Angora is a sheltered young girl who is sent on a mission: to find the center. Her journey will take her from the depths of the southern jungles to the deceptive warmth of the desert cities, to the bitter peaks of the Northern Territories where a new war has broken out after years of uneasy peace.
And as the bonds of civilization slowly weaken, monstrous powers with their own motivations walk the earth once more... but who will be left to inherit it?
The Meek is a long-format, character driven adventure about the gray areas between the good and bad, revenge and forgiveness, life and death. I am overjoyed to finally make a print version of the comic available to readers old and new :]
For years, the only way to enjoy the entirety of The Meek has been online, through the webcomic format. Now, for the first time ever, I will be printing the first three chapters- nearly 150 full-color comic pages- for readers to enjoy in physical form.
The art and formatting has been fully refreshed for this volume to bring you the best looking version of the comic that has ever existed. The books will also feature all-new bonus material that has never been available before.
Anyone who has followed my work for a while knows I have notoriously resisted merchandising my work. But in honor of my first Kickstarter, I am excited to introduce some stretch goals and special rewards:
Wallpaper- A high resolution wallpaper of the new wraparound cover art made for this book
Postcard - A 5x7 thank-you postcard featuring art from one of the amazing contributing artists
- Mini Print Pack - A set of Limited Edition 5x7 prints featuring art by some of the most incredible artists working today. New artists and prints will be added to the postcard tier as our stretch goals unlock!
Enamel Pin- Limited Edition enamel pin of Mocheril, the first in a planned series
- Signed book & a character sketch - A very limited tier for you to get your books signed by me and received a random 4x6 character sketch tucked inside. Since I rarely attend conventions, this is your best chance for a personalized item!
- Tessa Stone: Not Drunk Enough, Buzz!
- Gene Ha: JLA, Top Ten, Mae
- Joy Ang: Adventure Time, The Anthology Project
- Melita Curphy: Miss Monster
- Ariel Ries: Witchy
- Heather Campbell: Valve, Legend of Korra comics
Additionally, as we meet our stretch goals, the physical quality of the book will increase as well with gloss, french flaps and more! These additions will not come at any extra cost to you; as we unlock our stretch goals, the book in your reward tier will simply become more beautiful.
About the creator
I am a biologist, an educator, and a self-taught independent artist.
I've been working on this comic in one form or another since my early teens, and have been hosting and posting the comic online for readers to enjoy for free since 2007. The response to my work throughout the years has been incredibly gratifying. I am so thankful for your readership, and excited to be able to finally give you a physical copy of the comic that means so much to me.
This KS would not be possible without the kind support of
- Taneka Stotts (project manager)
- all of the incredible postcard artists
- Rhiannon Rasmussen-Silverstein
- Christina McKenzie
- Shirley Jackson
- Jared Petker
- fabulous readers such as yourself!
Risks and challenges
I've mitigated the risks on my first print project by hiring an experienced project manager and production team with several successful AND beautiful Kickstarter book projects under their belt. This book is guaranteed to be the highest quality product possible.
The comic pages have been drawn, a printer is primed and ready to go, and I have been thoroughly advised on how to fulfill your orders efficiently once the printed books have been approved.
In short, I am doing everything I can to make this a great experience for me and for you! Please feel free to PM if you have any specific questions.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
