Killtopia is a comic series set in a futuristic, neon-scorched Japanese metropolis. In this version of the world, the city is overrun by an infestation of killer Mechs – hulking robots that are slowly terraforming the city into a hostile jungle environment,
Corporations, governments and criminals pay bounty hunters called Wreckers to enter the hub of the infestation – a zone called Killtopia – to slay the Mechs and retrieve their precious high tech scrap in exchange for money, fame and glory.
Our comic series focused on Shinji, a rookie Wrecker with crap weaponry who hunts Mechs to pay for his dying sister’s medical care. One day he meets the world’s first thinking, feeling sentient Mech – a robot called Crash.
Quickly, both Shinji and Crash are wanted fugitives, on the run from Yakuza gangs, robotic Kaiju monsters, android samurai and a range of Wreckers with larger than life personalities.
They find themselves thrust into a deadly conspiracy that threatens to end the world. Can they escape capture long enough to save the planet and our species from total extinction?
