About this project
Book 3 " The Unknown "
Our exciting series continues with the story of the Prophecy of the Protector, the Unknown. Earth was visited over 2000 years ago from an intergalactic being, a messenger from the planet Malsevia. In book 3 you’ll learn of this visit to Earth. Malsevia is one of many planets that exist in Triversa-Prime which is made up of three galaxies; The Torillian, the Faspian and the Milky Way. Malsevia is the oldest known planet to support life having been inhabited for over 10,000 years. Malsevians are the guardians as well as the superior species amongst the planets in the Triversa-Prime with the technology far more advanced than any planet in known existence.
Their mission has been to visit every planet within the Prime and inconspicuously guide and advise all species through their evolutionary cycle. A little over two thousand years ago, the Malsevian council was faced with a terrible decision that could destroy their planet as well as all the remaining planets in the Triversa-Prime. The Sect of Chronos has foreseen the Unknown, The Prophecy of the Protector, had been foretold and has begun. They Malsevian High Council made a choice to remove the very symbol of their people, the energy source of their well being, the Sphere of Malsevia. The race of Malsevians is generally made up of Lamens, Engineers, Seers and Protectors. Most of the Malsevian children born will be chosen as lamens or engineers. Once every five lunar cycles of Malto-nine a seer and/or a protector is born. These rare births are believed to be from the energy of the sphere.
These rare Malsevian children are usually born blind (Protector) or without eyes (Seer). Once they are recognized at birth, each of them is exposed directly to the sphere's internal energy source through a hypnotic ritual. This ritual opens the brain by neural-electro stimulation. The Protectors possess the gift of enhanced reflexes and senses as well as the ability to "see" the internal power of the sphere which no other species can do without permanent blindness or lobotomization. At birth, the Seers endure a barbaric ritual in which one of the encased ruby stones from the Malsevian chalice of foresight is embedded into the forehead of every chosen seer. Next the children are placed before the sphere to see if they can withstand the overwhelming power of the sphere. Once they pass the ritual they possess the ability to see the future of all of Triversa-Prime by channeling the sphere’s energy through the chalice of foresight. For over five thousand years, the Sect of Chronos; the council of Seers, have foretold a prophecy that one day a child will be born with the "sight" as a protector and the intuition of a seer. He will also possess an extraordinary ability to channel the sphere's power back into itself and then release its raw power. This prophecy has come true, this child, chosen by the sphere, is named Malvectus. The Malsevian High Council has appointed Maltyrius, the Great Seer of Malsevia, to take the sphere and leave the Torillion galaxy and never to return. The Sphere must never be discovered by Malvectus. Only the Sect of Chronos knows that he will have the ability to follow the energy source of the sphere as long as the heat signature is still visible amongst the dust particles in the galaxy. The Seer's only choice was to take the sphere far beyond the Torillian Galaxy. Light years away, Maltyrius crossed from one galaxy to another and then finally entered the Milky Way galaxy. There he searched for a planet rich in organic minerals and heavy metals, a place where he could hide the sphere. He chose Carbonia aka. (Earth). As Maltyrius stayed on earth to guard the sphere, he saw the evolution and prosperity of mankind. During this time he met with humans who were of great importance to guide and influence mankind’s advancements. Upon reaching the second millennia of man, the seer noticed that the sphere had expelled an enormous amount of its energy towards this species. It had opened the minds of five different children of five different races and showed them the future of science and technology. Because of the sphere’s unintended effects on the human children, it became Maltyrius's duty to unobtrusively watch over them and guide them until the age of adulthood. His only communication to the five chosen was through their dreams. The five chosen were: Johann Svensen (Swedish), Jung To Lee (Chinese), William Lattimor (American), Tarun Kampoor (Indian), and Kraus Kinner (German). They will one day be the future and survival for the planet of Carbonia a.k.a. EARTH.
Now that Malena is safe and out of harm's way, McCoy has to find her father before it's too late. McCoy, out of retirement, has to search the city for any clue that can lead him to Dr. Svensen. Meanwhile, Dr. Tarun Kampoor has arrived at his uncle's old run down Indian store located in the center of the international market in Downtown Orleans. He has been in hiding ever since the attack on his lab and the death of his family unbeknownst to why it happened. The only thing he carries is his faithful rug and the ruby stone of KanKar.
TO BE CONTINUED!!!!!
I was very surprised from the public's interest and the support I got from Kickstarter for Book 1 " The Abducted" and Book 2 " The Search Begins " that I decided to continue this journey and finish this story and make it into a series. I am also happy to say that 2 local comic shops are willing to stock my comic books on their shelves.. Which is AWESOME!!!
This comic book series will be in Black & White (pencils and inks only). I will start a new Kickstarter program for every book in the series. The Extra funds that I receive from every program will go towards the coloring of all eight books. I will offer all loyal backers an opportunity to receive the final 160 page color graphic novel of this series through a "SPECIAL" rewards tier that will be especially for you, based on your generosity and support for this project.. You loyalty WILL NOT go unnoticed..
I have decide to make an extra page inside the comic book for the acknowledgement of all of the loyal backers and artist who contributed to making this project a success.. So from now on every time the book is printed the customers will see the full support and contributions that you made..
** Loyal backers are the backers that have pledged 10.00 or more for every book of this series.I will also put an asterisk( * )next to your name to show everyone who has backed this project since the beginning..You get 1 * for every book you backed..
I have employed a few artist from ED BENES STUDIOS to take a great story and pencil it with some AWESOME pictures for you to enjoy.. Here are pics of FRED BENES doing the cover to book 1 of The Draconis Project..which is still available!!
Here is the Main cover for Book 3 by Milton Estevam.. I must be crazy to give these covers away but I am willing to make great sacrifices to keep my dream alive. I envy the one who will get this AWESOME ONE-OF- A-KIND signed penciled and inked covers. I hope you enjoy these great pieces whoever you are, I will really miss them..

Here is the first ever 28 page color inspirational promo comic book that Dan Gracey, Ryan Carter and I made together. This comic book consists of scripts for books 1 and 2 that I was going to use before I decide to split them into single books. It was really cool script layout but I wanted to step it up with a more realistic feel to fit my story. This was my first attempt at creating a comic book and I have to say that it definitely wasn't an easy one . I truly learned the publishing process on how to create a comic book from pencils to print. I also learned about the legal aspects and the costs it takes to actually put it on paper. I am self publishing all of my own comic books instead of relying on and paying the big dogs to publish them for me... I have just received my first registered trademark which is located at the top of my trial comic book(MidCity Comics) and will appear on all of the books in the series. Everyone who pledges 10.00 or more will receive my(Promo) first attempt at creating the dream.
Here are some pics of the different T-shirts that you will receive based on your pledge.
