Welcome! This Makes Me Sad is a comic anthology by Let’s Make Comics!, a Chicago-based comic collective. Once a year we pull a theme out of a hat and turn our members loose on it, with weird and wonderful results. This year we explore melancholy, wistfulness, grief, depression... and the strength that can be found despite, or because of, those things.
The book will be 48 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 to help folks make comics. Books that don't go toward fulfillment are split evenly among participants - we're planning on 20 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!

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. We've negotiated reprints of bad runs, shipped out replacement books that got lost or damaged, and we’re confident that in the end we’ll be able to get you your books.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
