About

The story... 

Welcome to the school without walls, literally, and the only way to learn is by experiencing moments in time yourself. Timeless is a school that specializes in using time travel to teach its students, taking them into the past and sometimes the future all for the benefit of learning. Students follow the directives of an instructor who leads them daily... 

Timeless is a private school -- and the only way to get into it is to apply and be selected, get grandfathered in, or through a lottery that's held once a year and offers a full scholarship to attend. 

Hoverboard Forever is a story that follows Qari Jinks, a sixteen year old sophomore, who has been selected through the lottery to join Timeless and become a time traveling student. However, Qari is marred by her mother mysteriously vanishing when she was just a child. Her father, a police officer, wasn't much help. He threw himself into his work in order to cope, never finding out what really happened to his wife and Qari's mother. Consequently, Qari is a loner and a rebel, abrasive at times to say the least. She finds solace in skateboarding, which is her passion and escape. At Timeless, once accepted, each student is allowed to choose one thing, and item or relic, anything from history or the future to be theirs forever but it must be on the approved list. It's their rite of passage and totem, what they call their "Forever Object." Qari chose a hoverboard from the not so far future. 

With a new school, new people, and the potential to find out what really happened to her mother, Qari is ready to unravel a mystery that has haunted her and her family since... FOREVER. 

GNOSIS Entertainment is Creating Comics... 

This is our second title, following our debut with the urban fantasy comic book series, Cornrows. What we would like to do with this title is venture into a little sci fi with maybe a hint of cyberpunk in addition to urban fantasy. One aspect of our stories that we will continue to emphasize is the examination of the human condition -- the experiences, thoughts, emotions, all the things that make us who we are. Storytelling is our goal and we sincerely hope you all enjoy it!

Risks and challenges

Very little. We successfully handled our Cornrows Issue 1 Kickstarter and another team, similar to the CR one, are assembled to do the same for Hoverboard Forever Issue 1. We are looking for an even faster turnaround than last.
