Both books contain a full-colour illustration gallery. Here's a sample of what you'll find.
Diskordia is a surreal fantasy webcomic that explores themes such as the nature of reality, consciousness and self-determination. It does so with equal doses of hilarity, whimsy and mind numbing horror.
The main story follows Jackal Black, a cynical and sarcastic young man as he is yanked from his dull life into the bizarre dreamtime; a transit hub between dimensions. He will travel through these strange and varied realms encountering curiously odd creatures and terrifying foes while discovering the true horrific and baffling nature of the world he thought he knew.
This synopsis only really covers the starting point of the series. It has since evolved into a sprawling epic with many fascinating and idiosyncratic characters and scenarios.
'Diskordia is a beautifully twisted work of art and one that needs to be experienced by anyone who is a fan of HP Lovecraft and Lewis Carol.' -The Pulp Media.
***Due to the series' uncompromising nature featuring nudity, violence, harsh language and challenging themes Diskordia is recommended for mature audiences only***
The goal of this kickstarter is to print the second book in the series as a 200 page deluxe hardcover. It collects issues 6-9 which is the concluding half of the first major story arc 'Feels Like Falling' It will also include an illustration gallery and more content depending on stretch goals.
Also available to purchase through this campaign is Diskordia Book 1 which collects issues 1-5, with an illustration gallery and the exclusive extra story 'Tears' included.
Both books retail at $30 USD but are on sale for the special price of $25 through this kickstarter.

Risks and challenges
As with the last book. All of the creative work is done. I just need funds for production and shipping. The last campaign ran into some issues with my local customs which resulted in a significant delay of several months. That's been taken care of now though and it's on schedule.
I've learned a lot from the last campaign and have the backing of people with even more experience. Even so I can't promise that unforeseen delays won't happen. That's just the nature of the business i'm afraid. What I can promise, though is complete transparency and constant updates every step of the way just as I did with the last project. No one is more invested in the successful completion of this campaign than I am. And a campaign isn't complete until every reward has been delivered.
