Launching a New Kickstarter Campaign: Empty Space!
Tomorrow around 8 p.m. I'll be setting in motion a new Kickstarter campaign. This one is for a graphic novel called...Empty Space.
I've described Empty Space as a cross between Star Trek and Lost, but it's really more than that. It's a twisty, turny narrative set against the limitless backdrop of the stars, with the sort of bizarre alien species and against-all-odds derring-do that's always characterized the best space adventure--along with a heaping dollop of the macabre.
This is the kind of tale I've wanted to tell for a long time. In fact, it's a dream project for a guy who fell in love with comics and science fiction at the age of six and never stopped loving them.
On the other hand, I have to confess that I'm more than a little nervous. Our goal is $10,000, which is what I need to pay my pencil artist, my inker, my colorist, my letterer, and my page designer for just the first leg of the project. I can wait for the possibility of getting a few shekels on the back end but it wouldn't be fair to ask my teammates to do that. When you see the quality of the artwork I've highlighted in the campaign (and here a bit as well), you'll understand how much they've put into Empty Space, and how deserving they are of recompense.
I'd be honored if you would support this effort as you've supported my others. As soon as I've launched, I'll send you the link.
Keeping my fingers crossed...
