Man VS. Machine VS. Myth


 

The year is 1988, near the end of the bloody Soviet-Afghan war. The C.R.A.N.E. Unit’s experimental weapons test goes horribly wrong.  Once deployed, the O.T.T.O. platform malfunctions, turning the C.R.A.N.E. unit against its operators resulting in the brutal deaths of many, and the near total destruction of a nearby village.  Operators are trapped inside of their C.R.A.N.E. units forcing them to witness the extreme brutality first-hand.  An apprehensive alliance of bitter enemies is formed while village elders travel deep into the ancient caves to awaken a mythical Giant for protection.  Will man survive amidst the battle between advanced weaponry and a mythical giant?

Red Giant Battle is a 75 page graphic novel featuring illustrations by Tom duBois, the man behind many of the highest profile Konami video game box arts from 1988-1994. Also featured is early development art by LSD Illustration (a.k.a. SOMNI).

This project is currently under construction.  We will periodically post new art as it comes in.  In the meantime, you can support Red Giant Battle by shopping our Teespring store below.
