TAGLINE: Fight Evil with your own astrological talents: The Astro Heroes Save the World!
PLOTLINE: NEFOS, the Distorter, plots to prolong a lunar eclipse and gain control over the 12 orphans living at Quest Camp. The orphans are each born under a different star sign. Through his dark, unnatural machinations he intends to distort the qualities of each star sign and trap each kid and every member of their astro tribe in their own nightmare. ZALINDA, the Harmonizer fights against him and bets NEFOS that she will win the kids to her side and redeem all members of their tribe. Nefos and Zalinda battle out their relationship as each of the orphans become their unique Astro Hero.
SUMMARY: Tree of Keys is a transmedia project. Currently issue 1, Threshold of Fire, is available and the series is in pre-development. Future plans are for a graphic novel series, a 12 episode web series, and an animated film.
Although there are many iconic Super Heroes no one has ever created a Super Hero specifically based on individual astrological signs. Additionally, equal audiences for both girls and boys are making headway in the Super Hero Universe but currently this genre appeals mostly to guys; astrology has traditionally appealed to girls. The Astro Heroes bridge the gap. Everyone in the world has a star sign! There are 12 Astro Heroes: 6 guys and 6 girls.
AUDIENCE: Young adults, mature adults. Readers do not need to know anything about Astrology nor believe in it. Astrological mythology is the creative magic to hook readers into this story. If the audience says “hey, that’s like me!”…so much the better.
