Alastair Sterling was the inventor who sparked the robot revolution, and because of his sudden death he didn't see any of it. That is, until he unexpectedly wakes up in a robot body that matches his old one exactly and finds out that 16 years have passed. Brendan Pinsky, Al's former research partner and secret lover, now runs one of the largest robot manufacturers in the country. And Brendan's dearest project, Sulla - a highly advanced robot with a mind copied from Al's - is now living as a teenage girl.

O Human Star follows the story of these three coming together as an unconventional family in a not-too-distant future.

To publish a 192 page softcover and limited edition hardcover collection of O Human Star Volume One.  

  • $30,000 SPOT GLOSS will be added to the covers
  • ????????? (unlockable at $45,000)

O Human Star is a long-form science fiction comic with a diverse LGBTQ cast. There are a lot of readers out there who want to read sci-fi they can see themselves in (I should know, having met countless such readers at conventions over the past few years), but these kinds of books can be difficult to publish through traditional channels. Crowdfunding is the ideal platform for a book like mine.

Moreover, by Kickstarting O Human Star I’ve be able to oversee all aspects of the book’s production. I’ve chosen to work with a printer following ethics guidelines for its factories and paper sourcing, and I look forward to screen printing my posters at Steady Print Shop Co., right here in Minneapolis!
