The goal of this project is to raise funds to create a print version of The Long Fall: Issue One. The book will be a standard 6.625" X 10" comic book, in full color. So what is The Long Fall about?
The story is set decades into the future, after an event called, "The Fall." Civilization as we know it has ended. People struggle to survive in a brutal, changed world. One group of survivors have banded together to create a small village. They are led by an old man, perhaps the oldest man in the world. He remembers the ways of the world before the Fall. He's used this knowledge to help them survive. As the story begins, we learn that he's taken on an apprentice, a gifted young man named Thomas. However, their village is about to face a new threat. Secrets, both small and large, will be revealed. Their lives will never be the same.
The Long Fall is a coming of age story about finding hope in the face of hopelessness, friendship in the face of adversity, and love where you least expect it.
Risks and challenges
Challenge #1: It's our first time.
This is the first Kickstarter project for Island City Comics. We know and understand that this will be learning experience for everyone involved. We hope that by setting a modest goal, we can learn from the experience and plan more ambitious projects in the future.
Challenge #2: Will I actually get a copy of the book?
Sometimes a project comes to Kickstarter before the final product is complete. We are fortunate in that out book is finished. We have 24 full color pages (and cover art) ready to go to the printer. The money that we raise through this Kickstarter will be going towards the printing and shipping costs.
Challenge #3: Why Another Comic Book?
We understand that there are many projects out there hoping to get your support. We have tried to create backer rewards for all levels of interest in this project. We believe that our story is unique, our art is beautiful, and the product we are creating is a great value to you.
Challenge #4: Issue One? Is this a series?
Yes, this is the first of what we hope will be a six part series. We have scripts for the future books. It is our hope that readers will enjoy this book, and support future installments.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
