About this project
What's Thorn Squadron?
THORN SQUADRON #1 is the first issue in a scifi/adventure miniseries.
This issue, and the series, focuses on Thorn Squadron, an elite all-female team led by Captain Rima Cofresi.
After the death of the Emperor, the Imperium's turned corrupt and xenophobic, expanding their reach all across the galaxy. A Resistance forms to fight back this expansion.
THORN SQUADRON follows a diverse team of humans and non-humans. Captain Rima Cofresi, a human from the capital planet of Kroywen leads Celester Quartz, Vespera Roche, Ju'vel'a'iza, Kee Wuko, and Karensinda Puig as they stop the nefarious Admiral Kiern from unleashing a terrifying weapon on the galaxy.
Who's the creative team?
My name's WILFRED ESTEVES. I'm the writer and organizer of this crazy endeavor. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, I currently live in Austin, TX with my dog, Oberon. I've been writing for years, but this is the first time I attempt something of this magnitude. Previously I've worked on short stories and submitted scripts to festivals like Shriekfest. But, I couldn't do it alone.
ALAIRE RACICOT's the artist and character designer of THORN SQUADRON. I was very fortunate to find her, as she has made a great job in bringing these characters to life. Her unique style in both character and location have been great motivation to the project and to my own writing.
Bringing an extra layer to Alaire's art, BETHANY CONSOLIVER has been doing an amazing job as the colorist of the series. Her watercolor-like work gives THORN SQUADRON the unique look I was searching for when I originally started scripting.
At the end of the day, all this would be just pages on a screen without TOBEN RACICOT, the letterer and designer. His eye for detail and organizational skills have been of great help to bring this series together.
All funds go for the production of the book, to pay the art team for their amazing work. Any money exceeding the established goal will be to fund the next issue(s) in the series. This project's already looking great, and with your help, it could reach even better heights!
Risks and challenges
The risk is minimal, as the script for all 6 issues is done as well as the pencils and inks of the 1st issue. The first pages of issue 2 are also done. Colors and letters for issue 1 are going along smoothly, with a future release of June.
This being my first Kickstarter, and first long-term project, I want to offer the best of both myself and this project.
