Having difficulty remembering important dates or people's names? Is it often that, upon entering a room, you find yourself puzzled as to what brought you there? Does studying for academic exams seem impossible? Is general forgetfulness causing difficulties at work or amongst friends and loved ones?

Perhaps you should try MEMORY.

Gaze upon the visual wonders of 40+ independent artists from across the globe as they all sequentially interpret cognitive neuroscience together in one book for your reading pleasure. 

"...it is all a matter of love; the more you love a memory, the stronger and stranger it becomes." - Vladimir Nabakov

Memory and it's effects on the perception of reality itself has been the central fascination of the finest contemporary artists and storytellers, with particular interest taken within the genres of surrealism and science-fiction. Memory and it's loss are also arguably the core factor behind what can lead to a person's inability to notice relatively long periods of time passing without returning, let alone watching, a copy of Miller's Crossing after borrowing it five years ago, Bill.

The book is a 180 page 6"x9" trade paperback in color. 300 books or more will be printed.

The book is complete and printer quotes are lined up. A possible stretch goal might be an upgrade in printing/book format, if such a decision agreed upon by the artists involved.

Additional rewards for other preorders/donations include the options of receiving digital comics downloads, the solo comics, minicomics, zines, and art prints of the artists involved, as well as original artworks and commissions.

All excess funds go towards paying the artists involved.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

the only challenge that may possibly arise would be an increased waiting time during the printing process.
