Welcome to the Interstellar Healer, the Rock and Roll Musical/Graphic Novel! My name is Tim Zimmermann and I am the creator and voice of The Interstellar Healer.

What is The Interstellar Healer?
Part Graphic Novel, part Rock Opera the Interstellar Healer is a comic book with singing and a musical soundtrack. Hand drawn by Emiliano Urich, the series is, for now, mainly viewable in video form on YouTube. As it gains more patrons, I hope to create more ways to view the series (including performing it live).

Who is the Interstellar Healer? 
The Interstellar Healer is the main character of my musical graphic novel series of the same name. He is a healer made of stardust, and the most powerful being in the Universe (which, in fact, is quite highly populated!) He has the ability to heal any disease, any affliction other than death itself, and has been healing since the beginning of the Universe. But this power comes at a price. Try as he might, he cannot remember when or why he started healing, because of the gravity of Singularity 47, a small but powerful black hole in his chest. A chance meeting with an angel made of indigo light sets him on a path to discovering the truth about this black hole, his power and his existence...as well as that of the entire Universe. 

Where can I see the first episode?
Right here! 


What will you do with my money?
Your contribution will help fund each episode. The more patrons I have, the more cool stuff I'll be able to do, like more complex animation, marketing and promotion, and live performances. And you will also receive rewards, like getting yourself drawn into the comic, having songs written about you, and producer credits! I'll also post exclusive videos, answer Q and A, and have hangouts as well!

Who are you?
I'm Tim Zimmermann, a musician, composer and singer living in Nashville TN. I started writing the Interstellar Healer in 2007 and its slowly evolved since. If you're ever in town, drop me a line and say hello! https://www.facebook.com/tim.zimmermann.14
