Thank you for joining me on this journey through your support of this work. This story represents my personal journey from a material-minded being to that which is much closer now to Earth-warrior.
In 2004, the original Issue Zero was debuted at Comic Con. Copies of Issue Zero still exist but are currently in "the valut". This new color comic, Raver J "Save the Rave" Issue 001, expands on the original story presented in issue zero and also serves as a character guide and visual backstory to the literary novel about Raver J called, Rave: Mythoprehenia (came out in 2019) and it's sequel, Rave: Mythopoetica (coming out in 2022). The two novels plus the pre-quel comic book which is this Issue 001 "Save the Rave" form a trinity offering and Raver J's complete origin story.
This story is more than my fictionalized spiritual journey, this is a testament to all of those who feel the Love. We know that through this culture we can taste, access, or experience lucidly the revered Awe that we are the All and Everything. That through our participation in this culture that everytime we experience the expansion of our indvidual consciousness with the good vibes of our fellow party people, we keep this possibility, this sacred portal, open and for the benefit of all beings.
This story is being told to validate the experience of all those within the global electronic party scene who know they are superheroes and inspire a future legion within our world dance music culture to step into and act upon their innate superpowers, the highest being Love.
Please let me know where you want the proceeds of your purchase going. I present you three options:
1) Sofia - (yes, the name some call our planet and also wisdom) . She is a young girl withint the community I live in down in Costa Rica. Our community is currently fundraising for her as she has cerebral palsy. She is 3 and the photo we have circulating of her is in a Wonder Woman outfit.
2) Red Fawn Fallis - is a Water Protector who we believe was framed at Standing Rock. She has been recently released but can use financial support and knowing it is coming from the love of a greater community who understands the importance of the work she was doing and appreciates her frontline support many of us wish we could do.
3) My own blood sister, Christine - she requires some corrective surgeries to help her breathe correctly. She is currently operating at less than half of normal breath capacity. She is the one who created the original Raver J logo and website prior to Comic Con in 2004.
We are the ones we have been waiting for.
With great and Unconditional LOVE (Peace, Unity, Respect and Responsibility),

CONSIDERATIONS FOR OUR FUTURE:
There are eco-friendlier options for almost everything now. In invite you to explore them.
There is also a lot of "greenwashing" and propaganda which plays on our emotions. Stay alert. Join groups who have been working "in the field" for a long time and find out what the nuances are. Politics infiltrates a lot...
Consider joining Electronic Music Alliance where we are forming community to address these matters.
Caitlin Johnstone. She is hilarious and speaks that wish I don't have time to write as I currently concentrate on my works of fiction.

The blogs A Wrench in the Gears, Civilianare, and AEVA also provide interesting perspectives.
We are at a crux. We are being steered. The way home is through Nature. Tech should be a tool, not the ruler of our future. Be wary of a better future offered with images of technology and not trees. What we will need is regeneration through soil restoration and reforestation. What we need is to claim sovereignity over outsourced health and food systems. The revolution is allowing the Earth stewards to continue living on their land and the revolution is us coming back to it with good, regenerative vs. extractive, habits.
