Ku-Mighty is a deeply developed story world universe co-created by the acclaimed Starlight Runner Entertainment that taps into our Earth's mythology, legends, and secret societies and turns them all upside down. Several species and a god-like entity populate a planet much like Earth and sharing a common lineage that will be revealed as the story unfolds. This inaugural issue will introduce the reader to the Mythical-like Anthro species, their world, their plight and the omen of war, obliteration, and sacrifice.
Issue #1, Rise of the Righteous, starts with a dangerous relic-hunting expedition led by a Sage-Warrior named Pan-Ku, who, along with his band of “Collectors” have dedicated themselves to unraveling the mystery behind the planet's former god-like creators and rulers’ (the Ku) sudden vanishing while taking on a mission to secure the “power” that was left behind and up for grabs. The Collectors, and their new-found possessions, soon become targets for marauders, bounty hunters and those who seek power and dominance in the new despotic order on Esharra and beyond.
Pan-Ku (aka PK) is the epitome of a wise and courageous leader. He formed the Collectors and devised their mission, commissioned the Toros Guard and is a well-known and respected Anthro that has many allies and the same number of adversaries.
