Alien ships enter earth's solar system, members of the fleet gather together with the President (R # 5 or 6) on his/her Presidential Space Yacht to celebrate and discuss the plan of a peaceful migration into the human population on earth.  A bomb cuts through the ship killing the President and all Members of the fleet's Congress.  Those who survived the blast run in fear. Many escape to their ships and break away from the fleet making a dash for earth.

The fleet's Military Leader, Commander (R # 6) immediately assumes command. His first order is to the ships racing toward earth: "Return to the fleet or be destroyed." Captain (R # 5 or 6) ignores the order and continues toward earth at full speed. A small elite force covertly slips aboard the ship, subdues the craft's crew and returns the ship to its place within the fleet. The captain is to be locked away until order has been restored.  The captain escapes while being transported to the brig.

  • The Commander informs the fleet that he has decided to invade earth rather than follow the previous leader's plan to blend into the earth’s population. He states, "The third planet from the sun will soon have a VACANCY SIGN hanging from it's northern pole. We're moving in.

The escaped Captain and many others do not support the Commander's decision and secretly vow to stop him. 

The fleet's Security Chief, (R # 5) quickly recovers from injuries sustained from the assassin's bomb. She is convinced the military was involved in the President's assassinations. 

Meanwhile the security personnel decode the transmissions emitting from the satellites located around the earth.  The Commander is notified that the broadcasts contain information vital to the survival to the fleet and its military force.

Grudgingly the Commander halts the invasion to review the video broadcast:  Security Chief describes the televised transmissions: "Battleship," "Battle: Los Angeles," "The Avengers," "Independence Day" and more as news reports of previous attacks on earth by forces far greater then their fleet. She points out that in each case the attackers were annihilated.

The invaders, are a unique species of humanoids. They resemble the people of earth, but the resemblance is only skin deep. They are able to use a higher percent of their brain thus have certain acquired abilities. However, even with the added brain power they lack the concept of fiction or imagination: fantasy, fictional beings and stories are beyond their grasp. If it is written it is true, if it is seen it is real. They live by one motto "All work and no play."  

The Military Commander assumes the broadcasts are of actual events that have taken place on earth.

Security Chief: "It appears other alien forces have invaded this planet." 

Commander:   "Yes, I can see that Chief."

Security Chief: "According to these televised broadcasts within the past ten years there have been approximately 752 alien attacks on earth . I must point out that each invading force was annihilated.

Distraught, the Commander orders his military force to stand-down, stating he must study the broadcasts before the fleet takes action. 

24 hours later the Commander meets with the Security Chief behind closed doors.  He orders her to secretly lead a team of her female security staff and a squad of his elite fighters to penetrate earth's defenses, blend into the earth's population and learn how to defeat the earthlings. 

Now it gets interesting... 

The story continues to an end in the graphic novel

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is putting this out there on KICK STARTER and not reaching the goal amount.
I am presently working on this Graphic Novel daily, creating each panel by my own hand. I cannot think of anything to stop me from completing the work by December 2015 except for lack of funding. The story is written, the characters have been created, work is in progress. I have a few young artist ready to assist with special effects, text and captions if the project is funded.
