About this project

“Betrayed and left for dead, can Captain Jessica Torrence and her new crew find the traitor and get revenge for her surrogate family?”

 

  

 

 

 

About the Story 

Dropped into an active war zone, Jessica Torrence and her company of Blood Orchids fight the Russian occupation of Alliance outposts. When they are caught in a sudden ambush, Jessica is the only member of her crew to make it out alive. Given a chance to find out who was responsible for selling out her company, Jessica and a new rag-tag team of mercenaries seek revenge, redemption, and maybe even a quick meal.

Blue Valkyrie is set in a galactic backdrop called the Junoverse. The Junoverse refers to the new original universe created by the minds behind Nocturnal Productions. In this universe, humanity is divided into two factions, headed by what is now China and Russia. After spending centuries fighting with each other, the two powers begin to expand their reach to the heavens, and colonize other planets in our solar system. Eventually, the solar system itself becomes too small for the warring humans, and the two unlikely allies have to work together to create the technology to expand even further. They stumble upon a new planet that is similar to Earth in their first exploration, and decide to name the planet Juno. Throughout these explorations, the humans encounter many new alien species, some more friendly than others. From action and horror to romance and comedy, we will be producing a multitude of scenes upon the Junoverse stage that will, in their own way, all be connected.


About the Campaign & Rewards

Our campaign goal is to raise $7000 to cover the costs of producing the comic and the rewards. This issue will be between 20 and 25 pages.

All backers for Blue Valkyrie #1 will be mentioned on the Thank You page of the comic.

 

Stretch Goals

If we raise $10,000, we will release a short, one-shot comic about a member of Jessica's new team. This would be added on at the end of Blue Valkyrie #1.

If we raise $12,000, we will immediately begin production of Blue Valkyrie Issue #2.

If we raise $15,000, we will begin working on a brand new story from the Nocturnal library. Backers will get to vote for which story they would like to read next!

About the Creators

Nocturnal Productions is a family of friends dedicated to bringing readers unique stories from a vibrant collective of writers and artists with a shared passion for diverse storytelling. From nail biting sci-fi action to gritty crime dramas, and many others in between, Nocturnal Productions is working to bring readers stories that will stay with them. You can find us on Twitter @NocturnalTX, and on Facebook @NocturnalProductionsLLC.

Charles Kyle, the author of Blue Valkyrie, and his wife Amanda Roberts, who scripted the story, live in San Antonio, TX, where they have far too many pets. This will be the first story Charles has published, but it definitely won't be the last. His brain is bursting with stories to be told, and he can't wait to put them on paper so you can enjoy them too. Charles can be found on Twitter at @JacobNocturnal.

'Krad' (aka kradeelav) is the artist of Blue Valkyrie and a designer for an international toy company by day.  By night, Krad awakens with coffee (an excellent summoning choice) and creates other comics such as the action-adventure webcomic IRON CROWN with the popular indie publisher Hiveworks.  New artwork can be seen on tumblr / twitter.


 

Risks and challenges

The goal of this Kickstarter is to earn the funding to produce Issue #1 of Blue Valkyrie. Our goal is to put the book into production at the end of March 2017 and have the books shipped to our backers by the beginning of December 2017. Our biggest challenge right now is the completion of the art for the pages. We are working with an awesome, hardworking artist, and it should take about nine months to complete the art and create our rewards. We will be making some of our rewards by hand, and others we are going to outsource from other companies.

This is the first Kickstarter campaign that Nocturnal Productions has ever done, but we are confident in our stories and our artists.
