Kickstarting Comics: ‘Jacin And The Olympians’ Graphic Novel

by Olly MacNamee

One hundred years into the future and the Olympian gods are dead. And humanity has fled Earth on the starship Olympia.

That’s the basic premise of a new graphic novel currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter. Brought to you be co-creators Shane Berryhill and Alex Ogle with art by Mattia Monaco and colours by Maja Opacic, Jacin and the Olympians, runs until September 12th, 2021 and shipping December 2021.

Like other Kickstarter campaigns there are plenty of pledges and rewards to choose from. At the lower end there’s  the graphic novel itself which you can grab for $30 (full colour version) as well as pricer pledges such as the $125 pledge which will get you both the full-coloured and black and white editions of the graphic novel (signed) as well as a slew of extras.

Take a look at the cover and several preview pages and head on over to the official campaign page here to learn more an to back this sci-fi project.

“In the near future, the titans of myth return, revealing the dark, alien truth behind their legend. The remnants of humanity escape aboard the Olympia, a spacefaring ark. Now, teen prodigy Jacin Mukai and her fellow Olympians search for a way to activate the robot Colossi, hoping to unite them to create their one hope for survival against the titan menace–the giant robot protector, Talos.”
