AUDyssey is an ambitious and expansive universe, occupied by Augmented, Unique, or Divergent individuals. These are their stories, their odysseys through life, their struggles to forge their place in the universe. AUDyssey provides a bird's eye view of each character's epic saga. Every individual action, no matter how small, causes lasting and impactful changes to the universe as they know it.

Set in a world struggling with emerging AUDs, we follow Aiko and her crew through the underworld of Japan. With their sights set on breaking into the underground hip-hop scene, they must learn to navigate through the unforgiving streets of Tokyo if they hope to gain true independence.

Written by Franky Sampieri, Inks by Wayne Lowden, Colors by Sean Callahan, Letters by Elizabeth Craig with Character Designs by Ryan Nieto and Channel Williams

Nocturne has the heart of an old-school noir detective story with neon blood running through its veins. A group of AUD individuals blowing off a little steam in the streets of London wander into the wrong neighborhood and begin to be picked off by something even monsters are afraid of. 

Written by Armando Clemente II, Inks by Wayne Lowden, Colors by Sean Callahan, Letters by Elizabeth Craig with Character Designs by Ryan Nieto and Channel Williams

So far we have developed more than 13 characters in the AUDyssey universe. Each character's perspective will give insight into the singular AUDyssey story. With Aiko complete and Nocturne approaching the finish line we have begun production of our next two entries in the universe.  

This kickstarter campaign will help us with the printing of these two issues and the continued production of the AUDyssey universe.    

The Book

To kick off the AUDyssey, we're combining both Aiko and Nocturne's first story into one book. Once you have finished one issue, flip over the book and begin another journey. This will be a special first print release and won't be made available again.

Aiko Issue 0 original cover, 29 pages of story content. Cover Art Inks by Wayne Lowden, Colors by Sean Callahan.
Nocturne Issue 0 original cover, 41 pages of story content. Cover Art Inks by Rock Alves, Colors by Sean Callahan

 VARIANT COPIES

Only 250 variant copies available.

Aiko Issue 0 variant cover. Cover Art Inks by Wayne Lowden, Colors by Sean Callahan.
Nocturne Issue 0 variant cover. Cover Art Inks by Wayne Lowden, Colors by Sean Callahan. We'll update this image when the variant is available :)
The two comics are combined together, for 70 pages of story content plus 6 pages of bonus content.

When you get to the end of the first comic, flip it over and start reading from the other side!

 The Stickers

These stickers range in size from 2" wide and 4" tall to 3.5" wide and 4" tall.
These stickers are the real deal! Dishwasher safe and UV resistant, you can put these on your water bottle, your laptop and even your car or bike!

The Buttons

Four 1.75" pinback buttons.
Four 1" pinback buttons.

The Prints

Four Lolis of the Apocalypse, Art Print by Jingle Jude, various sizes
Noc Ink, Inks by Rock Alves, Paint pour canvas by Thunderpaws Art, in collaboration with Franky Sampieri and Elizabeth Craig, various sizes

Original Scripts

The original scripts, signed by the writers.

Special Character Design

We'll make you a character in our next comic. You'll receive a character sheet like this one and a high resolution page from the comic!!

We chose to set a reasonable goal for this project. $4000 is what we need to get a good start. Every penny we make goes straight into the production of the next issues, convention fees, and merchandise. 

Main Goal

$4,000 helps us print this first run of comics!

 Stretch Goals

$6,000 fully pays for printing the first comics! And we get to order a special treat for you!
$10,000 helps pay for the production of another comic!
With $15,000 we get to produce yet another comic and go to cons in 2020!
$20,000 will get us enough to produce a third comic and help with printing costs.

The Bird's Eye Team

Bird's Eye Comics is a Portland based company operating out of Portland, OR and Long Beach, CA. Our team is made up of four creatives with a passion for storytelling. All of the money we make from this campaign will go to the amazingly talented artists we work with. These two issues are only scratching the surface and the adventure has only just begun.

Risks and challenges

A lot of time and preparation has gone into creating the AUDyssey universe. We are no strangers to hard work nor do we shy away from commitment. We have experience working with artists and collaborating with others to achieve our vision. With backgrounds in film, writing, accounting, computer science, marketing, web development and business, we are confident that our combined skills and passions will give us what we need to see this ambitious project through. That being said there are always unforeseen challenges when taking on a project of this magnitude. But no matter what problems may arise we are prepared to adapt, overcome and take them on one step at a time, to see these stories brought to life.
