Louisville Cartoonist Society - Who We Are
The Louisville Cartoonist Society (LCS) is a Louisville, Kentucky-based independent comics group, formed in 2009 by a group of artists who all shared the same passion… making comics. We encourage the creation of comics and help local artists connect with their audience. Our group is made up of amateur cartoonists and aspiring artists who all work *real* jobs, have families and stay up late drawing and creating comic books!
- To Nicmor, Louisville-based EDM all-star, for allowing us to use his music in our video.

- To Josh Hoeppner for the script and writing help.
- To Eric "Odin" Vancza for helping out with some cool 3D book creations.
- To all the LCS members who helped get this thing started.
Risks and challenges
Risks are minimal and we do not anticipate any issues. All the artwork is ready and the printer is ready for us. There could be delays related to the print schedule or file preparation, but we have worked through such things before and have experience working through projects of this type. This is our 5th anthology project and our second Kickstarter project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
