| TRANSDIMENSIONAL is a 4-issue sci-fi/horror miniseries, which will be published as a full graphic novel by TPub Comics, who have given the world other dark delights such as THEATRICS, TORTURED LIFE and TURNCOAT.
The story focuses on Deacon Price, an emotionally broken underwater archaeologist who charters an expedition, under false pretences, to a downed Soviet submarine that's been missing for decades. What he and his crew find there will not only put their lives at risk, but also the lives of everyone they've ever known! The story gets progressively darker, more intense and horrifying as it goes along, leading to a gory and harrowing conclusion.
The writer is MICHAEL GORDON, who hails from Northern Ireland. He had a few short stories published in anthologies in 2016 (OUT OF THE BLUE: A COLLECTION OF CAMPFIRE TALES from Stache Comics; CHRONICLES OF TERROR and TALES FROM ORBIT from WP Comics), and this is his first full miniseries.
The art team on the project is HENRIQUE PEREIRA, a Brazilian artist who is part of the awesome Inkstand Studios, on pencils and inks. The colours are provided by JAN WIJNGAARD, who also worked on both THEATRICS and TORTURED LIFE for TPub.
All 20 pages of TRANSDIMENSIONAL #1 are fully pencilled and inked, and 5 of those pages are coloured as well. It is being brought to Kickstarter in order to fund the remaining colouring of the book (15 pages), and for doing a good-sized print run of the issue. Any money raised past the goal will be put straight back into the project and will help fund the art team for the subsequent issues.
There are some wonderful rewards available to prospective backers of the project, ranging from a simple PDF copy, to a signed print copy of the comic; from a prose PDF which gives background to the main story, to a snazzy white Transdimensional t-shirt; and two original art reward levels from cover artist FEDERICO DE LUCA – a pencil sketch commission or a fully illustrated (pencils, inks, colours) commission of whatever the backer desires.
The project launches on March 13th and any support would be amazing: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1420352081/1918314734?token=2a7cf9ff
