Sophia Saturn Mini-Series
Sophia is ready to start her adult life until she and her friends get sucked through a wormhole in this coming-of-age space adventure.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Fri, November 9 2018 6:00 AM UTC +00:00.
“Sophia’s grand plan has a wormhole in it.”
High School graduate Sophia Seaton is about to take her first steps to adult life, until she and her friends get pulled through a cosmic wormhole and into the middle of an inter-galactic war. Will Sophia fight to return to the life she has carefully planned or will she embrace what lies ahead in this unexpected journey?
Sophia’s structured world is rocked to the core, when she learns that even the best laid plans are destined to be broken, in this all-ages coming-of-age story.
Sophia Saturn is a four-issue mini-series written by K.J. Kaminski (THE RESISTANTS, HYPER-ACTION) with art by Ben Herrera (X-Men, Superboy, HYPER-ACTION), & colors by Ross A. Campbell (Wayward, Pathfinder, THE RESISTANTS).
We've already printed Sophia Saturn issue #1 and debuted it at this year's San Diego Comic Con. This campaign is to fund the printing costs for issues #2 and #3 (with #4, the final issue, as a stretch goal). We are finishing up the final production for issues #2 & #3 to have them ready to go to the printer after this campaign concludes. We are working on the artwork for issue #4 and any stretch goals may take additional time.
The entire team has been working really hard on this series to make the best comics possible. All of us are so excited to see it finally come together. We hope you all will enjoy this space adventure as much as we did making it.
Issue #1 features two spectacular Variant covers by veteran artists Drew E. Johnson (Wonder Woman, Star Wars, Supergirl) & David Williams (Spider-Man, Batman, Wolverine).
We are offering Extremely Limited Special Edition Kickstarter Exclusive Black & White variant covers. Witness the incredibly detailed line art and discover the artists' unique ink techniques. Available with the series in a set or with the Biggest Bundle grouped with all the Big Blue Comics.
Sophia and her friends' first adventure unfolds in a four issue mini-series. Issues #1-3 are 24 page books containing 20 full-color story-pages . The conclusion to this first arc, issue #4, is a 36 page book with 30 pages of story. Special pin-ups by guest artists for the stretch goals and other bonuses will be announced if added during the campaign.
In the year 2356 humans have pushed out to the remote edges of our solar system. A mining colony on Saturn’s moon Titan is staffed by the working core of the 6500 inhabitants. Designed to emulate western earth culture, the community’s Titan High School is sending out its first graduating class.
Sophia is a 17-year-old High School senior living a full and balanced life; top of her class and a star lacrosse player. She is popular and well liked by her class mates, but not interested in typical high school drama. Sophia is always busy working on her future, but always makes time for her parents and closest friends. She believes that planning and preparation are essential for a successful life and has enrolled at a university back on earth with the intention of moving there in the fall.
But Sophia's grand plan has a wormhole in it.
