The Tale of the First World at the Centre of the Universe

The Goal of the Project 

by Larry Holder

"Of Time and Space" is a project of passion. It started as a simple story, first conceived as an animated movie project roughly 18 years ago, it slowly morphed into a novelized format. When it was clear that written word was not enough to represent the full splender of the world in my head, I decided to rewrite it as a comic book. It was the best of both worlds, the written word paired with the visual language of art, in a medium I love. 

There is a current wave of creative and innovative independently funded comics finding their market from those disenfranchised by the mainstream direction of comics. This book aims to resonate with those looking for more classic tales of science fiction and fantasy. 

It is my goal to find and hire artistic talent to visualize this dream to the full extent and produce a book that will expand to many issues and a grand tale of adventure spanning thousands of years in the story.

Stay Tuned for Updates.

First Update

Character Design : Onixia (On-Ah-Ze-Ah)

Artist David Coates lends me his talent to bring to life the main character of the first chapter of OTAS (The Lunar Rise)

Conception of Onixia

Onixia came into the story in around 2008 when I decided the backstory to the first tale, to what will now be Chapter 2, was getting too big and deserved it's own tale. He was developed from a Homin(human) character, Ebalis, that when powered up grew wings, and turned into a new race I developed called the "Angelous".

Second Update

Poster Design: The Floating Isles of the Angelous

Through the magic of artist Daswhox, the home of Onixia and the Angelous can be seen in full conceptual beauty. I knew the second I saw Daswhox's work, it needed to be part of this project somehow. So I present to you the first poster design. 

Third Update

Poster Design: The Dragi

To bring this creation alive artist André Boulard, breaths the magic into the extremely important serpentine race known as the "Dragi". These creatures play a huge part in Chapter 1: The Lunar Rise. I couldn't be more happy with this piece and how he brought my idea to life in the way I always wanted them to look.

Fourth Update

Character Design: The First Creature 

Character Design: The Nocturne (Knock-Turn)

The villains of Of Time And Space are a bit different due to their origin, which will be explained in the first few pages of the book. The first of the bunch is a massive grotesque monster that towers all the creatures of the time and brings untold levels of death and carnage. These two designs done wonderfully by Kelly Wass, also known as Hawk Art.  He shows the Lovecraftian creatures in all  their slimy glory. 

Fifth Update

Character Design: Selene (C-El'Lean)

Another master work from André Boulard, this time for a character design. Selene is a minor character in The Lunar Rise, but plays a larger role later in the grand story that is Of Time And Space. I must say this design is a personal favorite of mine.
