DREAM is an online community of aspiring manga artists who share and promote our ideas, work, and experience through manga.
The DREAM Special Issue is a special printed edition that is independent of our free online magazine. This special edition includes over 100 pages of manga stories, articles, and interviews written and created by our DREAM Manga team. Our intention is to continue our mission of connecting with like-minded manga artists and anime and manga followers and fans.
However, since we are primarily made up of high school and college students, funding for this project is an issue of great importance. Since DREAM Manga's monthly magazines are free, this fundraiser is necessary to obtain the funds needed to cover printing and promotional costs. We plan to use a low-cost on-demand printer but are in need of at least $300 to order printed proofs as well as 50 additional copies that will be sold via the DREAM Manga group members at conventions and other places where manga artists and fans congregate.
We also have a rewards for all our donors! Below are images of each offered reward, and these rewards are cumulative. For instance, if you choose to donate 25$, you will receive the rewards at the 1$, 5$, and 15$ as well:
A mention in the "Thank You" section of the printed Issue
A digital copy of DREAM Special Issue Volume 1 and 2
Six 4"x 6" prints featuring full color cover images by the Special DREAM Issue artists.
A FREE copy of the printed DREAM Manga Special Issue Volume 2
A special DREAM Manga Special Issue Mug
With your support the DREAM Manga Group will be able to make its second major step into the printed medium and continue expanding our reach to even more artists and fans.
Thank you very much for your support!

DREAM is an online community of anime-minded manga artists from all over the world.
Since September 2007, DREAM has published monthly online magazines that include articles, reviews, interviews, and manga made by our group.
DREAM is also a place where online manga artists can connect and share ideas. Since all of our artists are in various stages in their manga making profession, Dream offers support and honest critique.
But mostly, DREAM is where you can find a collection of manga made by diverse artists.
In celebration of our fourth year anniversary and to continue reaching out to the anime and manga community, DREAM will be printing its second annual collection known as the DREAM Special Issue.
With over 100 pages of manga , artwork, and articles, DREAM Special Issue volume 2 will feature a print-only collection of some of DREAM’s rising talent. But in order to bring this Special Issue to print, we must raise at least $300 by February 15th. To meet this goal we are relying on special pledge amounts through the Kickstarter website. And of course, your donations won’t go unrewarded!
Any pledge of $1 or more, earns you a place in the Thank You section in our printed issue.
Any Pledge of $5 or more, and you will receive a digital copy of Dream Special Issues Volume 1 and 2.
The more you pledge the more prizes you receive, including a free copy of the printed DREAM Special Issue!
For a full prize listing go to Kickstarter.com and enter “DREAM Manga Magazine” in the project search box.
With your support, the DREAM Manga Group hopes to continue to find its way as a beacon to aspiring manga artists online and off.
