Anime-inspired comic “Sovereign” launches crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo
Earlier this week, the crowdfunding campaign for Sovereign, a new graphic novel created by Andrew Huerta, went live on Indiegogo. Sovereign is a science-fiction tale heavily inspired by anime art of Masami Ōbari and Akira “Akiman” Yasuda. The Indiegogo campaign will fund a 48-page book intended as the first in a 3-part series.
Below is a plot summary taken from the Sovereign Indiegogo page.
“SOVEREIGN is an action-adventure epic that takes place in the year 2516 M.E. (Machine Era). A post-apocalyptic future where advanced sentient machines known as The Grey, have laid waste to most of humanity and are draining the planet of it’s Eon-Energy. But the Earth resurrects it’s champion, the destroyer and waste layer… Sovereign. But Sovereign is no hero. He is a force of nature and once the Grey is destroyed, will humans be next?”
Backers can get a digital version of Sovereign for $6, while physical copies (all signed by Huerta) start at $25. Those who spend more can get exclusive prints, extra copies of the book, original concept art, and the original page artwork from the Sovereign book.
Huerta joined Jawbreakers artist Jon Malin on Malin’s YouTube channel to discuss the Sovereign project in significant detail, which you can watch here. Otherwise, check out some sample artwork below or visit the full Sovereign Indiegogo page here.
