About this project

I've always had this dream of always creating my own comic and holding the printed book in my hand! I have been working on a short 3 chapter story for the last 3 years--penciling, inking, lettering and coloring each and every page.  If this project gets backed, you can have the whole story in the palm of your hand too!  All pages are 100% Full Color!  Thanks to the encouragement of all the wonderful people online, my awesome readers and my friends, I'm finally taking the leap and trying to use Kickstarter to get the story PRINTED

I plan on creating a lot of extra material, such as a fanart gallery from amazing talented fans, sketches, process snapshots and extra artwork! 

That being said, the story is still available at Manga Magazine to be read, free of charge! :) 

ERA : CONVERGENCE

GENRES

SCI-FI  - MANGA INFLUENCED - ACTION - COMEDY - DRAMA

My friends like to describe it as a cute story with dark undertones!

PREMISE

The story focuses around a man named Velias who is incredibly loyal to his company, Darkwood Incorporated, and will do anything he can to protect it.

Unfortunately, things go bad for him when a rebel girl, Sakura, finds enough evidence to take down Darkwood for good.  This leaves Velias with no other choice but to kidnap Sakura's younger sister, Suzuran, to use as leverage. 

But Suzuran is the most clueless, hyperactive girl that the world has ever seen!  Will Velias stand a chance against her? Or will Suzuran's innocent personality end up warming his heart?

02/09/2013 - HIT 150% UPDATE!

Thank you so much! I never thought I would even make it to 100%, much less 150%!!!  As a huge thank you, I'm sending every backer a Chibi Suzuran Button/Pin!  

Someone had asked me for a Thank you and a Digital PDF option, so I added an $8 pledge option! :D

All backers will now receive a free bookmark in addition to the button! :D 

Thank you so much for reading and your consideration! :D

Risks and challenges

Getting something printed is one of the most hectic things ever. That being said, I've worked as a production artist and a graphic designer for the last 6 years of my life, so I'm hoping that I'll have the ability to get a book printed independently with ease!

I hope to also create some extra content for the book as well! But I'm confident that squeezing in all this extra work won't be a problem for me!
