About

A collection of CREATURE FEATURE short stories by a variety of up and coming creators in the comic industry.  

Our initial funding goal is solely for printing the books, kickstarter fees, and kickstarter rewards. 75% will be dedicated to book printing/rewards, 15% Shipping, 10% KS fees. If we go over our goal, the Accidental Aliens will put that money towards table spaces for Comic Book events over this year, as well as printing other brand new Accidental Alien titles! After $5,500 we will aim at stretch goals such as additional pages, special paperstock covers, and other additional rewards.

Please check out our packages as well as the individual covers and pages for each story below!

Risks and challenges

Each story is completed and ready to be printed, we just need your help with the finances! There is very little to no risk. The only challenge that might occur is a meteor hitting the Earth and making printing books less of a priority. Less of one, but a priority none the less! Also, after last years kickstarter, another issue we ran into were backers not responding to us regarding their shirt sizes and which metal print they would like. A secondary issue we ran into was a delay at one of the printers, due to them having heavy work loads (not related to us). The sooner we hear back from you, the sooner we can order your rewards. Beyond that, we are READY!
