Jake is a young man who loves music, his friends, his Vespa and his favourite sport. In the gym he goes to in Milan, he will discover something that he would never have imagined: his Masters are not who he thought they were, and more importantly, the weapon he uses for light saber combat can actually be activated, turning into a lethal weapon. Which of his course mates knows the secret of Polaris? But above all, what do the Masters and their most loyal followers have in mind? Together with his friends, Jake will go on a journey to discover the truth, meeting adversaries and allies, and will discover that it is not always easy to know the difference between them.
THE META-DIMENSIONAL GRAPHIC NOVEL
“A Story of Light: Polaris” is a comic book that speaks about real people that we may meet in the street or – in this case – in a gym. These people however, live in a world very similar to ours, where some elements are new and mysterious. A world where we will find aliens, monsters, incredible technology and superhuman threats that can only be faced with a legendary weapon… In this world we will also find friendship, value, courage, compassion and so much adventure.
“A Story of Light: Polaris” is a meta-dimensional comic as it allows you to know (and recognise) the protagonists and places where Light Saber Combat is fought in the real world.

The LudoSport Founder Masters developed the heart of a story years ago when the real and imaginary planes merge, where real people could move from one plane to the other via sports competition.
SHOWRUNNER, SCRIPT AND SCREENPLAY
One of the leading comic authors in Italy, Giovanni has worked for years at Sergio Bonelli Editore where he developed stories for Dylan Dog, Martin Mystère and many others. After several experiences as producer of comic series, he contributed to the creation of the “A Story of Light: Polaris” universe, together with Gianluca and Simone, who have also collaborated with him as consultants for combat scenes.
With her great talent of dynamic portrayal and in creating combat scenes, Valeria was recruited by the “Assassin’s Creed” franchise to visually develop the comic book “Assassin’s Creed: Reflections”. She then joined this project and helped the authors to materialise the world that they had imagined and made it unique and fascinating.
Alessandro Musumeci, Daniele Rudoni
With long-standing experience as a professional colourist, Daniele and his team have coloured for the big names: Marvel, DC comics, Image, Penguin, Devil’s Due, Sergio Bonelli, Soléil and several others. Their careful, vivid touch further embellishes each storyboard of “A Story of Light: Polaris”.
THE COMIC WITHIN THE COMIC
“A Story of Light: Polaris” contains a “special feature”: each issue hosts a single lightsaber combat technique developed by the LudoSport Masters and practised within the network. A special illustrated insert by the artist Anna Diaz will describe the technique in detail to satisfy the curiosity of even the most careful.
