A comic book series independently written and drawn by me, Lee Milewski. 

It takes several of my favorite influences (80's science fiction films, Lovecraft mythology, horror comics) and smashes them together, creating a unique and bold vision in today's crowded comic scene.

This collection will house all three issues of the series (originally available online for free HERE), including guest pinups and extra content not seen ANYWHERE else. Here are a few:

Walter Ostlie and Dan Charnley

 Other artists featured in this collection: Sheridon Wright, Daniel Warren Johnson, Daniel Watts, Mal Earl, Luke Parker

This story follows a group of scientists and soldiers into the wooded terrain of an exotic planet. What follows is a tense cat-and-mouse game between this world's vicious inhabitants and those willing to fight for their survival.

This series envisions a world of distinctive monsters and non-stop action. What else could you want?

I have spent the better part of 2013 working on Tangled Weeds by myself. Creating the individual issues was a tremendous learning experience, along with giving me a proper outlet to tell my own stories. 

Now, with ALL of the artwork completed, the book's layout FINALIZED, and the necessary steps for printing having been taken... There's only ONE thing left to do: Print! 

This is also the most difficult aspect of self-publishing, as properly printing a collection of this size (74+ pages, in color) can be daunting, financially. This is where YOU, the reader, comes in!

With your help I can fully realize physical copies of Tangled Weeds, allowing me to sell this property at conventions, in local comic shops, and from my website. It's the next step in publishing, and one that I want to take along with my potential readers.

I'm prepared to have the whole thing cleaned up, proof-read and prepped for print by the end of May 2014.

I will be shipping the books out within that same month, if not sooner.

The book's specs are the following:

  • 74+ Pages of artwork, in addition to added content not seen anywhere else.
  • Softcover
  • 5 x 7 inches

Risks and challenges

Considering the artwork is entirely DONE, there is not much more to prevent me from printing. I have evaluated my quotes, done the proper math, and fully believe this project will happen with little, to no, problems.
