One Step Closer to 617: Logo

Two guys, one kitchen, a few beers, and two notebooks. For the past few years, we've been writing non-stop to give you the comic book you always wanted. No capes, no zombies, no aliens, but a comic book about characters and the exploration of their beliefs. A comic book where story is king. The birth of our stories began with our oldest, Shepherd. We decided to try a second story, No Rest for the
Wicked. Our most recent story and definitely our strongest one is 617.

Here's the premise: A plane collides with another in midair and the group of survivors crash into the Rocky Mountains. From there, it is something of a road story; the group trying to get back to society and what happens when they get back to “civilization” (it’s extremely crucial that "civilization" is in quotes). As they are attempting to trek down the mountain the group splits apart and comes across survivors from the other plane as well as many characters who know much more about their predicament then they are letting on. It’s sort of a mix of Y: The Last Man meets Christian and Norse mythologies. It is also (perhaps most importantly) a literal clash of Technology vs. Religion. You’ll see Valkyries, The Four Horsemen (who are evil/questionable historical figures you’ll certainly recognize who are attempting to earn their way back into God’s good graces,) Fenrir the Wolf, a few choice Angels and even the good ol' Antichrist makes an appearance (who may not appear as you might typically think about the Anti-Christ). We blend a lot of different mythologies and attempt to find the answer to "Life, the Universe and Everything" (hint: it's not 42).
