Kasai is the second solo series of the SFC Comics line. SFC is world of super powered sports entertainment. These solo series are a chance to get to know the characters outside of the ring.

 The Story

Kasai returning home to Kyoto to find her estranged demi-God father has broken his promise to his sister, Mizuhame, the goddess of water, never to fight again. Though Kasai begs him to stop, he refuses and Mizuhame exacts her revenge by kidnapping him. Now, Kasai must face her own fears to rescue a father who once abandoned her.

 The Cast 

 Kasai is a demi god who burned her mom at birth. She spent many years in an orphanage until her father Kagu wanted to train her. She stayed with her father for a few years then left to be on her own. She stumbled into the world of Super powered wrestling in her late teens. After a few years she was a big hit in Japan. Samson, CEO of SFC brought her to America to be a big star

Kagu-tsuchi aka Kagu is god of Fire who burned his mother at birth. He is the estranged father of Kasai. He is a care-free spirit that likes to have fun.

Mizuhame is water goddess with a stern belief of a seperation of mortals and deities. She is deeply bothered by the interaction of beings

 We can try to use words to try to convince but let's allow the comic to speak in this preview

 

 

 

WHY THIS STORY?

When Marcel Dupree, editor and co-founder of Evoluzione Publishing and SFC Comics, approached me about writing Kasai, I was absolutely thrilled. I love mythology and action and though I’m not a pro-wrestling fan per se, I have a deep respect for their athletic skills. (Whoever tells you pro-wrestling isn’t real doesn’t know what they are talking about. It’s scripted, but every hit is real as are the injuries.) We talked about the world of the Super Fighting Championship and the mythos behind Kasai. It was clear that we had the makings of a complex character on our hands and I ran with it. But Kasai isn’t just about action and the ring, at its heart it is a father-daughter story. One that is fraught with resentment, trust issues, and love.

Please join us as we explore this world and journey with our characters into the unknown. I think you’ll like it and the lizards. Especially, the lizards.

Risks and challenges

I'm happy to report that to date all previous SFC Comics Kickstarter rewards have been delivered with the exception of SFC: Tag Team which we have yet to receive from the printer.

As with all project like this, the main risks we face are the same obstacles every print comic deals with - unpredictable printer schedules and shipping logistics. However, if there are any delays or hiccups we will let you know.
