A Comic Village Celebration - 'Project Autumn' Graphic Novel
NEWS: We've decided to turn this into a comic book series, rather than a one-off book... and you can PRE-ORDER NOW!
We've had a bit of a re-think...
We launched the Kickstarter campaign for Project Autumn at MCM Comic Con in May, during the first 'Comic Village Celebration' panel - We received an overwhelming response from those at the show, and also from many fellow Comic Village artists / creators that wanted to get involved...
Since then, we've had a bit of a review and decided to go in a different direction with the book - In place of creating a one-off graphic novel, with a very finite ending, we've opted to tell the story of Orion, our world-hopping anti-hero, in the form of a (hopefully) ongoing series of beautifully published, proper US style comic books!
And the great news is, you can PRE-ORDER THE 36-PAGE 'FIRST FALL' NOW via the BRAMBLETYNE Direct Web Store.
Wait, you're asking for less money?
Yep! The 'FIRST FALL' issue of PROJECT AUTUMN still features TEN amazing artists, and it's only £5... and that comes with a FREE ART CARD from the 'Comic Village Celebration ART CARD SERIES' that we're launching alongside this first issue.
We did also worry about meeting our funding goal, so rather than just scrape past the finishing line, we wanted more, and came up with the plan to switch to single issues. This change helps us get content out so much faster and also helps ensure we deliver on our hopes and dreams of celebrating as many artists as possible. Each issue, if we get to make more, will feature completely new worlds, each created with a unique Comic Village artist!
So, you actually just made Project Autumn's plans EVEN BIGGER?!
Pretty much! While you'll be only initially be able to get your hands on a 36-page comic book, in place of a 128-page graphic novel, the series has the potential to tell WAY MORE story than the stand-alone book ever could. The writer/creator of Project Autumn originally planned two whole books worth of content, so in this new format, we've got enough epic story planned out for 6+ single issues in the series!
But we still need YOUR HELP to make this first issue a success... only then can it continue and turn into the on-going series/saga that we'd love to create over the next few years.

Risks and challenges
Although we're a small and new publishing company, we've managed to create and deliver a popular comic book series with similar total page count once before, so we have a pretty good idea of the risks and challenges that await us!
We've got the production experience, we're super organised with our team of artists, and we're ready to take on this exciting challenge!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
