As Favors And Followers nears its end, the time has come to reveal the next comic: Crossfire! As you can imagine we’ve had more artwork to do than normal to prepare for such an entirely new setting, so this reveal is coming a few weeks later than we would have liked. At long last, things are coming together for the eighth SapphireFoxx comic.
Not only will Crossfire be the first comic set outside of the SapphireFoxx universe, it will be our first story taking place in the sci-fi setting of galactic space! Crossfire will be premiering December third, after the conclusion of the 400th page of Favors and Followers!
“The mercenary crew of the starship Crossfire are no strangers to the mysteries and dangers that exist across the galaxy. From assassinations, to escorts, to diving into the depths of The Great War, there’s almost nothing the crew hasn’t experienced in action. However, a distress call from a small colony world on the fringe of known space will turn out to be a mission no one expected. With sixty-four thousand colonists missing without a trace from the world known as Odyssey, the Crossfire will be pushed to the limit to discover the truth, before they go missing in action themselves.”
In addition to the comic, we’ll have a prequel one-shot animation called Crossfire: Odyssey! Its set three months before the beginning of the comic, and will shed light on what happened to the colonists of Odyssey.
“The human colony of Odyssey was no different from thousands of other planets across the Sol Federation’s vast territory. Prosperous and far from the Front Lines of The Great War, it’s populous enjoyed a placid life on the edge of the galaxy. In late 4011, two young colonists named Marco and Vanessa left the city to go on a romantic hike in the newly terraformed forests of the Athena region. Little did the couple know that they would stumble upon in the alien wilderness.”
Lastly, we’ll be posting some world-building lore and character bios leading up to the premiere of the comic. To summarize everything that’s coming in the next few weeks:
- Crossfire Crew Profiles and Timeline: November 21 to November 30
- Crossfire comic premiere: December 3
- Crossfire: Odyssey animation release: December 7
I hope you’re as excited for the new series as we are! Although you might be wondering how such a story would have gender transformations in it, I assure you they will be there and there will be plenty of transformations. I won’t spoil the details yet, but you can expect it in the prequel animation. With such a new story environment, it’ll be an unique and new way to have more gender transformations.
