The Story:

Out of the enlightenment, both science and technology are born anew. As mankind continues to advance in scientific knowledge, breakthrough upon breakthrough compound, exponentially. Through this new technology, mankind is able to transcend its physical limitations by passing through the thought dimension and entering the supernatural.

The natural will become supernatural.  Welcome... to the new enlightenment!

The Prologue:

Page by Erwin J. Arroza
Page by Erwin J. Arroza

Minutes after a Super X58-Class solar flare (the equivalent of over a billion hydrogen bombs) erupts towards the Earth, modern technology becomes paralyzed and social stability is dismantled. As a result, several nations seize the opportunity to wage war in pursuit of global domination. The nations rage, buildings crumble, and desolation spreads to such an extent that the masses cry out for peace. A new coalition rises with an aim to rebuild and bring progress and stability back to humanity.

Page by Erwin J. Arroza
Page by Erwin J. Arroza

As peace and balance are restored, nations unite to avoid another devastating, cosmic tsunami. Forces combine in a global effort to prevent another world war. A task force is formed to probe deep into the human psyche, with the intent to eradicate man's propensity for violence. Over time, this movement grows with such intensity that it results in a multi-trillion dollar enterprise called Staunch Industries. Driven by necessity and fueled with ingenuity, technology advances to a point where we are granted access to the far reaches of our galaxy and deep into the hidden depths of our imagination. Human thoughts, memories, ideas, and emotions can now be fully explored in ways we have never DREAMED!

Risks and challenges

Staunch Ambition has been completely self-financed. All hired hands are high-profile professionals, who are well-known and working in the industry. All 22 pages of Issue #1 have been completed. If the campaign is successful, it's off to the printer and delivered directly into your hands! We are also working hard on Issues #2 and #3, which are packed full of epic action sequences and beautiful art! Along with your help and support, NOTHING can stop this from being a success!
