"So what exactly am I getting?"
40+ pages. Full color. Standard trim size. Saddle stitched.  

"What's so 'micro' about these stories?"
Telling a complete story in 20 pages (average length of a floppy these days) is tough. Imagine how incrementally difficult that gets with a reduced page count. These creators went above and beyond that challenge by telling a complete story in 8 pages or less. That's concentrated imagination.

"What is a 'Virtual Release Party'? Sounds gross..." 

  • For a whole hour, electronically rub elbows with the creators! Hear behind-the-scenes anecdotes about the creation of the collection, see works-in-progress, watch tutorials, ask questions and get answers! Plus party favors, of course! Bookmarks, sticker, and mini-print are included with your personalized copy of either volume one or two. Again, no travel required here. Ever used Google Hangout or done any screensharing? It'll be similar to that experience. *FOR A MORE DETAILED EXPLANATION OF THIS REWARD, PLEASE SEE UPDATE #3*

"So what's the dough for?" 

  • Printing costs. It's that simple.

Ultimately, you want to put in on this for at least one of the following reasons:

  • YOU LOVE SCI-FI. Original worlds in the far-flung future. Is it our future? I guess we'll find out. Fans of the Twilight Zone or 2000AD? Us, too!
  • YOU LOVE CREATORS. Every contributor involved is a multi-hyphenate storyteller. You can see their credits in the pages of your favorite Marvel/DC/Valiant/IDW/Boom titles right now, or you will very soon.
  • YOU LOVE DIVERSITY. People of color. Women. Fresh faces. You will not find a more dissimilar batch of folks that have literally nothing in common other than they were brought together to tell these amazing stories.

Risks and challenges

Publishing anything is always a bit of a minefield, but while this is my Kickstarter, it's not my first rodeo. Delays are your biggest worry here, folks. Creators get sick, get offered once in a lifetime gigs, have kids... Stuff comes up, but stuff gets done.

Luckily, all the main stories for Volume One are in. The majority of Volume Two creators are locked in.
