Bryan Q. Miller, currently writing Smallville Season 11 and former writer of Batgirl starring Stephanie Brown, today launched a Kickstarter for a new all-ages adventure graphic novel. Joining Miller on art is Marcio Takara the former penciller of Blue Beetle and Boom’s The Incredibles.
The book, Earthward, will follow the adventures of six kids (the Mercury Six) as they try find their parents. Here’s a look at the team.
Miller who describes the project as “Goonies in Space.” told me “"It’s a love letter to all things space and adventure that I consumed growing up - an all-ages, galactic journey to reunite a family. Six friends, against the Universe."
If you’ve read Miller’s Batgirl or Smallville you know he does a great job at balancing fun and adventure. So stop by his Kickstarter, check out the preview video. You can pre-order a hard copy of the book for $15 and it comes with extras. You can also pick packages that include your choice of original artwork by Marcio, Marcos To, Cat Staggs, Pere Perez and Dustin Nguyen.
Here’s some more art from Marcio Takara.
