NEOKOSMOS:01
You are being raised on a space station after an extinction event ended all human life on the planet Earth.

You are only allowed to speak to other humans via a text and image based instant messaging service, and you are given only given access to human culture from an archive of Wikipedia.

You must deal with loneliness, fraught teenage feelings, and the challenges of being raised by a species of aliens called Compies -- scientists with unclear motives.

And if this weren’t enough, your entire world is flipped upside down when the space station is attacked by a band of space pirates... 



In 2015, NEOKOSMOS began its life as an an experimental science fiction webcomic. Our goal was to create a story that read more like an animated film than a comic — each frame of the story was illustrated, with an emphasis on expression, acting, and dialog. 

You can read the webcomic version of the story for free right now at neo-kosmos.com !



We are now adapting NEOKOSMOS into a three-part series of illustrated novels! 

MANUSCRIPT PROGRESS: 108K+ words and counting, 60+ illustration thumbnails




The novels are currently in progress, but you don't have to wait to start reading the new story!  One thing we really liked about having a webcomic was the serial and interactive nature of posting a story as it is worked on -- and we are continuing that tradition right here on Patreon! $10 Patrons can follow along with the story as it is written, with new chapters every other week! If you were a reader of the webcomic and you want to catch up with all the new developments, this is the the tier for you. We are already well past the point in the story where the webcomic left off!

All Patrons receive access to our exclusive Discord community, a very chill and LGBTQ+ and autism friendly group of science fiction nerds who meet to discuss the latest chapters! If you like gay aliens, you will fit right in.
