The Dark Pharaoh Rah has recently conquered the lands of Memphis and needs to rebuild it as the Capital of the Kemetic Empire. He needs citizens like YOU to answer the call. Will you serve the God King and bring the lands of Kemet to ever greater glory?!

"Serve me and you shall be bathed in the riches of the Black Sands of Kemet."

"Make sure to look out for our foreign allies, the Minoans, Kushites, and Phoenicians. They bring riches and wonders the world has not seen but they are as shifting as the sand. You must seize the opportunity when it presents itself."

 

 

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

Written by Manuel Godoy and drawn by David Lenormand, Kids 2 Kings 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.  

 

 

 

At first, we wanted to simply keep production going as we built the brand, but after seeing the huge appeal we have with our community on Instagram, we decided to raise the stakes.

We will first secure the next couple of issues and then we will make the push toward making an animated pilot for NETFLIX. With an animated pilot, we will easily be able to pitch for a TV series for kids 2 kings on their network and others.

Black Sands can be the next Dragon Ball. All the characters are unique and have their own motivations. The Ancients (aliens that rule) all have goals they wish to force on humanity. The ground work is laid out for epic confrontations, not only between gods, but between nations!

Now let's meet the crew!

 

 

 

 

 

 

All characters have long backstories and very complicated histories. Here is an example with Seth...

 

The journey includes the capital city Kerma of the Kushite Empire, the capital city Memphis of the Kemetic Empire, the world famous port of Akrotiri, Minoa, the Caverns of a Fallen Titan, and the terraformed peaks of the Greek highlands.

 

 

Episode 1 – Pride of the Prince ( 2 issues )  

 The crew travel to the Kushite Empire to prelude their King. Things get heated pretty quick as Ausar sees Bes, the prince of Kerma. They have a long running rivalry between them and once fought 5 years ago. Ausar challenges him to another fight which takes place in the courtyard far above the streets of Kerma. We see everyone’s abilities on display in this episode, are introduced to some cultural scenes in the Kushite Empire, and handle a small crisis when Auset has problems controlling her power. The city goes into a panic as a giant storm ensues but she is stopped before she can do too much damage. After the mayhem, the children are told to end it for now. Ausar would not have that though and insist they fight right now. Bes and Ausar trade blows in a brutal fight that leaves most of the palace walkways destroyed and a small section of the market destroyed by a falling star (Ausar.) Before Ausar can return he is met by his mother and his grandfather Rah. He tries to lie to Rah but Rah knows all and punishes him swiftly with a chop of incredible power. Rah sends them back to Memphis and the kids reflect on their actions while journeying down the Nile river on a royal boat.  

Guest Appearances: Apedemak, Bes, Amesemi, Nuit, Rah, Aso.

Some Scenes

 

Episode 2 – Leave it to Seth ( 2 issues ) 

The crew meet their father in Memphis, who is active ruler while Rah is away. A string of attacks in the Western Nile Delta commands his attention as the local military cannot handle it. He goes but warns his children to stay out of trouble, as they are grounded for causing so much mischief in Kerma. Ausar is furious with Tehuti for telling on them but Tehuti pays it no mind. A missive comes from Minoa requesting aid from Memphis with their best warriors to handle a ver dangerous situation going on in the cliffs area of their island. Ausar takes this as an opportunity to prove he is fit to rule and demand they go to Minoa. The problem is getting past Montu and Anhur, who watched over them while the King was away. Seth devises a plan to get away and hilarity ensues at the extremes he must take to deceive two gods. 

Guest Appearances: Geb, Montu, Anhur, Bastet, Anthos, Sobek

Reach the funding goal to unlock the teaser to Episode 3,4,5, and 6.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

The only real risk we have is getting our backer rewards out on time and in an orderly fashion. This is something almost all kickstarter projects have to deal with.

With that being said, there is clearly no doubt that we will finish our next issue and whatever goal we reach with the best possible quality simply because we already did it once for a full issue, animated, composed, and SFX'd. Let's make something epic!
