About

Click the image above to buy books for this Christmas

Inspired by Avatar: the Last Air Bender, Naruto, and the Boondocks.

Written by Manuel Godoy and drawn by David Lenormand, Black Sands is a story about a young boy named Ausar whose life goal is to rule Kemet. This goal leads him on a journey to far off lands in the ancient world where he deals with the complicated issues involving wars and ancient gods that seek his death. He is accompanied by his kinfolk Seth, Auset, and Nehbet as they travel the world. The world of Black Sands is deep and the original cultures of the time are all represented in this sci-fi, fantasy retelling of ancient myths.

What to expect: Demi-Gods, Ancient Aliens, Historically accurate cultures, Various myths, and a good time. 

 ISSUE BREAKDOWN

Our heroes will face off against their guardians in order to escape the capital city of Memphis and journey to Minoa. What will they do against the strongest gods in the kingdom?

New characters will be introduced that will have major implications of the journey to Minoa. Will they be friendly or foe?

The seas are treacherous in the Black Sands Universe. What horrors await our heroes on their journey to Minoa?

Whispers of the ancients have been haunting the story for a while now but the time has come to go face to face with these devilish creatures. Can our heroes survive?

Nothing is easy in world politics. Our heroes will have to deal with the delicate situation between Minoa and their neighbors as foreign ambassadors. Who will lead the team in these times?

Our heroes are not the only ones with powers. The team will meet a new class of people, the God Touched. What will happen when they go against other humans with dangerous powers?

We want to rapidly accelerated the production of the comic books. Right now, Black Sands is averaging at one issue every six months. That is unacceptable for such a popular series. 

As such, we will have a new production schedule of one issue every two months. In order to do this, we must fund multiple issues at the same time. This is why we are doing issue 4 through 6 right now.

Risks and challenges

We may have some slight delays on production as we are being extremely aggressive on the production but rest assured, we will definitely do everything promised in this campaign, we as have in the last 3 campaigns ran by our company.
