What Is Transdimensional?

Art by Federico De Luca (DARK HORSE PRESENTS)

TRANSDIMENSIONAL is a 4-issue sci-fi/horror miniseries, which will be published as a full graphic novel by TPub Comics, who have given the world other dark delights such as THEATRICS, TORTURED LIFE and TURNCOAT. These were all successfully funded using Kickstarter, and I hope Transdimensional will follow suit.


The story focusses on Deacon Price, an emotionally broken underwater archaeologist who charters an expedition, under false pretences, to a downed Soviet submarine that's been missing for decades. What he and his crew find there will not only put their lives at risk, but also the lives of everyone they've ever known! The story gets progressively darker, more intense and horrifying as it goes along, leading to a gory and harrowing conclusion.

Who is the creative team?

My name is MICHAEL GORDON, and I'm a comics writer from Northern Ireland. I have had short stories published in a few anthologies in 2016 (OUT OF THE BLUE: A COLLECTION OF CAMPFIRE TALES from Stache Comics; CHRONICLES OF TERROR and TALES FROM ORBIT from WP Comics). This is my first full miniseries, and I couldn't be more excited. Seriously. I'm giddy!

I've been incredibly lucky to be able to collaborate with an amazing art team on this project. HENRIQUE PEREIRA, a Brazilian artist who is part of the awesome Inkstand Studios, is handling the pencils and inks. The colours are provided by JAN WIJNGAARD, who also worked on both THEATRICS and TORTURED LIFE for TPub.

All 4 scripts for the miniseries have been completed and edited by the comics maestro that is Neil Gibson (TABATHA, TWISTED DARK), and the pencils/inks for all 20 pages of #1 are complete as well. We have 5 pages fully coloured, which I am showcasing here and on our Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Why Kickstarter?

We are taking Transdimensional #1 to Kickstarter in order to fund the remaining colouring of the book (15 pages), and for doing a good-sized print run of the issue. Any money raised past our goal will be put straight back into the project and will help fund the art team for the subsequent issues. We want this project to be as awesome as possible, and with the help of the Kickstarter community, it will be!

What are the rewards?

We've got lots of awesome rewards for our backers! Take a gander:

- Simple PDF copy of Transdimensional #1

- Super high-quality print copy of #Transdimensional #1

- 'Evie's Diary' PDF - A prose extra, filling in some of the backstory before #1 begins. Find out how Deacon and Grace's relationship fell apart, all through the eyes of their sick daughter Evie's diary entries

- An original fully illustrated commission from Federico of whatever you want (again, within the limits of good taste). That's pencils, inks and colours, people!

Check out some examples of Federico's amazing art below:

'TWISTED DARK' Volumes 1 - 6

Writer: Neil Gibson

Artists: Various

Twisted Dark is a series of interconnected psychological thrillers, perfect for fans of twist endings and comics that reveal more on the second reading. Each story stands alone, but the more you read, the more connections you see between the characters. There are over 100 characters that appear more than once and one of the joys of reading is when you spot a reference that you know others will have missed. A rotating team of talented artists draw the stories, with each style offering something new.

'TORTURED LIFE'

Writers: Dan Watters (LIMBO, DARK SOULS) and Neil Gibson

Artists: Caspar Wijngaard (LIMBO, ASSASSIN'S CREED) and Jan Wijngaard (THEATRICS)

Richard can see how you’re going to die. And he hates it. Cursed with visions of death, he decides to take his own life... but instead finds himself plunged into a conspiracy involving, murder, cults and a quest for immortality. He’s having a really bad week.

'TABATHA'

Writer: Neil Gibson

Artists: Caspar and Jan Wijngaard

Tabatha is the story of Luke, an LA postman, but with the customary twist that readers have come to expect from writer Neil Gibson – Luke is also a thief, going back at night to rob empty houses on his route. Unfortunately for Luke and his friends, one night they decide to rob the wrong house and things begin to spiral out of their control...

Risks and challenges

Any risk in this project is minimal. All 20 pages of #1 are pencilled, inked and lettered, and 5 are fully coloured as well. That simply leaves 15 remaining pages to be coloured, then the comic can be printed and sent out to backers ASAP! The other rewards have fairly quick turnaround times as well, so I wouldn't foresee any problems getting everything out to people by June 2017.

This is my first Kickstarter campaign, yes, but it is not the first one run by TPub/Neil Gibson. His insight has proven invaluable and as he is grizzled veteran when it comes to Kickstarter, he will be there to lend a helping hand should I need it!
