When chaos is brought upon the Sea,
And Red Mist reigns down violently;
An Aqualiser, there will be."

Story excerpt: THE AQUALIZERS & THE RED MIST
Our story begins far beneath the surface of the ocean waves where a large blue creature is gliding peacefully through the waters. He was once known by the ancient title of Manakel, like an angel of the oceans, because of his desire to nurture the young and share his vast wealth of knowledge about the deep. Nowadays, through preference, he is often referred to by the simpler title of Monsieur Whale, or Mr. Whale.
Today, he is just wandering, calmly. Letting the ocean currents just carry him. He has a quiet wisdom about him, and appears to see and know all there is to be known, cherished and loved about the sea.
As he is drifting, he spies some erratic movement in the distance. A flash of light reflected from the sun’s rays above the surface. He goes over to investigate.
It is a young shark, not looking for food, as some would expect but swimming backwards and forwards. He is all alone and has a worried look about him. To Monsieur Whale he seems to be lost and confused. Not wanting to disturb the youngster, the whale keeps his distance a little, yet remains in sight. Then, after a moment, he swims over to see if he can do anything to help.
“Hello young fellow,” he says in his usual friendly tone. “Are you alright?” The young shark was so wrapped up in his own thoughts that he hardly noticed him before and so is startled by the soft, yet deep, calming voice of this big blue individual… TO BE CONTINUED!
All the books are illustrated and we are currently working on the second book and we have another 12 stories planned for the future.
We are presently looking for a publisher to publish and distribute "The Aqualizers" stories.
The full version of our first story is now available. Also, licensing opportunities are now available for merchandising and media partnerships. Please contact us at email@example.com. Thank you.
The Aqualizers stories were developed by Nicolas Bulostin and A. Dee (The Artful Dodger) with passion, awareness, spirit as well as a determination to educate and inspire our future generations.
The Aqualizers name and concept was created by Nicolas Bulostin just after he launched the Aqualise website and brand in June 2008. Nicolas then waited patiently to find the right creative partner to explore the depth of this new adventure and to keep the spirit of Aqualise alive in the future through the stories of The Aqualizers. In 2010, he met A. Dee and decided to collaborate with him and together they developed the stories, characters and branding. With the talented skills of A. Dee as a writer, designer and artistic magician, they could explore all their bizarre, creative and educational ideas.
The Aqualizers books are written in two different formats. One format is with fewer illustrations and designed for pre teenagers. The other format is for young children with 80% less text and an illustration per page. It is designed for parents or teachers to read to children. It is a real educational tool which will encourage awareness, concern and involvement with what is happening in our oceans.
We are also starting to record sound, music and voices/vocals with different actors for audio versions, audio books, android apps and iphone applications.
The DREAM will be to realize all this and moving towards games, animations for TV and Films...
The collaboration of A. Dee and Nicolas is very special, with both creative minds seemingly linked to each other and ready for further inspiring adventures. More than 18 months of hard work - creative brainstorming sessions, developing the ideas and discussing the stories, has been put into the books, the drawings, the characters, the merchandising and the educational media concept. Welcome to our oceanic world!
