A better way to tell a story

We want to create affordable products that will sell next to current comic books, graphic novels, and other paper print products in niche and specialty stores. Our primary product is an innovative spin on an old favorite. We have reimagined the comic book for modern printing as the Comic-Scroll.

Reintroducing the comic book in an exciting and collectable form will allow us to create a new relationship with vendors, retailers, and fans.

All this can be done affordably and unlike other indie developers we are equally focused on logistics as well as product development.

What Makes us Different?

Rather than investing in difficult and expensive book printing, we create a single streamlined poster that links to added digital value on the website.  With low-cost printing, we can give retailers affordable pricing options and by understanding the collectors’ market we can offer them desired premiums.

Creating a symbiotic relationship at the retail level to generate interest in this new version of content distribution is the way of the future. By giving the retail side a generous profit, we hope to keep up with and maybe one day outpace similarly themed floppies.

Comic scrolls are just the beginning and when we have ground in these stores, we will expand our offerings to include AR books, RPG games, and other collectable goods.

We want to pack as much as we can into our products, keep them low in price, high in resale value and always try to create new and dynamic ways to tell a thoughtful and inspiring story.

It sometimes feels like we sit just adjacent to the darkest timeline, and as we doom scroll on our devices our heads are filled with outrage, ours or otherwise.  Our hearts break and our indignation is righteous.

The choices are to drown in TikTok 30 second heroine or face the fact that our civilization has crossed one more point of no return. We can’t change the world, but we can spend our time creating something accessible, that makes our readers feel like they are investors, and to, if only for a moment, interrupt that doom-scroll with thoughtful distraction.

Would you violate the Prime Directive?

The difficulty with using the Prime Directive in a game is it's hard to nurture a compelling reason to violate it.  For my game, I have said it is just like the laws that protect minors. They exist for a reason and to violate them is against everything we believe in....

BTS What is a Light Novel?

The term comes from Japan and is used for young adult illustrated books. They are closer to American pulp fiction novels than graphic novels as they don’t have heavy art. They aren’t like Manga, a standard comic, or a webcomic in that respect. They were made to pump...
