TELL: The Legend returns!

Updates: Friday

Switzerland in the near future of the year 2032. Years of financial crisis and war have brought the once flourishing country to the brink of collapse. The gap between rich and poor has widened to the point where the majority of the people were living in poverty and misery. Violence is the order of the day and the only remaining political party, the SPP (Swiss Party for Peace) has no intention to turn things around and possibly risk their monopoly status.
One day a gigantic creature that seems to have an uncanny resemblance to the Swiss national symbol TELL appears in various parts of the Zurich. Battling criminals and crooks he seems to be on the side of the common people to restore law and order. The citizens see in him the long awaited savior and patriotism awakens again. Finally there is a hero to fight for the rights of the people. But who is this TELL? And what are his true intentions?

TELL is not a historical or literary adaption but a cutting edge superhero story in the tradition of The Dark Knight Returns and Watchmen.
