Last, but not least, here are some other projects to check out and some cool deals to snag!

SPLIT EARTH SAGA is a futuristic fantasy graphic novel about a team of female warriors, each accompanied by a male blood-supplier for her weapon - fighting spectral enemies in a world where Earth has broken in two (literally). THE ARTISTIC STYLE aims to blend the Western comic's approach to power and athleticism, and the Eastern sense of aesthetics in grace and form. The creators employed a mixture of techniques found in European oil paintings and Oriental brushworks. Touched with modern digital painting and lighting effects, of course.

The creative trio have devoted 1.5 years in developing this project. Their Kickstarter offers a graphic novel with amazing story panels, with optional ArtBook and illustration prints, and a MP3 of a song produced by the creators themselves.

Check out their Kickstarter to get the book before and support the project! The book is filled with gorgeous art and has a very interesting story to it. The hard work from the creators shows, and we want to see them succeed!

Below are some preview images to give you an idea of what the book is all about.

To any WANDERLUST backers who would like to support him: if you also back Nicky's project at the $25+ tier, you can privately message him and you will receive an EXTRA 8.5 by 11" print for free!

Rock Mary Rock is a story that centers around Mary, a young teen who accidentally awakens the spirit of a deceased rock star from the 60s.
