In our continuing goal of highlighting BlackSci-Fi and contributions by creators of color across the various creative spectrums, we here at BlackSci-Fi.com are going to highlight some awesome Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, and GoFund Me campaigns you might want to donate to. Check out the below campaign, and spread the word.
DOMINION’S LIGHT: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL – ISSUE #1
From the Kickstarter website:
DOMINION’S LIGHT is a dark fantasy/science-fiction hybrid graphic novel that introduces the world of GRAID’YAN (Gray-id-yan) and the story of three treasure hunters united by fate when they discover the KEY ULTIMA – a powerful mystical artifact pursued by the mad sorcerer LORD VALGON.
I first developed Dominion’s Light back in 1998 as a prose short story series and have long wanted to turn it into a graphic novel project but there have been numerous obstacles over the years that has prevented the production of the book.
Beyond my own aspirations, I wanted to create a new fantasy universe that reflects the diversity and inclusion of our world. The fantasy and sci-fi genres are still overwhelmingly racially and sexually monolithic and it’s time for fresh stories with contemporary characters in an unprecedented hybrid world that combines the elements of BLADE RUNNER and THE MATRIX with the stylings of LORD OF THE RINGS and GAME OF THRONES.
