Financed by fans, this huge graphic novel is the coming-of-age story of a teenage girl. Set in a unique and original world filled with both angels and robots, her story is a page-turning techno-epic that recounts the clash between self-conscious robots and a million different species of angels. While pure cinematic fantasy, the story anticipates the real issue of whether machines can have souls and will wow graphic novel fans in search of new heroes and new worlds. This spectacular, oversized, lusciously printed 464-page graphic novel combines the two worlds of high-technology and deep spirituality. The book was financed by the robust fans of a successful Kickstarter campaign.
Wired magazine cofounder Kevin Kelly joins screenwriter Casey McCabe and comic book veteran Steve Masseroni to lead this project. The rest of the 20-person team was assembled from writers and artists drawn from Pixar and Lucasfilm, as well as new rising talent from the comics world.

Editorial Reviews

'The Silver Cord is amazing. I am astonished and really, really impressed. I love it. And I've read every comic on the planet since I was a kid.' - James Altucher, Bestselling Author'The Silver Cord is an astonishing book at every level; the story, the graphics, and the production. Kevin Kelly's creation of a new vision of the realms of angels, humans and their intersection is truly original and even grabbed a hard core atheist like me. These are not angels like any we have known in our biblical fairy tales both in substance and form. And what they want from us forced me to appreciate my life anew. Nearly every panel is beautiful and merits focused attention. Some are spectacular including the amazing foldout. The physical production of the book is at the same level as the content. The volume is massive but feels wonderful to hold and slowly peruse. I can't wait for volume 3.' - Peter Schwartz, FuturistGreat stuff guys!... It looks fantastic."- Ralph Winter, Film Producer,Star Trek III, X-Men, X2, The Wolverine"Really enjoying the Silver Cord. Gorgeous art. Challenging ideas about the origin of consciousness and the relationships between dimensions: the bi-directional tunnel of light. Compelling story. Local SF color. An engaging protagonist. Powerful reminiscence about my own near-death experience. Groundbreaking direct author/artist support. Can't put Silver Cord down!?"- Alan Greene, MD, Clinical Professor, Stanford University"The Silver Cord is an enjoyable and thought-provoking graphic novel about a war between humans, angels, and robots with human-like intelligence. I've never read anything like it before... "- Mark Frauenfelder, BOING BOING" Amazing art and story... ."- Irv Klauschus, The JESUS FILM project "
