A 160+ FULL COLOR paged collection of original crime-themed stories, featuring some of the greatest under the radar creators in comics! UNLAWFUL GOOD contains over 16 all-new, original crime-themed stories, an introduction by comic journalist and UNLAWFUL GOOD editor, HEATHER ANTOS, and a criminally enticing feature on the history of crime in comics, by comic book historian and Lady Batman herself, JOE KRAWEC!
We are seeking to raise $7,500 to print and ship this amazing book. The best part? The Anthology is already done! We just need to print it! And that's where YOU come in!
Any money raised in excess of that goal will be used to create some amazing stretch goal rewards, as well as be put towards the publishing of the next anthology. So please, pledge today to get caught red-handed on this gorgeous, one of a kind crime anthology! UNLAWFUL GOOD: AN ANTHOLOGY OF CRIME is a creator-owned exploration of crime, and how it has been perceived throughout time and around the globe! This 6.75" x 10.5" collection of illegal escapades showcases stories from the criminally talented:
An anthology book is a tough sell in the direct market and, as a result, a real risk for publishers. The comic book climate is not as it once was. There was a time when comic anthologies were flying off the shelves, but those days are behind us. The modern day comic buyer has less of an interest in multiple tales by multiple creators, and that lack of interest is reflected in the stock of your local comic shop. SO...here we are! And though the writers and artists have so graciously donated their time and talents for no money up front, printing and shipping fees still need to be covered to make sure their hard work gets seen! We need your help!
Risks and challenges
Because all artwork and design has already been completed for "UNLAWFUL GOOD: An Anthology of Crime," printing and shipping will be the biggest concerns with this project.
However once our funding goal has been fulfilled, the book will be sent immediately for printing. Printing will be handled overseas, so that will add a little more time to the production of the book.
Heather Antos is the editor and project manager on UNLAWFUL GOOD, as well as the creator for other projects. Her involvement in these projects will, in no way, affect or delay the fulfillment UNLAWFUL GOOD.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
