How far would you push the boundaries of science to save the one you love?
This the question at the heart of Terminal Protocol, an original graphic novel currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.
A near-future science-fiction comic about robotics #technology, artificial intelligence and the limits of the human brain, Terminal Protocol is the story of Dr. Katherine Talton and Dr. Dustin Jessup. Katherine and Dustin are the founders of Future Sight, the groundbreaking company that has changed the face of robotics for a quarter-century. The two are also husband and wife, and they’ve lived a good life as scientific explorers of the unknown.
However, when Dustin learns that he’s been diagnosed with a terminal illness, it seems that their time together is coming to an end. Unable to accept the limits of medical science, Katherine throws herself into exploring the boundaries of robotics and artificial intelligence to try and find a way to save her husband. But as the end draws near for Dustin, Katherine must question how far she’s willing to go, and what she’s willing to do to the one person she truly loves.
