Terralympus - $7000 Stretch Goal

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!

Shaun Keenan (Creator / Writer)  

Shaun is a staple in the Australian and New Zealand convention circuit under his company Comics2Movies. His first comic series XCT has gone from strength to strength with every issue building on the last. Terralympus is the science fiction series he is very proud to finally bring to life.  

Stephen Kok (Creator / Writer)  

Stephen has written about cats, dogs and dragons but this is his first foray into the world of science fiction. A childhood of Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Macross etc. has prepared him for this very moment.  

Von Randal (Illustrator)  

Von is one of the most talented illustrators currently working in comics. His resume includes Street Clothes, XCT and more. One of his passions is science fiction and working on Terralympus was an amazing experience for him.  

DC Alonso (Colourist)  

David has worked for some of the top creative companies including Blizzard and IDW. He has provided his expertise in adding the colours to the cover and pin ups for Terralympus.

P.R. Dedelis (Letterer)

P.R. Dedelis has worked on multiple projects for Sigmate Studio including Tabby and 5 Seconds. He's currently illustrating the latest instalment for Word Smith. For Terralympus, he's bringing his lettering skills to the project.

Risks and challenges
