We had a great first day on Kickstarter! Check out the awesome video we made for our campaign:
Kickstarter is Here!
Hooray! I’m tremendously excited to announce the launch of our Kickstarter Campaign! We raising money to order print runs of QUEST FOR THE LAST TREE #1 and #2, so we can get them on the shelves in comic book stores everywhere. Noor and I have worked hard on these first two issues, and we’re excited to share them with the world. So please, check out our Kickstarter page, and support our project. Thanks in advance!
Countdown to Kickstarter
It won’t be long now! In less than two weeks, Noor and I will be launching our Kickstarter campaign. We’re so excited about our first foray into crowdfunding that we’ve decided to expand the scope of the campaign, and aim to fund a print run of not just Issue #1, but also Issue #2 (which is almost finished). That means print copies of both issues will be available through Kickstarter for the first time anywhere, along with a bunch of other cool rewards for our supporters. We hope to see you there!
Kickstarter is Coming!
Good news from the world of everlasting night: next month will see the launch of a Quest for the Last Tree Kickstarter campaign! Our goal will be to raise the funds necessary for our first print run of issue #1, and to pay artist Noor Rahman for his hard work on issue #2, which is already underway. Stay tuned for more details! And if you haven’t already read the digital version of issue #1, what are you waiting for?! Head on over to Amazon.com or Comixology.com to download it today!
Etched in Stone
The art work on the inside cover of most comic books is usually filler, something to act as a backdrop for the business of copyright notice and other text. Often the line art from the cover, or from one of the panels in the issue, will be re-used for this purpose. But in the first issue of Quest for the Last Tree, I didn’t want to waste a single page, so I asked Noor to create a special work of art just for the inside cover. This is the amazingly evocative image that he came up with, a subtle foreshadow of things to come:
Woohoo! Noor and I are thrilled to announce that QUEST FOR THE LAST TREE #1 is now available for download on Comixology! You can find it here:
We’re tremendously proud of this first issue, so head on over there and download it today!
The Last Tree Glyph
Central to the story of Quest for the Last Tree is the Last Tree glyph, the mark of Lucine’s sisterhood. I wanted this symbol to evoke the Jungian archetype of the World Tree, so I asked Noor to create a glyph that would work not only as a tattoo, but also fit perfectly within a circle. This magnificent design is what he ultimately came up with:
Issue #1 Wrap-around Cover
Check it out! This is the wrap-around cover art for the first issue of QFTLT, by the amazing Noor Rahman. Since a cropped version of this image serves as this website’s header image, I wanted to share the full masterpiece in all its glory, so you can properly appreciate it. Enjoy!
I’m Dave Seropian, founder of Conflux Comix, and this is the webpage for our flagship title, Quest for the Last Tree, a limited series written by yours truly and illustrated by the amazing Noor Rahman. Producing this comic book has been a labor of love for both of us, and after working on it for years, we are thrilled to announce that the glorious first issue is now available for purchase in the Amazon Kindle store, as well as on Comixology.
In the months to come, we plan to broaden our digital distribution and offer hard copies for sale as well. So stay tuned for further updates, and thanks again for visiting!
