The Anywhere Man is a graphic novel about Frank Collins, an alcoholic ex-soldier. A horrible accident imbues him with the power to teleport, with just one catch: he can’t control where or when he teleports. Callie, head of security for Alctel, the company responsible for the teleportation technology, is in pursuit of Frank, seeking to discover the secret to surviving teleportation.  

Combining classic science fiction and Cronenberg-style body horror, The Anywhere Man is a riveting look into one man’s descent into despair while looking for redemption.

THIS GRAPHIC NOVEL COLLECTS ALL THREE ISSUES (THE COMPLETE STORY) AND WILL BE GOING TO THE PRINTERS SHORTLY AFTER THE CAMPAIGN!

About The Editor:

Chase Magnett is a mild-mannered finance guy by day and a raving comics fan by night. He has been reading comics for more than half of his life (all 25 years of it). After graduating from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln with degrees in Economics and English, he has continued to research comics. He writes criticism and essays at sites like ComicBook.Com, Comics Bulletin, and Comics Alliance, and works as a freelance editor for comics projects as well. Don't ask about his favorite comic unless you're ready to spend a day discussing dozens of different titles.

Risks and challenges

Under Belly is a new Canadian comic book & graphic novel publishing company, dedicated to bringing you the freshest and most innovative comics from around the world.

Originally the brain child of Adam Jack & Kyle Joseph McEwan to promote and distribute their own work, Under Belly is now pushing forward with producing and publishing some of world's newest up and coming creator owned/independent comics.

We follow a "Kickstarter first" method of publishing, so we will often have more than one project running on Kickstarter at a time. A challenge for us will be managing multiple campaigns at once. But delivering books to our backers will never be a problem. We have different creative teams assigned to each book to make sure they get finished in a timely fashion.
