What Is This MiniComic About?
The Tomb of Naomi is a classic style Gothic Romance comic set in the Industrial Revolution. It was written by Luke Herr and illustrated by Sara Delano. When I say it is a classic style Gothic Romance I mean Wuthering Heights, not HP Lovecraft.
The story focuses on Anne Naomi, a young woman, whose father recently died. Now Anne, who has entered marriage age must choose a suitor from a set of three men she has no interest in. In an attempt to delay the choice between the men, she promises her hand to whomever can complete a tomb for her family in the ancestral Inmarwolf Castle. When the workers in the tomb begin to mysteriously die, the tensions rise, family rivalries surge and ultimately Anne must decide whether or not to reveal the truth.
Who Are These People Behind The Comic?
How Long Is The Comic?
The comic is a compact but dense 10 page comic.
Has The Comic Been Edited?
Totes hardcore question asker! The comic has gone through 5 completely different drafts and 4 rounds of professional level editing for the best and most comprehensible story we can give to you.

Simple! $100 is the smallest amount we'd need to print books for everyone who would order them and while also making extras for ourselves to sell.

How Far Along Is The Project Currently?
Right now the comic script is done to the point where Sara is able to work on the art for each page.
Did A Lot Of Research Go Into The Comic?
I spent several hours looking into funeral customs, etiquette and Victorian superstitions to make this the best comic possible and then Sara spent a lot more time designing period appropriate costumes and sets for the comic.
Is This All Ages Appropriate?
We drop the word shit once but otherwise this is pretty PBS friendly. (And yes, we looked up how and when shit was used as a swear!)
Is This Part Of A Series?
This is a one shot story about romance, families, curses and also people dying of things they don't understand.
Risks and challenges
Sickness, printing issues, perfectionism, loss of limbs, global disasters and sudden job gaining may all delay the comic but it is already in production, the comic should be completed in the two months of production and then construction and shipping is usually very quick.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
