About

Nadir's Zenith is created and written by Jackson Compton with incredible artwork by THE Jerry Bennett.

Nearly 100 years ago, the world governments suffered the worst economic collapse known to man.  This situation was further compounded by a series of global ecological disasters.  In a desperate move, governments turned to corporations for financial help, thus allowing the largest corporations to gain footholds as governing bodies.  With the advent and harnessing of hyperspace technology, mankind left for the stars with reckless abandon, and the New Golden Age was upon us.

In 2112, the governing corporations are policed by the Intergalactic Peace Corps (IPC).  These are the galactic adventures of Space Marshal, Captain John Nadir.

NZ #1

Captain John Nadir is recalled to Earth for a secret mission briefing. Little does he know that his very life depends on the outcome.

NZ #2

Undertaking a secret mission, John Nadir prepares for his departure from Earth to MOON CITY. Nadir gets more than he bargains for when a simple stop for a layover drink with a spunky Tech Specialist turns into an all-out brawl.

NZ #3

Rogue Star Fighters attack MOON CITY, and Captain John Nadir uses his skills in an attempt to remedy a dire situation.

ALIENS! SPACESHIPS! MOON CITY! OH MY!

Hello, everyone! We'd like to thank our fan-base for the unwavering support shown for the first three issues of NADIR'S ZENITH. Your continued interest and enthusiasm for our comic book is why we've started this Kickstarter project. Everyone loves our story and the only complaint has been, "When will the next issue be out? Hurry it up!" We're an independent comic book producer. That means we produce only as fast as funds are available. Lean months mean longer gaps between issues. We want to remedy the time-lag and with your help, we'll do just that.  We have streamlined the production/printing process during the first three issues and have the procedures down to a science.  We've even been picked up by Comixology.

Our initial goal is to produce NZ #4 with this project.

Imagine if you will that 70 years from now, humankind established a colony on the Moon mining for Helium-3.  Welcome to MOON CITY.  Now imagine that Las Vegas, Disney World, Blade Runner, and Thunderdome had a baby...on the Moon.  Thus, THE INFERNO is born!  Unique galactic enigma and informational nexus point of MOON CITY. Where black markets and deathly entertainment are intertwined with tourist attractions and fantastical make-believe.  Decadent playground for the elite rich and mesmerizing wonderland for the commoner.  Where convicts are holovid stars earning reduced sentences or quick deaths in the attempt.  Where anything can be had for the right price, a roll of the dice, or a spin on the wheel...

NZ #4

John Nadir's mission to NEW CALEDONIA is delayed by a rogue attack on MOON CITY.  The investigation of the attack puts Nadir on the trail for information leading to THE INFERNO.  And the price for such information has its costs...including the lives of his friends in THE ARENA!

And if we exceed our initial goal...

NZ #5

Coerced by the temptations of THE INFERNO, Nadir, Davies, Nguyen, and Parker compete in THE ARENA during a televised fight to the death against some of the worst dredges of society.

We'll deal with that when we get to that point.  We've been invited to Dubai in April 2015 and any funds above and beyond our goal could get us there.

Risks and challenges

There's always risks with anything in life....fortunately, ours is very minimal. The artwork for the first issue is done. We just need to pay the creative team, printing, rewards, and shipping. Should any unforeseen issues arise, they will be dealt with swiftly and to our backer's satisfaction. Without your support, this project goes nowhere fast.
