Introducing the second book of the  Faith Says You trilogy, following last year's successfully fulfilled Kickstarter campaign.

In Faith Says You 1: It’s Dark Outside, Joanna was drowning in the backwaters of 90s England. Her shitty seaside town was slowly suffocating her, and her childhood lurked around every corner.

But now her boyfriend, Chris, is no longer the anchor that she needed him to be, because Joanna has met her. The messiah.

The daily litany of cleaning hotel rooms, texting her boyfriend, eating cheap dinners and sleeping late seems to have grown insignificant. Despite her reality, Joanna can feel deep down that she and her saviour are destined to do great things, and together they will illuminate a path through loss and transformation, and out into the air.

Panel from Book 2

The second volume in this trilogy is 108pp, perfect-bound, full-colour, with 120gsm  interior pages and 300gsm matte covers. The book is sized at w170mm x  h236mm, with title design by Paul Duffield

Please note: this series discusses suicide from volume 1 onwards, and as such may not be suitable for everyone. Please take care.

In case you missed Book 1, Faith Says You: It's Dark Outside, you can click though on the image below (external link to my blog!) so that you can read the first few pages!

And now I'm looking for your help to print the second book, Faith Say You: I Know You Are, But What Am I? If you're here from my previous campaign, can I just say HI! AND THANK YOU! Let's do this again! :D

This Kickstarter aims to fund the second book of Faith Says You, and to make the first book available again for new Backers.  Funds will go directly towards the printing, packaging, distribution,  extras (things like the Bookplates, ink cartridges etc.) and fees. Here  is a rough costing breakdown:

Hello! My name is Kate and I like making comics. I live in  Northamptonshire with my comic-making partner, Paul Duffield. I've been  drawing and writing all my life! My first printed comic was a little  strip for my primary school's class newspaper about a cat and a dog. I took it  very seriously *thumbs*

Since then, I've been involved with The DFC and The Phoenix, Young Avengers, The Wicked + The Divine, Freakangels, The Firelight Isle, Alex Rider, Attack on Titan and lots of other stuff too!

In 2010, I was awarded the Sequential Art Fellowship for the Arts Foundation, and the funding went towards my first "big" book, Fish + Chocolate, which was subsequently picked up for wider release by SelfMadeHero. In 2015, I made a little comic calledThe Unicorn & The Woodsman, which was self-funded. I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to continue publishing my new independent book series, Faith Says You, here with you!

Risks and challenges

This is my second solo Kickstarter project, following last year's successful completion of the first volume of the Faith Says You trilogy. I am familiar with the risks and challenges that come with running a campaign, yet of course recognise that sometimes things go wrong.

As such, I will immediately notify Backers of any situations that may change or delay the running of the Campaign, or the delivery of Rewards to Backers. As with my previous Campaign, I am striving to keep the Tiers simple so that I can focus on getting your Rewards to you as soon as I can.

I have set the Reward Delivery for all Tiers to January 2020 as a very conservative estimate - I would expect to have all items posted before then, and of course PDFs sent much sooner. I am aware final delivery to certain countries can take some time, hence setting the date back so far.

Faith Says You Book 2: I Know You Are, But What Am I? has a status of approximately 95% complete. I have all the linework finished, and have a few pages left to colour. It needs to be proofed, and should be ready to go to the printers once the funds come through from this Campaign!

If you have any queries, please email me: extra.minty@gmail.com, or contact me on Twitter @autojoy - I will respond ASAP to you. Thank you!
