Help us print the next two issues in this six-part series and bring CROSSING to Comic Con International in San Diego this July! New to the series? We included preview pages from all three issues below.
This is a campaign to fund TWO new issues in this series. CROSSING will be a six-issue mini-series, and we're here on Kickstarter to print and distribute Issues #2 and #3. Each comic is 24 story pages, full color, to be published digitally and in print. Production is nearly complete and it's almost time to hit 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. Both issues are now 100% complete, and a print run of 500 copies each is guaranteed when we hit 100% funding. Script for the entire series is complete and we'll be rolling straight into Issues #4 - 6 after we're funded. This series is happening, people, but we need you to help us get to the other side!

Risks and challenges
Crushing and debilitating lack of confidence by the series creator. Issue #1 was so well received, it's been like pulling teeth to get to a place where she felt like the next issues were ready. But F-that! This is an awesome series and we have to kick in now or forget the whole thing. This train is back on track!
As for any other challenges...art for these issues is complete, and we're using all funds to print the issue and send rewards--additional funds will be applied to production costs for the remainder of the series. ALL funds go toward production, whether printing or paying the talented artists who are giving this project an afterlife.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
