“...a wonderful preview of an artist on the verge of greatness.”
 - Belle Gaskin-Burr, Pop Culture Uncovered

CLICK HERE TO READ THE FIRST FEW PAGES.

HISTORICAL SCIENCE FICTION

The story of a strong-willed Air Force pilot who discovers that her long-dead father may be part of "The Sentries," an alien armada that has been guarding the Earth for millenia. Senturies weaves historical figures and events throughout the narrative as our hero uncovers the truths that have affected the twentieth century and the alien organization that has played a part in shaping these events. 

"I enjoy taking true historical events and connecting them to the fictional narrative. To me, it makes the story more compelling, like it really happened." - Ramon Gil

A MOVIE ON PAPER

It is my sincere belief that we all have a storyteller inside of us. Whether it be through jokes, journals, photography, novels, films or books. Senturies is a movie that's been playing in my head for over ten years now. With your help, I'd like to see it live within the pages of a comic book and share it with you!

PRACTICALLY DONE

Issue one is almost complete. The first few pages can be found in the preview link above. All we need now is funds to cover the rest of the production, layout and printing.

REWARDS

Depending on your pledge amount you can get your own copy of Senturies #1, more books from Ramon Gil and other perks like ads, framed covers, coaching and possibly more! 

 

Risks and challenges

Having produced over ten books and three successfully funded Kickstarters, there is almost nothing that can stop this project from completing short of a medical emergency. However, I have also instituted contingencies in case of such an event.

As mentioned above, the book is 90% done. With just just a few pages outstanding along with print production.
