Be a heroine! Fresh off a successful campaign for Issue # 1, the creative team behind Amelia Sky is funding the next installment of this post-apocalyptic thriller. This sci-fi/horror series follows its titular character as she learns about the world she has awakened into as well as some crucial changes about herself. (Like superhuman abilities?)
Is Amelia the world’s final hope? Get in on this arc early to join Amelia and what promises to be a team of badass female characters battle the terrifying Shriekers — described as “an ancient race berserk with a ravenous hunger for energy in all its forms.”
The art has a sort of watercolor aesthetic to it, with its gently swooping brushstrokes and rounded corners. In stark contrast to the muted color pallet are brilliant pops of red and white that the letterer has used for the sound effects and emphasis.
While the world of Amelia Sky is still unfolding, the creators make their passion in this project known. It is made clear on the Kickstarter that they are hoping to have Amelia Sky picked up by a major publisher. However, in the interim the team is dedicated to self-publishing to keep bringing Amelia’s ever-changing world to fans old and new. That is no easy feat! The odds are against self-publishers, and such a promising story deserves to be told.
