A lot of what we do at Krypton Radio is seek out and expose exciting new talent to our readers and listeners, fans of the science fiction and comics genres. This graphic novel project by Christopher Lackey combines both.
Transreality is (or will be) a graphic novel about a 21st century man thrust into a post-singularity, transhuman world. Imagine a universe where no one dies. The human mind is a digital program that can be copied, saved and reprogramed. The idea of self and identity are completely redefined.
In Lackey’s graphic novel, James Watson, is a man living his everyday life in 2013 Yorkshire…or so he thinks. As this futuristic story unfolds, James discovers a universe of splintered cultures, artificial intelligences, uplifted animals and virtual worlds. James explores his new universe, his place in it and what it means to be human.
To get his graphic novel from a script and some proof of concept pages to a finished soft-cover 128 page graphic novel will take a fair chunk of change, so Christopher turned to crowd sourced funding to get the support he needs. His Kickstarter campaign at this writing has 19 days to go to reach his goal of $11,500, and so far $8,786 USD has been pledged by donors who want to see his dream come to fruition- including us.
We wish you the best of luck, Mr. Lackey – your project looks very deserving.
