Killtopia is a cyberpunk comic series set in a neon-scorched mega city in future Japan.
Ten years ago, the city’s Sector K district was suddenly ravaged by an infestation of killer Mecha. In the present, the district has been rebranded as KILLTOPIA, the world’s hottest bloodsport.
Heavily-armed bounty hunters called Wreckers come from around the globe to earn sponsors and hunt Mechs in Killtopia for money, fame and power. The public watch in awe, worshipping the Wreckers like gods.
Our story stars a rookie Wrecker called Shinji who hunts Mecha illegally without a permit to pay for his dying sister’s medical care. While on a routine hunt he encounters Crash, the world’s first sentient Mecha.
They both realise that Crash’s unique code could be the key to curing a deadly nano-plague that is killing humans around the world.
Once word gets out about Crash’s code, the pair are then both hunted like fugitives across the chaotic metropolis by Wreckers, android killers and Yakuza gangs in a violent battle royale to end them all.
The series has been created from a love of Japanese culture, dystopian fiction and the work of Japan’s finest videogame developers – all qualified and culture-checked by family members and friends living in Japan.
