Born of Democracy… Defender of Free Will… The Future Is Watching. After a fateful encounter one distant Halloween night, Future Girl discovers there's more to being a hero than a flashy costume or billowy cape. Aided by her faithful sidekick – the ever anxious Steadfast – and guided by The Horologist – an ancient and mysterious clock maker – Future Girl stops evil in its tracks no matter where or when it may strike. She is a warrior for truth, a beacon for justice, and defender of the human spirit.   

These are the adventures of Future Girl!   

Future Girl #2 (p. 1)
Future Girl #2 (p. 1)

Future Girl speaks to all of us. She is all of us. Future Girl reminds us that our future doesn’t belong to us alone, and that it is incumbent on each of us to remember that the choices we make, good and bad, affect more than just our own lives.     

Suitable for ages 4 to 400 (no, really, the story jumps through time, so it's possible), Future Girl really is an all-ages comic.  If you grew up watching Teen Titans or Captain Planet, or if you binge watch Where in the World is Carmen San Diego? with your kids, this comic is sure to please. Future Girl has depth, humor, and is action packed all at the same time, with life lessons people will take to heart.

Isaac Asimov's three rules of robotics form an ethical foundation for AI robot development - they are, in effect, AI law in the Future Girl universe.  But what if those laws were never written?  What would happen if someone went back in time and erased those rules? That's what Future Girl volume 1 is all about.

Can Future Girl and Steadfast right the timeline when it goes awry? Or will her arch-nemesis, Singularity, alter it forever? Will The Horologist give our heroes the guidance they need, or will he watch from afar as they forge their own path? 

Future Girl #1 is done.  That campaign's rewards were fulfilled in 2018.

Future Girl #2 is also done.  That's right.  It's in the can.  Rewards will go out as soon as humanly possible when this campaign is done.  

Future Girl #3 is in development now! 

What (Who?) is Future Girl?

FUTURE GIRL (the comic) is the brain child of Ross Dannenberg and Jenn Arledge. The first arc is slated to be six issues, with each issue ranging between 28 and 32 full color pages. 

Issue one was successfully Kickstarted in 2017, and we're back to raise funds for issue two! (sorry it took us so long)

The Future Girl Team

On January 20, 2016, the US inaugurated a president unlike any other.  On January 21, 2016, the Women's March in Washington, DC, was bigger than his inauguration (much to his chagrin).  During that march, a friend took this photo (© Stephen Laico 2016):

Who is Future Girl?
Who is Future Girl?

As I looked at that picture, I thought to myself, wow, that girl is a superhero, standing up for what she believes in, for what she believes is right, reminding us not only that history will be our judge, but also that our children have to live with the consequences of our choices. Then it hit me... what if she really was a superhero from our future, watching us, judging us, maybe even trying to help us? 

And thus, Future Girl was born.

Standard Edition - An issue listed as standard edition will be the comic book store version of the issue, with a standard front cover and an advertisement on the back cover. Unless you buy the Kickstarter or Variant edition(s) now, this will be only version you can buy from comic book stores.

Kickstarter Edition - An issue listed as a Kickstarter edition will have a wraparound cover extending the standard front cover around and onto the back cover as well.  Kickstarter editions can only be purchased via a Kickstarter campaign, whether it be this one or a future campaign.

Variant Edition - An issue listed as a variant cover or variant edition will have a variant wraparound cover.  Variant editions are Kickstarter exclusives, and can only be purchased during THIS Kickstarter.  We only do one print run of these. 

This issue's variant cover is illustrated by Missy Pena (Steven Universe).

Risks and challenges

Future Girl has already seen one successfully funded and fulfilled Kickstarter campaign. We're partnered with Arledge Comics, who has a 10 for 10 track record on Kickstarter. We have a small, yet dedicated crew ready to make this campaign another success.

Issue two is done. Colored, lettered, and ready for printing. We're working with a printer we have a positive, longstanding relationship with. So we don't foresee any delay in printing or shipping.
