The Anathema Issue 1 Graphic Comic Book Series

$4,838

63

Thank you for taking this time and interest in this new creator owned horror fantasy series.

The Anathema is a limited run, creator owned series from writer and illustrator Tom Savage, about a post war torn galaxy. In The Anathema, a universe of wizards, aliens, cybrogs, monsters and enchanted spirits are in a battle for survival against the tyranny of an evil demigod and lord of the dead known as Balam. During a crucial battle in the Genesis War, Balam was defeated and enslaved in a cursed relic known as The Anathema. His army of the undead are dangerously close to freeing their master and it is up to an elite group of misfits and soldiers know as The Resistance to stop him from returning.
PREVIEW THE ISSUE HERE!

After a successful promotional print, I am excited to get this new and "wildly original series", to a larger audience. In order to continue with the follow up issues, and the inevitable conclusion of the series, I need your help with the first production run. This will include a pressing of 1,500 copies of the 1st issue, posters, T-shirts, Sketch covers, packaging and mailing supplies as well as shipping costs. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns and thank you for your contribution!

The first issue is more then 38 full color pages!

Risks and challenges

The good news is the first issue has already been finished and the script for the remaining issues are already complete.

I have reached an agreement with the printer and they have assured me the deadline and delivery will be successful. In the event of any issues, I have a second printer on the ready as a back up.
