Xenoglyphs will be 30 chapters long compiled into 5 Volumes. Xenoglyphs has been featured in local comic book stores.
The series has already released six issues and been distributed around the world. Then as a sequel series, Separators was released. Now, for the first time, we are bringing everything under the Xenoglyphs title.
Fans have been asking for the complete series and I thought it was the perfect project to Kickstart.
Completing this dream wouldn't be possible without your help!
We created an animated trailer for fans to learn more about Xenoglyphs and the Separators who make sure the stones don't come together.
The first 3 volumes with issue 1 remastered and TWO variant covers.
The Xenoglyphs Starter Pack includes the entire first eighteen issues of the comic, as well as the remastered issue 1 with variant covers for only $60.
Each book is standard graphic novel sized with the title and volume number on the spine which will fit perfectly in your bookcase. Inside, the comics are arranged two-per-page, side by side, on quality matte art stock. Each comic is printed from my original, high-resolution Photoshop files and is accompanied by the title and original publish date.
Xenoglyphs follows Steven James and his best friend Dom Jenkins as they try to stop Anubis, the master of evil, from collecting all nine Xenoglyphs.
Xenoglyphs are stones that each control a different elemental power, and if a person holds a stone they control that element. For example, if someone holds the Water Stone they have the power to control all the water around them.
There are nine individual groups dedicated to keeping the stones separate, for if one individual held all the stones they would have the power to master all the elements and achieve divinity.
The stones have been the world's greatest secret and have managed to stay separated all this time. But, the evil Anubis has resurfaced with one goal: to collect all nine stones and remake the world in his image.
Steven and his best friend Dom travel the world, and with the help of others along the way, they work together to prevent Anubis from collecting the Xenoglyphs and taking over the world.

Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge we faced was how to begin the Kickstarter. Neither of us had any experience in the Kickstarter world, but luckily we've had plenty of experience in the comic business.
With 3 Volumes totaling 18 issues finished, we only have 12 comic issues to go. Currently, this is our only project, so you can expect no delays or shortcuts in quality. But if there are any delays you will be the first to know. Every project we've started, we've completed and we hope to exceed your expectations.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
