WHAT IS "MUTE"?
MUTE is a 48-page modern noir comic, written by Frank Cvetkovic and drawn by Michael Harris, that deals with the consequences of honest mistakes.
MUTE follows Adrian Kim, a deaf steel mill worker, and his ladyfriend, Meg, as they find themselves on the run from a ruthless killer, after Adrian accidentally mistakes the killer's smartphone – filled with incriminating evidence of grisly murders – for his own.
Because Adrian is deaf, there is absolutely no spoken dialogue or sound effects in the comic. You, as the reader, are just as "deaf" as Adrian is. Which means that there aren't any sort of advanced warnings of oncoming danger. No footsteps slowly growing louder or gunshots ringing through an alleyway; just bullets whizzing past your head.

Like every Kickstarter project, we need your help to make our book a reality. Of the $7,000 we need to produce MUTE, fifty percent of the money raised will cover art production; a quarter will go towards printing the book; and the rest of the money will be divided up and used to pay for shipping, Kickstarter fees, and various campaign rewards.
If we hit $8,000: we will add EXTRA CONTENT to the book, including a sketchbook section, text pieces, and more!
If we hit $9,000: LOCKED.
More stretch goals that will be revealed as things progress!
