New Comic from Julian Darius

4 likes

We're excited to tell you about a new independent sci-fi comic book on Kickstarter now, from Dr. Julian Darius, who founded Sequart Organization and was a producer of She Makes Comics!

Watch as Mars looks to the sky and sees Earth, imagining her as a four-armed goddess with her own mythology!

Watch Martian science fiction blossom, as they envision four-armed, tall-headed people on all the solar system’s planets, crafting pulpy stories reflecting their own imagination!

Watch as Mars spies Earth through a telescope and lands probes here… before human history even began!

The 23-page color story appears in Martian Comics #5, but it’s totally self-contained and requires no knowledge of the overall series. (Although past issues are available!)

You can get a download for just $3 and know you supported an independent comic! But you can get the issue in print in a limited, signed-and-numbered edition.

Be a part of making it happen on Kickstarter now! Thanks!

New Sci-Fi Comic from She Makes Comics Producer Julian Darius

Thank you for your support of She Makes Comics! It was a real labor of love for all involved, and it only became a reality due to your help!

We're excited to tell you about a new comic book being produced by Dr. Julian Darius, who founded Sequart Organization and was a producer on She Makes Comics.

Martian Comics is a trippy, retro sci-fi comic that harkens back to early Vertigo in its blend of genre fiction and literary intelligence. Julian has already mostly funded the issue and is looking for finishing costs for a 52-page special featuring seven stories by different artists.

Julian is mostly known as a comics scholar. In fact, he recently published Classics on Infinite Earths: The Justice League and DC Crossover Canon through us. In addition to She Makes Comics, he's had a hand in everything Sequart's done over the years. So while Martian Comics isn't a Sequart endeavor, we hope you'll take a chance to check out his Kickstarter as he ventures into making comics!
