STRETCH GOAL #1
$5500 - Not only will everyone who has pledged for a physical reward receive a special kickstarter only print, but we'll also be upgrading the printed book! Print Ninja provided samples of various paper stocks and finishes, and in reaching this goal I can upgrade material and make these pages even more gorgeous than they already are!
ANTITHESIS follows the changing lives of two girls from very different parts of their home towns as they struggle to learn who they are and where they are from. As the girls uncover their histories, they discover that their parents and their homes hold greater secrets than either could have imagined.
To embrace what they've uncovered means to war against one another, but to maintain peace they must fight against their birthrights and embrace their inhuman natures.
ANTITHESIS is an 88 page graphic novel divided into four distinct chapters. It will be released in full color with letters provided by Weston Design Studio.
