Transreality: New Worlds
'Transreality: New Worlds' is a graphic novel about a 21st century man exploring a post-singularity, transhuman universe.
This project is to fund the creation of Transreality: New Worlds. It will be the sequel to the 2013 graphic novel, Transreality. Here are some great reviews of the first one...
"Whilst it mixes Invasion of the Bodysnatchers paranoia with Philip K Dick reality subversion and moments that will make Transmetropolitan fans very happy, it’s science fiction that speaks with a voice of its own and does so with authority." ~ Travelling Man
"…a skilful, intriguing, complex and enjoyable, cerebral sci-fi epic…" ~ Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet Blog
"Thumping good storytelling…sumptuous…Transreality is a triumph…" ~ David Barnett, Telegraph & Argus
"This is a top-notch bit of work. You care about the characters, you’re continually intrigued by the innovation, and you are led by unexpected routes to a satisfying conclusion. What more can you ask for?" ~ Dion Scrolls, Geek Syndicate
“This is a story that anyone can enjoy whether or not science fiction is your genre of choice.” ~ David Leingang, Unspeakable Gibberer
“The highest praise I can give to any book is that it is a page turner; I was engaged and interested from start to finish every step of the way. Lackey draws an engagingly fantastic world that seems just plausible enough to be believable.” ~ Andrew Porwitzky, Sidekickcast
“Its familiar elements are given an original and thought-provoking spin by Chris Lackey’s confident craft; if you like a bit of empathy and humanity with your futuristic speculation, then Transreality is certainly the book for you.” ~ Tom Murphy, Broken Frontier
With this new book, Transreality: New Worlds, we'll follow James, Soni and Alexis as they move out of their know home reality and into the realms of splinter societies that range from the mundane to totally bizarre. James searches to find what happened to his children who lived through extreme societal changes, but will he find a place with them for himself?
Transreality: New Worlds explores more of the possibilities of a Transhuman world, where people are no longer bound by their physical needs and are able to become whatever they want. But what are we if we are not bound by limitations? Is this a good thing? These and many other questions will be explored in this full-colour, 128 page, soft-cover graphic novel.

Risks and challenges
This will be my second, self-published graphic novel. I feel that I learned about most of the pitfalls the last time around. I'm committed to getting this book finished and into your hands, and will do almost anything to make sure that happens, when this project is funded.
Barring catastrophe (my death, I'm maimed or suffer from a debilitating disease) you'll get the finished book!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
