321: Fast Comics is a comic book anthology that presents a storytelling challenge where artists and writers must come up with short comic stories that always have:

3 Pages
2 Characters
1 Twist Ending

Get lost in an exotic jungle...
Get lost in an exotic jungle...

As long as the above rules are respected, anything goes: any genre, any characters, any situation. The challenge is always to surprise readers at the turn of three pages.

Visit the distant past...
Visit the distant past...

And that's exactly what we have done with this book, we have put together twenty one (21) short stories featuring different genres from fantasy to steampunk, from western to sci-fi, from daily life to the biggest adventures!

Or the far future...
Or the far future...

Felipe, who recently won one of the most prestigious comic book awards in Brazil as "Best Writer" for his work on the "321: Fast Comics Vol. 1", put together a dream team of artists and guest writers to take part in this project with him.

They come from top titles at Marvel, DC Comics, Dark Horse, Image, Dynamite and other publishers.

The full list of Guest Artists & Writers:

Lucas Leibholz, Geraldo Borges, Guilherme Balbi, Rodney Buchemi, Thony Silas, Carlos Ruas, Rafael De Latorre, Fabiano Neves, Ig Guara, Felipe Watanabe, Cris Bolson, Vitor Cafaggi, Romi Carlos, Cris Peter, Wilton Santos, Gustavo Borges, Matias Streib, Luciano Salles, Mario Cau, Marcelo Maiolo, Zork Marinero, Adriano Augusto, Caio Yo, Clonerh Kimura, Ander Zarate, Omar Viñole, Mat Lopes, Teo Deffectx, Ivan Nunes, Carlos Estefan, Marcos Botelho, Renato Almeida, Guilherme Bon, Fábio Bueno & Pietro Progetti.

The book was released in Brazil after a successful local crowdfunding and we're now looking to do the same for a world wide debut completely in English.

We've partnered up with Comixology for the Digital Rewards!

Risks and challenges

Having run three crowdfunding campaigns in Brazil, I am fully aware of the obstacles and pitfalls a project might face even after it is successfully funded, from delays in production to high post office costs to properly formatting the book to print.

I have dealt with all that in the past and I'm confident I have learned through trial and error how to avoid these in the future. The "321: Fast Comics" biggest advantage to overcome future challenges is that it's 100% complete and ready to go to print.

This book was successfully crowdfunded in Brazil last year and all the backers already received their rewards, over 750 of them. It is also already available on Comixology so the digital deliveries will happen as soon as the project is funded, leaving only the printing of the book and the shipping.

We already have a printer lined up with a pre-approved budget and schedule. We are ready to publish the "321: Fast Comics" and ensure it arrives at your given address in the next few weeks, all we need now is your backing.

Thank you!
Felipe
