Modern Polaxis is a paranoid time traveller who keeps his secret journals hidden away in a layer of Augmented Reality.

Can you read the future comics?

You may need a smartphone. Check out my kickstarter to see a comic book paired with an iPhone/iPad app bring to life the secret story of Modern Polaxis, a paranoid time traveller.

Polaxis believes our reality is a projection from another plane in the universe. He thinks if he can find a way to enter in to the projection beam he can reposition himself anywhere on earth in time and space. The projection is known as Intafrag and is patrolled by Intafrag agents. The agents monitor glitches and pursue time travelling fugitives. Polaxis believes he is one of these fugitives. But he can’t quite prove any of this because he was pretty wasted the last time he time travelled.

The project and has already been described by Scott McCloud (author of Understanding Comics) as ‘Another mind bending creation from Sutu, the creator of Nawlz’.

Half the story is written, illustrated and animated. The kickstarter needs your help to complete 20 more pages of illustration, sound and animation.

When peering through your iPhone or iPad, my own AR technology seamlessly maps a hidden world of sound and animation to the printed page. The result is fast and magical. The story is based on true events and has been augmented with a layer of fantasy.

In that sense, reality is truly augmented as fact and fiction are blurred.The story promises to be a satirical commentary about the consequences of our new AR lives. At the moment the project uses an iPhone or an iPad as the lens to see Polaxis’s hidden world. But soon, very soon, we’ll be using things like Google Glass and light weight versions of Oculus Rift to experience comics like Polaxis. This is the first step.
