The time of humans has ended, but we have left behind a legacy.
The last of our machines are now the caretakers of the planet.
They have one law: Humanity must be forgotten.
Please note that this is the second issue of Planetarium. If you missed the first issue and want to avoid spoilers, you can check out the first issue's Kickstarter campaign, then come back here to order both issues 1 and 2.
By attempting to save the fallen shepherd, Salusa, Nineveh's forbidden interest in humanity has been revealed. Nineveh, now defiantly wearing the form of a human, searches for whoever taught Salusa to read. Meanwhile, Hari, the wolf shepherd who has sworn to protect the world from the curse of humanity, is on the hunt...
The three, 40-page comic books that tell the complete story of Planetarium are entitled, Planetarium: Dawn, Planetarium: Noon and Planetarium: Dusk. All books are printed in standard American comic book dimensions and are in full color. Month-long Kickstarter campaigns will run for each book every other month until all three are released.

Where's all my wonderful money going?
It'll go to printing. Hopefully, I'll get more than I need for the printing, but I'll also accept much, much less. I'm a one man operation and I support myself with a full time job so this is just me trying to make my books exist because I want them to exist.
About the Artist
My name is Chance Wyatt Oberlander, I'm from New York City, but I now live in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I've been writing and illustrating my own work for 16 years now. I currently have five books available that a person could read if they were so inclined: Moving Bodies (a tour through the remains of an human extrasolar colony), A Bright Day on the Dark Side of the Moon (about an otter that lives on the moon), Eat Zone (a love story set in the world's last fast food restaurant), Katie and the Flowers (which is about a katydid who wants everybody to stop eating each other) and Census (about a sad guy who drinks too much and lives in a moon.) All of my work is illustrated and is inspired by science.

Risks and challenges
There's not much risk left for Planetarium. All three issues are totally done. So are all the rewards. I'm using the same printing company that I worked with for my previous two comics. Both of those projects looked great and were delivered on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
