'The Undergrounds' is a nine-issue comic series about the adventures of a family that finds a hole in their backyard.
In the tunnels, the kids and their dog find doors that lead to other worlds. But once the kids discover those worlds, villains in those worlds discover the kids' world..
It all started as a bedtime story for my kids. They loved it, and hounded me for a long time to write it down. Last year, I finally did. And then my friend Jonathan Lareva ran with it. His beautiful artwork brings each world to life.
An early draft of 'The Undergrounds' was a semifinalist in the 2013 Page Screenwriting Awards.
We hope you'll love 'The Undergrounds' as much as we do. In fact, we hope you'll love it so much that you want to become part of the story; we're raising funds to print and ship the first 52-page issue to kickstart the family's adventure!

Risks and challenges
We now have nearly 50 pages completed of our first 52-page comic issue, so barring disability, death, or acts of God, we should be good to deliver the first issue by Spring 2014. Meanwhile, we'll also be working on the follow-up comic issue that continues the family's saga. In case of printing obstacles with the reputable company we've chosen, we have another reputable printing company as backup. We're all in.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
