What's it all about? 

The Save Ukraine online comic book launched in early May. Check out the first issue in Ukrainian or English on our website: www.saveukraine.com

We are an artist and a publisher and writer who have teamed up to make the comic book, which follows in a fictional format the growing corruption and the jailing of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko in Ukraine.

The comic book is a trilogy, and we are looking for your support to finish our last two issues, and also to help spread the word about the project!

Who are "we?"

We are two individuals who believe in creativity and art, and their power to bring pertinent issues to the fore. We hope our comic book provokes genuine thought and conversation about all its central issues, specifically, rule of law, integrity, corruption and the limits of human patience. 

While Marshall's background is in media development and publishing in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, our artist, who will remain unnamed for safety reasons, is an accomplished graphic designer. 

Why should I pledge for this project?

Because you are one of those people who believes in creativy and art and their ability to spark debate, thought, change and discussion!

Hey now, so what do I get? 

Well played! Just have yourself a gander at the column on the right side of this page, and you'll find all our various rewards for pledgees. We offer specially designed and signed posters, caricatures, and even the chance for you or your loved-one to be featured as a hero in one of our issues!

What if we beat our goal?

The goal is just the start! 

If you help us to beat our goal, then we can continue producing our comic book, expand our efforts and maybe even do a few print runs as well! 

What if I don't know much about Ukraine?

Well, you probably know more than you think already. A few words: "Very lovely jailed prime minister." There, you see! Now you've remembered!

What is the money for? 

We plan to use the money to finish and promote the final two issues of our comic book -- approximately 100+ pages! 

How do we plan to do this?

We're already well into the project! Check out our first issue here:
