About

Welcome to our Kickstarter campaign for Issues 1 & 2 of Aeronautica - continuing the story of a weird and wacky band of adventurers desperate to escape an oppressive regime. 

Combining genres like sci-fi, steampunk and fantasy, Aeronautica looks at the power struggle between four unique races in an airborne world of sky cities, pirate fleets and a long-forgotten, war-ravaged planet far below. 

The Sky is under the oppressive rule of the beautiful yet powerful Valadaen, who have banished the Druggans, enslaved the Koshan and reduced Humans to little more than soldiers and scavengers.  

Meet Petrus and Lucinda: 

Sky-born parents with two young sons, a small airship and a mission to find a new way of life.  

Meet Viggo:

A former Druggan sky pirate and survivor of the Great Rebellion. On a routine voyage, he sighted remains of long lost land through the clouds.    

Together, the three assemble a wacky band of misfits in a bid to find this land once more… start a new life… and escape the clutches of the Valadaen rule.  

Meet Ziathar:  

The mysterious maverick commander of the Valadaen fleet. He spotted the escape attempt, and isn’t too happy about it.   

Petrus, Lucinda and Viggo have embarked on their scouting mission to find evidence of the land below, but tensions rise as hope diminishes, and the crew begin to doubt their expedition…   

Meanwhile, Ziathar lies in wait, hatching a plan to not only catch the crew, but make a harrowing example out of them - to remind others in the Sky of what happens to deserters…

Issue 1 has been a labour of love for over a year now, and while we’re delighted with the result, we’d love to be releasing issues on a much more regular basis. That takes time of course, but the entire Aeronautica story has already been plotted out; we just need the time, resources, and financial backing to make each issue a regular thing, not an annual thing!

Issue 2 will see our friends and foes come to blows on the ground, a place full of new perils and curiosities...  

Meanwhile, Petrus and Lucinda's children wait in the Sky for their parents' return and news of a fresh start on the Ground below... 

But who will return to the Sky victorious

This project is more than a short comic, it’s a saga - and there are so many stories we want to tell, and see characters grow… experience new environments… and encounter shocking events. We’ve plotted out the major story-line, and we can’t wait to tell every step of the journey with quality artwork, and make readers just like you laugh, cry and tremble! We’d love to be releasing new material every few months or so, and this Kickstarter is to get the ball rolling. 

You haven't even met these guys yet!

Risks and challenges

Our aim throughout is to be honest with our backers. This is our first Kickstarter project, and the first time we’ve worked on something of this scale. But it’s an incredibly exciting starting point for us and we’re buzzed to bring you the next Issue.

Issue 1 is already online, and in regards to Issue 2, the script is done and Jonny has recently committed himself full-time to his freelance art projects, meaning we’re confident of a 2-month turnaround time for artwork, lettering and printing. We aim to ship all orders throughout July.

Obviously, setbacks can happen, but this project is our number one priority and we’re extremely confident of having Issue 2 ready to go in the time period we’ve set ourselves. Of course, if any delays do occur, we will keep you informed every step of the way, and say what is being done about it.

Your money will be funding the production of Issue 2, as well as the materials and printing costs to produce the wide range of goodies we’re including in our Kickstarter bundles. We own the 3D Printer and have complete control on turnarounds, materials and designs.
