Terralympus is now funded and it's great to be able to announce some stretch goals. With your help, let's see how far this project can go. Additional stretch goals will coming soon. Keep watching this space!
Mia is one of the best engineers on Terralympus and there's never been a problem that she can't fix. It started out as a normal day with Mia showing Hanna (the new engineering recruit) the ropes. However, Mia stumbles upon a hidden conspiracy aboard Terralympus which could have serious consequences to all aboard the space station.
Is this one challenge that Mia can't overcome?
Terralympus is a 48 page B&W graphic novel printed on 150gsm glossy interior paper and a 250gsm cardstock cover. (For those unfamiliar with gsm, I'm a bit of a paper snob and this is high end paper!)
What's great about Terralympus?
This is the perfect graphic novel for anyone who loves science fiction grounded in reality, compelling characters and an exploration of what lies out there in vast realm of space. Your help and support will bring this story to life!

Check out some sample pages from Terralympus as Mia leaps into action! (And to answer your question, of course there are cats in the future.) The artwork from Von Randal is incredible.
