Homeward is a sci-fi comic for youth about belonging, describing the adventure of two young teens who grew up in space and are looking to return homeward, to Earth. Of ten episodes, already written by the author Francis McNamee, the first will be published in July 2018. The pages have already been drawn by the illustrator Laurence Dea Dionne. The comic will be finished by the end of May 2018.

We are looking for support to print this first volume of Homeward.

SYNOPSIS
Fred and Bert were raised in space by their ship. They do not know anyone else or where they're from. After discovering their heritage, they decide to return to Earth to find a home. Along the way, they visit many planets and meet a host of characters that challenge who they are and what they want. They will learn what it means to be human and what it means to want to belong.

About the project owner

 ILLUSTRATOR

Laurence Dea Dionne

I have been interested in art since I was born. I hold a Bachelor’s in Art Education from Concordia University, in Montreal, my hometown, and taught in public schools and community centers until a life-changing depression forced an important career change. Since 2015, I have settled at the Lounak Studio among other comic artists, and have self-published my first graphic novel, Nuances, about important social issues. I plan to continue to promote well-being through my next works, Zen & the Ephemeral, and Homeward.

   AUTHOR

Francis McNamee

I'm an aspiring writer from Montreal. I also work at TD Insurance and volunteer both as a scout leader and a beekeeper (just starting the bee keeping!) I studied English Literature and Sociology at Concordia University and now I'm trying to make my start as a professional writer. In writing, I explore the human condition and the marriage between reality and absurdity. Homeward is my first collaborative project, and my first project for youth
