Written by Corky Arnold and illustrated by Ian Miller, Invasion Nano Sapiens is a sci-fi horror graphic novel project, seeking funding on Indiegogo. The graphic novel is inspired by The Fly with Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis in the sense it’s about a budding love story interrupted by science gone wrong, where Alison is turned into a monster; and the Borg of Star trek, where the Borg nanoprobes like the nanobots in INS probe inside Alison, rebuilding her, guiding her and ultimately controlling her to do whatever they tell her to. With perks starting from $19, you can help bring Invasion Nano Sapiens to life by making your pledge here.
