City run by a hierarchy unravels when a sole survivor of a dying resistance exposes the lies behind the robots that work in the city
This is my comic, 'Lies My Motherboard Told Me'. The story is simple, but the delivery is a fun, and interesting ride! More about the story below!
Where is the money going?
Having self published 2 of my own comics (One being Issue 1), printing can get expensive. So I plan to pay for printing Issue 2 in order to distribute to comic book shops around the Austin area. Being an independent publisher, I buy the shelf space at, usually, a 70/30 cut. Meaning that the store keeps 30 percent of every book I sell. I will also distribute my comic at varies conventions around Texas to get people interested in the comic. The money will also pay for the rewards that I am offering to fund my project. As I plan to use Ka-Blam.com to print, they offer awesome sketch covers for me to draw out an original piece of artwork on the cover of my comic! That sounds like fun! Not to mention all of the other cool stuff! Lastly I will use the money as payment to my loyal, hard working and very talented colorist, Riham Zakaria. When I had the money, I paid her to color my first issue and she did an amazing job on it! She graciously offered to color my second issue with no rush of payment. She works so very hard at making my comic come to life with such vibrant colors and amazing quality, it is only right she gets paid!
Isolated utopian city run by a hierarchy soon unravels when a sole survivor of a dying resistance exposes the lies behind the robots that care for the city.
That is the story in a nutshell.
Due to nuclear fallout and the devastating Proximity Virus the world's population is reduced greatly. The atmosphere is left too poisonous to breathe, so the survivors come together to build a domed city suitable for sustaining life. Still being affected by the virus, most people are forced to live their lives through a robot surrogate. These surrogates become the new working class as the city is built. Artificial wombs are created to procreate as human touch is not an option. Many years pass and the city grows into a breeding ground for greed, which is where we find our protagonist. Zita vows revenge on the corruption of the city after losing a dear friend to it. Along with the help of Able K-Sector, Zenith, and robot Hazard, she acquires the strength and courage to go up against the Army of the 3rd Tier and stop the 1st Tier Families' from corrupting the system; exposing the truth of what they have done.
Here are the main Protagonists:
I plan to have this be a 5-6 issue series with room for spin-offs and side stories if the interest is high enough.
