Financed by fans, this huge graphic novel is the coming-of-age story of a teenage girl. Set in a unique and original world filled with both angels and robots, her story is a page-turning techno-epic that recounts the clash between self-conscious robots and a million different species of angels. While pure cinematic fantasy, the story anticipates the real issue of whether machines can have souls and will wow graphic novel fans in search of new heroes and new worlds. This spectacular, oversized, lusciously printed 464-page graphic novel combines the two worlds of high-technology and deep spirituality. The book was financed by the robust fans of a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Praise for The Silver Cord
“The Silver Cord is an astonishing book at every level; the story, the graphics, and the production. Kevin Kelly’s creation of a new vision of the realms of angels, humans and their intersection is truly original and even grabbed a hard core atheist like me. These are not angels like any we have known in our biblical fairy tales both in substance and form. And what they want from us forced me to appreciate my life anew. Nearly every panel is beautiful and merits focused attention. Some are spectacular including the amazing foldout. The physical production of the book is at the same level as the content. The volume is massive but feels wonderful to hold and slowly peruse. I can’t wait for volume 3.” — Peter Schwartz, Futurist
“I finished the book. Incredible, parts gave me chills. We want more!” — Kyle Coolidge
“I could feel this coming in the MAIL the last few days !!!! This morning received your book The Silver Cord just after reading an email on body magnetics, the astral, sleep and the silver cord. Love the synchronicity! I am going to take my time to read this as it is a treasure. The first few pages I’m already HOOKED. It is BRILLIANT.” — Mary Spicer
“… I received my copy a couple days ago and finished the book in one day. It’s amazing and impressive! The book is huge, much larger than I expected, and the quality is fabulous. The pages feel great to the touch and the colors beautiful. I won’t provide any spoilers but the story does not disappoint! I’m proud to have helped finance this project and I’ll be spending the word and suggest everyone I know pick up a copy of The Silver Cord!” — Lane G. Weinman
“Our Silver Cord book arrived yesterday and as I tucked my 12 year old into bed at 9:30 pm he had just started reading it. I told him he could read a little bit longer but then to please turn out the light and go to sleep. I woke up at 1:30 am. I was shocked to find my son STILL reading The Silver Cord and with a huge happy tired smile he said, “I’m almost done, Mom!” LOL This was the first time he’s ever stayed up that late….reading! The book is a work of art, amazing! Well done!” — Claudia Nonnenmacher Kornaros
“I held it in my hands and understood that your Vision created a real work of art which superseded all my expectations. I feel honored to have contributed a small bit towards its creation.” — Carly Ulrich
“Finally received my Silver Cord hardcover book! This is one of the best graphic representations of the astral plane I’ve ever seen. Every page made me stop and appreciate each illustration for a while and I just couldn’t stop reading, I HAD to see what happened in the next page. It totally got me hooked. I think we should start talking about making a Silver Cord feature film…” — Erick Gonzalez
