My name is Emily and I've got a story for a comic book/graphic novel, but I don't have the time or resources to get it done by myself. I call it "Elorian Chronicles". I grew up watching Star Trek, Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs, and transformers and I always wanted to have something like that as Christian comic. The transformers and Star Trek has appealed to thousand if not millions of people world wide so why not have a Christian version of it, but make it original.
Now, "Elorian Chronicles" is a variation of star gate(sort of) and medieval fantasy with a space age twist to it. the story starts off as a prolog, the small island of Eloria, the population of which has gone from being pegan worshippers of the heavenly bodies(astrologers) to being believers because a follower of Jesus washed up on their shore and won them over by showing them the love of Christ. But the former High Priests of the pegan gods nurse a grudge for being demoted/kicked out. So, they go to Rome and promise the emperor Nero great wealth if he will crush the Christian movement there.
The Elorians get wind of the approaching Roman fleet and escape this world by use of a dais. The people had constructed a device to take them to the stars, so they did. The dais was a large round platform and when activated two rings of light from the outer rim would rise and intersect each other and spin faster and faster until they would create a dome of solid light and so transport the traveler across the universe. Now such energy requirements put such a strain on the water turbines that they glowed red hot and made great a mount of steam. Eventually the turbines explode. At night from roman fleet's view it seemed that the gods of lightning and the sea were battling for the island and the roar of the turbine exploding was as the roar of the great leviathan. Afterward the island of Eloria was engulfed in flames destroying everything except the dais.
The Elorian people and their live stock were transported to another world which was dubbed Veridian. There they made a new start, carrying on as they had on earth.
Then it flash forwards to the present day. The main character is a girl named Michal. She's 25 and struggling to find or keep a job. She works as a part time baker and part time dancer. Michal is practiclly a loner and want's to be away from the noise rush of the city. She getts her wish.
One day while on her way to a Bible study she gets chased by some guys in a car through the street and into a back ally. The chase ends in a museum warehouse, the back door had been left open. Michal goes in and hides among the crates and ancient artifacts and the Elorian dais. She steps onto it and somehow it activates. The rings rise and wheel around faster and faster, then when the light disapears she's in an open field on Veridian in the province of Eloria.
There she meets three teenage boys, about 16, who are cadets in the elite guard, one could call them Pages. Their out hunting the dredded ridge-hide, giant wolf creatures whose hide is more made up of matted quills than fur. Anton, Kadesh, and Simeon were on a mission to hunt down one of these creatures and bring it back to the academy. Anton cooked up the mission himself in hopes of gaining his father's love and respect and to show himself a man.
Michal joined them and on their way back they encounter a great pack of the brutes, 12 in all. One is bad enough. Michal gives them each a spray can of "dogie be good", powdered cayenne pepper. (Now if you've ever had a puff powdered cayenne in your face you know it's just awful. Sneezing balls of fire and having your eyes water and sting like everything.)
The four charge forward on their horses, dividing the pack and letting the brutes have it. The Ridge-hides go from growls to whimpers, and sercome to the young men's blades. One of the wolves is packed on a horse and taken back to the academy. At the academy Michal learns that she's no longer on earth and there's a war going on between the Elorians and a man by the name of Lord Jarus. The man is responsible for making and using the ridge-hides to hunt down and kill those who oppose him. He later unleashes his dragons, more along the lines of giant snakes like land bound leviathans. Most of this she learns from her father, whom she thought long dead.
Well that's what I've got for now so if anyone is interested in the story let me know. It's rough but it's a work in progress. Thank you.
