Legend of the Ztarr is a sword-and-sandals skeptical-themed manga epic that I’ve been writing and illustrating as my main publishing project. Recently, the popular crowd-funding site, Kickstarter, made itself open to Canadian creators, making it possible for me to launch the Legend of the Ztarr Kickstarter, which aims to create a print edition of Volume 1, and conversion to a full e-book for all major e-readers.
Over the years, I’ve spoken at TED, TAM, and skeptical events about the power of using storytelling–comics, TV, movies, books–to promote science-based thinking and secular humanist values. Audiences can become emotionally invested in characters of a work, and if those characters are skeptic role models, we can get people to connect to the importance of critical thinking.
To make Legend of the Ztarr Volume 1 possible, I need your help to spread the word about this unique series. Those who back $25 will be getting a copy of the book plus an exclusive Legend of the Ztarr bookmark that I’m drawing especially for the Kickstarter campaign. Bigger rewards include cool things like being drawn as a background character or even a minor role character right into the story itself!
