Colonel Liberty!

So, I wrote a movie.

AND I convinced some of the most talented people in the comic book industry to help me build an alternate history to support it.

Basically, ColonelLiberty is a film about the death of fictional character, and the devestating effect that death has on one of his real-life, flesh-and-blood fans.  It’s a story about obsession, devotion, fiction and how much people rely on all three to get themselves through the day.

Cubed Root Films (Sunny Disposition) is producing it.  Taylor Genovese is directing.
