About

BURN Chapter 2: A 1950s Romance Drama series

$1,152

70

BURN is an ongoing, romance, drama comic from Amanda  Johnson and Jacob Bouvet. This campaign is for a print edition of the  already complete second chapter of the story.  

BURN is the story of Ben and Charlie,  a gay couple in the 1950s. After the violent encounter with a couple of good-old-boys in the last issue, our couple and their compatriots find themselves on the run with the law not far behind. 

BURN is a digital first series that we publish on LINE  Webtoon's Discover platform. In the year we have been releasing on the platform, we've gained over three thousand subscribers. A new page is posted every Tuesday so, be sure to subscribe and follow along at burncomic.com!  


The book itself will be a 28 page, saddle-stitched comic book with blue and white interiors (with the exception of a couple of full-color pages) and a pink and blue cover. 

Pin-up by the wonderful Kathi B.

 This entire second chapter is 100% complete, and the book is ready to be sent to the printer as soon as the campaign ends.  The book and other rewards (excluding original art pieces) will be  printed locally in my hometown of Springfield, IL to ensure a quick  turnaround time for reward fulfillment.   

Below are some examples of the outstanding rewards you can get as a part  of this campaign. Some rewards are limited in quantity, so don't sleep on them.
