Story:

One of the galaxies most dangerous criminals, Neamus has just escaped from a prison ship called the Carrion. Shortly after Neamus escaped he detonated a bomb that caused terminal damage to the spaceship letting all the prisoners on the ship free. Now it is up to Captain Thark and his trusty robot Quarx to see to the safety of his crew and prevent anymore prisoners from escaping. These events lead to new challenges, characters and exciting subplots in this amazing 1st issue of the Spectral Void.

More Comic Info:

The Spectral Void Issue #1 is 23 page full color comic done entirely in digital. It is a fun, family friendly comic with mild violence. The Spectral Void comic started out as a webcomic but was always intended for print. The print version will include artwork that is not available on the webcomic. You can view some of the comic on my website at www.spectralvoid.com and have also included some additional Spectral Void comic art at the bottom of this page

Message from the Creator/Artist of the Spectral Void:

My name is Chad Thomas and I'm the creator and artist of the Spectral Void. As an artist most of my time is spent working on children's book illustrations or people and pet portraiture. In my spare time have been creating the Spectral Void comic as a means to freely express my creativity.

I'm very proud of how the comic turned out and would like to share the adventure with you!

The main reason for launching the comic on Kickstarter is because Kickstarter helps independent artists like myself fulfill dreams and projects that might not otherwise be possible. With your help and support any profits that are made will go towards printing, convention fees and to help begin work on issue #2.

There are various reward levels available to support my comic

Some of these rewards are:

  • digital and physical copies of the Spectral Void issue #1
  • prints
  • original artwork
  • create an alien or robot for issue #2 (My son created an alien for issue 1 and thought that it would make a great reward)

My kickstarter goal is $500! Would really like to surpass the goal so when the goal is met will start adding stretch goal rewards.

Some of the stretch goal rewards are:

  • alternate cover
  • additional prints
  • extra pages in the comic

Thank you for your time and support. Hope you join in the adventure and enjoy the Spectral Void!

Risks and challenges

Upon starting the kickstarter the Spectral Void comic is over 3/4 of the way done and almost complete. There are 5 pages left to do which will be finished before the kickstarter is over.

The only delays that could occur would be if there is an immense amount of original art requests with the Original art reward. Gave an extra month to fulfill this reward just in case.

If anyone has any concerns or questions will be more than happy to answer them for you.
