R:ILPERSONA is a sci-fi fantasy action comic book series that is published in weekly episode installments every Wednesday on ilpersona.com, now in its 4th year of serialization! Click here to check it out!

Following on the heels of last year’s successful Kickstarter release of R:ILPERSONA Volume 1: The Etheric Mastery Edition, we’re following up with the sequel trade paperback graphic novel, R:ILPERSONA Volume 2: High Places & Principalities, collecting for the first time ever the entire “High Places & Principalities” story arc that runs through R:ILPERSONA Chapters 4 through 8! Along with these five chapters, the book also includes the side story comic, “The Guardian”


R:ILPERSONA takes place on a post-apocalyptic Earth 793 years after the world as we know it was destroyed in an event known as “The Apex Cataclysm”. Since that time, the world has become a place where technology and a black magic force known as "The Ether" have combined, and the planet is in a state of all-out war between two opposing factions:

The Holy Starlight Supremacy of the Northern Continent, Setentrional...

...and The People’s United Republic of Sol of the Southern Continent, Meridional. 

If this is your first time learning about the series, please check out our previous campaign here to get an idea of what to expect (the first volume will also be made available again as a part of this campaign!). Going forward, there will be mild spoilers!

In our last volume, the series’ protagonist Rade, a black magic wielding teenage assassin for The Holy Starlight Supremacy, woke up in the middle of a mission with his memories erased:

Having assassinated Lyla Prestis, the powerful General Elite of The Republic of Sol, Rade found himself lost within a military medical facility on The Isle of Azazel until he encountered his partner (in the working sense, obviously), Strykes:

Together, the duo battled a series of deadly enemies until they managed to rendezvous with their team of Etheric black magic powered soldiers, The Diavolo Unit, and escaped the island with their mission successfully completed. 

With the memories of his life from before he woke up now gone, and with Strykes urging him to keep his amnesia a secret, we pick up in Volume 2 with Rade having to adjust to a world that he doesn’t know, as his journey takes him into the homeland of his faction, The Holy Starlight Supremacy!

However….

Things don’t get any easier for him, as Rade not only has to deal with the fallout from his assassination mission on The Isle of Azazel…

  …but also, he comes face to face with the sins of his bloody past! All of this, plus the Post Cataclysmic World gets fully unveiled in R:ILPERSONA Volume 2: High Places & Principalities!

R:ILPERSONA Volume 2 not only contains R:ILPERSONA Chapters 4-8 and the Side Story Saga: “The Guardian”, but it also comes in your choice of two different covers! You can either get it in the standard edition above, illustrated by our long time collaborator 7AHO, or:

  ...the digitally painted alternate cover, courtesy of Whaleshark Studio! Clocking in at 180 pages, R:ILPERSONA Volume 2 is a can’t miss follow up to our previous trade paperback collection!

See what people have said about the series!

"The world is immense, built by someone with a grand vision, and it gives  plenty of breathing room for epic storytelling in the future"  The Comic Book Yeti 

 "The writing in this book is great, mixing good storytelling with awesome humor; it feels like FLCL and Paranoia Agent with sprinklings of Samurai Champloo. " Fanbase Press Review

"It reminds me of playing an RPG video game" Fanboys Inc Review

Check it out (the music featured in these videos will be in R:ILPERSONA- The 2nd Soundtrack):

Both soundtracks contain 1 hour of music each and are also available in other reward tiers.
