About

About

The Book of Luka is a Post-Apocalyptic graphic novel set in what used to be Seattle, WA. The first book of the graphic novel has been released in as limited edition comic (only 500 printed) to support this project. The creator is scifi/supernatural thriller author, comic book creator, and film writer/producer Brian Dorsey (www.mountaineerwest.com) and (MWP Comics) all artwork is done by the awesome Ethan Claunch (www.egclaunch.com) and lettering for the graphic novel will be done by Ghost Glyph Studios' own Taylor Esposito (www.ghostglyphstudios.com).

Primary artwork is already funded so this can be considered a pre-order!

Our goal of $3000 is to support a kickass cover, the initial print run for backers and to have books available at upcoming conventions, cover basic fees and goodies to the backers, and to support additional marketing. 

We have a stretch goal of $4500 that will help get into more conventions and provide more promotional merchandise.

A second stretch goal of $8500 will allow us to make the initial run hardback!

Now for the good stuff, straight from the pages of The Book of Luka:

In a flash, the world ended...

The Battle of Armageddon has come and gone. But it was not what humankind expected. 

In the end the seraphim, archangels, and high demons were either killed in The Battle of the Seven Generals or simply gave up and left. There was no rapture, no day of jubilee...only destruction.

In the aftermath the 'sessed', humans possessed by lower demons, stalk the charred landscape devouring souls and flesh alike. In addition to the supernatural evil haunting the world, human scavengers and petty warlords fight over the scraps, challenging even demons in their savagery. 

Pg 7

But some hope does exist, however small.

Those given special powers by the archangels stand watch over the ever-shrinking flock of humankind. 

Guardians, with their increased strength and anointed swords (capable of killing all but high demons) are the watchdogs that defend the citadels. 

Far-roaming, stealthy, and possessing deadly speed, Rangers scout the wastelands for intelligence, supplies, and worthy survivors.

These warriors, and the flocks they protect, are led by the Bishops. Chosen for their bravery and leadership in the first days of the Apocalypse, they have the power to exercise lower demons and the will to do what must be done in order for those under their care to survive.

Working outside the confines of the warrior-class are the Relic Holders. Given tokens of immense power by the seraphim just prior to the Apocalypse, they carry the weight and pain of their gifts as they forge their own paths to restore the world for mankind.

The Book of Luka follows the Guardian Luka, a former comic bookstore clerk and fry-guy at Dick's Burgers,  as he and his partner Harold (a Marine) face off against evil in what used to be Seattle. 

Seattle radio personality, The Reverend En Fuego, from KISW 99.9 will be a character in the graphic novel.
