ARCANE SALLY & MR. STEAM is an original supernatural steampunk mystery in the form of a ten issue comic book miniseries.In Victorian England, Lord Percival Cawthorne, a rogue agent of the British Crown, and his faithful manservant Runnymede, must stop an elusive mastermind from unleashing Lewis Carroll’s most dangerous mathematical theories and altering the very nature of reality.

The art is by Jefferson Costa, a prolific, award-winning comic book artist and animator from São Paulo, Brazil. He was most recently published in the U.S. in the anthology Outlaw Territory Vol. 3 (Image); in Brazil his La Dansarina was published to critical acclaim in 2015.
In other words, we're two experienced, dedicated, and proven creators, and you can be sure Arcane Sally & Mr. Steam is going to be a great story and a beautiful book! Take a look!
We have already completed Issue #1. For this Kickstarter, we are asking for some help TO MAKE ISSUE #2.
It costs approximately $250 to produce ONE PAGE of drawn, inked, colored and lettered artwork. We are trying to raise as much as we can to produce as much as we can. Every bit counts.

Risks and challenges
Issue #1 is finished; therefore the digital version will be shipped immediately and the physical copy within 2-3 weeks. For those who wish to be "sponsors," the shipment of subsequent issues cannot be guaranteed within a more specific time frame other than sometime within the next two years. Again, it depends on the money we can raise. That said, we are posting new pages every week and plodding along such that we are confident to finish this project within the next to years. Thanks for your understanding, patience, and support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
