'An Extra Man' is my second comic book on Kickstarter. My first book, Polaris was successfully funded, here, on Kickstarter not more than two months ago. 'An Extra Man' is very different, art and story-wise.

Writing

'An Extra Man' takes its roots in the golden age of science fiction - 50's and 60's. The stories of Bradbury, Asimov, Clarke  and other masters made post WWII readers familiar with the strange and the unknown, put them face to face with a hardly imaginable future of humanity. Like an episode of Twilight Zone or The Outer Limit it places the reader inside the surreal and by the end attempts to shift reader's point of view on the world. Warning: An Extra Man has no happy ending.

Art

This book has a stripped down, clip-art-like style. Two-tonal shading, minimal rendering of the environment making a lean and concentrated storytelling. Like the actors on the small, set-less stage, the characters of the book are relying on every move and expression to drive story forward. Some  of the panels look like key drawings in an animated movie.

Story

Doctor Green is having his usual morning at the office. Being a physiologist specializing in elderly, normally he is seeing some old granny about her nightmares. But instead his next visitors are two younger, nameless man in large hats. Whoever those man are they are very happy to see Dr. Green. Years of search lead them to him and bewildered Doctor is not sure why. After subjecting our Doctor to the unusual questioning they declare: Doctor, you are The Extra Man! To reveal the rest here is to rob you of the suspenseful reading. But to get the feel of it, here are the first couple of pages of the book.

As you can see, Dr. Green is puzzled by the news. If you puzzled just like him and want to see what awaits our hero check out the rewards for your support of 'An Extra Man'.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The only challenge is reaching the goal. This is why my goal is below the floor level. The rest is not new to me. My printing guy is proven himself once before, and he's ready to do it again. The US Post Office worked its magic and it still in business. So all is left for you is to get behind this project and wait for the book to arrive.
