Califia and the Timeless Sentries Episode II "Legacies" Streaming Now on YouTube!

Science Fantasy Motion Comic Explores the Continuing Adventures of Legendary Literary Heroes of Color

LOS ANGELES - Feb. 14, 2020 - PRLog -- Califia and the Timeless Sentries — the exhilarating science-fantasy motion comic is back! Episode II, "Legacies," is streaming now on YouTube!

Califia — the legendary Nubian Amazon queen after whom California was named — joins forces with Sir Morien the Black Knight, Mowgli, Madame Butterfly, Sycorax the Sorceress, William Tell, and Dawn Henry, a female descendant of John Henry, to defend the weak against the malevolent forces of a mysterious land where time, space, science and magic defy the laws of nature.  Set on the lost continent of Lemuria, people and things have been transported there through wormholes for centuries.  The question is — why and by whom?

Califia and the Timeless Sentries spotlights obscure or misunderstood classic literature characters of diverse backgrounds. The motion comic explores their proposed fates beyond the old tales and into alternative fiction.  The Sentries are reimagined as the gallant heroes their stories have always quietly demanded.

In Episode I, "Sacrifices," the Sentries were in a life and death battle against the bloodthirsty Moreauvians in an attempt to save the people of the Village.  The Moreauvians are paganistic were-beasts and the Village is one of the last human refuges in all of Lemuria.

In Episode II, "Legacies," Califia witnesses the death of a dear companion long ago at the hands of Serpentine. In present day Lemuria, the Sentries continue their mission to save the people of the Village from the blood-thirsty Moreauvian man-beasts. A high school aged girl from Harlem, NY learns about her amazing family legacy and a ferocious giant gorilla-lizard hybrid threatens the lives of the Sentries.

"Califia was always intended to be a clandestine heroine," says Califia and the Timeless Sentries creator Keith L. Underwood.  "I want the viewer to learn more about her at the same pace as the Sentries.  We dissect Califia's enigmatic past from their vantage point."

The motion comic process combines animation elements with a traditional comic book.  This method was chosen as a clever and cost-effective way to produce Califia and the Timeless Sentries.  It was also an effective way to create a presentation piece for potential usage in other forms of media.  View a full list of the cast and crew on IMDb.

EL PASO, Texas — The top running backs for Arizona State and Florida State won't be around for the Sun Bowl. Sun Devils coach Herm Edwards and interim Seminoles coach Odell Haggins can live with those decisions regardless of their effect on Tuesday's game. “Don't forget that these players that are sitting out actually helped these teams get to bowl games,” Edwards said. "Some people get all sideways. ‘Why isn’t he playing?' It's the way of the world. You don't disrespect them. You don't get mad at them. “I'm hoping they'll show up for the game, stand on the sidelines....
