StarMage #2 (Canceled)
Darien Connors is the key in a war between magical alien races. Join him as he discovers his secret legacy and untapped powers.
Great news folks, we have completed artwork on StarMage #1! So we are now updating this Kickstarter to cover printing costs of issue #1 and the production/printing for StarMage #2.
Please note, because some rewards already have backers, I am unable to update them but if you select a reward that mentions a digital or print copy of StarMage #1, you will ALSO receive StarMage #2.
Check the backer updates for new artwork for StarMage #1!
Sorry for any confusion.
What is this Kickstarter For?
This Kickstarter is to finance the production of the 22 page print issue of StarMage #2 as well as printing costs for both StarMage #1 and #2.
Why Do We Need Kickstarter?
To get professional quality art work from an awesome artist it is a significant investment. This kickstarter is to fund the production and make provisions to release StarMage#1 and #2 in print.
No matter what, we will find some way to make Darien live, this kickstarter would go a long way in to helping us get this project off the ground and into your hands as quickly as Ray can draw!

The series centers around Darien, a gifted 14 year old boy that discovers that he is not human and part of an ancient war between alien magical races. While he learns of his legacy, destiny and importance to the battle, Darien establishes bonds with new strange friends and learns his magical craft of Kishpu.
Issue #1 is Darien's Origin Story
This issue shows us the power that Darien wields...
The enemies he will face...
The Forbidden Love...
And the losses he must endure...
StarMage is Magic...
Fused with Sci-Fi...
But mostly...it's fun!
Issue #2 is a continuation of that story and an introduction to the magical world of the Sarru Kishpu.
What's In it for You?
Awesome rewards! We have 19 reward ranges for you (and one I hope no one picks) so you have plenty of goodies to choose from. This includes my Darien Connors Bible which if all goes according to plan and StarMage takes over the world, could be used as currency in the New World Order.
We also support kicking it forward!
Risks and challenges
Fulfillment could be delayed by the usual...personal sickness, family illness, psychotic episode, killer clowns, blind bus drivers, wormhole swallowing the Earth, alien invasion, an invitation by the Doctor to join him in the TARDIS and the Rapture (I'll still be here, but you might not).
But fear not, even if we fly off in the TARDIS, we will make a trip back to get you your reward!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
