About

Gene Gardens is an extreme futuristic Ruined Earth Graphic Novel.
http://genegardens.kingtractorpress.com

See my youtube trailer @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6VrOCYkC3Q

Time has almost run out on the small blue planet, and the human race has been split into two; the mutants and the clones. Nations regrouped and reformed, the United Americas and Asia Proper being two of the emerging super powers. The wars now centralize on the hoarding and stealing of DNA, the most prized commodity on earth. Countries frequently raid one another just to steal DNA samples and clones for breeding. In Asia Proper cities the bored youth have created neo-traceur gangs, organized from stories of free runners from the 21st Century. Two in particular are big in the capital Alliance, the Le Parkours and Yamakasi. Through their eyes we learn of hidden agendas, sublime plots, and schemes that may end up breaking this already fragile world.

Gene Gardens is a graphic novel about people surviving any way they can in a ruined world they didn’t create. It’s the human experience, cloned. Right now we're at 100 pages but I expect it to grow as we finish the last chapter of this book.

Jorge and I have been working on Gene Gardens since 2007 and we're almost done. It's a done-in-one complete graphic novel.  We need a financial boost to help us finish this book right.

Instead of asking for donations, we are hoping that you will be part of making Gene Gardens a reality. You don't have to do anything except pre-order the book.  By pre-ordering the book and purchasing extras such as buttons, stickers, and posters then we can make sure that the book you get is as great as possible.

I've tried to make sure that all the prices (which do include shipping) are low for the book and all the extras.  If you help us create the book then you get something special at a very excellent deal.

I really appreciate all the support we've gotten so far. I hope you enjoy this opportunity to be a part of such a unique opportunity.
