    Get 1 copy of the first edition digitally. Digital edition will be formatted as a downloadable PDF and as an interactive app for the mobile web and eventually available on iOS and Android. Digital owners will be one of the first to receive the Graphic Novel / Comic Book. Although one day we would like our releases to be publicly available, free of charge online, we'd like to control this in the beginning, not to mention we need your support!
