Hey Atlanteans and all of our Earth Station One listeners! Yours truly, JC De La Torre of Transmissions From Atlantis, has launched a kickstarter campaign for our comic book StarMage.
You can find it here: http://kck.st/10BwYDB
Star Mage is about Darien Connors, a gifted 14 year old boy who discovers that not only is he not human but he’s part of an ancient war between alien magical races. While he learns of his legacy, destiny and importance to the battle, Darien establishes bonds with new, strange friends and learns his magical craft of Kishpu.
The first series consists of all of these elements as well as setting up the mythology of the Sarru Kishpu, the world of Eridu and their enemies. We’re introduced to Darien’s three friends – Unura, Tirwa and Anthaar – each aliens with their own powers that become crucial in the end game against their hated enemy Orasmas Xul Sarrum. We’re introduced to the school – Lambdu Kishpu. We learn of the hierarchy of the royal court and parliament of Eridu. While the story starts on Earth, we will be taken to the far reaches of the galaxy, meet new races and discover strange new worlds.
The first issue was illustrated by comic industry veteran and ultra-talented Ray Dillon, whose credits include the Game of Thrones webcomic, NY Times best selling graphic novel The Last Unicorn and RL Stine’s web comic series.
We’re hoping to fund the completion of the first book and begin Issue #2 of the six issue mini-series but we can’t do it without your support!
If you’re unable to assist monetarily, passing the word to your comic loving friends and fam will be just as good!
Appreciate the support folks, thanks!
