Story:

GIRRION is a sweeping sci-fi fantasy story of a hero's journey in a distant world in a distant time. The saga is told through the eyes of Jarra, a poor factory worker who dreams of escaping his world of endless toil. His wish comes true, though not in a way he would have ever wanted, when his city is attacked by a dark entity called the Halodron. He escapes the conflict, but only to be thrust into a war of other-worldy magic and weaponry.

Amidst the destruction, history begins to unravel as soldiers of a forgotten war resurface and the secrets of a mysterious technology known as Girrion come to light as its scattered remains suddenly start to “reawaken”. With little time and resources, the hero must help save his crumbling empire from its destructive past.

New to Girrion? Not to worry! All issues will be available in this campaign.

GIRRION Book 1 The Chrysalis and the Stone is approximately 200 pages long, and is the first installment of a three-book series. Currently Issue 1- 3 are complete (pages 1 - 78). This Kickstarter is for the production of Issue 4 and 5 (pages 79 -130), but I am including previous books in some of the rewards as well.

Why two issues?

Normally I won't be doing more than one issue per Kickstarter. I'm doing this only because of the way the story plays out. Without spoiling anything, there are some important upcoming scenes and it will be better for the reader to get both of issues at once. I think it would just be more enjoyable.

Age Range: (PG - PG-13 )

- No sex or bad language

- No excessive gore. Girrion is primarily about a war so there is cartoon violence similar to the level of Star Wars, but more of it.

Rewards / Book Format:

Softcover books are glossy and have some weight to them. They are not the flimsy thin type like some of the standard comics seen at stores.

The interior art is full color and has a watercolor feel.

Longterm goals (Outside of this campaign)

My main goal is of course to finish the graphic novel. This is something I've spent years and years developing and plan to spend many more years to complete. So far I've enjoyed publishing them through Kickstarter so there is no reason to stop.

I think Girrion would be great for video games and animation as well. Hopefully after the book is complete that is something to look forward to! I've actually already started working with 3D artist on making some character figurines.

Risks and challenges

Being that this is not the first comic I've made there aren't too many major challenges with getting the book made, but there are some small ones:

Learning from the last Kickstarter campaign there were some things I had to learn in terms of submitting art to the book printer. If anything was even a little off with art files, it meant delays. Being that I have more experience dealing with them - there should be less problems this time around.

Some of the artwork on certain pages goes fast, some takes very long. There are some complex scenes in this issue with lots of characters and elements that need strong design. Again from past experience the artwork can sometimes take a bit longer than expected. Also, keep in mind I have to mix this work in with the day job.
