 Welcome to the World of The Immortal Era. I really appreciate your support. This is the realization of a lifelong dream.  I  have always wanted to publish my own work, and I hope that eventually I  will be able to publish even more of my fellow indie authors at Finish  Line Comics.  The story of Immortal Era is one that has been bouncing around  in my head for the last 25 years. I'm very excited to have the opportunity to share it with you.

Immortal Era tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world, 200 years in the future, where there have been no recorded deaths since the millennium.  Because of overpopulation and dwindling resources, the population is divided into two living areas: the Megalopolis city where only a chosen few outfitted with special chips are permitted to live. Those not lucky enough to have chips are forced to live in the brutal underground where there are terrors lurking around every corner. A group of underground dwellers, led by a man known only as Father, is on a mission to find answers and hopefully find a way restore death to the world.

I am the author and creator of Immortal Era. This is my first time publishing a comic. However, I have been writing stories since was old enough to hold a pencil. I have published short stories and poems in various magazines through the years, the first of which was a national poetry magazine when I was in 5th grade. I studied creative writing at Cal State San Bernardino, and now teach writing and other subjects in an elementary school in Southern California. The notes for Immortal Era go back 25 years. This is a huge story that I can’t wait to share it with the world.

My name is Cezar, and I am the artist of Immortal Era. I am a 25 year old Brazilian artist.  I have been a comic book artist for the last three years. I have always loved to read and draw comics and manga. The first comic I ever read, as a child, was Spider-Man. I fell in love with the art of John Romita Jr. After this, I started reading as many comics as possible. I have always loved drawing, and 3 years ago I started drawing comic books. Last year I received the invitation to work with Edward on this project. I learned to love the world of Immortal Era and  its characters. I really hope you enjoy this book. We gave our best, and hope that you enjoy this world as much as we do.

Viviana Spinelli, the colorist for Immortal Era, is an Italian artist who studied at Nemo Academy in Florence. There she received a degree in animation. She has worked as a colorist assistant for Eren Angiolini (Warhammer 40k, Dr. Who), and also for the indie project "Scorpio," by John Robinson IV.


Manny Hernandez, the letterer for Immortal Era, has a degree in graphic design. He is also a graduate of The Kubert School in Dover, New Jersey. He has worked on various projects including Youth and Act 1, for the band The Dear Hunter by Alex Dandino and Evan Peter.


Page 1 is now gone.  Therefore, I have added two new perks. One gets you page two along with some of the other perks. The second one is an all in package that gets you everything from the list and page 3.  These will be the last two pages offered on this Kickstarter so act fast!

I hope to be able to tell this story to its conclusion.  However, the cost of producing a comic is very expensive and Kickstarter will help significantly offset these costs.  I want to be entirely transparent about where the money is going.  The cost to print the book was $1,600, the cost to produce shirts, hats, and magnets was 1,100. The materials for safe shipping were 300.  Rest assured that all books will be shipped in protective bags and boards.  All books will be shipped in Gemini shippers, and posters and original art pages will be sent in protective top loaders.  I appreciate your support and hope you enjoy the story and are ready for the Immortal Era. Now enjoy a sneak peek at the first three pages of the book. 

This is the prologue from the book.  It shows the aftermath of the discovery of the fact that humans can no longer die. I based the reporter Stephen George on the loudmouth reporters from the 80s I loved watching like Wally George and Morton Downey Jr. Enjoy!

Thanks so much for your interest.  The book is ready to go and I can't wait to share it with you!

Risks and challenges

The books, and a majority of the merchandise is printed and ready to ship. Aside from the hoodies and alternate cover book everything is in hand and ready to go. The hoodies will be printed to order, and will be available shortly after the conclusion of this campaign. The alternate cover books are currently enjoying their trip around the world and are now en route to Brazil where Cezar will sign them and send them back to me so that I can fulfill your orders.
