About

Kai hails from an advanced utopian society. His family signs on with a scientific mission to study a primitive world of magic. When an unforeseen accident devastates their vessel, Kai is separated from the rest of the crew. All aboard escape in life pods…all except Kai.

With the protection of a loading dock robot Kai survives the ship’s impact to the surface. He's rescued by an apprentice magi and her quirky mentor. Together they’re Kai’s only hope of staying alive long enough for his parent’s return.

TECHNICALLY MAGI (pronounced mey-jahy) is an ongoing comic book series that is a mixture of thrills, humor, intrigue, monsters, and mayhem all experienced from the view point of a 12 year old, way-in-over-his-head, technogeek. 1 part Robinson Crusoe, 1 part sci-fi, and a whole buttload of your favorite d20 role playing game (dragons, dungeons, barbarians, casters, clerics, liches, with the occasional mech).

This is a true Kickstarter campaign with a goal to get over a publishing hump of 4 issues. That would effectively kick start us so that we could keep the story coming uninterrupted. We're talkin' a full glorious-color ongoing series. We have a gobsmackingly amazing story to share. And we need your participation to make it happen!

Besides a Kick@$$ Story, what do you get outta this!?!

The pride of knowing that you made it all possible. Oh! That and some stellar booty! We've rewards for the gamers and tech'ers. These are exclusive Kickstarter rewards that will not be available after the campaign.

If you're a collector then I'd like to point out the first issue of "The Walking Dead" only put out roughly 7000 issues. That made it rare & hard to find. Kickstarter will be your only source for these first run beauties!!!

Now here's the Skinny on the Stretch Goals!

In order to keep the ichor that is our story flowing to you uninterrupted we gotta make it over a publishing hump of 4 issues. That's why we've come up with some bonus items for each goal we crush under our massive march towards victory!

All of this leads to our ultimate Epic Goal where WE ALL SHARE in the bounty with a 100 PAGE TRADE PAPERBACK Collection of our first 4 issues, including our thanks-to-you pages, and your character contributions.

FEATURED REWARDS!

Where does the Money Go?

Excellent question! Here's a breakdown chart of how our expenses are covered for the campaign. After all expenses from the actually campaign are fulfilled the remainder goes towards paying our amazing creative team.

You may notice that there's no portion of the pie for the writer. As the creator of the project I'm sitting out any profits from the launch. Any amount over the stretch goals will be put right back into growing the series. I'm just grateful enough to be able to share this awesome story!

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

All international shipments will be delivered by FedEx and include tracking. Please select your country, and add the corresponding shipping amount to your pledge. 

International shipping must be added manually. If you have already pledged yet forgot shipping, you can edit your pledge amount through your account.

Risks and challenges

Like any creative endeavor there will be the unforeseen, the unexpected, that plot twist you didn't see coming. While this is my first foray in graphic novels, I have experienced this in television production shoots & animation. As Gunny Sgt said, "We improvise. We adapt. We overcome."

"We" also surround ourselves with experienced people from the field. Graphic novel editor Joan Hilty has managed comics for years within DC's Vertigo line. Our TMagi creative team of Carlos E. Gómez and Teo Gonzalez have done amazing work for the major BIG 3. And, when our campaign is successful we'll be able to reveal the fantastic backing from a well respected publisher.

"We" got your back.
