Welcome to Crucidel Productions


Crucidel Productions is an independent comic book publisher specializing in developing, producing, and distributing creator-owned comic book properties. Crucidel is dedicated to partnering with creators to turn their artistic visions into reality. Crucidel believes that our overly commercialized society has lost its passionate voices. Crucidel believes our global community will benefit more from a chorus of creative voices as opposed to the singular voice they are offered today by the mainstream media. If you miss the passionate stories in comics where life and death mean something, you’ve come to the right place.

Which comic book genre do you prefer? Fantasy-Adventure? Crime/Detective mysteries? Historical Fiction? How about all of the above? Check out these inspired worlds from the creative talents of creator, writer, editor, and producer Wayne Gardiner.

Modern Crime Drama

Featuring a Mysterious Crusader

The only thing anyone knows about CrossStar is that he has shown up in modern day United States and attacks corrupt corporate, political, and military institutions with his fists, a sword, and cross-shaped throwing daggers – from which he was given his name. The setting for this story is not a super-hero universe but occurs in today’s real world with all of its physical limitations. The only exception is CrossStar who is observed performing seemingly impossible feats such as fighting dozens of people at once, is unharmed by bullets fired at him at point blank range, or able to walk through fire unharmed. The story unfolds from the first-person perspective of those who encounter CrossStar as they try and uncover the truth behind who he is, how he’s able to do the things he does, and why.


Fantasy Adventure

with a Super Hero Twist

Knightingail is an epic fantasy adventure story targeted towards families, teenagers, pre-teens and especially female audiences due to its female protagonist. It’s similar to Bone, Narnia or Lord of the Rings in that it’s set in a wilderness world with exotic creatures, heroes with mystical powers, and evil invaders that seek the world’s destruction. At it’s heart, the story is about how we fail when separated but succeed when we accept and embrace the differences in others. While the underlying message of unity and friendship drives the emotional backbone of the story, it’s supported by interesting, unique, but familiar character designs and amazing animation-style, full-color, detailed artwork.


Revolutionary War Action Adventure

Archetype Characters – Historical Events

It’s simple really. The British don’t belong here. They are a plague. We’re the cure. We will purify this British plague by blade, arrow, and blazing guns. That’s why we call ourselves
The PuriFires!

With this straightforward mission, a band of 6 diverse characters band together in their own militia to eliminate the British occupation of the 13 American colonies. Each of their individual, expert fighting skills compliment each other to create the most deadliest squad in the land. But is the Revolutionary War just about fighting, or is there a deeper meaning to it? Join their journey as they find out first hand from real historical figures in actual historical events. This is the real story of the birth of Amerca in a way never explored before.
