April 9, 2015— In the same fashion as The Last Airbender, Naruto, Dragonball Z, and One Piece, Alexander Perez and his team of manga and comic books enthusiasts have created their own epic comic book and has launched it on Kickstarter.
FTR: For The Realm, is a full-color, manga-influenced comic book series that takes place in the God Universe, a realm that is in a Continuous War. Everyone in God Universe are equipped with god-like powers such as supreme strength, lightning speed, and many other supernatural characteristics that enables them to fight with their equally powerful enemies.
Perez gives a preview of the storyline, “In the God Universe there is no distinction between war and life itself – you fight to exist and winning is the only way to survive! Behind the scenes, there’s a more important struggle taking place. Most of the Warrior-Gods and clans know that the God Universe was created as a proving ground to create the ultimate cosmic soldiers, supremely powerful beings able to withstand a coming assault from an ancient enemy.”
The first chapter of this comic book series follows two characters on training on a collision course with each other: Dais and Naya. According to Perez, he noticed that women are underrepresented in many manga stories and comics. With FTR: For The Realm, he wants to change this by bringing in female characters that are as strong as the male. “Likewise, the full expression of human diversity is also celebrated in FTR: For the Realm. All races and creeds will be represented, kicking ass and taking names. I don’t want a whitewashed story for the “mass market” like we’ve seen in other places,” added Perez.
“Every single, last penny goes toward purchasing the artwork and rewards for the 1st Chapter. Longer answer: Uh… that’s it actually. I’m looking for $3,000 to really elevate the look and quality of FTR: For the Realm, to make this story something that really does the ideas and the setting and the characters justice,” says the FTR: For The Realm writer and creator.
By supporting the Kickstarter campaign, backers will be able to help Perez and his team to finish the first chapter of the comic book series, as well as create buzz within the comics and crowdfunding communities.
In return, backers will get numerous rewards, such as social media ‘Thank You’ credits, PDF copies of FTR: For The Realm, high resolution digital character sketches with custom messages from the characters, Kickstarter-exclusive posters, printed limited-edition FTR: For The Realm First Chapter, master files of the prologue and first chapter, characters after their likeness, and so many more.
