Hi, I’m John Luzar, the man behind the mask here at Shower Cap’s Blog, and this is my very first comic book! Putting this book together has been…wow. This is my lifelong dream, my suddenly-I’m-forty-holy-crap-I’m-gonna-die-someday, time to stop waiting and DO THE THING project. And I couldn’t be happier.
The Worth & The Cost is a self-contained, stand-alone, 22-page story, a science-fiction fable for a Resistance audience celebrating the people who choose to come off of the sidelines and onto the front lines. People like YOU.
It’s the story of Martyn, a palace guard, and Wyndym, an imperial bureaucrat, living under the oppressive rule of Emperor Penryck, whose selfishness and incompetence threaten to drive the planet into starvation, ruin, and riot. (Sound familiar?)
For Martyn, doing the right thing means putting his family first. But do you owe your children comfort…or freedom?
Wyndym tries desperately to improve the system from within, but what happens when she’s made party to a global atrocity?
And Emperor Penryck? He just wants to avoid getting any peasant blood on his nice, clean, cape.
For fans of the blog, I confess there’s not as much swearing as you’re used to, but you’ll certainly recognize the righteous indignation and loathing for thuggish autocracy.
We are drawn, inked, colored, lettered, and formatted, just lookin’ for a little help with the printing costs.
Chip in during the campaign’s opening days and I’ll thank you in the physical book!
