There are only FIVE days to go in this Kickstarter project by Australian comic innovator Sutu, which doesn't give us all a great deal of time to get on over to support this innovative project. But let's do just that! Click here to learn how you can support this Melbourne-based "Augmented Reality comic book" featuring Modern Polaxis, a paranoid time traveller... I have no financial interest in this project succeeding, apart from my own Pledge, but I feel it is well deserving of your support too. What's it all about? Well, head on over before it is too late.... Here's a sneak peek!
"Sutu is a writer, illustrator and interactive designer from Australia. He has a background in creating military HUDs for the Australian Defence Force. After leaving the military in 2007 he pursued a career as a digital story teller. Since then he has created over 20 episodes of interactive digital story content including the Webby award winning Nawlz, an online interactive sci-fi comic series and NEOMAD, an interactive comic book/space opera set in the Australian outback. Sutu has also adapted traditional Australian Aboriginal stories into interactive comics as part of his work with Big hART (a social arts and justice organisation), and created multimedia installations for Australia's National Museum. His work has been exhibited in Australia and internationally and he has been a keynote speaker at numerous international design events and comic festivals."
