What it is all about.
Lacuna is a comic by game designer Ed Jowett, and veteran writer Amy Allworden. Together with dialogue consultant Johnathan Lewis, Penciller and Inker Rudi Rillf and colourist Sathit Kaew, they have brought Ed’s “Era: The Empowered” universe to life in what, we hope, will be the first in a number of comics following individuals in that Universe.
The goal of this Kickstarter is to raise funds to complete the comic and to get it printed, as well as getting up on various digital sites such as Comixology and Amazon.
By supporting this comic, you’re not just bringing a comic to life about the kind of coming of age we always imagined superheroes would have in the modern world. You’re helping us get comics out into the world that aren’t just the same old thing with superheroes.
The Empowered universe is huge, with a weight of history that will be explored in the rulebooks, but there’s not much time to focus on individual characters within that, to really watch them grow (because players want to do that themselves!). We want to give you the chance to help shape this universe with your comments and feedback, as it’s being created.
Chris is a typical teenager. He’s headstrong, rebellious and has been in trouble with the law more than once.
Ed Jowett is a tabletop roleplaying game creator, with several games and a few comics under his belt. This is the first comic in his Era: The Empowered universe, but there are already 2 (with a third on the way!) in his Era: The Consortium universe!
Amy Allworden has been writing for years! She met up with Ed during Era: The Consortium and the two have been working together ever since!
Johnathan Lewis has been in the industry 15 years and ghostwritten extensively, along with producing his own works like Peeved! He’s been consulting for us on dialogue and also will be doing the lettering.
Rudi Roelff produces some great superhero artwork and leapt at the opportunity to join in this project!
Sathit Kaew is an experienced colourist with a lot of work under his belt. He’s lending his touch to Lacuna #1 to bring it to reality for you!
