Production

Litha is the best warrior of her tribe. She has dedicated her life to compete against others and to perfect her combat abilities. She leads the air glider troops of the entire island of Loimata, being the youngest to ever make the rank. But success for Litha comes at a cost: solitude. Obsessed with being the best, she distanced herself from​ ​her family and friends throughout her training, and now they are the ones giving her the cold shoulder.

About the project

(Use the arrows or slide to see all the images)

In a world almost flooded, ancient tribes live in small settlements, defending their territory against hostile nomads that sail the oceans looking for islands to conquer.​ ​Litha's tribe is used to defending themselves against these threats, but their real curse, the thing most islanders fear, is the Fateful - a place in the island covered in a thick mist. ​ ​Something terrible happened there, something that can't even be spoken of, it's a taboo. A great power of unknown origin lives within, but whoever dared to discover it's secrets, never came back.

One morning, the alarm is raised throughout the island of Loimata. ​ ​On the horizon lies the biggest nomadic tribe navy anyone has ever seen. Their songs and terrifying masks indicate they don't come in peace. Ten times bigger than their own, it's impossible to defeat such a huge navy.​ ​The island authorities don't want to condemn the islanders to certain death, so they decide to surrender without a fight.​ ​Litha flatly refuses to hoist the white flag and explains there might be an opportunity to defeat the invaders: taking advantage of the dark power of Fateful. Penetrating that place is madness, but the young woman convinces everyone that it's the only way to ensure the survival of the tribe.

Tagata, leader of the island's naval force doesn't agree with Litha's suicidal plan. He thinks that entering the Fateful will only awaken the evil forces that inhabit it, and they will devastate not only the hostile tribe, but everyone else with them.​ ​Willing to stop Litha, he will also enter the Fateful.​ ​To make matters worse, Litha and Tagata share a tragic love story from long ago...​ ​Inside the  Fateful they will not only have to deal with the evil that lives within, but also past traumas, and wounds that never healed.

An action-adventure comic that will pierce your heart like a HARPOON.

FORECAST OF DEVELOPMENT AND CONDITIONS OF THE CAMPAIGN:

GENERAL

We know the kind of effort it takes to do a good job, and both the author and Spaceman Project are prepared. We love this medium and we want to take it to another level where the readers, authors, and the booksellers are the protagonists. It is because of that that we have taken the small details into account and adjusted the fundraising goal for what we’re offering.

This is an all or nothing campaign model. In order for the project to become a reality we need to reach 100% of the goal. The length of the campaign will last 30 days but can be extended by 10 more days if the project reaches 50% of its goal before the end of the month.  As the publisher, Spaceman Project, can make contributions to the campaign to boost or complete the goal at its own discretion. As is customary, an announcement will be made public if this happens.

COSTS INCLUDED IN THE CAMPAIGN

Author / Cost to create

Platform / Creation, management and Crowdfunding collection management.

Publishing / Editorial advisory, quality control, translations, graphic design, pre-production, printing, delivery of rewards to backers and bookstore distribution.

 

DEVELOPMENT PIPELINE

Author / 12 months after the end of the campaign. *

Editing / 3 months of editing after the author’s final delivery.

Printing / 5 to 10 weeks for printing.

Deliveries / it will take between 2 and 6 weeks after the books have been received to be sent to the backers.

*Spaceman Project is not responsible for delays in the creation as this is the author’s commitment to the backers. In the case that the work is not finished, the author is directly responsible for refunding the backers. 

All illustrations presented in this campaign are provisional and are subject to change once the goal has been reached, and work on the project commences. This is only applicable to the cover images for the most part, not to the story, the format of the work, nor the rewards being offered. Obviously, we are presenting a work that is in progress and under development. Creativity has no limits and we are confident that we will not stop improving, and as such, we have made a commitment to quality with our readers.

While the project is being created, the authors are responsible for issuing updates and keeping the backers informed. Once the materials have been delivered to Spaceman, the publisher will be in charge of informing the backers about each of the next steps (Editing/ Production/ Warehouse arrival/ shipment of packages).
