Anunnaki – The Lords of Eternity is a stunning-looking project from writer Van Ted and artist Wamberto Nicomedes (better known as Wam Nick), whose name you may recognise as one of the illustrators of the revived “King Cobra” for STRIP Magazine a few years back.
Right now, the creative team are putting the finishing touches to a crowdfunded “ashcan” of “Anunnaki – Os Senhores da Eternidade” (as it’s known in the creators native Brazil), that will be circulated to prospective publishers. But the plan is for Anunnaki, a story based on ancient Babylonian myth, to be a mini-series of six issues, distributed in US format comics, including 22 pages of strip.
The ashcan gained $20,000 in crowdfunding through a Brazil-based service earlier this year.
“This is the first step, and everything is being done very carefully!” says author Van Ted, an author and scholar in the field of the theory of Ancient Astronauts, especially that formulated by researcher Zecharia Sitchin.
“This pilot issue contains the first episode of the series, which will be presented to the publishers in order to produce the whole series, so that the product reaches more readers and is much cheaper for the final consumer.”
Aware how difficult it is to secure a publisher, the team plan to continue production of episodes of the story through crowdfunding, launching a new campaign for each episode.
Van Ted is a popular writer for Crônicas da Terra – Zecharia Sitchin (the Chronicles of the Earth -by Zecharia Sitchin) and you can also find him in discussion with like minds intrigued by the theory of Ancient Astronauts on YouTube.
“The idea of making the comic came after I created Anunnaki Cards as an aid and guide to the study of the Anunnaki universe,” says Van.
“That’s when I started looking for a professional designer, who understood perfectly the spirit of the thing. Then I met Wam Nick , a great artist, and perfect for that job
Brazilian artist Wam Nick‘s work has appeared in hundreds of comics, picture books and entertainment magazines since 1990. He’s also worked on stage design, costume design and concept art for theatre. He’s also the creator of POPPS, an initiative to produce material for traveling publications.
With 25 years of experience, he and his team want to give the project a young face and a dynamic and engaging reading with all the features that a great comics work has to have.
The art on this project looks great, as you’d expect from a talent like Wam. Do check out the Page on Facebook, Anunnaki – The Lords of Eternity (Anunnaki – Os Senhores da Eternidade) for more information and links to further crowdfunding campaigns!
