About

 Star Power is the story of Danica Maris, an assistant astronomer on Space Station Sanctuary Six, who has been granted The Star Power!  She has had to discover where the Star Power came from and why it chose her, battled wicked forces determined to extinguish the light of the Star Powered Sentinels, and fought in battles from space dogfights to planetary wars!  All the while she learns what it means to be the last wielder of the Star Power, and what that power means to the rest of the galaxy.

Created by veteran online comics creators Michael "Mookie" Terracciano (Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire) and Garth Graham (Comedity, Finder's Keepers), Star Power is their love letter to action-packed science fiction, thrilling drama, and the ideals of the superhero.

THE CHOIR OF DOCTOR HYMN

In the wake of her latest adventures, Star Power is gaining fame in the Millennium Federation.  As her heroic deeds are broadcast across the Federation, they attract the attention of the renowned choir composer, Doctor Hymn.

The mysterious Doctor Hymn
The mysterious Doctor Hymn

After a moving concert by Doctor Hymn and his Choir at Sanctuary Six, Danica and her friends are invited to the famous musician's mansion for a private engagement!  But what begins as a pleasant evening slowly turns sinister.  Doctor Hymn not only wants to keep the mystery of his Choir from discovery, he also wants something from Star Power, and he will do anything to get what he wants and to keep his secrets safe.

Doctor Hymn's faithful assistant Kerina does whatever it takes to keep his secrets safe.

Risks and challenges

This will be our fifth Kickstarter! Our first four books were not only successfully funded, but also fulfilled to our backers! We have a solid record for producing quality work and delivering it in a timely fashion. There's always the risk of production delays and mistakes that come with any major printing project, but we have a proven track record of making good on our promises! We got this!
