Kickstart This: Terminal Protocol
By Jordan Alsaqa (@EndigoMaster) & Rem Broo
Check out the Kickstarter page for Terminal Protocol, a new sci-fi comic from Jordan Alsaqa and Rem Broo. This will be Alsaqa’s first major comic book; Broo won critical-acclaim for his dynamic visuals in 2013’s End Times of Bram & Ben mini-series from Image with writers James Asmus and Jim Festante.
From the Kickstarter:
“How far would you push the boundaries of science to save the one you love?
It’s the question at the heart of Terminal Protocol, a near-future science-fiction comic about robotics, artificial intelligence and the limits of the human brain. Dr. Katherine Talton and Dr. Dustin Jessup are the founders of Future Sight, the groundbreaking company that has changed the face of robotics for a quarter-century. The two are also husband and wife, and they’ve lived a good life as scientific explorers of the unknown.
However, when Dustin learns that he’s been diagnosed with a terminal illness, it seems that their time together is coming to its end. Unable to accept the limits of medical science, Katherine throws herself into exploring the boundaries of robotics and artificial intelligence to try and find a way to save her husband. But as the end draws near for Dustin, Katherine must consider if she’s pushing too far past the natural order of things…”
In addition to a write-up of the rewards (some of which are super cool, like artist commissions and guest spots!) and plans for the funds, Alsaqa and Broo have also posted a 6-page prologue to Terminal Protocol. If the writing and art in those sample pages are any indication, Terminal Protocol should make for an engaging, intriguing, character-driven story!
