Commander Rao is a 28-page dystopian one-shot told through blazing action and minimal dialogue. Inspired by animated fight scenes from shows such as Legend of Korra and Castlevania, the aim was to create a unique, cinematic action comic with a focus on flow and dynamism, while still telling a deeply personal story of broken friendships and survivor's guilt.

Described as “sci-fi John Wick with grappling hooks”, it is a comic for anyone who enjoys sci-fi/dystopian genres, intense action sequences and character driven narratives.


Set in a sci-fi future after a decade of warfare against the despot Baron Klaus, a rogue embittered soldier decides to storm the Baron’s manor and kill him herself. A year later, stories are sung of her heroism, but the mystery of her motives remain. Thus begins the tale of COMMANDER RAO, a thrilling fast-paced action comic of how violence begets violence, and how all the heroics of warfare are meaningless in the eyes of what has been lost.

Who is Commander Rao?

Born Kasey Elizabeth Cormack and once a decorated captain of the Resistance Army, little is known about the Commander otherwise. Never one to compromise, she eventually left the army to pursuit her own causes against the Baron, fighting under the new name of COMMANDER RAO. Although her ruthless heroics gave her name renown throughout the land, the girl behind the armor remains an enigma to this day...
