When the crew of the Darwyn arrives on an asteroid for a routine mission, they soon discover a mysterious secret hidden away in the blackness of space.

An ancient relic, with it's power and worth unknown, entrances the crew with thoughts of fame and fortune.

As time spent with the relic reveals it's true nature, those aboard the Darwyn must fight for survival against not only one another, but themselves.

They are quickly lead down a path into the macabre and complete insanity.

 WELCOME TO DESCENSION!

 

JOHN SIMS has been writing comics for the past several years.  He has submitted entries to various anthology publications including Heavy Metal and Future Shock.  Sci-fi horror has always hold a special place in his heart, and it is a true privileged to be a part of this project.

LEE MILEWSKI is a Kickstarter veteran, having successfully ran seven campaigns in the past, all written and illustrated by him - some of which are the Hunter's Lore series, the noir detective graphic novel 1939, and the horror comic series Tangled Weeds.

NOCTILUCANT is a dark ambient project willed into the world by one J. Mlodik.  His music is a dark cinematic entity exploring themes of ruin, loss, and despair, which makes it a perfect addition to this project.  Learn more about his music via the link below.

NOCTILUCANT MUSIC

 There have been many amazing and original projects to rise from Kickstarter.  It is the very definition of global community, and is the perfect example of "for the people".  We believe our project will live up to those standards,  and provide an experience unlike anything you have seen before.

All funds will go directly into the project.  If we exceed our goals we will place all additonal funds towards the next part reducing the financial requirements to complete the project.

 

Please be advised all rewards are stacked, so the higher you choose, the more rewards you will get. Below are a few of the pledge options available to backers:

 A digital copy of Descension #1, plus your name listed within the credits of the book.

 

 A physical copy of Descension #1, signed by the creators, and a digital track from NOCTILUCANT.

 

 

The complete soundtrack created exclusively by NOCTILUCANT (6 tracks), a digital "making of" copy of Descension #1, and a POSTER of the cover art (11x17").

 

An exclusive PRINT set created by some of the best artists available in the indie comic scene: Walter Ostlie (Shiver Bureau), Jared Stokes (Bitchfist), and Kristopher Harris (CHARL13).

Risks and challenges
