These stories feature the perspectives of characters that live in the area where START AGAIN is set, and the impact that a superhero existing has on their lives.

The EXPANDED UNIVERSE is graphic in every sense of the word, and is not suitable for people below the age of 18.
Additional funds after our stretch goals will be used to pay higher page rates to the remastering team.
START AGAIN is a superhero boy meets girls story that tackles themes such as mental health, the cost of fame, and online harassment in the modern social media driven world.
What was remastered, and why?
The first issue is COMPLETELY sold out, so we decided instead of just a basic reprint we'd make some adjustments.
What we did:
We’ve remastered every single page to feature new and improved lettering. This and future issues will now have a professionally designed graphics identity. Including new logo design and interiors. We redesigned everything so that the project can be the highest quality possible, and to match the standards of mainstream comics.
START AGAIN #1 Remastered is fully completed digitally, and is ready to print if we make our goal. All other rewards are also ready. We will start printing immediately, and we will ship as soon as the issues arrive.

Toni Doya is the Spanish artist on this project, and recently inked IDW's BACK TO THE FUTURE. A lover of all things Marvel, Toni spend many years drawing alternate endings to stories he enjoyed reading featuring iconic characters. Now he pursues his lifelong dream of drawing for the company!
Sean Callahan is the American colourist on our team. His colours can be found on the shelves of comic stores worldwide via Action Lab's STRAY. He's also won awards for his colouring on Reddit.
Archie Dait is the British editor of our latest work. Her attention to detail, and relentless dedication to making sure the script is as authentic as possible, is the reason the project has rated so highly. She's also an avid Overwatch player.
If we are lucky enough to reach our goal additional funds will be used to pay a larger page rate to the remastering team per page.
Risks and challenges
This will be our seventh Kickstarter, and we've learned from each and every one. Here is what I've done to ensure a quality campaign:
+ All the books are completed, and only START AGAIN #1 Remastered needs sending to the printer. If we get funding we'll do that right away!
+ We have just five reward tiers. This is done so that they are easy to organise and fulfil. Quality, not quantity.
+ We get all our shipping supplies from our friend Lee at Inter-Comics in the UK. This means out packaging is what you'd expect from a top online retailer. BAGGED AND BOARDED!
+ We answer all questions in the comment section, but if you want to talk privately you can message us, any time, on here or via firstname.lastname@example.org. Ask us anything!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
