DEEP THEORY STUDIOS!
DEEP THEORY ISSUE #1 FULLY FUNDED on
Deep Theory is a comic book anthology about questions best left unanswered. It is a cross between myths with a twist and the mysteries of the universe that humanity will never be able to solve. Inspired by life’s deepest philosophical questions, pre-existing notions and mysterious phenomena, Deep Theory explores our take on what things REALLY could mean and for what purpose strange occurrences serve.
Each issue covers different topics (such as sleep paralysis, time travel, the purpose of love, etc.) and will present different characters and stories while remaining cohesive in its theme of “questions best left unanswered.” If you like Twilight Zone, Black Mirror, and Ice Cream Man the comic book series then this is the comic book for you. The entire series is still being written but the first issue is in production. We’re hoping for its release in early November via Kickstarter
Deep Theory #1: Ardipithecus kicks off 5 million years ago during the Pliocene Era. Consho, an ape, just wants to be accepted by his shrewdness. While all the other apes are fitting in, bonding over sweet honeycomb and finding mates, Consho is an outcast who tries to be the best ape he can be but his colleagues can’t stand him! As a result of not being accepted, he longs to find purpose in his existence. One day, after being chased deep into the jungle by his nemesis, a visitor arrives and the world as he once knew it would never be the same. Sykra, an extraterrestrial from another planet, seems to grow a fondness for Consho because he’s not like the other apes. They become friends. Perhaps, more than friends. But there’s something she’s not telling him… Both Consho and his nemesis consume Sykra’s blood in two different ways, revealing a side to them they never knew existed. Could Consho find the answers he’s been searching for before his nemesis beats him to the punch? Or will he bite off more than he can chew and discover much more than he asks for?
