Have you ever wondered how heroes and villains manage to keep coming back time and time again with brand new costumes? Torn to shreds on moment then back ready for action the next, one would imagine they have hundreds of outfits just sitting around waiting to be shredded in the line of duty. Along with pristine hair styles, immaculate weapons and perfectly shaved legs even after 6 months in the jungle, the titans of the new age never have a worry because there will always someone behind the scenes doing all the dirty work for them.

Cassi Lyra and Polli Nova are two seamstresses’ that work for either ends of the super scale, creating outfits that the giants of the modern age are adorned in. Descendants from the Gemini star sign brothers Cassi (Castor the mortal) and Polli (Polloux the immortal), one was raised to work for noble, the other to work for the wicked. The estranged sisters start to form a relationship after Polli and Cassi are exposed to the public. Uncovering the hidden truth, a power struggle ensues to see whose costumed champion reigns supreme which concludes is at the terrible cost of Cassi’s eyes. Cassi only wants her family while Polli claws for fame and glory as secrets of the past creep up and the truth about their abilities forces the girls to face a horde of other creators. Testing the costume magicians in their skills, these creative troops reveal more about all their manufactured histories. With heated hairdressers, tactful tattoo artists, crazy cobbles and malicious milliners at every turn, the girls have no choice but to join forces and finally become their own champions to help the only family they now have left.

The art style for this comic is not only complex but rich. With artist Federico Zumel on the pencils, it was his hands that brought Polli and Cassi to life. With detailed pages and crazy contraptions, he captured the paralleled effect between the twin sisters alternating on the page. Cristian Docolomansky ran with the pages injecting only the high quality of ink work into the comprehensive pages which Bryan Arfel Magnaye then finished in stunning splashes of his unique colour blends.

Polli is a unique individual with light pink bubble gum hair she only wears the latest fashion styles when she’s not doing business. Usually found in a sleek, seductive dress, she is the epitome of rich snob and knows it. With the cover of running a fashion house and magazine, Polli has no qualms about flaunting her decadence for the world to see, hiding in plain sight. But it is confident high from her creations in front of the villain’s that boosts her thrill factor having them only come back for more despite her rather unpredictable temper. Polli also has a quirk which is a considerable addiction to coffee. 

Cassi, on the other hand, is a recluse. Only leaving her ‘Nook’ when she must, Cassi is usually found wondering around her hidden studio in just a baggy T-shirt and her underwear. She mostly avoids contact with her clients and all people in general, preferring to spend her time with machines more than man. A complete contradiction to her twin, Cassi is humble and caring with a stubborn sense of pride for her work. Cassi doesn’t care much for fashion and has a cheeky attitude that winds her sister up every time the topic is spoken of. Cassi also has a quirk which is a significant addiction to soda.

The comic book contains 20 pages of Seamstress bliss along with limited artworks in back. The saddle stitched American sized comic book comes in four covers, each page is hand drawn then digitally inked and fully coloured delivered in high gloss print. The first in a series of 28 issues, this is where the first arc of stories begins leading on into the first full volume once the first 7 issues are printed. The pledges that fund this project are going towards seeing that this comic is printed and that future issues of the story will become a real dream come true so that the fans can have the story and the amazing art that it can only be told through.

 N.S Kane

The Kanes have been a driving force in the creation on this project. Head writer N.S Kane and her partner/co-creator, Kate Kane are responsible for bringing Seamstress to life. The idea was sparked off by the comment made about Kate being a seamstress herself, “a human sewing machine that runs on coffee beans” it was this moment that started the world of Seamstress.Writing for almost two years, N.S Kane has done various projects with companies such as RIA and Dual Light studios taking part in anthology work and the comic Nyte Owl. 

Federico Zumel

A master pencilist from Argentina, Federico has had a decorated comic carrier working for companies such as: Penny Farthing Press, Approbation Comics, Forcewerks, Picklepress and Bughouse Comics. Having jumped on the project from the word go, he has been a star at taking the script and adding his inspirational flair to the pages. 

Cristian Docolomansky

Top inker in his field, Cristian has won multiple comic inking awards in his home country of Chile for his attention to detail and flair of workflow in his artistic digital inking method. Currently he is working as an inker to Futuro Esplendor Publishings as well having worked for Double Barrel Theater, Emerald Star, Beyond Reality Media, Ecv Press, Bad Cog overseas.

Bryan Arfel Magnaye

Leading colourist Bryan Arfel Magnaye is yet another embellished artist in the comic community. Having done work for companies such as Red Anvil, C&W Creations and Zenescope, he is well versed in both cover art and sequential colouring. His bright splashes and glowing effects took these pages from flat to futuristic in meer seconds.   

Taylor Esposito

Fresh off his stint at DC, Taylor’s work has been unmatched on the project. With a decorated history as a letterer, he now has his own studio, Ghost Glyph Studios, which prides on exceptionally unsurpassed format workmanship and professional lettering. He gave the girls their voices and has been one of the best people in the comic industry to work with.

Thanks to all the artists who helped make this Kickstarter possible.

Risks and challenges

Funding from this kickstarter project will go into printing and producing this comic. It's 22 pages long and each page is hand drawn then digitally inked and coloured so it takes quite a bit of time to get such a high level of detail. Once all the work is done, the whole comic will be put into a glossy book form ready for sale!

After the book is printed it will be continuing its pitch to high profile publishers, a successful kickstarter being fully funded now has the power to make or break a pitch campaign to publishers and companies all over the world.

This wont stop the support for Seamstress, as if no publisher picks up the series, my aim is to start my own publishing house in the future where this and many other titles will have a home after being rejected so many times.

Indie comics are fast growing as one of the most popular forms of comics and the support for new writers such as myself is really made alive and possible thanks to kickstarters like this one!
