YOU did it! We are officially 100% funded! Thank you for your trust and support, everyone! With plenty of time still remaining, we'll continue looking ahead as we push towards our first set of stretch goals!
The year is 2055.
And the world is dying.
As the few remaining survivors struggle to find a cure for their now withering planet, they are forced to endure the arrival of, “THE PURE.” A mysterious new race with only one thing in mind. To extinguish all mankind and claim earth as its own.
The ROAD NORTH focuses on the story of a young refugee named, I. Armed only with her wits and trusty canine companion, Z, she wanders the harsh and unpredictable land in hopes of reuniting with her little brother, and finding the ones responsible for his disappearance.
While searching for clues to help point them in the right direction, I and Z unexpectedly stumble upon something quite peculiar and quickly find themselves in over their heads.
Hi! My name is, Joshua Covey and I am a self-published writer/illustrator currently residing in the northwest with my beautiful and lovely wife and two amazing children.
Over the course of my career, I’ve been fortunate enough to have done work for Dark Horse comics, BOOM! Studios and numerous independent creators. Most recently, with the help of backers and Kickstarter, I successfully funded and self-published the first book in a planned all ages trilogy titled, BAAKO. While I continue working on the much larger 2nd volume in the series, I am also hard at work on smaller creator-owned projects. Ones that I hope will help bridge the gap between book 1 and 2 of BAAKO.
TRN is one of those smaller projects. And with your trust and support, I hope it too, will come to fruition. At its core, TRN is a science-fiction adventure that is heavily influenced by the elements of companionship. And how far you’d be willing to go for the ones you truly care about.
TRN is an all ages book. Meaning it’s a story for everyone, young and old. Simply put, there won’t be any swearing, nudity or over the top violence, etc. Being a father of two inquisitive young children, I strongly believe that you can still tell an engaging story without the use of such things.
So, If you’re looking for a thoughtful tale with a heart and a plethora of fun and mysterious characters throughout. This is the book for you.
I've been crunching the numbers and $3,000 would be all I'd need in order to print 500, fully colored, 32 page copies, plus the added variant sketch cover copies of the ROAD NORTH - Issue 1.
- $1,600 for printing.
- $1,100 for shipping.
- $300 for Kickstarter fees.
