It is an age of STEAMWORKS & SORCERY, MAGICK & MACHINERY, RANCOR & REVOLUTION.
Join the mysterious witch LUNA LUMERE as she seeks out the long prophesied HARBINGER, a college dropout who unknowingly holds the key to unlocking an age old secret.
Together, along with a sundry gang of adventurers, villains, and scoundrels, they will traverse the dark and dangerous world of HELM, in search of the legendary BASTARD KING, and rouse him from his slumber.
HELM is a webcomic series set in an ancient fantasy world that has undergone an industrial revolution in the past 200-300 years. Racism and riots run rampant, “magick-makers” are mercilessly hunted, the elves have all but been eradicated, and rumors of rebellion stir amongst the half-breeds and downtrodden peoples of the Commonwealth (formerly called the Helmic Imperium).
Our story follows the notorious Luna Lumere, wanted for a laundry list of “crimes against the Commonwealth” as she evades capture and sneaks aboard a train carrying Eldrick Spellsong, Jr. Eldrick, unbeknownst to himself, is a “magick-maker” and destined to become the Great Wizard of a new age — one who will guide his allies to the hiding place of the long lost Bastard King. It is believed that the slumbering king, once awoken, will overthrow the Lord Helm and crown a new leader in his place.
