ChampionOfTheGalaxy.com is a blog I post to every Friday with an illustrated story from the life of Nate. This will be a twelve-year project. I have over 600 ideas, but they take time to write down and get right. I cover Nate’s life from his childhood, through his rough adolescence, and well into old age.
Nate has lived for centuries and seen many strange things. He’s seen worlds of fluorescent, wind-carved stone. He’s met beings made of swirling flame. He’s fought an organization of murderous, time-traveling criminals only to live long enough to become one of its founders. More than once he has lived through great ruptures in time as history changed all around him. More than once he has been told these things were all in his mind. Nate has lived many lives. He has been a human, an eagle, a tiger, a dinosaur, and more. Able to reincarnate in a new body when killed, Nate is an eternal pattern – a ripple through time and space, always searching for the next fascinating place and the next adventure. At heart he is an explorer, but when confronted by evil he cannot help to fight. Champion Of The Galaxy is an account of Nate’s life from his origin onward. It is a story of friendships lost and gained. It is a story of individuality versus conformity. It is a story of pride and humility. It is the story of how a typical young boy grew up to become a cosmic hero.
After 636 weeks, who knows? I very well might keep Nate going.
