Skies of Fire is a limited comic series by Vincenzo Ferriero and Ray Chou, with art by Pablo Peppino and Bryan Valenza. Skies was launched in 2014 and has remained 100% independent through crowdfunding and the support of our fans. For the first time ever we're publishing two issues in one year! 

This campaign's goal is to raise funds to print the sixth issue of Skies of Fire. Any additional funds will be funneled back directly into the production of future editions of the series.

Skies of Fire takes place in the Aquilan Empire, a kingdom where airship travel has become the dominant means of transportation, commerce, and war. In the center of the Empire lies a monstrous, never-ending storm called The Expanse.

In Issue One, the raider Delmonte orchestrates a surprise attack on the key trade outpost, Port Prince. His actions prompt Royal Guard Captain Helen Pierce to volunteer for an expedition to bring him to justice.

In Issue Two, Captain Pierce enlists the help of the elusive William.

Issue Three follows the pair as they recruit members for their mission in the bordertown of Copperhead.

In Issue Four, the crew of the Zephyr comes together despite their differences.

Issue Five follows the Zephyr as they embark into the Expanse.

While Issue Six takes place in the heart of the storm....

The creative minds behind Skies of Fire and Mythopoeia, Vincenzo Ferriero  and Ray Chou have been collaborating on creative projects since 2008 despite living 5,437 miles apart. 

Pablo Peppino is a an illustrator from Argentina with a focus on sequential art.

Bryan Valenza is a prolific artist based in Jakarta, Indonesia. He currently occupies his time coloring various projects from top publishers in the industry.


 Alexandur Bucur is an architect and illustrator with an interest in history and military hardware of all kinds. When not at his drawing table he can be found standing at attention in a swanky uniform for the benefit of the Military Traditions branch of the Romanian Army.

Catalin Lartist was born in the plains of Wallachia, a descendant of Vlad the Impaler, and learned the art of pencil and ink from an old master and book keeper.In his years of apprenticeship in the Chronicles Keep he learned the wisdom of the dead and brought back the old mastery of hypnotic drawing.He uses his knowledge to steal people's souls and seal them on paper.

The majority of funds from this Kickstarter will go into covering the cost of printing issue #6 and fulfilling orders from this Kickstarter. Any remaining money will be put back into further production of Skies of Fire.

Skies of Fire Book I is 8x11" clothbound hardcover with 120 pages including sequentials, codex documents, and variant covers.. The book features a new wraparound cover by Pablo de Bonis featuring the city of Monterey.

Like our previous single issues, Skies of Fire #6  will be an 8x11 saddle-stitched floppy comic with 38 pages of interiors.

 This issue's variant will be a homage to Herge's Tin-Tin featuring Alex and Baron!

Stay tune as we announce our Variant artist mid campaign!

Risks and challenges

This is our 10th Kickstarter campaign. The biggest risk is in timely fulfillment. We will do our best to fulfill all orders within two months of the campaign's close. Otherwise, the production of the book is finished and it's ready to go. We're confident that the risk to you as a backer is minimal. We're committed to 100% satisfaction when it comes to our campaigns. Just ask our previous backers!
