GUYTRON ORIGINS: HOMECOMING
Galvin Fry is a normal 20 year old retail stock boy, who encounters a crashed spaceship. Suddenly he found himself face-to-face with an alien being that called himself “Lycon” from the planet called “Macron”.
Lycon informed Galvin that his planet was invaded and earth will face the great dangers of the invasion as well. Earth will also face a great evil nemesis called ‘Lord Versa’. Galvin is told he’s the only one who can stop the invasion. However, the perishing alien gives his “Gadget tron” gauntlet glove to him. (The Gadget tron is a symbiotic bio-armor that merges with it’s host.)
The symbiotic weapon has bonded with Galvin and can not be removed. However, he becomes a cosmic hero called “Guytron”. He will have more to worry about, than every day personal life issues. Now it appears that the fate of the universe rests on his shoulders. This is a superhero – romance – action – sitcom where anything and everything can happen
Tarheel Tales of Terror, Issue #1
Around the shadowy bends of the highways and byways of North Carolina lurk dark things of foreboding myths and legends. Early European accounts of North Carolina relate it as “The goodliest land under the cope of heaven,” but these early settlers knew nothing of the dark forces which the native inhabitants knew lurked in the dark. And, as each new culture arrived in The Old North State, stories followed them from their native lands, bringing tales of creatures and ghosts that can chill the soul. Tarheel Tales of Terror, a new comic book from comics creator Fiona W. Dunn and author Jeremy Clos, explores these legends in graphic detail.
Issue #1 spans from the eastern coast to the western mountains, bringing you two different tales of desecrated marriage.

The Obsidian Spindle Saga: 4 mythic fairy tale fantasy books
Fairy tales are real.
Rose Briar is a diabetic college student without insurance. She’s been scraping by through a combination of maxing out credit cards and relying upon the kindness of strangers.
Unfortunately, she’s spent every dollar at her disposal. There’s no money left to buy her life-saving insulin. Without her medication, Rose falls into a diabetic coma. She tumbles into a deep slumber and wakes up in a fantastical place called the Dream Realm, where fairy tales and legends of old are still very much alive.
She has one chance to wake up.
She must trek across the world, visit the most powerful object in the land, the Obsidian Spindle, and entreat with the fates; the only beings powerful enough to send her soul back to Earth. But evil forces don’t want her to leave. They will stop at nothing to capture her and make sure she never goes home again.
Now, with the help of her half-gorgon girlfriend and a mysterious red rider, Rose must race across the land fighting dragons, monsters, and the forces of the Wicked Witch, Nimue, in order to reach the Obsidian Spindle before her body dies on Earth and she’s trapped in the Dream Realm forever.
The Vi Empire
It begins with a baby…
Buried and alone, yet somehow alive in the frozen tundra of the Alaskan wastelands. APOLLONIA was the very last thing veteran JOHN HALLDOR ever wanted or needed in his solitary existence. She was a mystery; a burden. A man chooses to live in the deep cold to escape other people, after all; not to raise one.
To his credit, considering the events of the coming years, John Halldor never once regretted taking in the infant and raising her as his own.
Not when he realized Apollonia was immune to the cold; nor when she began exhibiting levels of strength far beyond what a normal human girl should possess. Not even when Apollonia spurned human food, subsisting on a diet of nothing but blood. Whatever else she was: human, vampire or something never before seen, Apollonia was his daughter, come hell or highwater.
And sure enough, hell soon came knocking…
1943, somewhere deep in Germany…
A heavily disguised stranger breaks into a Nazi megastructure, armed with explosives, and on a mission to destroy a gruesome research project and free its lab animals. But his deeper personal motives are revealed when when he’s forced to confront the manipulative scientist masterminding the program, and choose between the two warring sides of his nature.
‘mother’47 is a weird, dark little story that’s been cooking in my head for a few years now, and the time has come to, with your help, to get it onto the page.

If that sounds like a selling point to you too, then come along for the ride! There’s a reward tier for every budget from the casual fan to the hardcore art collector.
Vanishing Points – Anthology about gaining new perspectives
Vanishing Points is an 80 page Anthology, collected in a Perfect Bound, Trade Paperback Book. The book is 100% COMPLETED! We just need YOUR help bringing it to life!
In the art world, the term ‘Vanishing Point’ refers to a source of perspective. I believe the same holds true in everyday life as well. We all experience our own ‘Vanishing Points’ throughout our lives. They can come in many forms; through the loss of loved ones, loss of self identity, loss of hope, faith in your fellow man, etc. They’re everywhere. Sometimes, they come and go in our lives so quickly that we fail to understand or realize the gravity of them.
When we are capable of recognizing these moments, they can be pivotal to our futures. The decisions we make during these situations can either make or break us as individuals. These eight stories will explore those types of moments in people’s lives and the outcomes of their choices.
