Persephone was about to start her second year of college, when she was tragically killed in a hit and run. Luckily, her eccentric med-student roommate found a way to "fix" her. She is now returned from the dead with only a few scars as to show for it.
In the first chapter, she learned she can now see the supernatural and agreed to help a young demon hunter, Abe. In this chapter, local vampire, Jack, wants to know more about Persephone because his powers don't work on her.
[Super]Natural Attraction is a episodic digital comic with a dark sense of humor. It's inspired by a love of the paranormal and reverse-harem shojo manga (such as Ouran Host Club). The first chapter was successfully kickstarted in January 2017. Here's a bit of a preview of this new chapter.
This Kickstarter is to fund the second 22 page chapter/story. The book is already written and Kara has started drawing it. It will need roughly 2 months for the art to be finished. If the Kickstarter goes well or overfunds, we will release more stories every other month. Each will be 22 pages. Each brought to you by Kel McDonald, Kara Leopard, Whitney Cogar, and Roxy Polk.
The writer Kel McDonald is responsible for several comics over the years. This includes her webcomics Sorcery 101, the graphic novel series Misfits of Avalon, running the Cautionary Fables and Fairy Tales Anthology series, and writing Buffy: The High School Years.
The artist Kara Leopard finished their webcomic Mr.Hare & Mr.Bear last year and has drawn stories for anthologies and zines like They Have Issues and the Strange Zine. They loves cats and candy, and have a morbid fascination with natural disasters.
The colorist Whitney Cogar is an illustrator and colorist from Savannah GA. She has worked on many BOOM! Studios titles including Giant Days, The Amazing World of Gumball, and the Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy crossover. Her other focus is an online shop, smashpansy.com, which offers nerdy products for people who are on the internet too much.
The editor, Roxy Polk, is an artist and former Dark Horse Comics editor. She is currently doing freelance art, writing, and comics editing. Her previous webcomic, Transpose Operator ran for several years, and her new webcomic, Lacuna Break, is launching later this year. You can find her work on her personal site www.roxypolk.com
Since [Super]Natural Attraction is digital only, most of the money is going to paying Kara and Whitney for their time and the rest is going to Kickstarter fees or promotion of the series (Last Kickstarter, we used some money to buy and ad on Rose Buddies podcast). That will all roughly come to $5000. We made sure all our rewards are digital, so that we don't have to worry about shipping fees.
Since this is a series, each time we hit 5k, another chapter/story will be add ons as a reward tier on the Kickstarter.
$10,000 will fund chapter 3.
$15,000 will fund chapter 4.
$20,000 will fund chapter 5.
We have 10 chapters planned and agreed on.
