Who is Afroella?
Afroella #1 & 2 Covers
Afroella is the new kick-ass Glyph Award nominated comic book series from writer Gemma Bedeau and artist Lee Fenton-Wilkinson who together form the dynamic duo Kromatron Comics. Taking inspiration from our joint love of all things 60s sci-fi, rocket ships and giant monsters sprinkled in with an appreciation for Blaxploitation and cheeky pop culture references, Afroella offers a fresh updated take on the space opera genre.
Agent 36-24-36 codename AFROELLA alongside her sidekick and best friend D.I.V.A [Digital Interactive Virtual Assistant] travels the galaxy in the STARCRAFT FIERCE, righting wrongs, battling robots and mashing monsters.
Afroella battles the sinister multi-tentacle Crakenhol monster.
Who are Kromatron Comics?
Having met through our work within film design (Gemma: Costume Design, Lee: Production Design) , we fast became friends and have since worked together on a multitude of films, commercials and music videos.
Kromatron Comics at Bristol Comic Expo and London Super Comic Con.
Before embarking on a completed comic, we headed to Bristol International Comic Expo on our first official outing as Kromatron Comics. Armed with posters and concept art for several ideas, we presented what we had to the comic book fans. The response was overwhelmingly positive and spurred us on to pursue completing Afroella and so began the tricky bit...creating the comic!
Digital inks, colours and lettering stages.
After many months of development Afroella issue #1 was ready to launch at Leeds Thoughtbubble Festival, a fantastic convention in northern England [and Gemmas hometown].
How can I help?
In order to complete issues 2-4 of Afroella, we're looking for £3000. This will cover most of the printing and postage involved and ensure we deliver the highest quality product to you.
What's in it for me?
For your contribution we have a number of fantastic rewards on offer. From the comic itself, exclusive prints, posters and digital content all the way up to replica props and the chance to have your own comic illustrated. Should you have a wild idea for a reward but it's not listed, let us know. If we like it, we'll add it to the list of rewards.
We couldn't have gotten this far without the fans of Afroella and whether you can give just a little or a lot, your support is massively appreciated.
