Enter SALVAGE ZONE 1 . . . if you dare . . .

Comic/Graphic Novel by Troy D. McLachlan

Because Evil Never Dies . . .


SALVAGE ZONE 1 is a planned five part graphic novel/comic series that begins the journey into the surreal heart of darkness that is the future . . .

Salvage-Page-5B&W and colour artwork combine to paint a dreamlike picture of a devastated world recovering from a deadly pathogen that has killed ninety percent of the world’s population — the result of a rogue government conspiracy to re-wild the earth’s surface and concentrate what remains of humanity into specially designated Urban Centres . . .

Salvage-Page-3SALVAGE ZONES are the only wilderness areas humans are allowed to enter . . . and then only with a New World Order prospecting license . . .

It’s a tough world . . . a world where the law is a dream and only the toughest survive . . .

And now an old scourge is stalking the desperate inhabitants of the Salvage Zones — SLAVERY!

Behind this ancient crime is the mind of a monster . . . a mind that has laid buried through the chaos of time to now re-emerge into this dark future . . . a mind imbued with a love of murder—murder as a fine art!


In this dark future a war rages . . . a war for control of a resurgent slave trade . . . and for the mind’s of Earth’s human survivors . . .


It is a war fought in a world populated by mutated beings, criminal clones and cyborgs . . . the technological rejects of a failed New World Order . . . It is a war for control of the PSYCHO-SPHERE!


SALVAGE ZONE 1 explores some of the darkest secrets behind one of the most infamous murders in modern history by taking you into a nightmarish future. It suggests a connection between this murder and one of history’s most important art movements— SURREALISM.


SALVAGE ZONE 1 is a surreal-noir detective story taken from the mean streets of 1940s Los Angeles and transported into a frightening vision of a failed utopia for tomorrow.

It explores the THOUGHTPRINTS of a gifted generation of artists and how a popular philosophy of ART came to be mixed up in one of the most brutally horrifying murders in American history . . . the case of the Black Dahlia . . .


SALVAGE ZONE 1 travels into the mind of a psycho-surreal killer, and asks . . . ‘What if our THOUGHTS never die?’ . . .


Written specially for release on Amazon Kindle, SALVAGE ZONE 1 is an adventure in surreal science fiction packed full of disturbingly odd characters and bizarre settings . . .Salvage-Page-6
