Forgotten History is a project by Let’s Make Comics, a Chicago-based comic creator collective. This is our third anthology and we’re really excited to share it with you! Each artist has interpreted the theme in their own way, resulting in ten diverse stories covering real history, fictional history, and everything in between.  

The book will be 48 black and white, 8.5x11 pages. Twice the size of our last book! It’s completely finished and ready to go, we just need your help to get it printed.

Risks and challenges

There’s always a chance we’ll run into print problems - formatting mistakes on our end, production errors on the printer’s end, etc - there’s a bunch of stuff that could could slow down delivery. We could also have trouble shipping from us to you - prices could go up, our packages could get lost in the snow, and more! This isn’t our first Kickstarter, however, and we’re confident that we’ll be able to get you your books.
