PRLog - Sep. 12, 2012 - FORT WORTH, Texas -- A countdown to Apocalypse has started, but there are no zombies here–just "gut-wrenching realism in what may come if America loses her way," according to the "Republic: The Graphic Novel" web site (www.RepublicTheNovel.com)
Rangers Arrive on the Old No. 3
In this near-future graphic novel, the last Republic resides in Texas as a post-EMP invasion force comes down from the northern New Union. Combining 3D models from SketchUP, vector images, and actor-based characters, Republic breaks new ground in this non-PC, post Apocalyptic graphic novel.
A group of townsfolk stem off an expeditionary force comprised of Red China and Persian (Iranian) forces led by a former American who goes by the dubious nickname of "Butcher." It turns out that the butcher was a Chicago delicatessen owner who jumped at the chance to earn a piece of the New Union pie--especially against the hated Texas Republic.
The site promises a unique blend of 3D models from Google's SketchUp contributors, characters based upon real actors, and vector-based drawings. It also promises to be non-PC which is a given from its description of multinationals invading the good people of Texas--the last standing Republic in a world gone One Government.
