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 and having been inhabited for over one million years. Malsevians are the superior species amongst the planets in Triversa-Prime as well as the guardians of the three galaxies. Their technology is far more advanced than any planet known in 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 called Malharwa, 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 child is placed before the sphere to see if they can withstand the overwhelming power of the sphere. Once he or she passes the ritual they will possess the ability to see the future for 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 Trillion galaxy pledging 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 through space 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 into 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 witnessed the evolution and prosperity of mankind. During this time he met with the 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.
Book 6 " The Duel "
The story continues where Dr. Kampoor just completed the final stage of Malharwa, the Malsevian ritual of becoming one with the stone. He now knows that his destiny has been revealed by the shard of foresight. he must warn the other "chosen ones" of Malvectus's plans to destroy Earth if they do not stop him.
Meanwhile, Lygar has finally acquired the Draconis serum and is planning to use the serum to immortalize himself. Malvectus has just located the sphere, somewhere in the Himalayan mountains. He will finally meet the "traitor" that he has been searching for his entire life.
Back at the old incinerator factory, McCoy is alive and has been transformed by the serum. He is angry, tired and thirsty. The only thing on his mind is finding Lygar and the White Wolf who sealed his fate in the blazing inferno. He will soon realize that his newly transformed self will have it's advantages and disadvantages.Janjak , the mamba king, is planning for a complete takeover of the city and there is no one left to stop him; so he thinks.
I was very surprised from the public's interest and the support I got from Kickstarter for Books 1-4, that I am happy to say that I will keep going until i reach book 9. I am also happy to say that 3 local comic shops are stocking my comic books on their shelves.. Which is AWESOME!!!
The Extra funds that I receive from every program will go towards the completion of the 200 page graphic novel of The Draconis Project. I will offer all loyal backers an opportunity to receive the final 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 decided to make an acknowledgement page inside the comic book for all of the loyal backers and artist who contributed to making this project a success.. So every time the book is printed the customers will see the full support and contributions that you made..
You can only get the signed limited number first print hard copy of the Main Cover on KICKSTARTER!! Once these are gone, you will get the second printing of the books on all future campaigns. I am only printing 25 numbered copies of the Variant Covers for every issue of the Draconis Project for the new campaign. After that they're GONE!!! So if you want one of those please pledge for them, if we don't meet the stretch goal..

Here is the new CROSSOVER COVER that I am offering if we meet our FIRST stretch goal.. The cover was penciled and inked by Verlei Batista and the colors were done by Oracle. I had him do a mix of comic colors and paints for this cover..
My first color comic book ever!! My PROMO book..
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 from books 1 and 2. It was a basic script layout that I was going to use but I wanted to add more to the story to make it more science fiction. 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 have decided to self publish all of my own comic books instead of paying the big companies 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 it will appear on all of the books in the Draconis series.
