Enrica Jang and Alex Cormack are funding Issue #1 (24-pages, full color) of a brand new comic series! We're on track to some pretty sweet stretch goals, and you can check out the PREVIEW PAGES below to see 6 pages from the new series!
A rookie train conductor is haunted by the ghost of an annoying goth princess who threw herself in front of his commuter train. She swears her death was a murder made to look like a suicide and she won’t “cross over” and leave him alone until he helps solve her case.
CROSSING will be a six-issue mini-series, and we're here on Kickstarter to print and distribute Issue #1. The comic is 24 story pages, full color, to be published digitally and in print. Despite some pretty mature, heavy-hitting themes (crime, suicide, railroad safety) the series is a comedy about two people who wouldn't like each other under normal circumstances--much less paranormal--but have to find a way to work together if they ever want to be free of each other.
Production for this first issue is already underway, and a print run of 1000 copies is guaranteed when we hit 100% funding. Script for the entire series is complete, as well as character design, and we'll be rolling straight into Issue #2 after we're funded. This series is happening, people, but we need you to help us get to the other side!

Risks and challenges
Funds from this campaign toward the actual cost of printing and shipping the comic and all rewards only. The production team is already at work on the series, and their work is not contingent on this funding.
Printing and shipping are the only concerns with this project. Production on CROSSING is well underway, and will conclude in July. Red Stylo has a proven track record of delivering comics (both on Kickstarter and on our own--just check out our back-catalog!), and we have collaborated with this printer in the past. The quality of their product is OUTSTANDING, and the print order will be placed within days of funding.
While our print order is being run, Red Stylo’s team will prep rewards for shipping, including comics codes and PDFs. Our goal amount covers the cost of printing and shipping books to Red Stylo's warehouse only, but we have chosen rewards and shipping options within our regular production budget and the cost of these items has been considered and accounted for.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
