About

THE SYNOPSIS "PHOENIX VOL.1"

Humans, a race that has never been content with the privileges one possesses, never rest to try and surpass God. As a result, countless years of research and resources had been devoted to genetic engineering. This led the world to successfully create the next chain of evolution—inherit super powers at birth. Eventually, the number of super humans grew, leaving natural human beings to be extinct. Humans tried so hard to become something so great, but all they’ve done, is made themselves more inhumane.

Crime rates increased and greed in people's heart grew bigger as more and more people began to misuse their abilities. Ones with great power but twisted hearts gathered to enslave and threaten the weak. Years of disorders passed and those that could stand and fight rose to a war, known as "The War of Hope". As years went by, the world started to crumble. Both sides started to wither away. To salvage what was left the “Act of Settlement” was implemented. Academies were established to educate those with great power to maintain order, help control their power and preserve peace. However, as the world returns to its order, a dark force rises, to submerge the world in darkness again.

The story begins in "The Underground Lab" where Henry Emmerich, a genius researcher, attempts to reverse the effects of genetic mutations. His son, Frank Emmerich, possesses super human strength which is deemed dangerous by the Academies and is targeted by their elite forces. As a result, Henry and his partner, Lucifer, re-initiate the "Project Phoenix" to eliminate the seed of disaster their ancestors had once planted. As the story unfolds, what awaits Henry and his fatherly love attempt to untwist Frank's fate?

HOW MUCH OF YOUR PROJECT IS DONE?


"Phoenix" is about 70% completed; Most pages are drawn and requires a touch up. Even though there is a huge selection of concept arts that is finalize, we are constantly adding new ones to ensure we can draw reference from. The Wallpapers are 50% completed, our current main focus is to illustrate and polish the comic before we draw our attention to other medias. To give you guys an idea of our workload here; illustrations are being done on a full time basis, which means 9+ hours daily. I also take the honor of pulling all-nighters because I am excited to launch this project to you guys.

OTHER THINGS WE HAVE DONE:


 < We have gone through companies locally and within U.S. for printing.( So we do not fall behind and can get straight to printing after funds are received)
< Preparing proper exposures on our fan pages and social media's to ensure consistent traffic
< Recorded events/ conventions dates for distribution purpose
< Keeping an email listing for possible additional illustrators that may be needed for future references


WHERE IS YOUR FUNDING GOING?

To Publish Vol.1 of "Phoenix" and the Collection Edition artwork of Phoenix

WHY SHOULD YOU BACK "PHOENIX"?


All the funding received will go towards distribution, publishing and more importantly creating more high quality content. My passion and dreams is making comics. Phoenix is just the start of something bigger. It is a story that brings up unique themes among philosophical issues in a futuristic setting. I want to continue telling this story and with your help I can.

Risks and challenges

Our main obstacle is the cost to produce the book. Since we are a small group of people on this project, we simply don't have the funding to make the book production cost 1-2$ but we will try our best to reduce any unnecessary outputs. We chose a manga style type book because we don't want to raise the cost production too high for each book. We do want to distribute the story and the book to as many people as possible, whether you are driving a cadillac or a hot wheel. (Just a joke ;p)

WHAT OTHER POSSIBLE OBSTACLES ARE THERE?
Popularity of the book/story; as the creator of phoenix, I assure you we looked into the appeals of the story. We monitor our image views daily, and work on broadcasting/updating as many social media as possible everyday. Some of us, are doing it in spite of having a full-time day job because they wish to help this project succeed. Starting from our friends, we make as many attempts to push out of that circle as possible.

We may also face negative feedbacks being a new comic but we will take it in as constructive criticism and try to improve upon it.

KEEP IN TOUCH BECAUSE WE WILL BE UPDATING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
