About

Chapter I (1998)
Chapter I (1998)

Yscariot: Sphere of Light is the first of six chapters based on a Superhero/SciFi action saga. It started out as a story that I wrote 20 years ago on notebook paper in response to learning about the life of my Japanese pen-pal and some hard times faced as a teenager. Some years ago, while teaching in Korea, I started writing my first novel based on the story, which was later released in 2018. Although I feel as though the novel gets far into the details of the story, I figured that it would be more successful if the story was visual.

That is why I am here today. Now that I have found an illustrator to help me create the story, we will need the funds to make it happen. Of course, this is my dream, but sometimes dreams are hard to make come true, so here we are!

  • 50% of the funds will go to the illustrator into the creation of this comic's current and/or next issue (Verse #3).
  • The other 50% will be used to raise awareness of the story and to get us all out there. It may go into other operations such as the creation of a web-toon adaptation, if possible.

With YOUR help, we can create a comic that is interesting and well-drawn out. The story itself has been polished into a long epic in my head, and I have plans to expand, but the next step is to get it on paper. Who knows? It could be the next big action story in the world! At least, it is in mine :)

We are giving away items to those who help! By doing so, you are helping a small team of aspired artists, writers and illustrators, to become something bigger and better. It's a token of our gratitude!

Risks and challenges

As any creative, I am faced with the challenge of time and money. Time, because this story is over 20 years ago, and a lot of other stories are starting to implement the same ideas as mine. I want to tell my story as soon as possible! I'm just too anxious! Also, I want to release this comic book on the most special time of the year for me: My birthday (November 20th)!

Secondly, the money. To tell my story in the most affordable way possible, the funds are needed to help the illustrators spend the necessary time to create the product. The illustrations will be in Black and White but this will help kick the story off and propel us into the next chapter.
