This moment has been a long time in the making. I’ve been working on this book on the scripting and project management end for most of this year. We wanted to get to the point where we were more than halfway done with the art to run a campaign for this, and we finally reached that point!
The Ember War, for those who don’t know, is a military science fiction series by Richard Fox, which has sold more than 500,000 units and won a Dragon Award (beating out my Star Realms: Rescue Run for the award, curses!). It’s an incredible series and I was happy as a fan of the series to be able to script the comic book adaptation.
What’s cool is this marks the first indie science fiction novel to be adapted in this manner. This is an historic event which will open up new markets for many independent authors. It’s a true pioneering of the medium.
