The technology used in the saga is fresh and innovative. We are using spaceships specifically designed for melee space combat, thus the name Bladeships. In our universe genes play a crucial role in all aspects of life, and one's future is pretty much determined by their home planet. One day on a Lightstep planet is like a century on another. The visual style of our comic book is a singular mix of the past and the future, a combination of Art Deco and futurist architecture, with a wholly unique approach to fashion, transport, and even the style and the way of everyday life.
Our immediate future plans cover five episodes. The two of the five episodes are already done, and the entire five-episode story arc will be completed no later than six months after the end of the campaign. As for long term plans, we wish to further extend the story and make LsC an ongoing periodic series.
The first LsC novel, serving as a prequel to the comic book, is already complete. It will be made widely available upon the official release of the comic book, with the backers getting a chance to read it before anyone else. We have also partnered with Eipix Entertainment in order to develop a video game based on the comic book. For the immediate future we wish to expand the LsC universe with new original stories, running parallel and occasionally intertwining with the LsC storyline, mainly in the form of comic books, but also other media such as video games, books, animated film, board games, toys, action figures, etc.
We agree, it’s a long time, but creating a universe is a time consuming task. With our current resources and output, it takes us two months to complete an episode. So, three episodes equals two months, plus two months, plus two months, adding up to a six month total. Besides, such a long delivery period also provides us with a chance to deliver a pleasant early surprise. Fingers crossed!
That's the plan. The comic book will be available in a digital format, and we are already working on distribution plans for the physical copies as well. However, keep in mind that certain items (artwork, variant covers, pendants, etc.) are Kickstarter Exclusive items, specifically designed for backer rewards and only available for the duration of the campaign.
We are based in Serbia (Eastern Europe - haven't you seen our video?!), and shipping expenses tend to be very high, so we are unable to offer free shipping. We did our best to keep the shipping costs to a minimum, and, of course, all materials in digital form are sent free of charge anywhere in the world.
