Top Cow is taking their new 128-page graphic novel to Kickstarter. Golgotha is the story of man's first mission to colonize another planet… except when members of the mission wake up from cryosleep they discover that technology continued to advance in their absence and man's second mission to the planet had already beaten them there. The find that they are relics of the past on a planet that was supposed to be their new home. That is one of the most pure science fiction concepts that I've heard of in years. The new project comes from Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill, Yuki Saeki and Bryan Valenza. The book comes with a cover by comic legend Joe Jusko.
The colony has secrets and sins, and both a group of the past and the citizens of the future will atone for the flaws of humanity as the truth of what lies on this world promises to change mankind forever.
The Golgotha project has been chosen as "Project We Love" by the Kickstarter team. They are close to a third of their goal in just two days.

And as a note of full disclosure, I do at times write for Top Cow, but I have nothing to do with the above project.
