Other Worlds...

...is a collection of short stories. I wrote 'em, hand-picked some of the best local artists I could find (like the legendary Mike Lawrence, along with greats Kevin Dryad, Tom Jacobs and Terry Blas), hired 'em...and made a comic series! I pulled off three issues of material and even snagged some extra stories to boot (from the incredible Grace Allison and Tym Godek). And then I decided to go a bit further...

the Other Worlds tpb: Maps and Legends

Instead of going with an online printer for the trade paperback, I opted to do a special printing using a local press. And that's where this Kickstarter campaign comes in. With your help, I can deliver professionally printed, signed and sketched graphic novels to your door...and you can help me offset the cost of an almost 50% increase in production costs to get copies together for ECCC and Stumptown. Together, we can stay local and make the Other Worlds pages shine on the highest quality paper possible!

Mike Lawrence, FTW

 Mike, bless his heart, volunteered to sketch the special Kickstarter print run. They will be limited to 100 copies, with a few extra bundled with original art or featuring specialty sketches! I will sign 'em too, but frankly, MIKE LAWRENCE, PEOPLE!

Oh, you say you want original art and buttons? DEAL!

So, we have special buttons from Other Worlds #1: The Robot Library, for you too. But if that's not enough, I have TONS of art from each main story for you as well, should you wish to contribute at a higher level. It's here for you to peruse: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.379807998702615.109066.188757024474381&type=1

Thanks for your help!

best,
