The Feature

THE ORIGIN OF THE FEATURE

Born from the ashes of the Cold war and the Reagan era, James O’Barr envisioned Jonny Z, and the dark gothic cyberpunk future he inhabited. Initially bringing these characters and their stories to life in short vignettes, O’Barr created several graphic stories, vivid and cinematic.

He then developed the overall story for Frame 137, a post apocalyptic tale drawing on influences from the music, art, and literature of the day, tempered by the insights of William Gibson, and James’ own dark gothic cyberpunk interpretation of the Wizard of Oz. From this O’Barr fashioned a treatment that would be the basis for both the proposed graphic novel series, and also a feature length motion picture.

 

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WORLD

6 years after the DOS, society retreated above the horizon. Existing in ivory towers above the stratosphere, the corporate constructions of a New Age.

These are the Frames. Ten were built, the largest fell, and their existence insured life went on, for those who could afford it. Those that couldn’t, remained amid perpetual night, living beneath the icy crust of the planets surface, in cities transformed beyond all recognition.

Beneath the towering shadow of the first Frame, lies old Detroit – The Detrtz, once the Arsenal of Democracy, now the abandoned bastard child of AIS, it has become Americas great anarchic state. It is here, at the dawn of the new millenium, that Jonny was born.  Twelve years later the story of Frame 137 begins.

FEATURE SYNOPSIS

Jonny is a killer, he smokes, drinks and uses drugs professionally. That’s what it means to survive in the Detrtz. A firm believer in Humanity 1.0, Jonny is what Darwin dreamed of, and he has made himself one of the Sixth Circles best assassins, despite being entirely meat.

When Jonny discovers an unusual Beat taking place, curiosity gets the better of him and his whole world is turned upside down, when Jonny suddenly finds himself in possession of an unlocked Heavens™ ICS.

Immediately set upon, Jonny and his young ward Jac, a six year old slave girl he rescued, find allies in the mysterious cyborg Blixa, the charismatic DL, Big T and the lovely but lethal Slinger for the Snakehead gang, Danielle.

The group sets out to find a way into the Purgs, and after making contact with the status cards creator, Hertzog, they are led on a path of destruction against one of the city’s Grey, led by none other then Archon herself, one of Jonny’s former enemies. The outer circle becomes a battlefield as the group makes plans to offline the most secure sector in the Detrtz.

But can Hertzog deliver on his promise and even if he does with only one Heavens™ ICS, what will victory mean for those that remain?
