In order to stop an intergalactic catastrophe, a team of unlikely heroes must travel across the universe and track down a dangerous magical item that has once again come into existence.

The Acryden- a dangerous magical item- has once again come into existence. Nikura- a rooted yet headstrong princess- decides to be the first to obtain the artifact and protect her treasure-hunting brother from its evil power. Armed with only her stubbornness and a shape-shifting dragon, she sets out on a journey across the galaxy in search of the ancient artifact. When the Acryden’s powers are accidentally unleashed, the ancient magic proves more powerful than anyone could have imagined, and the destinies of those involved are about to change forever!

The Acryden was created in 2001 by Stacy Hummel and Art Schiskey. It is a serialized “Manga Styled” Graphic Novel.

Q. Who is the main character of the story?

A. While some characters are more prominent than others, we do not have just one main character. We like to have polls going to see which characters are fan favorites- This helps with making posters, so vote away!

A. That’s simple! There isn’t one. I really don’t write stories with only one main character. As you read on and get further into the story you’ll notice that the spotlight shifts between different people. This helps keeps the story fresh and the ideas rolling in.
