New Nebula Volume One is a space-themed, sci-fi anthology of ten short comics and several pages of pin-up art transmitted from darkest corners of the cosmos.

-100+ pages of Science-fiction comics, pin-up art, sketches, and portraits.

-Expected delivery of December 2015. Just in time for the holidays.

-Lots of Rewards and Backer-Levels to choose from.

Stretch Goal $3,000:  Mini Comic from Ben Truman and Niki Ortiz for every backer at $25 or more!

Stretch Goal $4,000: We can pay our artists and writers!  

We started this project with the hopes of just getting New Nebula printed.  Now that we've reached that goal it would mean a lot to be able to give everyone involved a modest payment for their fine work.  

Bonus Material at $15+ from stretch goals reached so far:

  • Stickers featuring the unforgettable New Nebula Logo!
  • A haunting postcard print of “The Migration” by Abigail Jones!
  • Bookmarks! Deep space tested.
  • The Soundtrack! Seven tracks from the composer of our video’s theme music!

 Several of our contributors met in the Illustration and Design programs at the University of Arizona, in Tucson. New Nebula has become something of a class reunion for a handful of art students who have parted ways since graduation.

This is a first venture into comics for some of our contributors but I think you'll find, based on the images in the video and on this page, that their talent speaks volumes.

Rewards! These original Illustrations can be yours at the $35 level!

All of the money raised is going to be used towards one large print run to provide copies for our backers as well as provide copies for each of our contributors for all the hard work they have done.

Please help us turn New Nebula into a real, tangible book that our creators and you, the backers, can enjoy and share with others. Thanks!

Stretch Goals:

-$1,700 -Stickers! Every backer at $15 or more will receive a sticker of our awesome logo designed by Coco Davis.

-$1,800-Prints! Every backer at $15 or more will receive a postcard sized print of Abigail Jones' pin-up titled "The Migration" (see below)

Risks and challenges

Any project with this many contributors comes with obstacles. Fortunately, we have already been hard at work on New Nebula for several months and all of our contributors are fully committed to its completion. All that remains are the finishing touches (mostly lettering) and printing/shipping the book to our wonderful supporters.

Unforeseen complications may arise, but I plan to keep our backers informed throughout the process, rain or shine. Luckily, many of us live in Tucson, so I will have plenty of help packing and mailing once we have the books.
