In a retro-future city where only the wealthy can (literally) reach the stars, an astronomer witnesses a shuttle crash and rescues the only survivor. While the survivor, Lucia, recovers, they become friends, and the astronomer realizes that she may be able to leave Earth-- but Lucia is more than she appears, and the astronomer has stumbled into a hidden society.

By two female creators, this comic follows two women characters as they struggle and build a friendship that takes them -- to the moon!

Risks and challenges

Both Rhiannon and Ainsley have experience with producing and printing comics. Rhiannon is a writer, artist and prepress technician, and Ainsley is a designer and production technician with comics experience. We're both professionals who are used to meeting deadlines under pressure. Additionally, this comic is already complete, so all that's left is raising the funds for printing!
