About this project

WHAT THE CITY IN THE SEA IS ABOUT:

This is a story about Edgar Allan Poe, his life and work, and not just another adaptation of one of his most famous tales, this is also a fantasy story, with mystery, love and horror… A story full of references to some of the details of his life, thoughts, poems, tales, essay and novel.

In the story, Poe, tired of his misfortune, leaves from Baltimore to Liverpool in a beautiful clipper. There, Lenore is waiting to marry him and begin a new life together. But suddenly, a huge storm approaches the ship, and something terrible happens...

DO YOU WANT TO TRY SOME OF THE SCENES WITH THE WEB DEMO PREVIEW OF THE PRODUCT? 

We love the classic printed version of graphic novels, but we also want to create a modern touchable interactive comic for tablet devices. For this advanced digital edition, we have music, sound effects, animations, and hidden scenes.

Just click on the link and please wait until the demo is loaded, it may take some seconds depending on your connection… The final product will load without any delay locally on your tablet.

The city in the sea demo preview.

WHERE THE MONEY GOES: 

The team is made up of three people, Andrés, a fine arts teacher from Salamanca, Spain, who is the Illustrator; Roisin, an Irish product manager from Dublin, who takes care of the English translation of the book, and me, the IT man, and also the music composer and author of the screenplay. We need your help for creating our final product, for printing and distribution, and software licenses. This involves: music recording and processing, sound effects, animation, illustration, and digital publishing tablet technologies.

The team.

Risks and challenges

SHIPMENTS

Shipments will be done with Correos, the national and most important Spanish company with a proven track record in postal services worldwide.

IBOOK DISTRIBUTION

We decided to avoid risks with our own digital distribution of the products, so we don't depend on any review process from the Applestore / ibooks platform. You will get an ibook file ready to open on your iPad / Mac.

We are committed to keeping you informed of our progress in the months following the campaign.

Thanks for supporting us!
