The team that created EARTH A.M. #1 now brings you the 120-page, full color graphic novel, where the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance of four brutal and treacherous factions. Think Halo meets Risk.

Co-creators Sam Rayburn and Josh Barbeau (Tyrants) introduce a dystopian, sci-fi future that features art by Alan Gallo (Aegisteel), colors by Paul Little (Morning Glories), and letters by Ed Dukeshire (Hulk, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers). 

EARTH AFTER MUTATION: THE STORY

Over 200 years ago, humanity split into four factions, and the resulting war has yet to end.

The Humans fight to survive without the advantage of alterations. Skrytes, winged and genetically enhanced, gaze down from their floating cities. Cyborgs bay for blood from across the Atlantic Ocean. Underaneans, who live below the ground and breathe underwater, engage in rabid guerilla warfare against all.

After the destruction of a major city, the Humans must negotiate a desperate alliance or else risk annihilation by the other three factions.

Our story puts you with faction leaders and frontline characters alike as they endure an all-out struggle for survival. Their choices will change the course of the war.

Some will not see the end.

REVIEWS

 "With quality writing, effective visual storytelling, and first-rate lettering, this book has enormous potential—and I’ll be paying attention." -ComicsNow Review

  "Visually, it’s astounding… Beautiful." -aCONversation Podcast

 "Earth A.M. opens up a new world that I want to be part of. Beautiful to look at, coupled with a great story that you can see opening up to even more amazing tales. This is a comic that will have you tweeting for the next." -Bart Baker (Honeymoon with Harry, What Remains)

 “A sci-fi action packed thriller. This story is compelling, raw, and left me wanting more. The art style helps set the stage for this gritty story of survival of the fittest, and I can’t wait to see who does [survive].” -Star Clipper, Local Comic Book Shop

REWARDS

STRETCH GOALS

We're committed to bringing you the highest-quality graphic novel possible. That's why all of our stretch goals are designed to enhance your experience, from the moment you hold the book to the moment you finish reading.

PRINTING

We'll print every page in glorious full-color! In order to provide both softcover and hardcover options for our backers, our printer will use split-binding to reduce the overall printing costs.

Our hope is to hit our series of stretch goals in order to print a graphic novel that you would be proud to display on your bookshelf!

Risks and challenges

The art of the graphic novel is in-progress, so the main challenge will be to complete the art and compile it for printing. However, the creative team and publishing team have years of comics experience under their belts and so there are no concerns that the book will be completed within the promised time frame.

The only other challenge for any project like this would be the delivery of the rewards to our backers. Some of the rewards will require shipment around the world for signatures from the creative team. If these signed items were to be damaged or lost, it could delay the delivery of some rewards. With that said, the team will ensure that these rewards are well-protected to mitigate this risk.

We feel that the reward value greatly outweighs these challenges, and we look forward to getting the completed book in your hands!
