Story

 

Taisce Brennan inherited a seal coat and empathy magick from their selkie mother. But because their mother vanished when they were a pup, Taisce never learned to control their empathic gift. Now a 24-year-old package courier, they take magick-blocking medication, deliver packages to make ends meet, and generally attempt to avoid running into trouble with The Core—the authoritarian regime that controls all aspects of life above the clouds. Taisce’s humble livelihood is blasted away after an explosion at the postal facility where they work—an explosion blamed on Taisce, who finds themself a fugitive running from The Core.

 

Skyvein is a fantasy/sci-fi webcomic featuring queer people of color, and it’s written and illustrated by me, sen holiday. All of Volume One (and some of Volume Two!) is free to read online at https://www.skyveincomic.com.

CW: some violence and occasional swearing

 

 

This Zoop campaign will bring the first 10 chapters (240 full-color pages) of Volume One to print in a perfect-bound, softcover graphic novel. If the stretch goals are met, i’ll add some exclusive, behind-the-scenes bonus content!

Timeline

Skyvein: Volume One is complete and ready for printing, as are all rewards. All stretch goals are at least loosely sketched out. The campaign will end February 24th, wallpapers and PDFs will be delivered March 2022, physical rewards should (barring any delays) ship to me by March/April 2022, physical rewards will ship out to all backers by July 2022 at the latest, and commissions will be delivered by July 2022 at the latest.

Risks

This is my first time crowdfunding! The biggest risk would be with the printing and shipping delays, as Skyvein: Volume One is complete and ready for printing, and all the rewards are at least loosely sketched out, if not ready as well. Skyvein is a labor of love and i know that i’ll try my best to get you the best product as timely as possible if we make the goal! What i am confident about is that if anything gets delayed, i will communicate with you, my dear backers, as quickly and thoroughly as possible. Thanks for helping me make this dream of bringing Skyvein to print come true!
