The Day and The Hour has completed the Editing Phase of its development and has moved into the Art and Mechanicals phase of production, as Percussion Publishing prepares for a December release of the epic tale of Man vs a Mad God!
In preparation for working with our chosen Artist, Jessica Jaffe, we put together a brief to help her visualize the story. Here are some excerpts from that brief.
So what is the story about?
The Day and The Hour
The year 2021 is a year of crisis. In the midst of the Times Square New Year’s celebrations, an act of domestic terrorism kills hundreds. Soon thereafter, a political leader is assassinated. Tel Aviv becomes ground zero for a dirty bomb detonated by an Islamic radical group. The world stands poised for Armageddon.
YORDON ANTROPOS, of the Mount Athos monasteries, appears on the scene manifesting Godly powers, performing miracles and inspiring a unification movement across all of Islam that threatens control of Middle Eastern oil and creates a shift in the global balance of power.
A revisionist priest of the Chicago Archdiocese, THOMAS PRISCIOTTI, is recruited by the Vatican to join a task force of military, political and religious leaders with the mission of thwarting Yordon’s plans. As the Christ-like madman grows in power and influence, Thomas’ faith and fealty are increasingly challenged. Only by reconciling his doubts and convictions will he be able to use a weapon long kept secret by the Vatican – a weapon that could save the world from this powerful self-professed Messiah.
