This is a campaign to fund the next two issues of How I Spent My Summer Invasion. An all ages comic about 3 friends who discover a secret hotel for intergalactic alien travelers.
We're trying to raise funds to publish issues 2-3 because then we can distribute the comic on a national level. Right now, How I Spent My Summer Invasion is only available in Southern California. However, we've been in talks with a big company, and our distribution situation may change if our funding is successful. Here's the deal. If we can make three really great comics, the company will very likely pick us up for national distribution. That means readers all across North America will have the opportunity to pick up our comics for themselves, or buy them as a gift for their kids.
The main reason we've put up this campaign is to cover the publishing costs. We Comics put a lot of their own money into publishing the first three titles, and with some additional funding we'll be able to continue making these comics available, plus we'll be able to finish up our first storylines we think our readers will really enjoy.
We're published by We Comics, a company that produces great stories that feature strong lead female characters. Right now there's not a lot of comic titles that target these demographics, so We Comics is attempting to bridge that gap by making comics for everyone else.
Right now we're finishing up the art for issue 2 and the script for issue 3. We're connecting a storyline in these issues that involves a mysterious saboteur who is trying to ruin the hotel's reputation, plus a storyline where the human characters try to hide the aliens from the police.
A new character named Elly is also being introduced in Issue 2. She's a feisty 8-year old girl, basically a female version of Fox Mulder from the X-files. She's tough, always looking for answers, and never afraid to say what's on her mind. We're really excited to add her to the Summer Invasion team, and believe she's going to make a great addition to the story.
On behalf of the crew behind How I Spent My Summer Invasion, and the team at We Comics, we thank you for your contribution and look forward to sharing the finished project with you in a few short months.
