About this project

A bit of the story:

In the future laws have been passed that require visual proof before an execution can be carried out.  In response to this, scientists (at the government’s request) began a process to extract memories from criminals to obtain “visual” images in order to be able to carry out the execution.  (That’s just a backdrop.)  One of the scientists involved, Dr. Dasari, began exploring other ways to use the technology.

He discovered a way for the nanotechnology to augment (or, in rare cases, create totally new) body systems.  There were a number of mistakes along the way (all of which Dasari works tirelessly to correct), but a handful of the successful subjects have formed together as a group determined to do good in the world (most of them).  Wilde, Inc., explores all of the implications of the decisions they’ve made.

Risks and challenges

As with any publishing project, there are challenges which may arise regarding the printing process, external supplier agreements, etc. However, I have published ten different texts both print and electronically, so I am knowledgeable of and confident in the process. Additionally, Nicolás Giacondino and I have collaborated before on a variety of projects, including graphic novels, illustrated books, and webcomics. Our partnerships have always been efficient and productive, so I am confident that we can manage this project easily.
