About

The Saga of “The Archetype”: A young boy with myotonic dystrophy in a world of futuristic technology, transcribes prophecy through art and sculpture… but unlike most prophets, his creations shape and shift the world around him. He and his family live on the run from a shady group called The Corporation, but in the end, his greatest enemy might be time itself... 

Tiamaat - An Intergalactic Wonder Explained: Birthed as an expression of love, and a celebration of Life, Tiamaat was created to be the playground of the gods - outfitted with creatures of all kinds and divided in two, the planet’s hemispheres hold diverse tales told in many ways from the Life Auset and her Adversary created.

Young Heroes Undefeated aims to extend the discourse of self-empowerment and confidence to the youth of the special needs community through positive representation in comics and accommodated travel. We plan to give 3 - 5 children a year the chance to be featured in their own comic within the Dogon Universe in addition to giving them and other children like them the opportunity to travel with their families to various locations with the aid and medical attentions that they require, without financial concern.

Goals: We will use all of the funds received through the Kickstarter to pay for the art and distribution of the first comic in “The Archetype” series, as well as fulfill the Reward tiers as seen below, with 75% of each comic purchased thereafter donated to Young Heroes Undefeated Foundation, which will sponsor vacations and future comics for children in the program. As our goals come closer to completion, stretch goals and their rewards will be posted, so please stay tuned for updates!

Risks and challenges

Although Kenneth Edwards and our humble but dedicated art team have proven to be visionaries in carving out the Tiamaat Universe, additional hands are definitely needed to assist as we continue the completion of the first issue and beyond. As we continue to search for artists of different forms to contribute their individual styles and creative ideas to the project, we confidently anticipate that the first issue will be finished by the end of February, with backers scheduled to receive their copies and rewards no later than early March.
