      Thanks so much and no worries! I am taking this as a huge step towards my future career. $2,285 is nothing to scoff at, and if I was able to provide the rest out of my own pocket to print, I would surely do that VERY soon.

      Having said that, the project is on a... temporary leave of absence until I can work out a few other things. Thanks so much for your support though, and I will certainly keep you informed!

      Sorry to see you didn't make your goal on this, but you can definitely count me in for some web comic love. Just send me a when and a where, and I'll send you a subscription. Hopefully everything works out, and you can try for another print run. Just based on what I've seen, I would really love to have a copy of "With The Earth Above Us" sitting on my bookshelf sometime in the near future.

      Mark, thanks! It is also my own, haha. Thank you for your support!

      Reminds me of my imagination of space when I was a kid. Love to see the finished result!

      Thanks for getting in touch and the kind words!

      It's nice to know that the "idea" which I'm trying to get across is working, so thank you. More than likely, funding will not succeed, but that is fine. I am looking to put out a webcomic, compiling the first issue, and then each subsequent page, weekly. My hope is to garner a larger crowd and possibly do a much smaller print run in the near future.

      Once again though, thank you for your support and I hope to have you subscribe to the webcomic!

      Hey! I just wanted to say congrats for (almost) reaching the halfway point with your pledges! I'm keeping a close eye on this project, and I've got my fingers crossed that you can make your goal. I love the 2001: A Space Odyssey vibe, and your artwork and dialogue really fit vert seamlessly together with the world and idea that you're trying to convey. Anyway, I'll be keeping my eye on this, and with any luck, I'll have a physical copy to read sometime next year. Good luck!

      Just wanted to thank all of you again for supporting this indie dream of mine, without you I wouldn't stand a chance.
