“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.

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 Saturn #3 - Art Pages
Sophia Saturn #3 - Art Pages

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.

 The Creators:

Writer - K.J. Kaminski

K.J. grew up in the 80’s and started reading comics at a young age. He became a regular reader with Marvel’s G.I. Joe and Transformers series, later graduating to the Marvel Universe and independent comics. Not much changed as he grew up, publishing books with the first Blue comics and working at various comic shops in Michigan and Oregon. This included owning and operating a brick and mortar comic shop, Downtown Comics. He has been a part-time convention dealer and eBay seller for over 25+ years.

K.J. has spent the last several years writing and publishing the high-action sci-fi comic series THE RESISTANTS and HYPER-ACTION with his company Big Blue Comics. He lives in sunny Southern California, while promoting his books at comic conventions all over the U.S.

Artist - Ben Herrera 

Ben has been a comic book fan since the age of 6 and he started drawing at the age of 8 and hasn't stopped since. He started his career in comics working for Malibu on a comic called FREEX in their new Ultraverse imprint and from there he's jumped around to other companies like Marvel, DC, Image, and Darkhorse.

After a brief 13 year detour in the video game industry, Ben has returned to drawing comic books with passion and many cups of coffee. Currently, he's living in Europe enjoying the sites and food(and wine) while cranking out the fun comic art he loves.
