 Plastic surgery is free. London is gripped by madness, dominated by cosmetic surgeons, lifestyle coaches and pill-pushers. Within this insanity, a neurotic businessman reconsiders the course of his life when a freethinking outsider crashes into it. But she doesn't want him, or anyone. 

Justin must put his business aside and concentrate on what it means to live, love, and be loved in return. He created an unattainable standard for women that drove them to buy his miracle pills and pushed them into the arms of his surgeons. Due to this, he has enemies both legal and criminal, that want to end ventures permanently. Throughout this chaos, Luna hopes to help him achieve redemption, while he's still breathing that is.

Early concept art for Justin and Luna.

Coronary: Episode One will be the first of what will become a fully fledged Graphic Novel. 

With the funds we can complete the first episode, to the best standard. It will be a full color, 28 page comic book that we hope will grow into a full twelve issue series. 

We need the funds to cover paying the artists, printing the copies and get them shipped out to you. Joel Saavedra and Damian Panalba are complete professionals in their field, and they will produce the beautiful artwork for the project.

 SAMPLE ARTWORK: JOEL SAAVEDRA

Here are a few samples of Joel's work. He will be working with me for the pencils, inks and lettering for the project. He will also be helping with additional material that will complement the episode (Interviews, sketches and the like).

 

SAMPLE ARTWORK: DAMIAN PENALBA

Damian is a trusted collaborator of ours, and he will be dealing with the coloring of the comic. His artwork is equally fantastic, as seen below.

 

 

Thank you so much for giving us a look and if you want more updates on Coronary be sure to follow @RyanBurkeWriter on Twitter!

Risks and challenges

Joel, Damian and I have been working together or coming up on two years, so I am adamant we can deal with the problems that may arise.

The timeline of events, in regards to production, proofs, shipping etc. has been made deliberately long in order to overcome any challenges.
