Hi, everyone! I'm Craig Petersen. I'm working on a new comic book series, called Echoes from the Drift. It's an '80s inspired sci-fi story about two young adventurers, Jenni and Zayf, who voyage across the dimensions and explore parallel worlds.
Echoes is a story I've wanted to tell for many years with a lot of influences from TV shows and films such as UFO Robo Grendizer, Clint Eastwood's "Spaghetti Westerns", Blade Runner, Mad Max and the original Star Wars trilogy.
There will be a fun and varied ensemble of key supporting characters, some of which are introduced in a prequel to the series called In Ruins. All ten pages of In Ruins can be read for free at my website. (Contains coarse language and some violent scenes.)
I've launched a Kickstarter campaign for Echoes to create the first issue of a five issue story. The campaign runs until the 17th of April, so come and join us!
In the Kickstarter campaign, apart from the comic, I'm offering unique sketches and also the original artwork from Echoes as Backer Rewards. We've hit 50 Backers, which means print copies and enhanced digital copies of Echoes #1 will now be available to most Backers!
There are print copies available and a limited number of original pages and unique sketches that can pre-ordered. The estimated delivery date is October 2016 for print copies and inked pages and November 2016 for unique sketches. If you have any questions, there's a contact form in the page or you can post a message to me here!
Page 18 of the comic has been pencilled and inked. The colouring of all 22 pages will be worked on once all the pages have been inked (to keep the pages looking consistent). It's all going great and I'm happy with how the pages are turning out!
