NEW GRAPHIC NOVEL COMING IN 2018!
The RFA team joins forces once again to tell the dramatic historical account of the life of Frederick Douglass in the graphic novel epic THE NORTH STAR: THE EMANCIPATION OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS!
The North Star: The Emancipation of Frederick Douglass is a dramatic retelling of three pivotal moments in the life of Frederick Douglass. The project published through Terminus Media in Atlanta, GA has launched a Kickstarter campaign for funding its production.
The North Star graphic novel will be adapted from memoir the Life and Times of Frederick Douglass by Barron Robert Bell, Ph.D. best known for Radio Free Amerika: Season 1. The other members of the team include Koi Turnbull, comic book artist for Michael Turner’s Fathom and various DC and Marvel comics titles from Batman to Black Panther; and editor, Robert Jeffrey II creator/writer of the Glyph comics award nominated Route 3 published by Terminus Media LLC.
Bell and his team plan on marketing directly to schools, libraries, and community organizations. "We also hope to encourage our Kickstarter patrons to ‘pay it forward’ by purchasing books and giving them away to their young family members and kids in the community.” He added.
The North Star Kickstarter campaign will run from February 6 to March 23rd, 2018. The official book published by Terminus Media will be released in Fall 2018. We need all the help we can get to finish this project so please consider becoming a backer. Go to:
