Myth of Sound

by Daniel Ramirez

An ongoing story revolving around a cast of characters from around the world, whose lives are irreversibly changed by phenomena in sound. Lei Long is the protagonist for the first two issues and the other characters will be introduced in two issue intervals until they begin to cross paths. Characters from China, Puerto Rico, U.S.A., and France will debut in the first volume of the series, a 20-Issue story arc.

Click here to read the first issue, Myth of Sound: Overture, is completed and available online for FREE! The entire issue was colored using Prismacolor Markers!

The funds I hope to raise with this Kickstarter campaign will be appropriated for printing a first run of copies for Issue 1, and for the creation and printing of Issue 2. The creation of Issue 2 will require an arsenal of costly art supplies which include, but are not limited to: Adobe Photoshop Software, Premium Illustration Markers, Pencils & Paper, and most importantly the artist's time.

I wrote, penciled and illustrated the first issue solo, which I intend to do for the second issue, also having to do with the character Lei Long. Subsequent issues will feature other pencilers and colorists, as they will also have different protagonists, but the story remains written entirely by myself.

Character Dossiers:

The many protagonists and antagonists in the world of Myth of Sound are colorful and eclectic in personality.

Risks and challenges

The completion of a single issue of a comic book takes plenty of time and effort, especially for a one-man crew. The main challenge is covering the cost for materials and printing. A main risk is missing my self-imposed deadline for the rewards, but it is not a matter of if I complete this graphic novel, it's a matter of when. This work is my passion and I will continue to work on it until I breathe no more.

That being said, the story is written and Issue One is done. The video above features me working on Issue Two so you know that it is under way.
