The Youngster is a graphic novel series created and written by myself. The first season was illustrated by William Ray. The story follows the aftermath of the most devastating event in the world’s history, The Great Catastrophe. Centuries later, the year is Post Catastrophe 1752. The epicenter of this event once known as the United States of America, is now the Republic of Arcadia. The world has recovered to look as it once was, but now science and witchcraft have become one and the same. The tales of The Youngster will lead seven students to come together in a serious of supernatural events to prevent a 2nd Great Catastrophe from taking place.
The Youngster will have a series of short promotional videos under the project name, “Days Before Tomorrow”, which was shot in Houston, Texas and New York City. Days Before Tomorrow will act as a prequel to the series’ events and will focus on the character Jennifer Hofer, portrayed by Hailey Orman, in particular. The Complete First Season of the graphic novel will be available Spring 13′ and will include 22 chapters, character bios, and a hard cover. The pilot run is currently available on iTunes, and includes the first 3 episodes.
