If you are a fan of the John Wick films then this comic was made especially for you! John Wick Volume 1 is a hardcover collection of the first five comics and a bonus gallery of variant covers.
But, most importantly, this is all about the beginning, the why, and the how. John Wick may be a man of extreme focus but he is also a man with a code and that code demands vengeance.

I’m a long time fan of westerns. I grew up watching The Lone Ranger, Rawhide, Gunsmoke, and the like. The concept of man living so close to nature and constantly at odds with both his environment and other humans appealed to me for some reason. Later, my attention turned to fantasy novels and role-playing games but the love of a good story set in the Old West was always there. So when someone comes along and mixes the two, I’m always down for a good a read. Kingsway West #1 is most definitely trying its best to find a place in my heart.
I’m a regular supporter of campaigns on Kickstarter, as you may know. I support it financially as a backer, just like many of you do, and I try to shine a little light on many of them here at Geeks of Doom through Kickstarter Spotlight articles such as this one. But this little crowdfunding campaign is different from most.
The whole purpose of Kickstarter Secrets is to help other campaigns raise more money and create more enthusiasm with backers. As a company, Kickstarter helps fund a lot of various ideas, but many of the failed campaigns could have done better under different circumstances. And that’s what this campaign is all about!

Eternal Warrior went through quite a change in issue #5, sending the series from the modern day into the year 4001. The first four issues set up the story of Gilad Anni-Padda, the titular Eternal Warrior, who for generations was the servant of the Earth.
Now we see his mission in the future is to protect the people, which he does in this issue by going to a town full of slaves. Always trying to do the right thing.
