Kinship

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.

Here's one of the stories: Today's Catch.

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.
