We are preparing for the next level in media publishing in June 2016 when we intend to launch several new projects – “Just as I Am” animated short featuring the stars of the Zephaniah Comics universe among others and our first novel – “The Great Mutation.” Both of these will have crowd-funding options. In preparation for those events as well as for our current projects, we will now be accepting PayPal donations (in any amount) to further our mission to create media publications to Inspire, Educate and Entertain the world. We remain focused on our core goals: Relationship, Regeneration and Transformation.
Abandoned by his mother on a rainy Arcadia City night, Zephaniah has never met his parents. Sonata rescues him, earning Snare's enmity, and places him in an Abishwan orphanage. Zephaniah is adopted by two Star Force members - Kanis, an Onalogian
and Mira, a Terran. Zephaniah learns the culture of both worlds - Onalog and Earth - while experiencing all of Abishua's wonders - it is the seat of government for the Gedaliah Confederation. Unlike on Earth, Zephaniah is free to use his powers
without needing a secret identity.
Rebeka is a Special Agent for the Universal Guardian Corps. She's completed several missions for the Corps including exchanging two baby boys from Earth to Abishua. The Corps send Rebeka on missions where her unique Bardic abilities excel those of either a Galactic Knight or a Universal Guardian.
Like Zephaniah, Liana was abandoned at birth. They grew up in the same orphanage. Unlike Zephaniah, Liana was not adopted. Hebron is one of the most technologically advanced cities in the entire Gedaliah Confederation. Unfortunately, sin is universal. The orphanage staff mistreated the children. Liana, eventually, runs away. She currently lives in Absalom, a smaller nearby city.
Cassandra is Zephaniah’s tutor in the city of Hebron on the planet Abishua. Her past deed while safeguarding him have earned her the authority of being a Special Agent for the Star Force Organization. This grants her clearance into most Star Force facilities throughout the Gedaliah Confederation. Her Special Agent status is a great help when she has to deal with enemies from her homeworld of Echanis III. Cassandra is unique among androids; she is able to regain power from solar energy. It was because of this ability that she had to leave her homeworld. Echanis III is an energy starved world and its scientists actively seek out androids and robots with the ability to naturally draw power from the environment. If Echanis III’s scientists ever catch up with Cassandra, they will certainly attempt to dissect her to find out she is able to absorb solar energy. Cassandra normally comes into conflict with Star Force enemies as well as bounty hunters from Echanis III.
What's harder than being a hero? Being the son of a famous one. This is Gideon's plight. His father, Galead, has been Rakgar's premiere hero for decades. Everyone believes that Gideon should follow in his father's footsteps. Everyone that is, but Gideon. Yes, he does feel both loyalty and love for his homeworld but the Gedaliah Confederation is huge and adventure calls to his heart. Gideon constantly speaks of Rakgarian Supremacy while trying to upstage Zephaniah at every turn.

Social Media is an integral part of business in the modern age. Customers want to interact with people and not faceless corporations. I am still working on accepting this fact and to learn the personalities of the various social media apps available today.
LinkedIn – I still believe that this one has potential. It first needs to figure out its purpose and do that to perfection. From my experience, LinkedIn works best for people who are working in the corporate environment and not so much for the self-employed. I still favor sites like “FlexJobs” for finding new clients.
Facebook – Of the social media sites, this is my least favorite. Facebook has taken casual games to new heights by allowing players to share accomplishments with their Facebook family. I typically use this site to post finished artistic pieces in Reality 4.1.
Twitter – I use this app more than any of the others because I can share book quotes directly from my Kindle Fire. Since “live tweeting” is becoming a thing with certain TV shows like “The Flash,” I will be using Twitter even more in the future. Twitter fits my personality better than any of the rest. When I can create a witty one liner, it fits within Twitter’s character limit.
Instagram – This app allows you to upload photos/images to the cloud using your phone. Since most of my images I make using my computer, using this media takes a lot of effort. I have to transfer the image to my phone and then upload it. I typically upload my work directly from my computer. I am still figuring out how this fits in with my media plan. I don’t go out often enough and take pictures to upload to Instagram.
