The past, the present, the future bleed into one singular moment. Genres of every stripe, art styles of every mark. Dimension jumpers, convention attendees, crime fighting crusaders, little Vikings, and, even little old ladies converge into one comic anthology. 

In 2012 a group of comic writers, artists, and fans went to an intimate convention in Las Vegas called Morrison Con. Inspired by three days of art, story, and talk of achieving other planes of existence, a small group decided to come together to produce an anthology like no other. 

Countdown Until Now is a thrilling, eclectic mix of talent, genres and stories. Our team of nearly twenty creators from all walks of life have a tale to tell. Some of us wrote about our time together, others had their own worlds that needed exploring. We're bound by the madness we experienced together, and let us share it with you with our collection of 11 stories.

  • A print run of 500 of our 11 story, 63 page book (printed in the USA on premium paper)
  • Rewards (bookmarks, postcards, posters, bookplates) 
  • Shippin’ your stuff 
  • Amazon/Kickstarter’s take 
  • Our lovely production artist 

Risks and challenges

While there are always risks associated with making a comic, we have all of our pages, our plan all laid out, and all we need now is the funding to print. We're confident that we can accomplish this easily with your help funding us.
