The graphic novel will usher in a new age for Australian based superheroes (and villains). We will also be unveiling a select range of merchandise including action figures and clothing.

It’s been a very long time since Australia had a superhero it could call it’s own. Introducing The Iron Outlaw, a being of immense power and near-limitless abilities – if only it’s unwitting symbiont Tom Gunn can master these seemingly unfathomable abilities. He’ll need to learn quick as Tom’s ascendancy parallels the awakening of a world-killer long forgotten. Stand by for The Rise Of Iron

Synopsis

Thomas Gunn thought he was just another ponderous twenty-two year old university student. One night, while assisting at the State Library of Victoria, Tom decides to wear the famous armour of Ned Kelly. Struck by a massive psychic blast he awakes dazed and confused to discover Australia’s most prized possession has vanished. Valued at over one hundred million dollars, Tom is accused of theft and is now on the run. Cornered at a train station he makes a break across the tracks and gets hit by a sixty carriage freight train. The train derails but Tom escapes! Seems the armour wasn’t stolen. Instead it was assimilated into Tom’s DNA. At times of peril his newly awakened abilities allow Ned Kelly’s armour to manifest. Once formed it creates an impregnable psychokinetic shield which grants Tom incredible strength.

But for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

In central Australia, an ancient evil stirs under the weight of it’s primordial tomb, Uluru. Cracks have appeared in it’s prison thanks to secret British nuclear tests in the 1950s. Buried for over forty millennia, this obliterator of human life now has a new food source – seven and a half billion of them! Can Tom Gunn come to terms with his new found powers in time to discover a way to defeat the impending Darkness?

Excerpt

Uluru (Ayers Rock)
Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park

A faint pulse. A pause, inexplicably long, then another beat. The beast had lain there since time immemorial but it survived. And it dreamed. Always the same dream full of screams. Billions of souls suffocating, drowning in rivers of blood. The nature of the dream gave it reason to exist. It knew it would rise.

Lying there crushed in the red dirt it sensed change. Long gone were the ancients that deceived it. It possessed the wisdom of the ages yet it was troubled by a single thought. How did those simple tribesmen summon such a colossal goolie?

Flattened by a mighty fist aeons past, its revenge was fuelled by the vision of a world it dared to annihilate. It seethed. It plotted terrible retribution on the children of the ancients, all the children. Revenge. Blood. Death. Very brutal death.

It fed on hate, anger and most of all fear. As humanity continued to turn on itself, each day it grew stronger. And it knew that once reborn into this new world it would never go hungry again.
