- Venus Rises #3
- Created & Written by Jason G. Birdsall
- Illustrated, Colored, & Lettered by Adam Stone
- Fully funded on Kickstarter
In the near future, Earth is devastated by a chain of cataclysmic events leading to a pandemic collapse of governments. The human race narrowly escapes Earth with technology amassed by mega-corporations, and colonizes Mars and Venus. As Venus becomes home to the working class, and Mars the seat of power, long-running political and cultural clashes return. Talk of revolution permeates the ether. Humankind finds itself once again at the crossroads of extinction as…. VENUS RISES.
Venus Rises: Exordium follows two separate stories. One follows a Venusian salvage crew striving to stay neutral in an ever escalating civil war between Mars (the upper class) and Venus (the working class). The other follows a Martian asset protection enforcer tasked to save his parent corporation from a hostile takeover. The two stories will eventually converge into one as events unfold.
Venus Rises: Exordium 3 will be a full color comic book that will be 30+ pages in standard American comic size, on high-quality gloss paper. Backers get a digital and/or physical copy of the issue. Includes 30+ pages of story (no ads) plus bonus content at the end of the comic book.
