by Ron Marz, Andy Lanning, Rick Leonardi and Netho Diaz

***UPDATE APRIL '23: The book is in the final stages of lettering and will be ready for print this month! Due to the delays and how long it’s taken for the book to be completed, we're re-opening the campaign for 2 weeks for anyone who missed the original campaign, and for retailers to hop on with the knowledge that the wait time is significantly decreased.

A legendary member of an outer-space corps of heroes has withdrawn to a remote world in solitude. But her past catches up to her as former comrades arrive to convince her to come back and bring a former arch-nemesis to justice.

RESOLUTION is an epic new tale by the masters of cosmic storytelling, presented as an oversized hardcover graphic novel. It is written by Ron Marz and Andy Lanning, who’s also handling inking duties for the project. Originally slated for Rick Leonardi on pencils, changes occurred that took him off the project, but not before he provided the main cover artwork, character and world designs and a few interior spreads for the book. Fortunately, Marz and Lanning were able to recruit rising superstar Netho Diaz to take over the remaining art duties, and enlisted Paul Pelletier, Bart Sears and Tom Raney to handle bonus stories and flashbacks.

Also includes pin-ups by Liam Sharp, Phil Jimenez, Greg Broadmore, Wes Craig, Paul Pelletier, Ron Lim, Bart Sears, Luke Ross, Jeff Johnson and others.

Ron Marz, Andy Lanning, Rick Leonardi and Netho Diaz have produced epic stories spanning the Marvel and DC Universes, and even a galaxy far, far away. Now they’re joining forces to create their own cosmic playground, populating it with compelling characters and intriguing situations. With your help, we can make it a reality! 
RESOLUTION is the tale of Xaan Maddox, a legendary member of the outer-space corps of heroes known as The Resolute. Now retired, Xaan Maddox has withdrawn to a remote world in solitude. Having quit THE RESOLUTE to live out her retirement on a remote world, she tends floating gravity seas, harvesting fish to scratch out a living. It’s the simple, solitary life she wants.
But former comrades arrive and attempt to recruit her to again don the exo-suit, so they can bring to justice an alien warlord who is Xaan’s former arch-nemesis. What follows forces Xaan to confront her own past, and places the entire universe in deadly peril.

THE RESOLUTE is a cosmic peacekeeping force, with members recruited from a vast array of worlds, administered by mysterious alien species known as THE HILT. Agents of the RESOLUTE are called BLADES.  


Once recruited, young cadets undergo The Process, during which they are bonded with an exo-suit, fitted with skin-jacks embedded at the base of the neck, spine, wrists, and ankles. The exo-suit becomes part of each recruit, remaining bonded for life. The exo-suit can be summoned at will, generated by the skin-jacks.  

The suits transmute cosmic energy called Dark Matter, granting the ability to survive the vacuum of space, super-strength and resilience, and the ability to generate energy weapons and blasts. BLADES have protected the universe time and time again. Xaan Maddox was the greatest of them. Perhaps she will be again… 


Our Mission

Andy, Rick, Ron an Netho wanted to take the opportunity make the graphic novel’s creative process as inclusive as possible. While stopping short of any spoilers that would impact enjoyment of the completed story, the creation of the pages will be shared whenever possible. Supporters can be involved as the graphic novel takes shape, including opportunities for input or even being drawn into the book!
The entire process will be documented in the RESOLUTION COMPANION book, a 48-page comic-size volume that chronicles the complete creation of the graphic novel. The COMPANION will provide a rare, behind-the-scenes glimpse at all stages of the story’s evolution, from script to layouts, pencils, inks, color, and lettering. Featuring extensive commentary from Ron Marz and Andy Lanning, the RESOLUTION COMPANION is perfect for process junkies, aspiring creators, and fans of superior storytelling.
We hope you take this cosmic journey with us!

Stretch Goals


Andy Lanning Pencils & Inks:





We originally expected the book to be done roughly 4 months after the original campaign was over and then sent off to the printers. The whole process to get everything made, shipped to our fulfillment partner and sent out to all supporters was to be another 3 months. So estimated delivery was originally March 2022. Then, due to various delays, the finish line was pushed further out into mid/late 2022.


***Update April '23: The book is in the final stages of lettering and will be ready for print this month! We'll head to the printers once we have our final order totals after this last-chance campaign is over. We aim to have the book in everyone's hands by late summer 2023!


Apologies for the delays, but your patience will be rewarded, as the book looks incredible!


If you're a retailer and you wish to support the campaign by ordering your own exclusive variant cover/dust jacket featuring any of the collaborating artists' works that are revealed as the campaign progresses, write us at and we'll let you know minimum orders and pricing!

Frequently asked questions

Yes! We encourage you to get more than 1 item! That could be multiple copies of the same reward, or you can mix and match rewards! There is no limit, unless otherwise stated in the reward description.

Our campaigns are for a worldwide audience unless stated otherwise in the campaign. All international orders are sold with the terms DAP (Delivered At Place). You are responsible for any duties and taxes required for the shipment's entry into your country. Our carriers may require you to pay taxes and fees related to importation and customs brokerage of your shipment -- but if your item is really low in value, it may fall under the customs de minimis of most countries. For more information, please contact USPS

Zoop does not store or keep your credit card info. Stripe simply holds the credit card info until the end of a successful campaign and then charges it. It is strictly for this one time use and won't charge it ever again.

You can either access the transaction through your account and click the cancel button, or contact us at and we'll cancel it for you and send back a confirmation email.


Cancellations of rewards or add-ons of $500 or more must be made before there are 72 hours left in the campaign. The reason for this is it can have a negative effect on the tally of the campaign. If it is a limited reward or add-on, there may not be sufficient time for someone else to purchase it, leaving the campaign possibly not funded. We ask for your courtesy of the people running the campaign when making these decisions.

Please use the notes section in the last checkout step or you could e-mail us at with that info during the campaign if you'd like to get it out of the way. Otherwise, we'll be reaching out to all supporters of rewards that require feedback shortly after the campaign is over.

If you want to make changes, you should first cancel your original order and then start over with a new one. If you don't do that and simply process an additional order, the way our system is currently set up you may end up being overcharged for shipping -- which we could remedy for you, but it just takes that extra step of catching it and crediting you back the extra shipping, so please try the prior way first.

Rewards are the priority items that the creators have chosen for the campaign. Add-Ons are meant to be secondary items that are 'unlocked' after you buy something from the Reward level. There are no restrictions on buying Rewards, but you can only buy Add-Ons if you've bought a Reward. Zoop sets this up under the direction of the creators. Some may choose to only have Rewards, some may choose an even balance of Rewards and Add-Ons, and others may choose to only have one or two Rewards with the rest of the items being Add-Ons.

Since we have an a la carte rewards system, shipping rates will vary from supporter to supporter. We use a weight-based calculation system in your checkout cart, though, so, after you enter your country, you'll be able to see it calculated in real time with each item you add.

No - this is it! We're essentially your in-campaign pledge manager. If you are interested in supporting these creators, this is the time to do it!  And it's the exact reason we allow you to purchase as many rewards as you want during the campaign!
