Comic book publisher, Evoluzione Publishing, has launched the Kickstarter for the third installment of their critically acclaimed series, Mine To Avenge: The Book of Layla #3. The series combines elements of Afrofuturism, Cyberpunk, and Horror in a century-spanning sci-fi action-adventure, and can be pre-ordered on Kickstarter.
The series tells the story of the Retribution Cabal, an organization created to keep the descendants of “America’s original sin” (slavery) safe from the creatures that go bump in the night. Starting in the 1830’s French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana, and ending in the far-flung future of the 2100s, for fans of such films as Blade, Underworld, Get Out, and Blade Runner, this is the perfect series for lovers of all things sci-fi and horror.
“I’m completely enthralled by Jeffery’s writing and the way he crafted the story of Mine to Avenge, it’s done with attention and love directed towards the main character Layla, and the world building is done with intention as well as a reverence for both the timelines he explores.”-Ian Yarington, ComicBooked.com
"Illuminati does creative design for monsters and realistic looking characters, he blends in backgrounds and cityscapes with dynamic action scenes and flowing panels." -Comicbooked.com
“The direction of the writing here is so incredibly strong, I feel as if I already understand the how and why of what we are seeing and where it’s going to lead us.”-ReadingWithAFlightRing.com
“This series mashes elements of historical fiction, social commentary, and over the top action into a great blend of storytelling,” writer/ creator Robert Jeffrey II (DC Comic’s 2017 New Talent Workshop Graduate, Route 3, RET: CON) said.
“If you’re looking for an indie series which bucks against the norm when it comes to comics, definitely check out Mine To Avenge.”
“I like everything about working on the series,” penciller/ inker Matteo Illuminati (Changa: The Jade Obelisk, Harpies: Arcadia) said. “Especially in this 3rd issue, I love to draw the high number of different situations, frenetic action scenes, deep dialogue, and thrilling moments. All of these with futuristic cities, temples and even a medieval Romanian battlefield as a background.”
“There are so many cool aspects of Mine to Avenge that the readers will enjoy,” Loris Ravina (Harpies: Arcadia, RET: CON) “There is all the mystery beyond the Cabal and LaLauries' past, there's the big adventure, the kick-ass action, and all those well written characters...But - maybe - I'd say the atmosphere. Robert wrote this dark gritty futuristic story, and he did it great. The same did Matteo with his drawings. I mean, I love all that sci-fi cyperpunk mood! And you all find it with a dusting of fantasy and mythology on it.”
