Catching A Solar Flare

James Haick writes,

Author Malcolm Gladwell says that it takes roughly ten thousand hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field. I've been reading and collecting comics since I was about 8 years old. The comic industry has entranced and enamored me for most of my life.  It wasn't until I read that quote 3 years ago at age 32 that I made my decision to try and break into writing comic books.  I'm am blessed to have a successful career in the financial world, but my true dream is to write and create comics. My dream has finally become a reality with help from some very talented individuals named Branco Jovanovic, Song Ye, and Michael Lagace. The comic we created is called Solar Flare and we are looking to find a publisher to help bring this story to the masses.

This series is about a group of people brought together after the world's worst Solar Flare disaster, which leaves everyone with little to no electronics (similar to an electric magnetic pulse). The solar flare disaster acts as a backdrop for a story that highlights the human enigma via complex characters that blur the lines between right and wrong. The primary goal is for the group of main characters (8) to travel safely (in a world with no functioning modern transportation) from Florida to Tennessee to deliver valuable information to the government that will help save millions of lives. The story highlights their difficult journey through a now chaotic analog world.  .

Solar Flare #1 - FINISHED PAGE 1

The ongoing series will be separated into story arcs all named after cities that they are either in or to which they are traveling. The first arc will be called Fort Myers, the second Sarasota, the third Winter Park, etc.. Many events occur throughout their journey that not only dramatically change their lives, but the lives of millions of people as well.

If you are interested in hearing more or would like to help publish our series, please contact me, James Haick, at jameshaick@gmail.com .
