Issue 7 of the comic series, Yscariot: Sphere of Light, is now available for purchase on Amazon and GooglePlay!

It’s been a long time since the last update. After several delays on the project, the Yscariot comic book series will see its first volume release on January 17th, 2021.
Why January 17th? It is ALPHA DAY! On the same day in 2014, the Alpha comic book was released. This marks an important day of birth for Yscariot when the book was not on released as a product on its first attempt, but it was envisioned to be a comic book as well.
What will make Volume One different from the other comic books previously released? It will be a better value than buying all other books separate. You can also own all previously books at once. In addition, you will get a bonus issue (Issue 6) before it is released to the public, and previous Issues will also be discontinued some time next year. Owning a volume book will continue while newer issues are released in the future.
The release of Issue 6 may occur some time around Mid to Late Spring of next year, but owning Volume One Will definitely provide readers with enough story content to last until the seventh issue is released.
A link to the pre-orders will be available on or around December 30-31st of this year. The Pre-Order will be available to readers for $15, but the regular price may be $20-25 depending on Amazon’s requirements.
Please stay tuned and subscribe to all channels regarding Yscariot for release information!
As announced, Issue 4 was anticipated to be released with a price tag of $1.99. However, Amazon is locking the price of DARK MEMORY at $2.99 due to the new digital conversion rates and the royalty scheme.
It is in deeply frustrating, but in a countermeasure to help future customers save money, I had personally adjusted the price for all books so that customers will still be able to save one dollar for the price of the collection. In addition, the regular price for the first issue, Awakening, will not increase in price. Issues 2 & 3 will continue to have a $1 increase.
It is expected of Amazon to sometimes limit the low value price for books created by independent creators and authors. So, I apologize on their behalf and continuously hope that my supporters, which is hopefully you, will continue to be at my side while I am preparing the next issue.
As for GooglePlay, my sales are quite low on that end, and the GooglePlay reader app is actually a much better app to view on. So, I prefer that any reader who wants to buy my book for a lesser price on a better viewing model, download the book from the GooglePlay Store. The pricing scheme is much better on GooglePlay and sales there may help Amazon lower the price of the first book (which will result in Issue 1’s increase). These are the only solutions I can come up with at this time.
Additionally, Issue 01 is available in SPANISH on GooglePlay! So, if you have any friends who only understand Latin American Spanish, this is your chance to share the story! An Amazon version will come soon.
Once again, I want to thank everyone who shown support and condolences for my family during this time and please keep yourselves and family safe.
It’s here! The fourth issue of Yscariot is finally coming and it’s available for pre-order for the low price of $0.99. That’s NINETY-NINE CENTS! One cent less than a single US dollar! There are many things that can be done with a single dollar. However, owning this book through Amazon or GooglePlay store will allow you to keep this book in your library forever.Continue reading Issue 4: available March 25
As the creator of Yscariot, I hoped to bring the news as soon as I can about all things related to my life’s work. However, the Novel Coronavirus is reportedly causing a shutdown on the city of Shanghai as well as other cities in China. Schools, gyms, and businesses have all shut down. Does it mean more time to work on the story? Not quite, but it brings work home and there is a large amount of time researching solutions to any issue that may arise if I am unable to continue living in China. We are strong, and I believe that China will rise from this issue.
As far as Yscariot itself is concerned, it will be some time when I’ll release new material in a timely fashion. I will release new material, but in a slower capacity than usual, unless there is a lot of [financial] support from a community to help the story become more self-sufficient as my online work hours have been reduced significantly and that means it will be harder to produce work.
The novel-based Issue 04: Dark Memory was originally intended for a Valentine’s Day release and will be tentatively moved to March 4th. New songs (jingles) were also created as filler songs and may be released on a special page in the future for customers.
Chapter 2: Wrath of Royals sales were incredibly low, and that won’t stop its progression, however it does influence at lot of the progression towards a new chapter’s completion. With this, I’ll be creating a prequel to the events of the Yscariot: Awakening verse titled Yscariot: Verse Double Zero.
Although things are quite slow, don’t stop supporting the movement! We need all the help we can get! Thank you!
New things are coming for the Yscariot series!

In the next few hours, customers of Issue 02 will notice a change on the cover of their digital comic books. A temporary cover page was created to replace the traditional cover page that normally embraces the front of the books created by the author-creator of the series. Over five illustrators around the world were chosen create the cover over the span of four months but no submissions were made. In the meantime, the author has quickly substituted a cover that illustrates his concept of what the cover should have looked like.
Although the level of skill in the cover art is much lower than the quality of the actual comic images, it should be noted that this is only a concept and artists all over the world are more than welcomed to contribute a complete and permanent version to replace the substitute. If you are an illustrator interested in contributing cover art, please contact Marcus by clicking here.
Issue #2 of the Yscariot comics is now available on Amazon for the digital Kindle app. For $1.99, the comic is released 3 days before it’s intended date of April 20th. You can purchase the comic on Amazon at the link provided: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QS5JXMM
This news follows the previous post from earlier this morning, when the comic’s core pages were released. A new cover will be made in the future with an update to be announced at a later time. We sincerely hope you enjoy this new addition to the Yscariot story.
Words from the creator of Yscariot:
To keep these works coming faster, we need your support. For most of the the last and past year, I have been the sole source of building the story, but I can’t do it alone. Yscariot is heavily dependent on you, our current and prospect supporters and followers to create the next new superhero for a new age. Whether or not this story or comic is for you, there are always people who may be interested in this story, so please let them know about Project Yscariot! It may be a 20-year old pre-planned project all saved up as notes and data on paper, computer, and even my own mind, but it is still new to the world in its telling. I hope to create an exciting story that has its own life for as long as the world allows it to. Thank you.
