You can also see a full interview with me discussing my art, inspirations and Adamsville.  It was a lot of fun:

WHAT'S THE STORY?

Bigger in every way, this second book in the trilogy offers up an action packed, suspense filled follow up to the 2014 graphic novel.

It's been several months since Chloe and Todd destroyed the monster under their streets, stopped the mad scientist that created it and saved the boy from both of their clutches....  And they're no closer to discovering the truth of the shadowy group behind it all, Eden.  The Middle School Fall Dance is fast approaching and offers Todd and Chloe a chance to forget about their troubles for a night, but Eden has big plans on using the dance as the next stage for their experiments.

Can Chloe, Todd and their friends make it out of the school, or will they become one of the many victims of Eden's plans?

With Adamsville Book 2: The Garden it was a huge challenge to bring a bigger, funnier, and scarier story to my readers.  I'm really proud of the book that came out of all the work and I can't wait to share it all with you!

If you've never read Adamsville before, you can read the entire first book online at Webtoons.com and book 2 premieres there November 7th, with new updates every Saturday.

What's the project?

The book is 213 pages long, and is almost ready to go to print.  The funds raised with this Kickstarter will be used to fund:

-The first print run of book 2
-Fulfilling all rewards 
-ISBNs and any copyrighting of the book

Anything extra will go towards:
-Attending as many conventions as possible to help spread the word on Adamsville.
-Hiring assistants to complete production on the final book in the Adamsville series.

Praise for Adamsville Book 1:

"Where else can you find suspense comics that are safe for kids? Michael Regina has created a comics roller coaster ride and you don't have to be a certain height to get on."

- Stephen McCranie, creator of Penguin's Mal and Chad, and Spaceboy

"Adamsville breathes the same type of exciting mystery and adventure air as the movies I grew up with as a kid. If book one is only the beginning, I'm eager to read where Regina's beautiful storytelling takes the town's inhabitants next."

- Mike Maihack, creator of Scholastic's Cleopatra In Space

We've put together a great selection of reward tiers for you all.  So take a look and see what works best for you and, thank you always for your support!
