WHAT IS PLAYLIST?

Playlist is a comic book anthology featuring short stories with text that comes solely from song lyrics. Playlist is a way for us to express the love and inspiration that music gives us, and to use our favorite music in new and clever ways.

Playlist has 200 pages of glorious black and white art from professional comic book artists! We're printing at standard trade size (10.25x6.625") with a high-quality printer to make sure that this book is as stunning as the stories inside. Because printing is pricey, most of the money we want to raise will go towards that. We can't raise this kind of dough on our own- it's only through Kickstarter that a project like this has the chance to see the light of day!

WHO ARE YOU?

The creators featured in Playlist are:

You should definitely check out our various portfolios, but if you want a quick overview, here's some work we've done in the past:

WHAT MUSIC ARE YOU SHOWCASING?

WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?

This is a unique opportunity to get your hands a beautiful independently-published comic book! You can't get this in a bookstore, and it won't be popping up on Amazon, so it's extra special. It's also a chance to get introduced to a boatload of fresh comic artists that you may not know about yet. If you're a fan of the music we're basing our work on, this will be a fun way to see some of your favorite songs visually interpreted. Also, check out our incentives over in the right-hand column- there is a range of exciting artistic gifts for you should you choose to support us. 

If we raise more than the amount that we need, we have a bunch of extra free gifts that we'd love to be able to give to our backers, so tell your friends!

We hope that you'll consider supporting Playlist. Thanks for giving us a chance!

Risks and challenges

There are only two possible risks involved in making Playlist a reality, and both of those are really unlikely to be a problem.

Our creators are drawing their stories as this Kickstarter is running. So the risk exists that one of us won't finish our contribution on time. But that risk seems silly to point out since we are professional artists who don't play childish games like missing deadlines. That said, best to mention it anyway.

The other possible risk is the printing process itself. Maybe the printer will blow up in a horrific freak accident? Maybe our shipment of books will get eaten by a dragon while it is in the mail? Again, it's really unlikely that this will be a problem, but it is out of our hands. We're comic book artists, not dragon-slayers. We hope you will understand.
