About the Fundraiser

My name is Sharan Kumar and I am the creator and author of a new comic series called Space Junkies. I have designed this series to not only be entertaining for people of all ages, but to also reflect real struggles and real solutions to problems. Space Junkies demonstrates that the universe is chaotic and that the problems of greed, power, survival and other shortcomings exist, but can be overcome through teamwork and various virtues. Of course, such ideas are presented in a comical manner using characters that appeal to those that are both young of age and young at heart.

Space Junkies currently reaches 500,000 subscribers per week across India though The Hindu

Space Junkies comics are available at Comixology.

 As the creator of Space Junkies, I personally believe we can influence future outcomes through those things we can imagine. I’ve always dreamt of travelling in space among the stars and galaxies while participating in endless adventures and Space Junkies embodies this desire that is commonly held by others. 

I believe such experiences can be shared with millions of adventure seekers through the appealing antics of Space Junkies via animation and that is my current goal. 

The digital version of Chapter One - "Space Junkies : Hotels on the Moon" - is complete and the next step is to get the saga animated. The funds of this campaign will be used towards developing a 20-Minute Animation Storyboard. The software being used for the animation includes Toon Boom Harmony
