The story so far...
In the first issue, we follow the story of John as he awakens, bound to a chair in an unknown location. He struggles to remember how he got there while his captors continuously inject him with sedatives and subject him to various tests and experiments. Why? John has no idea. His mind is fragmented and the only way to remember is to journey inward and piece it together.
This Kickstarter will help us with:
* the production cost of issue 1, a 24 page(or more) beautifully colored Comic
* providing our backers with cool rewards
This issue is the beginning of a five issue mini series with the potential to develop into an ongoing series!
What we have so far...
David has scripted 5 intriguing issues of the first story arc. Matt is doing an incredible job penciling, inking and coloring this book! Currently, we have an ashcan of the first 12 pages of issue 1. You can see our non exclusive updates here-
