About this project

The Sci-My Lie is a series of 6 independent comic books... written and illustrated by The Man from Tallahassee of CAFcomics @ CandyAppleFox.com

Issue 1 is 80% complete.  Nov 21st 2016.

All 6 issues have been designed and story-boarded.

This campaign is primarily designed to Kickstart issue 1 only.

There are some rewards that will support the series as a whole.

This is a science-mystery tale of suspense and wonder and its 'cultural footprint' will be one made of rich discussion, debate and investigation.

Set upon Sunset Ridge in Carnival County, we follow the work of Virtual Mission Specialist: Fflur Silvestre (aka Silver) as she manages the finer logistical details of a complex mission to teleport digital matter from a distant solar system... using the most powerful telescope technology in human history.

The process of which will deliver a view of another habitable world in real-time, overcoming a distance of over 1,400 light-years and answering some of the most important questions in modern science.

It doesn't take long for the mission to become extremely complex and dangerous.  I guess we'll see how VMS Silver handles it.

My ultimate hope is that; this book will be the beginning of my journey as a professional comic book artist... and you can be a part of that. 

You can be a passive passenger, or an active participant in my monstrous moving march towards 'victory'.

Both print and digital versions of this product are available to support, with additional content planned for release throughout the 6 issue run via CandyAppleFox.com

Join us in the pursuit of answers and start at the beginning.  With me.  Right now.

Your pledges will be feeding and fueling a fire of pure intentions. 'The Man from Tallahassee' is a pseudonym.

The project’s only creator is an Englishman based in Cambridge in the UK.  He is 34 years old.

His artwork -- from an early age -- was always based on character.  He studied art, graphic art, photography and architecture and seeks to learn new techniques and stories every day.

Your money will be used to kickstart The Man from Tallahassee’s professional career as a comic book artist, and since this is the only thing that he’s ever wanted to do... rest assured that every penny will be respected proudly, rewarded thoroughly and received with pure gratitude.

We will be using your money to fund a dream and we take that very seriously.


 

Risks and challenges

Since the finished product will be created by just one man... the risks are minimal.

The Man from Tallahassee will be managing this whole campaign from Cambridge in the UK.

Distribution into Europe, the US and Canada may be slow.

Issue 1 is 80% complete.

All 6 issues have been designed and story-boarded.

I am committed to delivering this book, and all 5 following books.

This is The Man from Tallahassee's (my) first Kickstarter campaign.

There is no approval required from any third party. There is no pre-market review required from an outside company or agency, before I can distribute rewards.
