Gamekeeper, an original, motion comic series launches exclusively today, 14th August on Yahoo! Screen, the ultimate video destination and produced by Liquid Comics, a digital media company that specializes in creating digital graphic novels.
The motion comic is a motion comic version of Liquid’s graphic novel created by Guy Ritchie (director of the Sherlock Holmes films), written by comic book superstar Andy Diggle and drawn by Mukesh Singh, who also drew Devi and Jenna Jameson’s Shadow Hunter, now also owned by Liquid and whose credits also include Grant Morrison’s MBX project.
Gamekeeper is an epic tale of espionage, illustrating one man’s battle with the wild side of nature — and himself. Brock is a reclusive, enigmatic groundsman who lives a quiet existence, until mercenaries invade it and destroy any remnants of his life he has left.
Now, set on a path of vengeance, it becomes difficult to tell who has more power – the man, or the animal within.
