November 21, 2019 GMT

ATLANTA - November 21, 2019 - ( Newswire.com )

Moving Ink Media, the creative company behind the award-winning webcomic Kamikaze, launched a Kickstarter on Nov. 11 to fund their animated pilot entitled Kamikaze: Embrace the Fire based on their main character Markesha Nin. Moving Ink is also publishing the Kamikaze: Short Circuits anthology, with 4 new stories found in the same universe and featuring a diverse roster of incredibly talented guest artists and writers. The month-long campaign has a goal of $27K to fund the completion of both projects and as of this writing is over 40% funded.

Created by husband and wife team Carrie and Alan Tupper, and the talented illustrator/designer Havana Nguyen, Kamikaze is set in a future dystopia where natural resources are scarce and what food remains is controlled by corrupt factions. Markesha is a teenager who lost her mother and is caring for her blind father, making ends meet as a courier. When a routine delivery turns deadly, Markesha finds herself caught between warring factions. Now she’s an agent for the resistance organization that saved her and her secret identity “Kamikaze” becomes a symbol of hope for her people.

The Florida-based animation company Echo Bridge Pictures, led by animation director Esteban Valdez, is bringing the world of Kamikaze to life. The animated pilot will feature the voice talents of Dani Chambers(Black Clover, One Piece) as “Markesha Nin”, Monica Rial(Dragon Ball, gen:Lock,My Hero Academia) as her tech assist “Audrey Dalma” and Johnathan Young, YouTube famous for his genre music covers, as Markesha’s enemy “Toro Blackthorne”.

The Kamikaze:Short Circuits graphic novel anthology will feature a cadre of talented writers and artists including: Robert K. Jeffrey ( Green Lantern/DC Comics), Sceritz ( Scorpio), Dan Jolley (Dr. Strange Marvel; G.I. Joe/Image Comics),Takeia Marie (S imone Visits the Museum), Malissa White from Comics Creators Club and more.
