Panels from the Vagabond


The story follows the journey of a Homeless Vagabond, who gets himself into all sorts of Bizarre Situations. The protagonist is forced to embrace Vigilantism and becomes well versed in saving people along his travels, even though hes more concerned about where his next meal is going to come from.

Nathanael Hopkins-Smith (Writer)


The Vagabond was originally a short film made by the Writer in 2005. In 2006 he continued his passion for making movies by attending Film School, which eventually landed him a job in TV where he has been working behind the scenes for the last 3 years.

The type of films Nathanael wants to make requires a lot of time & money (which he doesnt have hence indie gogo campagin) So he combined his Passion for storytelling with his love of comic books and decided to turn "The Vagabond" into an on going comic series.

Nathanael is in the process of getting several comic book ideas off the ground, including "The Vagabond" so expect to see more projects from him in the near future.

Supporting Independent Comic Books

The Australian Comic Book Industry is very small and needs all the help it can get, with Australian Actors making it big in Hollywood and even playing Iconic Comic book characters such as Wolverine, Thor, Dr Doom, and Hulk, its about time we see some Australian Comics get the exposure they deserve.
