Announcing Time Skippers
After over four years of work, my very first manga is just about ready for release.
In high school I started writing a manga called Time Skippers. It follows a boy named Sugaku, who must discover his inner element to enter a yearly tournament, where the victor gets a match against Ao, the evil king, for the crown.
It started as a complete parody of manga/anime, and still is to some extent, but after the first arc it evolves into its own entity. There are eight dojos and Sugaku has a pet hamster, which are clearly from Pokemon. When characters power up, their hair slightly grows, which you can figure out where that is from.
After several rewrites, I’ve decided to make Time Skippers a trilogy, taking place over three years. I am about halfway done actually writing the story, but I have a clear roadmap in my head, especially the ending.
The first issue is complete and ready to go, I am just finalizing release details. The artist is working on several other projects, so I am planning on starting a Patreon to see if I can raise enough money to pay her to exclusively work on Time Skippers.
I would love to turn this into an anime someday, even if a small independence one that ends up costing more money than it earns. It’s a project of mine that I’m very passionate of, and can’t wait to share with everybody.
If you’ll be at Sakura-Con, be on the lookout for fellow monkey Treezy504 giving out QR codes to access the first issue, as well as a few printed copies. And for the actual release of Time Skippers, which is soon, keep it here at Junkie Monkeys!
