“Astonishing Adventures”
By Chad Blakely
3 issue mini series (with other stories to be told in subsequent series)
The PITCH:
We are surrounded by a world that only children can see; a world of magic, adventures, and monsters. After his daughter is abducted, a father rediscovers this world, with the help of his son and a 7 foot tall teddy bear. Now they race across the universe, attempting to save his daughter and humanity.
The STORY:
Meet Chad Edwards, a father of two and loving husband; for whom on an ordinary day, an extraordinary event
takes place. After his daughter Grace goes missing from his backyard, while playing with her older brother Harrison,
Chad learns about a world he forgot about that exists outside the reality of adults. As children, we fight dragons, play
dress up, and go on intergalactic adventures; protecting the rest of our world from the forces of evil who wish to do us
harm. However, as we grow older and quit believing in fairytales, we lose the ability to see this world around us. After
his daughter is taken by one of these evil forces, Chad regains the ability to see the world for how it really is and goes on
an out of this world adventure across the galaxy with his son, Harrison, and his trusty sidekick, a teddy bear named GoGo.
Grace was taken by the vile Lord Zynismus, an intergalactic villain who wants to invade our world. Zynismus
was created by and gains strength from the negativity and cynicism of the adults of the universe. In order to take over
Earth, Lord Zynismus must corrupt the soul of a “pure and innocent” child, which is his plan for Grace. She knows that
she is loved and will be saved by her brother, an idea that Zynismus must snuff out in order to corrupt Grace’s
innocence.
Chad, Harrison, and Go-Go race across the galaxy to find and rescue Grace; a journey that takes them to an alien
planet that seems like something out of the old west, at first. The dusty, Deadwoodesque town is inhabited by reptilianlike
bikers who have no love for offworld visitors. After a melee in a bar, and some strong arming from the giant teddy
bear Go-Go, the boys find out the location of Lord Z’s fortress. However, the rescue attempt goes south and Chad,
Harrison, and Go-Go are imprisoned by Zynismus.
While awaiting their impending execution; an event that Zynismus knows will be Grace’s breaking point, the
boys are rescued by a mysterious heroine. They soon find out that their rescuer is none other than the kids’ mom,
Alaina. Alaina it turns out is one of the rare adults that never lost the ability to see the world as children do and helps
fight alongside the kids to protect Earth. She happened to be off planet when Chad and Harrison went on their rescue
mission; once she heard of their capture, she knew she had to move into action.
Now the family face off against Lord Zynismus and his droid army, in a battle to save Grace and Earth. Lord Z attempts to kill Chad, but Grace jumps in between him and the death blow, deflecting the shot back at Lord Z and destroying him.  Grace saved the day and her family.

Here is an update for my upcoming book, "The Con Job"!  This time it is a panel featuring my cousin, Brian as a new anchor.  I am happy to say that I am done with principal art on the book, all that is missing now are people who get parts through my Kickstarter funding raising.  It feels pretty good to have 50 pages of finished art "in the can".  Pre-tay pre-tay good....

Here is a step by step process shot for my upcoming OGN "the Con Job".  This is my first time coloring digitally, so I borrowed a technique that Laura Allred told me about.  It involves layers and flat colors and a LOT of luck.  I am pretty happy with the results!
