Free Fall Comics is an Australian based, independent comic book company created and owned by good friends LA Keim and Brian Kerr.
As a company, we wish to strive to create new, original and compelling stories & characters with real depth. We don’t want to shy away from controversy or pushing the envelope, going where others fear to go.
In our first graphic novel series, we have many strong female protagonists. This story was not created with a conscious decision to create a strong female lead, it simply came about as part of the creative process. The characters were born into the stories we created around them.
A big part of this is thanks to the women we grew up with and the incredible actors like Carrie Fisher (Princess/General Leia), Linda Hamilton (Sarah Connor), Geena Davis (Samantha Caine), Sigourney Weaver (Ellen Ripley) and more!
Due to our young age, we had no interest (concept) of ‘gender boundaries’ when we fell in love with these characters. This went a long way to normalizing heroines for us. These women kicked ass! We didn’t think this was weird or out of the ordinary, there was no reason to us why they wouldn’t. I guess what we’re trying to say, what we want our readers to know is, we approach writing all our characters the same way, as a character first and as a gender second.
We aren’t just dissatisfied by the generic, cliché “heroes” who currently flood the market, we are downright bored with it. Though this doesn’t mean we write controversy for the sake of it. All our topics serve a purpose for pushing the story forward, to develop deep character and meaningful stories that just may inspire our readers. However, it is not all serious business and we still like to have a lot of fun with our characters and the situations we place them in. This is, after all, fiction, fantasy, escapism for ourselves and the readers.
Moving forward, we have so many amazing and unique stories to share and we need to mention now that yes, our first few stories to be released are not intended for a younger audience although we are already working on stories more appropriate for all ages to enjoy. Brian has two young children and Lucas has nieces and nephews and like so many Parents, Uncles & Aunties out there, we love to share our passion for reading and creating with them we want to make our readers get lost in the worlds we create and fall in love with the characters who inhabit them.
