Welcome to the Sweet Heart Issue #2 Kickstarter!
EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.
Sweet Heart #2 has already been drawn. With your help, the funds from this project will go toward some awesome Cover Art and having these pages colored and lettered before helping offset the printing costs.
Sweet Heart #2 is a 24 page, full color, original comic drawn by Francesco Iaquinta, colored by Maco Pagnotta, lettered by Saida Temofonte, and written by me, Dillon Gilbertson. This is the second issue of a fully written five part mini-series.
As a Type-1 diabetic, I've projected my own fears and difficulties into the lives of these characters. It follows you wherever you go and the most dangerous thing you can do is forget that it is there. While the monsters function as exaggerated avatars for the disease, the fears and trauma they inflict are real in every sense. Diabetes affects 29 million people in the United States, but the struggles of those who support them are rarely told. “Sweet Heart” is written to connect with everyone who has been affected by it. Indeed, we’ve even included two breeds of the same monster to reflect the different struggles between Type-1 and Type-2 Diabetes.
All that being said, while diabetes is the 1:1 comparison, the story is also relatable to a number of health/psychological/personal issues that may constantly affect one's well-being. This is a book for anyone who has a “monster” that’s followed them their whole life.
