Don’t Call Him Geode! “Life on Cora: Oktaz Climbs” Now on Indiegogo (Crowdfunding Spotlight)
The independent comic book creative team at Faeries and Ents launched a crowdfunding campaign for issue 3 of their fantasy series Life on Cora, which features a land of living rocks (none of whom are named “Geode”).
Subtitled Oktaz Climbs, this third issue is written by Martin Fisher (Star Wars, Transformers) and features illustrations by Mike Jimmy De Bruin (Infinite Guardian) and colors by Eristeine (Yo Ho).
Here’s the official plot synopsis taken from the Life on Cora Indiegogo campaign page:
We hold no secrets, we share all knowledge. This is how we survive.
Somewhere deep within the mountain lives The Mother, and The Mother gives life to all R’K’Hola. They break away from the mountain every day, supplying it with water and food, gathering information from other creatures on Druss, and protecting The Mother from harm.
Today Oktaz went out for water, avoiding the gigantic Hydraki birds who break them up for nesting material. That is until he hears a scream for help nearby…
Backers can get a digital version of Life on Cora issue three for $5, while physical copies of the book start at $12. For those who have extra money to spend, you can also pick up multiple copies of the book, variant covers, and both original and commissioned art. You can also get physical copies of the first two issues if you’d like to catch up, though Oktaz Climbs is described as a stand-alone story. It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $12 for those in the United States.
Still not sold? The Life on Cora team has made the digital versions of the first two issues available for free (here), as well as the first eight pages of issue three (here). Now that’s some confident salesmanship!
The best part? The Life on Cora campaign is already fully funded, so now all that the Faeries and Ents team has to worry about is stretch goals and fulfillment.
