Developed entirely by queer creators, Strange Waters emphasizes not only the freedom water represents but also the mysteries that lurk beneath.
Strange Waters is a fantastical collection of comics focusing on a single unifying theme: water. We're featuring 15 original stories totaling nearly 150 pages that explore the mystery and majesty of strange waters.
This is technically the third Kickstarter for this anthology, and we'd be remiss if we didn't address that. Strange Waters was originally created by Haunted Cosmos Press and was Kickstarted twice unsuccessfully. We at Arledge Comics saw a lot of potential in the volume, and we purchased Strange Waters from Haunted Cosmos Press in May of this year. Since the acquisition, Bryce and Jordaan have worked with the contributors in editing and polishing their submissions. We've also solicited a number of shorter comics to break up the volume.

The bulk of funds raised are going right back to the creators who made this book possible. We padded the shipping and printing numbers, so we're prepared in the off-chance something does happen. Any additional monies raised will be used to cover pay increases for contributors.
Risks and challenges
Arledge Comics has successfully funded 13 of our past 13 Kickstarters. We have a strong fulfillment history (right now we only have one campaign waiting fulfillment) and well established relationships with vendors.
There are always some risks in fulfillment being delayed - production on pins can run long, shipping can be delayed, ect - but we're very familiar with the risks and challenges of Kickstarter fulfillment and are committed to delivering a quality product in a reasonable amount of time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
