What are we raising money for?

This campaign is to raise funds to create the book. Everything from supplies, operation costs to the compensation for the incredible work of the creators. Including the incredibly talented & published artist Joseph Cooper, and the unique lettering stylings of Mr. Micah Myers. As the writer and colorist on the series, I will NOT be taking a percentage as my contribution for bringing this ALL-NEW Sci-Fi series to life!

What is Feast or Famine About?

In a parallel dimension to our own, world renowned inventor and futurist Nicholas Teska has won the energy race of the American Industrial Revolution. His chief rival, Alva Edison, died suddenly in a freak electrocution accident at the World Futurist's Expo of 1881. Allowing Teska to use a tragic opportunity to revolutionize the availability of energy at a major turning point in human history. 

 

 

His inventions help to bring about a massive global shift in our understanding of energy, magnetics, and physics. Teska soon attracts the attention of an up and coming physicist from Germany, Dr. Albalien Stein. Together, they create Tacheon Laboratories, a scientific collective with only 1 goal, to create the world of the future!

One night, Teska is working late on a new project, studying the radio signals from outer space, when he discovers a faint distress signal he believes has originated from a nearby planet. He convinces Dr. Stein to help him build a portal to take the two scientists on a journey that no human has embarked on before! Find out what happens in the full Feast or Famine series, coming to Alterna Comics in 2018!
