The Human Beings is a new full colour U.S. size comic book from Monologue creator SJMcCune. Each issue is in an anthology style and will have a selection of stories. The characters and places will reoccur, (sometimes in the same issue, sometimes just in the background later), creating a fully realised world. In this first issue the stories range from the alt-reality tale The Agreement to the slice-of-life Not Working. Everything is interspersed with random one-pagers and illustrations to form a book unlike anything out there at the moment. The format is influenced by great 1990s books like Eightball, Jim, and Yummy Fur but the content is uniquely freaky. The creative freedom of The Human Beings is what makes it. In fact after reading The Human Beings if you know of a similar book, send it to me, and I'll give you your money back. Like all my Kickstarters all work is already complete and there are prints, posters, tees, commissions, and huge back catalogue packages available in the rewards. If you backed me before many thanks and this one will be no different. In fact everything is due to go out even quicker because I plan on issue two following hot on its heels. Hope you like what's on offer below and as always if you've any questions please get in touch - easiest way is twitter where there's also links to reviews, a creator profile, the weekly Reading List mailer, & general nonsense etc all @StuartMcCune.

Risks and challenges

The Human Beings will be my sixth Kickstarter in under 18 months and each previous campaign was fulfilled on schedule with books going out as quickly as four weeks after the campaign finished. The response from backers both on Kickstarter and through social media has been incredibly positive and supportive. I am confident that once more I can continue to supply the quality and reliability all my previous backers have come to expect. If you have any questions please feel free to email me here on Kickstarter or via millicentbarnescomics@gmail.com.
Thanks,
Stuart.
