"I relish it appearing with every single instalment." - Antony Esmond (Awesome Comics Podcast)

I always enjoy what Tony writes about the books. He has a considered intelligent approach. This is what he had to say about issue two -

"A book of visually haunting poetry at every turn. The words and emotions that pass between the creator, the comic and the reader are often complicated and this is something that I relish in every panel of Stuart's work. It has one of the most intelligent progressions of story and theme that I have read in a comic for a long, long time. The creator plays with perception like no other, reading us as we read it - I sense and suspect many things in the to and fro of conversation, emotion, action and pacing. Appearances are often deceiving and the words cement a nervous uncertainty in the reader. I am one thousand per cent along for the ride.

The Human Beings and Monologue before it take that chance of freezing on certain moments and feelings. We get reality at different speeds. Sometimes the action is amped up and fast and frenetic and then at a moments it is halted for the reader to sit and ruminate on that captured second of time. Triumphantly playing with the medium. Those words that are spoken will echo onwards, bouncing back at the reader when the void orders it...."

Thanks Tony. You can read more here - https://t.co/z9eSMklXp6

Risks and challenges

This campaign will follow the same template as previous issues.
I have successfully run Kickstarters for a few years now and I always offer high quality products. You can check my twitter feed @StuartMcCune to see previous backer's responses. This campaign will follow the same model. This campaign will run through November and after the few weeks Kickstarter need to clear funds that will take us into December. The Christmas period tends to be hectic and in the past to prevent postal loss or delay I prefer not to dispatch in Decmber. All physical books will not be going out until January but everyone will recieve their digital rewards in December. Immediatlety after issue four is dispatched in January issue five will be launched so there will not be too long of a gap. Issue five also completes the first arc. You will recieve regular updates throughout the Christmas period. If you have any further questions please contact me millicentbarnescomics@gmail.com
