People in pigeon comic? That’s nuts.
you know my name not my
Overwhelming desire to become a pigeon. Words cannot express my dire need to have beautiful grey feathers and glorious wings so that I may fly and feast upon dropped hotdogs and breadcrumbs.
I’m living the dream
Sharing the final synopsis for Crumbs. I’m hoping it sounds a lot more like a story worth telling than it was before. Let me know what you think and feel free to reblog and spread the word! Thanks to everyone who does <3
In the city of Wingview, the pigeon population was thriving. A noble organisation known as The Breadwinners, formed by the carrier pigeons of the War Times, had a goal to protect their fellow pigeon and once again become humanity’s faithful allies. To their dismay, the human race appears to have advanced and progressed without them. But the Breadwinners were optimistic and promised to be there when society needed them.
One summer day, a deadly toxin fatal to pigeons was secretly released into the city in order to lower the pigeon population. It worked so effectively that the council decided to release it once a year. Two years on, citizens are confused and dismayed at the dead pigeons on their streets one summer’s week every year but the majority don’t question why. The pigeons, however, have realised that this is no coincidence.
Now, the Breadwinners still aim to stand by humankind- but their priorities have turned. When the time comes, they are aiming to protect only the ‘strongest, brightest and bravest’ of their kind, turning their back on the weak and injured. If the only the best pigeons are left to provide assistance they believe humanity will see the error of its ways.
Meanwhile, an underground organisation has been developing elsewhere. ‘Crumbs’ has become aware of the Breadwinners less-than-honourable plans and once the purge hits, tries to save as many pigeons as possible. With the help of a young, disillusioned ornithologist who knows about the toxin, Crumbs is prepared to provide help for the weak, a foil for the Winners and hopefully an end to the pigeons annual purge once and for all.
Year three of the toxin approaches. And Crumbs will be there to pick up the pieces.
