About

$7,641

We have had 20 successful campaigns here in Kickstarter. This is the Autumn 2018 production. 

We do not have the manpower of Disney or the worldwide acceptance of a popular name such as Archie or Spider-Man, so what do we have to offer?

We have … Something Different.

What comes after Something Marvelous?

Something Different: A Unique Celebration

We can't go head-to-head with the more familiar comic books so we offer Something Different, a 48-page comics anthology. This one is a once-in-a-lifetime production from Snyder and Ditko! A salute to our friend, Steve Ditko.

This is a book we first imagined early last year. We had been working on this book for many months but had not finalized everything when Ditko took ill. The work has now been completed. And is almost ready to go.

This is where you come in. We need your help us cross the Finish Line. Your name will be added to the list of backers in the text pages as we receive your Pledge.

Yes, we are that close to production. The cover and all features are complete, all but the editorial pages. Once you give us the go-ahead, we will complete work on these pages, review the material one more time just to be certain everything is in order and then send the book to the printer. Without delay or excuses.  

For those who are counting, this is Book no. 57 since we began publishing in 1988.

Pass the word along, please. As mentioned previously, we are not like those more familiar titles and can use all the help we can get.  

Risks and challenges

Our continuing challenge is how best to keep you in suspense, how to tantalize you, how to interest you in supporting our work and helping to spread the word about Something Different.
Our new book is complete and ready to go to print as soon as you give us the word. All that remains is the composition of the editorial pages. There will be no delay or second-guessing, no hold-up in printing and mailing this book to you. After 20 successful campaigns, we know what we are doing and how best to serve you.
