About

Hey, Friends!

"The Chosen" is a graphic novel for mature readers that includes adventure, conflict, and great fight scenes. 

This graphic novel is a timely story that touches on some of the issues we see in the news in a fresh and exciting way.  It's a "what if" tale that takes the reader into an alternate universe where the unjust are dealt with decisively. 

We completed a 6 page preview story to give readers a taste of what to expect from the graphic novel.  The preview also gives an introduction to a couple of the main characters and reveals some methods "The Chosen" use to fight injustice. 

The goal of our campaign is to raise the funds to complete the graphic novel. This includes printing and promotional costs such as banners, convention fees and advertising.

Thank you for taking the time to check out our campaign. We've worked extremely hard on this project and we appreciate everyone's support!

All The Best, 

The Creative Team



Summary:

Since the mid 19th century the elders of black communities in America passed down tales of a secret organization that was formed for the purpose of avenging the unjust murders of Black people. 

The organization was affectionately called "The Chosen" by those who believed in their existence.  Legend has it that the members of this organization were "chosen" by God like guardian angels to bring balance to this world and provide justice for the Blacks that had been terrorized by acts of racism and violence.

The elders would tell stories of highly skilled Black assassins who possessed extraordinary powers.  Led by a man named Solomon, the organization would exact revenge on those that dared to murder law-abiding Black people.  Over the years, Solomon initiated and trained new generations to carry on the important work of combating organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan, gangs, and corrupt police. 

After many years of fighting a seemingly never-ending battle against evil and corruption, one of the members of the organization breaks a rule that forces Solomon to disband the organization.  The realization that the group's mission has leaned more toward pure vengeance than justice cause Solomon to submit himself to a form of self-exile.  The organization goes silent and no one hears from Solomon for decades. 

Recent events cause one member, Solomon's former student Travis Benson to seek him out.  Travis intends to convince Solomon that the organization is needed now more than ever...that with the help of his elder, he can continue the mission as it was always intended. 

Will Travis redeem the organization or is he destined to repeat the mistakes of his predecessor?

Risks and challenges

We have completed the preview book as an introduction to the concept and characters. The main graphic novel is a work in progress and funding is needed to make sure we can print and promote it once done.
