High Fi Sci-Fi! The story of indentured servants forced to play an internationally televised blood sport to escape Debt and DEATH!

About this project

The Story.

BreakBall is a Science Fiction action comic written and illustrated by Gavin Weir.    

On a parallel world named Asylan, government and civilization itself have almost completely collapsed due to problems caused by overpopulation and debt. With the economy sinking, society was on the verge of revolt on a global scale. 

Slowly the friction between cultures and their governments, as well as governments and one another began to grow. 

 Suddenly, mysterious catastrophic events erupted simultaneously across the planet destroying the ten largest cities on Asylan. With the ten largest sources of economic growth laid to waste, a world summit was held and the governments of Asylan merged into a sovereign ruling body. 

The first act of the reformed ruling body was to pass several new laws; Anyone in debt would be shipped into space to a continent sized space colony. The inhabitants of the Lusiphur colony are entered into a random lottery the winners of which are chosen to be BreakBall players. To refuel the economy and entertain the wealthy, gambling on BreakBall is made legal and is regulated by the government. 

BreakBall players enter sixteen-man battles to fight for both their lives and to remove years of debt from their sentence of indentured servitude. People from all walks of life and cultures are chosen to play this enthralling death sport. As time goes by, Asylan stabilizes and BreakBall becomes the number one sport on the planet and the destroyed cities are used as the arenas to host the games. 

 This story follows the team The Onitsuka Oni as they play through a season fighting for survival, freedom, and learning exactly how intrinsic BreakBall is to every part of their society.

 About me:

I graduated from The Art Institute of Ft Lauderdale in 2008 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Media Arts & Animation. I love comics, books, and cinematography. It has been my dream to create my own comic for many years, and now Kickstarter has allowed me the opportunity to do so.

Risks and challenges

I am confident I will complete this task when the project is funded..

The 30-pages of Issue One are already completed. I will tackle the challenge of set backs in either printing or shipping by keeping you up to date with regular updates on Kickstarter and Facebook. Keeping you in the loop will result in your knowing which items I’ve received and which are in transit. Additionally, you will be kept up to date on the book's progress leading up to full completion and shipment. There are multiple ways by which I can be contacted that are listed on my Kickstarter profile page, any and all questions will receive a prompt and courteous reply. Your donation goes towards the creation of all aforementioned merchandise and the completion of the comic.

Thank you for your time and contribution.
