Ascend: Hell Climber graphic novel

CA$ 15,730

252

Ascend: Hell Climber is the first graphic novel in a trilogy by Thomas Pringle, concept artist in the film and game industry (A Quiet Place, Star Trek Discovery, Transformers, Pet Sematary, Neuromancer, Mass Effect, Bioshock). With story editing by Steve Spencer Baker (Slabscape series, Tomato creative collective) and trailer score by Adam Edwards.

The survivors of a downed patrol ship have only one hope of escape: Steal a shuttle from the highest level of an ancient defense tower. But the towers are now home to the mutants and outcasts who were left to rot in the toxic wasteland.

The book runs at 12x8” (30.5x20.3cm) 92 pages in hardcover, signed and numbered by the artist and is inspired by sci-fi films such as Outland and Alien as well as the Heavy Metal magazine stories of the 1970's and '80s.

Also included in the book are 12 pages of full colour concept illustrations showing the world of Ascend in great detail.

The first volume is ready to print and I’m well underway with the second book in the series. I've produced a few test books and the quality is great.

Signed and numbered LIMITED (limited to 10) Kickstarter exclusive print 11x7" (28x18cm).

Signed and numbered LIMITED (limited to 10) Kickstarter exclusive glossy poster 36x24" (91.5x61cm).

Risks and challenges

The book is finished!

I finalized the printing quote and done a few test books. The quality is great and I am very satisfied with how its turned out.

The last step is to raise the minimum amount needed to realize the printing. So if this sounds like a project you'd like to support, please do so and in the process receive an awesome book!

Thank you.
