Welcome to the Kickstarter for Volume One of the Millicent Barnes Comics Library Editions featuring The Tina Käpplinger Mysteries. This first volume contains the long out-of-print comic Cold Colony paired with the brand new Cold Colony 2.  

Both follow detective Tina Käpplinger in tales reminiscent of 70s/80s sci-fi classics. 

The first Cold Colony has EC Comics at its heart and the second is more in line with my recent work on The Human Beings. You can check out here what people have to say about my work from the last campaign earlier in the year.

This reprint edition comes packaged with process extras and sketches too. It will be printed in the original Cold Colony format of 21 x 15 in a 66 page perfect bound digest edition. All subsequent Library editions will follow a similar format. There are four planed so far - Cold Colony, Monologue, City War, and Delta.

If you were lucky enough to find the original book there is also the option to buy the new Cold Colony 2 as a single issue in the reward tiers. For all the completists out there there's the option to buy both and for those who would like something new for the wall there's a double-sided "Lobby Card" to add to your collection.

Although this is the first volume of the Library this is also my eleventh comics' Kickstarter and I always deliver promptly and on schedule. 

All of the work is already complete and should be delivered by July. As always though if you have any questions please message me. 

Thanks for reading and enjoy the new book!

Risks and challenges

This will be my eleventh Kickstarter campaign. The previous ten all funded successfully and were dispatched on time. All of the work for this current book is already complete as are the bookplates and prints. I have built a loyal following by promptly delivering quality comics. You can check my twitter @StuartMcCune to see what people have said about their books and if you have any questions please get in touch.
