Hi there! I'm Alex Heberling, creator of the magical girl comic series The Hues. I've been serializing TH online since 2013, have published two print collections of the comic, and now it's time for Volume 3!
The Hues Volume 3: EMBER will be a beautiful, full-color graphic novel totaling about 120 pages. Collecting chapters 7 through 10 of the webcomic, Volume 3 will cover Lauren's encounter with two new magical girls-- Salime and Audrey-- and her attempts to reunite with Sami, Andy, and Hannah back at their home base.
This book will also include an awesome Guest Art gallery-- with full-color illustrations of the Hues by some really fantastic cartoonists!

The Hues is about Samhita "Sami" Raju, 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 her hometown, which counts 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!

Risks and challenges
As of launch, 90% of the material for the book is ready to go, and I'll be paying the guest art contributors as soon as the funds are released to me. Once all the content is in my hands, I'll be sending it off to the book designer to be put together for printing.
This is my 4th Kickstarter campaign, all of which have been completely fulfilled, so I'm pretty well prepared for the logistics of printing and shipping hundreds of books!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
