Salt City Strangers: is a book about Utah pop culture, urban legends, and the things that go bump in the night. The Stranger the Better! If you're from Utah, you'll see them standing at Emo's grave and say "Hey, I've been there", and if you're not from Utah, you'll say "What the hell are they doing at that grave - these people are ridiculous!" And you'd be right. Click here to read "The story so far..."

The Artwork: In an effort to continuously improve the Strangers experience, we've upped the ante again in regards to the artwork.

We are very lucky and grateful to have Toni Doya of Spain as our new penciler! His dynamic pages and amazing panels are bringing the Strangers to life!

Spoiler alert: Backing at $60 get you an original art page! First come first serve choice of which page you want.

Guest star on the cover details: This level was so popular, we're doing it again. Back Strangers #3 at $100 and YOU (or a friend) get to be on the Kickstarter exclusive cover.

Risks and challenges

If unforeseen challenges arise after the project successfully funds, we will be transparent with our backers with exactly what has happened and what we intend to do about it. The biggest obstacle could be if I or Toni Doya, the artist, get so busy at work that drawing the book gets delayed. I will address that by taking vacation if need be to complete this book. Our plan is to continue Salt City Strangers as a series and to do that, we can't disappoint our fans!

We've already successfully finished issue #1 on our own, and #2 with a successful Kickstarter, so we're very familiar with the process and how everything works from ordering to fulfillment. Our team member Josh has also has success on Kickstarter and has warned us of possible pitfalls.

Salt City Strangers is a labor of love that we have fun doing regardless. We just want everyone along for the ride.
