Kinship collects short story comics that Karen Luk has drawn and written over the past years. Some have been published as part of the Couscous Collective anthologies and some will make their first print debut in this collection.
The book is over 40 pages long with a square binding, sized at six by nine inches. This matches the same dimensions as the previous short story comics collection, Encounters. Encounters has 48 pages of watercolor painted comics and 10 stories total. Both books feature a card stock cover and 80# paper for the interior pages. Kinship is drawn with traditional and digital inking techniques and colored digitally.
No stretch goals are planned - just 100 of Kinship collected comics to read and enjoy! Only 100 will be printed exclusively for this campaign.
Here's one of the stories: Today's Catch.
Four more stories: Moon Hunt, Breathe, Sapling, and Not All Monsters are online here to preview the book.
Let's Make 100 Kinship happen with your support!

Risks and challenges
This is my sixth Kickstarter and I have fulfilled them all. I've backed many projects, so I'm very familiar with expectations and delays. To mitigate delays, I am using a US based printer. I will keep you up to date with project's progress and answer any questions about the project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
