About

Noir is a collection of interconnected dark sci-fi stories. It can be read as a unique standalone book or as part of the larger world all of my comics exist in. To assist this every pledge comes with a free 144page digital graphic novel of The Human Beings vol.1 and a key card that connects all the books and characters. 

The book itself is a 40page perfect-bound U.S. format comic. It is also the first book I have made solely in black&white. 

The comic contains seven short stories that all interconnect to create a web of dark deals and double crosses. 

This is my 17th Kickstarter. As with all my previous books the work is already complete and the funds are used simply to cover printing and postage. KICKSTARTER IS THE ONLY PLACE TO GET PRINT COPIES OF THE BOOKS. It is also the only place to get exclusive new material like prints and merch. In the rewards this time we have exclusive variants, t-shirts, back catalogue packages, and even a Human Beings bottle opener.

Due to its popularity in the last Kickstarter - "Actors" - the "Border Lord" tee is returning for one more outing but this will be the very last chance to get it. Appropriately the original Border Lord story is contained in Noir. There is also a brand new cover tee available too. Border Lord is black on grey and the cover tee is black on white and both come in female and male sizes.

Finally I know some rewards have unique items - like the bottle opener - so if you want to pledge a higher reward and include another item just message me and we can sort out any additional combinations you would like. ( e.g. add 6 for a bottle opener and msg me). Plus any other queries at all please just get in touch. Hope you like it all,

S

Risks and challenges

This is my 17th Kickstarter. All the work is already complete. Everything is dispatched in as short a turnaround time as possible after funds clear with most books arriving within 6 weeks after the campaign. All the funds are used to cover printing and postage and if we're lucky a few extra stretch goal items too. If there is anything else you would like to know please get in touch - you can find me on instagram - sjmccunembc or twitter @StuartMcCune. Thanks.
