Altar Girl - Book 2

$4,157

96

Ashley Altars is a school-girl with a major crush; Seth Charming died in the 1920s... and each of them holds one of the two keys to Heaven and Earth!

Altar Girl is a shoujo manga style comic created by Kata Kane. ALTAR GIRL - BOOK 2 will be a collection of Chapters 4, 5 and 6 (over 60 pages of the story) with new & improved artwork over the web version, including all-new cover art. Book 1 showed how great a print version of this comic can be, and with your help we could make Book 2 even better, with bonus materials like Character Sheets, Mini-Comics, and more!

In Book 2, the mysterious half-demon known as Kami has come to St. Tail, and she’s getting dangerously close to Ashley. Sera and Cherry must put their angelic powers to the test in order to prevent Kami from obtaining the keys and becoming a full demon!

Meanwhile, Seth makes good on his promise to set up Ashley with her crush Adam, but when Seth looks in to Ashley’s eyes, he can’t help but remember the unrequited love of his past: Alice Hart. Not to mention, Ashley’s been having some really weird dreams about another key-bearing girl... but she has no eyes! ...Life is still tough for the Altar Girl!

For those who may have missed Book 1 and want to catch up before Book 2 -- don't worry! You have the choice to pre-order the ALTAR GIRL BOOK BUNDLE: copies of Book 1 & Book 2, as downloadable PDFs or in spectacularly printed books! If you only want to pre-order Book 2 or only Book 1, you still have that option as well!

Customize your package with ALTAR GIRL GOODIES! Just choose the package from the rewards options, or add any of the above amounts to your final order ($5 through $20). Once we've reached funding, you will receive a survey to get all the goodies you want!

NEW CHARMS to go with Book 2: Angelic Wings and Ashley's key! Get one or both, but we may even get the chance to unlock more designs through stretch goals.

INTRODUCING ST. TAIL IDs! Get a unique digital commission of yourself as a St. Tail Student or Faculty. This reward includes a copy of your digital portrait to use as an icon, a cute digital St. Tail ID card, with YOUR NAME & PIC displayed in Book 2 on the St. Tail Yearbook Page.

COMMISSIONS: Lots of options and lots of fun! Choose any Altar Girl character or your favorite pairing, then decide if it should be drawn original or digital. It'll be shipped to you with your rewards and signed by Kata!

Kata Kane is the artist and writer of ALTAR GIRL. She works as a freelance illustrator & designer in Baltimore, MD. ALTAR GIRL originally ran from 2002 - 2004 on Keenspace (now ComicGenesis). The current version of ALTAR GIRL is all new re-draw that began in July 2012.

ALTAR GIRL is a comic I have had in my heart for a very long time, and nothing has made me happier than to share this story with you. I was honored by your praise for Book 1, and humbly hope that you will continue to support this self-published title, and enjoy the next exciting installment of Book 2! We're just getting started!

Risks and challenges

This is my second Kickstarter, and wow, I couldn't have asked for kinder folks to back Altar Girl - Book 1! I was able to fulfill everyone's rewards with time to spare, and no one's copy got damaged or lost in the mail. I was extremely pleased with the print job, and plan to work together with the same printer now that we've established a good relationship.

I've never made acrylic Charms before, but I think my designs are pretty solid and I've already sourced pricing with Ink It Labs. They've got a great reputation and come recommended, so it should go smoothly!

My hope is that with Book 2, every step will work better than ever. I'm always available to communicate with backers, and I will continue to work hard to make this another great installment in the Altar Girl series!
