Do you ever feel like the universe is fragile, like if the wrong ancient evil came along, it could all be over? That’s King Theosis feels in the upcoming sci-fi saga, The Hunt for the Solavore. This series takes place in a universe where a beast known as the Solavore has reawakened and is out to satiate its hunger for suns. Theosis, with help from his husband, will have to go on the offensive and figure out how to protect his people from this existential threat.

A metaphorical and atmospheric, 24-page full colour comic journey.
Where No One Grows is a story of forming new friendship and finding a new home. We follow Marlo, a young woman who carries a chair with her wherever she goes, and Flame Monkey, a passionate and impulsive new face. It’s the third volume in Gaeta’s eponymous series, although each story stands on its own and only connects to the others in small, subtle ways. This volume, like the others, is a 24-page, full color story. Check out what that looks like in a preview on the campaign page.

Creators: Jake Smith (writer), Hiram Corbett (artist)
