The mission of Warcorns Division is to organize, equip, train, and validate forces to conduct full spectrum special operations in support of Pegasus Corps, Allied Universal Support Commanders, and other friendly government agencies.

Warcorns deploy and execute six distinct and multi-functional missions including unconventional warfare, direct action, counter-insurgency, special reconnaissance, counter terrorism,and security force assistance.


A Brand New Series (kind-of)…

While Warcorns: Combat Unicorns for Hire is an entirely new series, their debut in this issue is directly tied to the already successful comic book series Franklin and Ghost. If you are unfamiliar with Franklin and Ghost, educate yourself and return when you are intellectually and emotionally ready to proceed. Or, I guess, you can just read the synopsis of Franklin and Ghost below…

 Franklin and Ghost Synopsis:

In a last-ditch effort to see more of the universe before accepting their inevitably boring lives as miners on their home planet Defilion, Franklin and Ghost steal a ship and head out for one last adventure.

When they accidentally crash to Earth, they seek shelter in the bodies of a couple unsuspecting hosts. Hell bent on having a good time, Franklin and Ghost team up for the rage-filled quest of a lifetime. But if they aren’t careful, they may leave a bloody trail of breadcrumbs easily followed by those who would seek to destroy them for disobeying interplanetary protocol.

From creator Garrett Gunn on what he wants fans and backers to get out of Warcorns: Combat Unicorns for Hire:

Fun, bro. So many people are obsessed with creating the “next great comic book” that most of them forget to let their readers have a good time. If you are familiar with me as a creator, or with any of my projects, you know that I put an enjoyable reading experience above all else.

I want people to love my characters. I want them to bond with them. I want them to hate them. I just want you to feel SOMETHING for them. But mostly, above everything, I want you to walk away from reading one of my books saying “Dude, what the fuck did I just read?”

I’m pretty sure this book is guaranteed to garner that response.
