What would you do if saving the universe meant losing your soul?
A deadly choice between saving everyone you ever loved and your own total annihilation.
This is the decision Raiden Nakamura must make as he faces off against the might of the Demon Imperial Alliance - a horde of ancient alien invaders hell-bent on conquering our solar system and seizing a powerful weapon in the form of the giant super robot: Mayhem.
Little did Raiden know, when he first strapped into Mayhem’s pilot seat, he would have to not only battle the alien menace, but also Mayhem itself, in a struggle for control over his mind and soul.
But Raiden is not alone. His friends Ulysses Breton, Captain Randolph Carter, Dr Mengyu Wen, Chief Engineer Suelita Solar and the rest of the ISTA Theseus must help him retain some last semblance of the man he once was.

Risks and challenges
We're a dab hand at Kickstarter now, and since we started we've learned a lot, including having good control over our printing sources, learning how to make tweaks to improve quality, allowing time for any delays in printing, and having backups in case a printer is unable to fulfill on time.
We'll be notifying you at all stages of the Kickstarter how progress is coming along, including an insight into the writing process and showing work in progress pics of the artwork.
Issue One is already fully produced and ready to go. We're confident we can deliver on time and to the high quality our backers demand!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
