Review Fix: What are your long-term goals for your work?
Ellis: My long-term goals are to make my whole comic book universe and then make films and shows for my comic book universe because Iâ€™m a filmmaker as well and then just keep repeating the process and keep making books like Iâ€™m trying to be literally bigger than Marvel and DC no shade to them.
Review Fix: Why should someone support this Kickstarter?
Ellis: I think they should support this kickstarter because I think people really want something new something fresh like literally like we been being fed recyclables and like a lot of other comics are cool but like you know they still follow this core pattern of like you know how superheroes are made you know.
Review Fix: Why should someone support your work?
Ellis: I think they should support my work because we are the future like literally we are the future like when they look at prophecy comics, they should see thatâ€™s the third out of the big two even though we are Indie right now. I feel like we are going to change a lot. I want to be able to pay the creators for their creations and do right, I wanna do right by people thatâ€™s it thatâ€™s why they should support us.
Review Fix: Anything else youâ€™d like to add?
Ellis: I will say is please give us a chance. if this Kickstarter donâ€™t work out we are going to do another one but itâ€™s going to be a more feasible goal so yeah
Review Fix: Whatâ€™s next?
Ellis: What next? If we get this goal in time. Issue 1, issue 2 , issue three , issue four and then new stories. I have new stories but I canâ€™t do this without the people pushing me up.
