About


The Synthetic Series:  Ne Plus Ultra is the first book of an eight book series with a unique premise. It is a graphic novel using photo realistic images using actors and locations to tell the story. Imagine the first Mortal Kombat game and how they used actors to play the characters and added the special effects and how groundbreaking that was! It is the same concept with this book. Each image will be a fully colored photo-realistic image in a graphic novel format. 

The funding will go to getting the proper photography and editing to make it a reality. The funding will also go into the distribution and promotion of the book to get it to the largest market possible. 

Imagine it as a film production as in getting the actors, film locations, costume, special effects, marketing, and distribution.

Every backer will get a credit in the book and a will get a chance to appear in the book itself being forever immortalized in print.

The Book:

 Taking place in an alternate early 1950s, after numerous wars, a doctor by the name of Lincoln Broxley discovers a genome that can be unlocked to give an individual, special abilities. The government sets out to test his experiments to create a team called Ne Plus Ultra. The experiment proves hard to control however, putting Dr. Broxley at ends with the government. He seeks and finds an ancient artifact called “The Amaranth” that gives whoever possesses it, unlimited power. Using this, he creates a team of his own called The Synthetic Seven to save the world the way he feels it is needed to be saved. His forceful ways set in motion a devastating future.

Risks and challenges

I have set a target release date for the graphic novel to be released in Summer '20. With it being a large project, it will take time to get it perfected before release. Most of the characters have already been cast and a lot of locations have already been set. The only thing slowing the process is that I am not blessed financially, however I believe in the project so much that I am putting everything I have into it to make it happen. Worst case scenario is that it might be pushed back later than Summer '20 but I am fighting to get it out asap. Hopefully even before the target date.
