Galaxy Magnolia Book 1 page 2 OFFICIAL by Axolotl-mafia 


www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEdC4P… - Music   

If you have been holding off to read Galaxy Magnolia because you wanted to see it visually as a graphic novel, here you go, and hope the wait wasn't too long =).


:star: Book 1 Synopsis :star:Galaxy Magnolia is the story of a Tethican Alien named Sinsen Ruga with pyro destructive tendencies who is just trying to fit into Wormwood Academy Deep Space without resorting to the impulse to burn everything down. Aggressive, hostile and not to mention the only Tethican in W.A, he has a difficult time with other students, often getting into fights or losing the respect of his peers because of what he is. Nim Piper Fletes is a nerdy Frankenstein and fossil obsessed human girl who is also attending Wormwood and facing the same plight of betrayal and outcast from her peers simply because she is unable to fit in. This is their story and how they must learn to fit into the high demands of W.A, save what remains of lost Earth and at the same time without losing themselves in the process....


This is the official launch of my Galaxy Magnolia Graphic Novel Project. Happy 237th Birthday America. I decided to upload the very first official page of Galaxy Magnolia Book 1 today for several reasons; I thought it would be a great day to hallmark the very fact that I have the freedom to express what I want and create an epic visual story. Another reason is because it will hail as a time marker, I can keep better track this way of the progression of this first book. I’m so excited to announce that I will be doing my best to upload Galaxy Magnolia graphic pages as often as I can for each month. There’s no going back at this point, only moving forward =). Each page takes a huge amount of energy to complete because I fully render backgrounds and carefully plan without the use of storyboarding, basing the storyflow from the books I have written. My heart is in this.

:heart: I dedicate this book to several important inspirational figureheads in my life –To the Iron Giant, who taught me that I am Super Man, and to Hogarth Hughes, because you inspired me that no matter how small I am, there’s a giant robot out there waiting for me, and to my husband Alex who has given me the courage to never give up. Also to my Galaxy Magnolia readers who took the time to read the scripts, have stuck with me this long and for moving me in ways that helped me to discover completely new things about myself. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. :heart:

May you find inspiration and joy in this story. Thank you for taking the time to view it, remark or fav it. Please spread the news about Galaxy Magnolia, I would be entirely grateful to you.

People who have read the scripts know what is going on here in this scene, but for anyone who has questions, hopefully it will make sense soon.
These are the first three books of Galaxy Magnolia in script form, written by me. They are broken into two parts each because they are so long, some text from the script may change as I format for the graphic pages



:star: Fair Warning: This Book will contain graphic images of violence, severe language, controversial material, some nudity and adult content. Viewer discretion is advised. :star:

:star: Characters pictured: Sinsen Juno-Pucc, baby Sinsen Ruga, and their mother Sinsen Ora. :star:

For anyone new: This is not an Avatar Fan story and has NOTHING to do with AVATAR. This is an ORIGINAL story series created by me, so if you’re looking for Avatars or Na’Vi, you are looking in the wrong place. They are not Na’Vi, actually they are Smurfs. I’m joking, they’re Tethicans, an original species exclusively created by me and were NEVER Inspired by Avatar. My work pre-dates Avatar, so if you’re still looking for a visually detailed adventure, for that you have come to the right place.

I will be working to get the Galaxy Magnolia website up as soon as I can. It’s in the planning stages at this point. Stay tuned for the next graphic page update =).

Tethican species, the story of Galaxy Magnolia, characters and artwork exclusively belong to me Rheann Kester aka :iconaxolotl-mafia:

Well thank you very much! =D I'll be publishing my comic to paperback in a couple of years, but currently it's available online for free - axolotl-mafia.deviantart.com/g…

I'm on hiatus from the comic for a little while because I had a baby via C-section in July. I'll be posting comic pages again very soon =).

Saw the newest page pop up and have never seen this before so I'll definitely be reading it. It looks so interesting! Your drawing style is amazing, and I absolutely love the design of the Tethican species! Those ears and sharp teeth!:heart: 

You're very creative and talented! and I've only see 2 pages of his! Can't wait to read more!


PS. Anyone that thinks this looks like Avatar clearly has no imagination. It's obvious that these are not Na'Vi from every single detail of them, an it's a complete insult to say that they are.

So the books were "just" scripts? 
Wow.... The books kept me away from the world for a couple of days, and now you're making a graphic novel... Great luck and thanks for the ride so far! :D I can't wait to see more.

I tend to be a lurker on your DA page, although I look forward to each new piece you post. Seeing new artwork from you, particularly for your wonderful Galaxy Magnolia story, gives a happy boost to my day.

I read all of Book 1, but haven't (yet) had the time to sit down and read the rest of the scripts you've posted so far. (Funny how kids can eat up so much time, but they are absolutely worth it. :D) Because of that, I'm not sure if I really count as a hardcore fan.

But (!!) Even if I don't qualify as a "hardcore" fan, I am still a fan of your work, which means I had to post in here to say how much I love both of these graphic novel pages. They are full of action and emotion. But, at the same time, they are just beautiful. Your story and your universe and characters are wonderful in script form. But it is obvious this is how they were meant to be shown to the world. In graphic novel form, the story and characters just sing off the page. It's absolute perfection.

I read a few of your recent journals regarding some of the issues you've had. I know it's much easier for me to say this than for you (or any artist!) to do it, but I hope you won't let any of it discourage you too much. I think it is obvious you have put your heart and soul into this story and these characters. Beautiful artwork like this doesn't happen without the creator putting a lot of herself into it. This is such a wonderfully epic story. It deserves to be told, and, of course, you are the ONLY one who can do that!

I wish you much luck for continued popularity and success ... and I'm eagerly looking forward to new pages. (And to the time to sit down and read the rest of this amazing story, too! I need a magical egg timer or something that can stop time or bend it or ... something! LOL)

I'm so sorry to reply late to this, I've been working on page 3 =). Thank you so kindly for your thoughtful words. Thank you for taking the time to share them with me, that means a lot and I'm so glad that you're tuning into the comic =D. Thank you also for taking the time to read the first book. I understand about finding time to read the others, I have a little one my self ;).

I'm glad that you are enjoying the graphic novel and I'll continue to work on it as often as I can. Nope, I feel better if I can rant a bit and get what is bothering off my chest, but I try very hard not to let things get me down. I've come too far with this project to stop working on it =D. Thank you for also caring for the work I put into the pages. I am trying very hard to make the pages interesting and colorful and it means all the more to me when people notice the work effort, so thank you very much :heart:

Thank you again so much :aww:
