It’s good to see yet another imaginative comic concept being launched on Kickstarter, with the alternate reality adventure, Skies Of Fire, having exceeded the original funding target, while the funding period continues until 11th April.
As described on the Kickstarter page:
Skies of Fire is a new comic created and written by Vincenzo Ferriero and Ray Chou with art by Pablo Peppino. Skies is an epic adventure centered on gigantic, diesel-powered airships and their duels on the high skies – think massive battles with howitzer broadsides, airplane dogfights, and close quarter boardings.
The project’s official Facebook page provides additional information in the ‘about’ section:
Skies of Fire is the first project from Mythopoeia, a new creative company founded by Vincenzo and Ray. Mythopoeia aims to bring mythical narratives to the modern audience. We believe in epic stories set in fantastical worlds with their own histories and cultures.
It’s great that there are continued examples of crowd funding allowing creative concepts to be produced, without imposed restrictions or demographics distorting the original idea. The successes of these ventures show that the audience/readership is there.
Thank-you to Ray and Vince for the use of their images.
Onwards and upwards!
