taking it to the streets for questionable justice practices.
This one shot mini-comic will introduce two main characters' (amongst a few others); and will become the dark comedic springboard version of
a must more elaborate future comic series.
NOT necessarily looking for this to become an extended series, YET it does have potential to carry on into the action/comedy related comic fields.
This mini-comic will be useful in launching a larger scale comic.
(which will be advertised on the back page~Artist already selected for future comic series~
Although the mini-comic's ownership rights will be mine/writer, I will give my artist rights to allow full credibility towards self promotion and portfolio.
As well as illustration credit on the project/comic.
(all sketchbook art done by artist may also be presented within the min-comic before print)
WORK I'M INTERESTED IN SEEING:

Any help that you can provide would be appreciated
Looking forward to making this a Reality!!!!!!!!
