Live-Action Graphic Novel: "The Intergalactic Nemesis"
The year is 1933. Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez, and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott face the most serious threat Earth has ever known: an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon. This period sci-fi/horror/suspense/ comedy/romance is presented for all ages and in a fresh new format. As three actors, one Foley artist, and a keyboardist perform live voices, sound effects, and music, more than 1,000 hand-drawn, full-color, high-resolution, mind-blowing comic book images blast from the screen. The Intergalactic Nemesis is a hilarious, uplifting adventure of heroes-by-circumstance overcoming impossible odds.
The show’s includes multi-disciplinary artist and former Vermont resident Jason Phelps. Before moving to Austin, Texas, Jason and his family lived in Charlotte where he spent five years as a class teacher at the Lake Champlain Waldorf School. He directed several productions at the middle school and high school level, and was the director of the school’s summer theater camps and afterschool programs.
