Revenge of Animals Graphic Novel
What is ‘Revenge of Animals’ project?
Crime! Mystery! and Animal Rights! in one extraordinary Graphic Novel!
I am reaching out to the RocketHub community in the hopes to join forces with us and make this important project a reality for following reasons:
‘Revenge of Animals’ is the first graphic novel with an animal-theology topic!
‘Revenge of Animals’ is the first graphic novel with a vegan detective!
‘Revenge of Animals’ is the first graphic novel drawn in a straight line!
This intelligent and exciting album is created to keep attention to the very end when the evilmasterpiece conspiracy against all the Animals is unveiled in the finish of investigation!
A story about the brutal murder of an innocent girl and the mysterious fire at a bankrupt slaughterhouse leads us into Egypt and supernatural events. Unsolvable tragedy is becoming more and more complicated on each subsequent page.
A typical MacGuffin plot device, a desired object in this amazing crime story is ‘All-seeing Eye’, the crystalline peak of the pyramid model that the protagonist pursues. But to become a real, magic from the ancient Egypt needs blood sacrifice of the mass scale, animal or human.

During my research on the documentary movie ’Animals: A Parallel History’* I became aware about strange phenomenon which I have called ‘Revenge of Animals’. Some would simply called Karma, but it’s an inexplicable phenomenon that is repeated throughout human history and leaves a mark of serious consequences.
The Great Chicago Fire was my first inspiration for the story. After the Great Fire, Chicago Tribune reporter Michael Ahern published the story that the fire started when a cow kicked over a lantern while a woman was milking it.
The fire destroyed the city’s business district, but it left the stockyards and the new packing plants on the South Side untouched. Known as the “Hog Butcher of the World,” Chicago’s stockyards processed more meat than anywhere else on Earth.
But, the next fire was merciless. WBBM Newsradio 780’s Regine Schlesinger reports on Dec. 22, 1910, a horrific fire broke out in the Union Stockyards. It came to take the lives of 21 firefighters and three others. Within little more than an hour, that fire would grow to engulf warehouse No. 7 of the Morris & Co. plant. Then, in a few horrendous seconds, it would turn the nearly windowless brick building at 44th and Loomis streets from just another meat-packing operation into a graveyard. Until the collapse of the World Trade Center’s twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001, no single disaster in the history of the United States claimed the lives of more firefighters. Also, a larger fire occurred on Saturday, May 19, 1934, which burned almost 90% of the stockyards.
There are many examples of possible Animal vengeance, like a fire in Luna Park, Coney Island, after the electrocution of Topsy. Luna’s devastating fire happened on August 12, 1944. It started in the park’s scenic railway on West 12th Street, but the cause is unknown. Hetztheater in Vienna was burned in a fire in 1786, where was ‘Even the gentler sex watched in greedy anticipation for the poor animals to be torn to pieces’. (A description of the Hetzamphitheater in a letter dated 11 March 1776), and fresher example, such as the Tsunami March 2011, entering deep into the cities across the bay and rivers, destroying the ports and fishing boats. The biggest killers of mankind in history are rats, chickens and pigs. These animals by viruses that they transmitted unintentionally caused countless millions of victims. The flu pandemic known as the Spanish fever lasted from the month of June in 1917 until December 1920 and took with it between 50 and 100 million victims worldwide, which was then represented as 3% of the total population on earth. However, the biggest pandemic in history was the Great Plague, also known as the Black Death, and the first case of this disease was recorded on the European continent in October 1347. The total number of deaths from this disease is estimated at 80 million, and only in Europe at least one third of the population died.
I’ll be looking to create the best looking/feeling books that money can buy. Their specs will be:
- A4 297 x 210 mm or 11.69 x 8.27 inches.
- Softcover 46 black & white pages of story content
- Matte Pages
- Filled with awesome supernatural action!
Thank you so much for taking the time to browse this project and for making ‘Revenge of Animals’ the BEST Graphic Novel project that it can be! Only with YOUR help can this book become a possibility!
Each contributor will receive a PDF version of the graphic novel after the crowdfunding campaign and a dedication in Impressum!
