Hello, Hal Laren here! Creator, artist and writer of Trojan Nova. Thank you for taking a moment to check out my project. I love creating comics. I’ve self-published many of my own books from B.Ex comics 1- 10 to Trojan Alpha as well as creating covers for many independent publishers both in the UK and the United States. Here are some links:-

Previous comics from 2010 include Trojan Cry0 and Trojan Alpha. Trojan Nova is to be an extension to these but not a direct continuation.
To further develop the narrative of the older comics I wanted to create a more suspenseful sci-fi story. My aim in Trojan Nova was to continue and elaborate on an existing experience for sci-fi comics readers. If you enjoy this book we have some great rewards available, from t-shirts to prints, and even a chrome cover.
TN is set in an existing comic universe. The story follows a solar physicist Jaden Axion. His knowledge is only equalled by his determination to do the right thing. He learns that Trojan Command has wrongfully deployed his life's work, the solar capacitor, on his home system’s sun. Jaden must find a way to save his home world and find out why the Command has ordered the destruction of the Edra colony.
With ultimate power on the table, who can be trusted? Jaden realises that his invention could revolutionise the known universe but to others it could be the greatest weapon. The Trojan Core Command plan to take his work and blow his home world’s star into a Nova.
The evil Commander Strafe is determined to take control of this technology and test it on the colonists of the Edra system. Jaden’s wife Emilia, chief engineer of project Nova, is a mechanical genius and is the driving force behind her husband’s work.
This project is something I’ve wanted to share for some time but wanted to have a near-finished product in hand before release.
If I get enough backers I can publish this comic and bring it to comic shops / conventions and reach a larger audience, and create even more great rewards. I hope you find this project as exciting as I do, because I have two more in the pipeline.
