Hi there! My name is Alex Heberling (she/her) and I’m a comic artist and colorist. I’m the creator of The Hues, the rainbow-themed magical girls who punch aliens! 

I’ve been publishing The Hues since 2013, and there are over 350 pages you can read online!  In 2015 and 2016, you folks helped me bring Volume 1 and 2 to life, respectively, and now it’s time for book three! 

The Hues Volume 3: EMBER will be a beautiful, full-color volume totaling about 150 pages of magical girl goodness. The cover will be a matte finish with spot gloss-- and features Hannah, our shy fire-wielder!

Collecting chapters 7 through 11 of the webcomic, TH Volume 3 follows Lauren's encounter with two new magical girls-- Salime and Audrey-- and her attempt to reunite with Sami, Andy, and Hannah back at the house.

The Hues is the story of Sami, a 17-year-old who has seen visions of a peculiar hexagram in her dreams her entire life.  A strange apparition of the hexagram appears in the sky over Columbus, counting down to the arrival of an alien invasion that devastates the city.

It's up to her and her fellow teammates to find each other, master their magical powers, and protect the city's survivors from the terrifying visitors.  The cast features a wide variety of race, body type, sexuality, and personality that I think you'll enjoy!

The big long list of tiers down the right of the page might be a little daunting, so here’s a handy, more organized guide to what I’ve got on offer! 

Each and every backer who pledges a dollar or more gets the wallpaper set!

For $5, you get to choose between a new TH logo sticker or a signed postcard of the book’s cover art! If you want both items, just add $5 to your pledge! Both are included in every physical reward tier, in any case. :)

Digital-only options! 

Books, books, books! If you need a different number/combination of books, keep scrolling for info about Add-On Rewards. 

 My first enamel pin! It’ll be 1” soft enamel with black finish. Any tier at or above $50 automatically comes with a pin!

The pin has a stretch goal too!! I really hope we can hit it, because it will put this little pin over the top, in my opinion. Stay tuned...

A Kickstarter tradition! If you’ve been wanting art from me, now is an excellent time. For my commission portfolio, click here.

All pledges over $50 will be listed in the Acknowledgements! All $50+ reward tiers are automatically included!

Want to customize your rewards? Add the dollar amount to your pledge, and after the campaign, I’ll be partnering with a fulfillment service to take care of it!

Projected Timeline:

July 23-24: Campaign launch

Aug 22: Campaign ends

Sept 6-9: Receive funds, pay for all the things

Oct TBA: Books arrive

Nov TBA: Fulfillment begins

Fulfillment will take place during November and December, so everyone should have their books in time for the winter holidays!

Keep an eye on the campaign updates for info on stretch goals!

So what are you waiting for??

Let’s make this thing!

Risks and challenges

This ain't my first rodeo. I have three funded projects under my belt already, and it's just a matter of getting it funded!

Still, I am just one single person. If it blows up and I get a lot more backers than I expect, luckily there is now an infrastructure (fulfillment companies, payment processors, shipping apps, etc.) built up around Kickstarter creators that I can turn to if I need more help.
