About

This Kickstarter Campaign was created to fund New Ciaro Issue #1.  

STORY

New Ciaro is a 4 issue,  24 page full color mini-series that takes place in an alternate steampunk version of Earth. In this version of Earth, you could not fall in love with the same sex, nor could black and white people love and date one another. The conflict between religion and science had been one of words. At that point a law was passed ordering the destruction of all religious text and works. Feeling oppressed the remaining believers gathered what books they could and went into hiding. For many years humanity prospered. Technologies in every area had underwent a super boom. Many diseases such as cancer and aids had become curable. Addiction had also become a thing of the past. Clean energy alternatives became cheap thus ending our dependency on fossil fuels. Science had also developed technologies that reversed all the enviromental damage caused by humanity and for the first time the atmosphere was as clean and pure as it had been before humans walked on the earth.

Eventually, religion had started to make a comeback. This return was opposed by science which led to the war between science and religion. Unlike the previous war between them this one had become physical. This war is what was known as the Alpine War. This war cost the lives of millions of people. 

With the earth in a state of anarchy, the wealthy and elite took possession of the world's resources. This, in turn, placed them in positions of power. New laws were passed and many human rights were eliminated. One of these rights included same sex relationships. 

Under the rule of the wealthy and elite, much of the world was rebuilt. The United States, Canada, South America, Greenland, Alaska and Mexico were merged and renamed New Ciaro. The other half of the world was merged together and renamed New Epsilon. 

The middle class was abolished leaving behind the wealthy and lower class.

This is the story of NEW CIARO!

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk to NEW CIARO is not reaching its funding goal. We've assembled a dedicated team of comic creators who can deliver this project.

The majority of funds will go to the professionals for their work on this project. The remaining amounts will be used to print the copies needed to fulfill the Rewards for prints and physical book copies.

With such a lack of diversity in the comics profession today in content, our core principles are to tell you an entertaining story while keeping the material edgy. This book and creative team will do those very things!

We welcome you to our project and thank you for joining us on the voyage into this new and exciting world!
