Hello,  I've been doing paintings and comic books for the last several years under the name WANDERWEIRD, and I'm raising funds for the printing of my second book: APOCRYPHON, a psy-Gnostic comic book meta-mythology.  Each page is hand-drawn and colored, ink and colored pencil on paper, presented at actual size (8.5"x11" to 11"x17").

The idea for the book was simple: If I was an old man living in a distant post-apocalyptic future, which stories and mythologies from the past would I retell to the next generation; how would they need to be changed, and which would need to be forgotten? I hoped to combine them all into a single story about the nature of stories, how they are altered by culture and retelling, and also how stories alter reality. 

BOOK ONE: GENESIS is a scientific creation story set into a mythological framework and explains who we are, how we got here, and why we're here. BOOK TWO: GOSPEL is a sandlepunk Christ/KRSHNA/Buddha/magical adept story about the dangers of questioning a narrative, and BOOK THREE: REVELATION is THE END. 

Thanks for checking this out, you can read the entire book on my website, free of charge at: "http://wanderweird.com/apocryphon.html"

Risks and challenges

I crowdfunded my last book project, and learned a lot about this process. I've made some changes from last time (more focus on shipping costs as a real expense, International was way more than expected last time, as well as already having a trusted printer working with me.) The book is completely finished, formatted, and ready to print, so risks should be minimal.
