Fantasy Graphic Novel “The Lucent” Fully Funded on Indiegogo; Campaign Extended for Another 30 Days

Over the weekend, the crowdfunding campaign for The Lucent: Waking Dream successfully ended its first 30 days, raising over $13 thousand which is more than 600% beyond its initial funding goal.

Written, illustrated, colored and lettered by Australian comic book creator Michael Bancroft, Waking Dream is a 76-page graphic novel intended to be the first installment of The Lucent ongoing fantasy series. Here’s the plot synopsis taken from The Lucent‘s Indiegogo campaign page:

In WAKING DREAM, we meet ELLA FORSYTHE, a young woman who from the outside appears to be living an unremarkable life. But every night in her dreams, she’s visited by DAMON SPECTOR, an enigmatic young man who’s teaching her to do things she never thought possible. However when the barrier between dreams and reality begins to blur, she’ll be thrown into the middle of a conflict that will turn everything she knows upside down.

THE LUCENT weaves mystery, suspense, super-powered action, and romance together in a world where our myths and legends come to life. If you enjoy stories that bend reality like The Matrix, and that re-imagine history like The Highlander, or games like Assassin’s Creed, then you should consider backing THE LUCENT.


If you’re interested in picking up the book, Bancroft has extended the campaign for another 30 days so you can still buy into the project for a limited time. Backers can get a signed copy of The Lucent: Waking Dream for $26. If you have more cash to spend, you can also pick up a poster, head sketch, or original artwork.
