No Refunds: A Unversed Comics Anthology

$8,230

You Can Never Go Back...

No Refunds is the second book from Unversed Comics. It's a 224 page, 2 color, softcover comics anthology featuring 9 new artists from the Pacific Northwest College of Art, and 5 returning Unversed artists. All of them bringing new stories about how once you make a choice, you can never return to the way things were.

We have spent the past three months creating all the art for the book and the only step left is to get it printed. Once we reach our funding goal we are ready to send the files to the printer! 

A lot of the time sequels aren't as good as the original. The ones that fail seem to be the ones that try to directly rehash the original. Often, the ones that stand out are the ones that are able to take important elements of the original and take it in a new direction. 

That was our dilemma going into this project: How could we take what made the first Unversed anthology work and then build off that without just doing the exact same thing. What would be the things we could keep and what would be the things we would have to do make new? And that's how we came up with our theme for this year - you can never go back. As much as we might want to have a mulligan, the only real direction in life is forward.
