About this project
The Sum of Light is a genre bending comic series that transports the bleak cosmic horror of Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos into a modern day action adventure setting. In a story that spans continents and eons of time, creator Brian McCranie finds room to slip in tributes to other influences, including folk lore, science fiction, steam punk, film noir, manga and B horror films. A four issue limited comic series is planned, and will be re-released as a graphic novel with additional material when the arc is complete.
This Kickstarter campaign is intended to fund the completion of The Sum of Light Issue #2, with a limited print run including full color interiors and color covers.

If we go over goal we will launch a special web comic that will expand on The Sum of Light, introducing new characters and extended scenes that will be incorporated into the collected graphic novel.
Further stretch goals will fund expanded print runs and appearances at comic conventions.
Risks and challenges
I'm not just a Kickstarter campaigner, I'm also a backer. I take my obligation to fulfill my pledge rewards on time very seriously. And as a full-time freelance illustrator, it's crucial that I protect my reputation as an artist who delivers, by delivering what I promise.
As the writer, penciler, inker, and colorist on this project I can safely say that potential collaborator issues are minimized. I've been waiting more than 8 years to publish this story; there is really nothing I want more than to bring you Issue #2 of The Sum of Light.
If you would like to confirm that I'm not a flake, follow my artist page on Facebook. You'll get regular updates and exclusive work-in-progress posts. (You may find out that I'm a weirdo, but I'm a weirdo with a good work ethic and a solid track record.)
