Strap on your seat belts! Venus Rises is about to take off! Lets do this together!
Our Kickstarter campaign starts on January 11th, 2016 and ends February 10th, 2016.
Earth was quarantined fifty years ago. Since then, long-running political and cultural clashes between Mars and Venus have intensified. Talk of revolution permeates the ether. Humanity is on the threshold of interplanetary war!
The crew of the salvage spaceship Cattywompus find themselves at the epicenter of humankind's first interplanetary civil war.
Issue #1 will be 32 action-packed pages in glorious color.
THE BACKSTORY: VR was originally a web series, produced back in 2007. Relying heavily on physical sets, rather than green screen, it quickly became too costly to maintain. Production was shut down after just 3 episodes.
I wouldn't give up. I sought out other, more cost effective, avenues to tell my story... eventually deciding with comic books. This new medium allows me to ignore the budgetary restraints I had with the web show... giving me the freedom to finally match my imagination. In 2014, I adapted my remaining shooting scripts into a 2-parter comic book. This not only gave my web show a proper ending, but also served to set up the next series.
VR's next chapter starts roughly 2 years after the events seen in the web show... midst the civil war between Venus and Mars... with all new characters, new exotic locales (in-depth looks at the Martian and Venusian colonies), and an all new 'hero' spaceship designed from stem to stern.
Venus Rises... the little engine that could... is poised to become 2016's next big sci-fi franchise!
