What is Coronary?
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.

"Saavedra and Peñalba have shown off talent that is so precise, it could only be described as raw, attention to detail as natural as blinking. All three creators deserve a seat at the table with the fabled Big Dogs: if Image doesn’t want the finished product, Dark Horse will." -Fanfest.com
"[Coronary] intrigues, excites and leaves you wanting more.'' -Chris Sanagan, creator of Group of 7.

Coronary: Episode Two is part of what will become a fully fledged Graphic Novel.
With the funds we can complete the second episode, to the best standard. It will be a full color, 28 page comic book that 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.
To celebrate forty years since the launch of Voyager Golden Record, we are participating in the Project Earth initiative. Coronary explores what it means to love, and what place it has in a rapidly modernizing culture. While this are extremes, Coronary strikes a chord with those feeling the pressure of increasingly demanding societal norms. It'll show future generations what it was like to live in 2017. With luck, we'll look back at a project, part of a movement that was destructive towards destructive ideals.
Risks and challenges
Our previous project has gave us a great deal of experience dealing with issues during production. While not going too far into it, we had an incident with a construction nail and the sole of our artist's foot.
We've been working professionally on comics for years, and are accustomed to producing them to a high standard.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
