About the Comic

Read it HERE!

Rainbow Skies Forever is a story about friendship and loss. It's a story about abuse, and more importantly, survival. 

Down in the small town of Costa Noche, there's little to do, and less to talk about. But when a small team of researchers discovers and experiments on an unknown substance, they're suddenly able to tap into a power that has been lost for centuries: magic.

As it worms its way into Ashley Lockheart's family, the darkness sleeping at the heart of the magic threatens to tear apart her life. Ashley, along with her friends, are strong. But as strong as they are, and as bright as their lives look at the beginning, you can never have rainbow skies forever.

Rainbow Skies Forever is a COMPLETE graphic novel at over 140 pages, across five chapters. It's a slice of life/horror comic about growing up, and what that can unfortunately mean sometimes.

Cast

Ashley Lockheart is fierce, fiery, and filled with self-doubt over her identity. She has trouble reconciling her development into womanhood with her personality and passions.

Sebastian Drown is cool, suave, and collected. He's everything Ashley isn't, and everything she's looking for in a boy. His home is vast and empty, and he tries to not show his friends how much it eats at him.

Alex O'Roark is cheerful, upbeat, and enormous. You'd never guess from his carefree facade how much and how violently his parents argue every night.

Dr. Lucian Lockheart is Ashley's father. For thirteen years of her life, he's been supportive and easygoing. However the injection of magic into his otherwise routine life has changed him, for the worse.

Dr. Akihiro is all smiles and eagerness in public. However something sinister and feral lurks behind his grinning teeth.

Why Kickstarter?

I've worked on several kickstarted projects before. I was the editor-in-chief of Seqapunch Quarterly, an indie comics magazine that came out four times a year. That project was successfully kickstarted, and I was able to turn the funds we got from that initial boost into a two-year-long run for the magazine. 

I'd like to make a print edition of this comic which has so far seen moderate success online. For a small amount, I can get fans of the comic a cool book, as well as some neat swag to go with it. Rainbow Skies Forever is a finished product, so there'll be no delays to print and ship the book!

Risks and challenges

Printing anything obviously comes with a variety of challenges to overcome, from incorrect orders, to mishandled shipping, to delays because of incomplete product.

Rest assured that I've got a few printing companies that I've worked with for years, both in comics and on the convention circuit, and I'm confident that I can get the book to your doorstep within a month or so.
