About

Hello, please have a look, and consider pledging for this campaign.

Planet C'adaei is on the verge of destruction by an unknown force. A team of five desperately flee their planet in an attempt to find a new habitable home. Although they have conflicting feelings about their mission, they have to come together to encounter a planet full of mystery on the other side of the galaxy.

In this introductory chapter we get to know the characters, some of their hidden motivations and the general theme of the series where we question the boundaries of fantasy and reality through the eyes of our characters.

 CHARACTERS

 Olak is a quiet, reserved young boy who has an interest in history and culture. He has a lot of insecurities: most of them is about the mission and the morality of leaving everyone to their fate, for example his father.

 Rirke is the artist who is responsible to keep C'adaei's culture alive in outer space. She is a motherly caregiver but also strong-minded and stubborn, especially when it comes to children. 

 Acrok the engineer is a rogue, slick womanizer-- at least judging from his first appearance. He has a lot of issues he has to deal with, and unfortunately the rest of the team has to deal with it too.

 U'on is the captain and the mad scientist behind the mission. He is as unemotional and rough as a rock. There are a lot of worms under this rock.

 Aome is a silly little girl, and we don't know why she's on this ship. All the other characters have their practical functionality except Aome.

ABOUT THE KICKSTARTER

This comic is finished and most of the money goes into printing and posting.

We wanted this project to reach as big of an audience as we think it deserves. Also we wanted to make the publication an event with fun and unique gifts. This issue is 40 pages including 5 pages of character art inside a beautifully big B5 (176 x 250 mm or 6.9 x 9.8 inches) perfect bound format. The Hungarian print is an even bigger saddle stitched A4 format.

It will be something to gaze at in your collection.

CREATION

The idea came to me ten years ago. Since then it's been building in my mind and getting more layers, getting polished more and more, and now here we are, the first issue has been finished.

From character design it took about a year to finish. We treated it like making a movie carefully creating every frame like a painting so they have depth and meaning. We also created dozens of designs so that they accurately reflect the personality of each character.

What about sequels?

The second issue has been written and drawing concepts has already begun. It is going to be the 'dark chapter' just as Empire Strikes Back is the darker one from the Star Wars movies.

About the authors

Daniel A. Prim

Writer

Writer of Blender, The Day of Robots, Dan is an experienced writer in many different genres. He likes to take you on an emotional roller-coaster ride filled with mystery, misery and comedy. As you might have read already, The Last Arrival is his dream project, one that has been in development for many years. His main inspirations are Neil Gaiman's Sandman and Garth Ennis's Preacher.

Gergely J. Szabó

Artist (drawings and ink)

"Gergely takes my stupid and makes it work." Daniel A. Prim

He's a 2D and etching artist from Budapest. Since 2003 he has taken part in several exhibitions in Paris, Vienna, Transylvania, Hungary. His etching work combines the older sophisticated graphic methods with current visual motives. Visual storytelling has always been a great interest of his. Experimenting with different styles, he gained a deep understanding of the comic arts. He took the indie hit comic Nameless as his main inspiration.

"Without Szabrina The Last Arrival wouldn't just be black and white. It would be lifeless." An Anonymus Commenter

Colourist

Szabrina is a painter and graphic designer who loves to work with ink, watercolour, oil and of course digital pictures. Her favourite things to draw/paint are portraits, character design, illustrations, landscapes. She had exhibitions in Budapest, Istanbul and Berlin. In The Last Arrival she loves to give the characters life with her trademark vibrant colours. Her inspirations are from life itself.

Risks and challenges

This is not our first publication, but this is our first fundraiser campaign. I can see shipping a challenge, I never had to prepare and send so many orders at one time, but I have help. Producing the shirts is something we have not done in the past, but we already made deals with the manufacturers and they are ready for your orders.
And we are all in good health so I don't see us dying anytime soon.
