Hi everyone, I'm J. P. McCauley and I've created a comic book called Ether Tribes.  Ether Tribes is it's own universe, like Star Wars or Middle Earth. It begins with a kingdom of people that live in giant trees and bind themselves to elemental spirits for survival. The spirits grant wondrous powers but demand a price not measured in coins. If you like monsters, high flying action and moody protagonists then you've come to the right place. If you like transhumanist fiction then stick around for the long haul as well.

It can be a complicated thing to design a universe and there's a lot to consider. Fear not, we're gonna peel this sucker like an onion, a little bit at a time. Enter Mathias, a troubled and violent boy who will mature into a true shaker of events. As he grows, his world will get more complex and his problems more intense. My goal is to finish his origins in around ten issues and then introduce three major characters with their own origin stories (with about ten issues dealing with all three). We'll then bring them all together for an epic quest.

The video I've posted is the first issue of the comic, cut and spliced into a still frame animation, so you can get a feel for what the comic is like. Every update I will post ten new pages of the comic. I would like to do two updates a month but that requires full time dedication. Your support will allow me to reach this goal. If you love comic books and want to be a part of building a new universe then join me.

If you want to see more artwork from me then check out my website http://jpmccauley.com/.
I work with Ryan Robbins on the videos. He does the music and editing. We plan on doing more so check out the youtube page here for future updates.

PS- remember, if you sign up you get access to all my previous posts. That's two comics so far. For 3 bucks you'll get the pdf's, epubs, and the score from the video as well. Look in the Activity section to find them.

PSS- I'm planning for the future now. I've already written the screenplay (155 pages) and have the stories lined out for two sequels. My end goal is to see this fantastic madness on the big screen. I welcome you to be a part of it.
