Welcome! Out of the Deep is a comic anthology by Let’s Make Comics, a Chicago-based comic creator collective. Once a year for the last four years, we've pulled a theme out of a hat and then turned our members loose on it. This year the stories range from deep in the ocean to deep in space to deep in the mind, and the horrors (and beauty) you can find there.
The book will be 52 pages, black and white and 8.5 x 11. The pages have all been turned in and the book is almost ready to go - we just need your help to get it printed.
The goal of Let's Make Comics! as a group is, well, helping folks make comics. Books that don't go toward fulfillment are split evenly among participants - we're planning on 30 copies each this year - and leftover funds are put back into the group (convention fees, pizza parties, etc). Backing gets you a rad book and helps us us do a ton of cool stuff - If you're interested, take a look at the reward tiers below!

We're funded! That means it's time for some stretch goals:
Goal 1 ($1,850): a bonus 8 page comic by Daimon Hampton. MET!
Goal 2 ($2100): a $25 bonus for each participant. MET!
Goal 3 ($2270): a year of webhosting for the LMC! website. MET!
Everything after that will go towards book production (heavier paper, etc) and group activities (convention fees, etc). Thank you, everyone!

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, the possibilities are endless. This isn’t our first Kickstarter, however, and we’re confident that in the end we’ll be able to get you your books.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
