From Nothing, Something comes. Espers is a creation mythology. Most fantasy stories begin in the waning days of magical power, at their height, or on some damn crusade to reclaim a lost era. This story isn't that. This story is a beginning. This is a comic of Genesis. There was nothing, not even void. There was only the infinite regress, and his name...was Lotin, the great serpent.

Of course there is the book, but we also have some really cool extra rewards. The book itself is a 22 page story, with 6 pages of extra content. It will be printed by Printninja, So you know it will be very high quality.
The shirts will come in varying sizes, and I will ask you for yours after the Kickstarter ends. I try and use higher quality T-shirt materials so they are smooth, just like Melissa's art. :)
The art prints consist of the variant covers printed on very high quality glossy card stock. You can see the art above of the two variant cover poster options, and the Cover art is at the start of this Kickstarter.
The sticker is a 3x3 section of the cover art. It features the sky goddess Ne'lil.
I have done a few similar Kickstarters now, so I have the budget down pat. The majority of the funds, around $2000 will go to the art and creation team. Most of the rest will go to Printninja for the 1,200 copies of Espers, and their shipping/fulfillment services. The remainder will go to fees.
Risks and challenges
The book is almost finished! We just need the funds to pay our art team a fair wage, and print and ship the book. I have been running Kickstarters for awhile, and everyone has been getting their books just fine. Barring anything awful happening, everything should be smooth.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
