OUR WAR - The Truth Untold 

SYNOPSIS: OUR WAR is a unique series about revolution and the consequences thereof. Set in a not-too-distant and all-too-possible future, where the 2008 global economic crisis was taken to its logical conclusion, OUR WAR tells the story of the measures ordinary people will take to maintain a semblance of normality in chaotic times. Through financial collapse, political polarization, widespread violence, and the abandonment of law and order, OUR WAR follows a former farm boy and reluctant activist named Nestor and Emma, his unlikely travel companion. The pair quickly realizes that they will need each other’s help to survive in a place where everything that was once ordinary and mundane is now vicious and unpredictable. Addressing the threat of ideological dogmatism, the morality of violence, and the possibility of a better world, Our War asserts that while extreme situations breed extreme responses, all hope is never lost. 

Risks and challenges

Under Belly is a new Canadian comic book & graphic novel publishing company, dedicated to bringing you the freshest and most innovative comics from around the world.

Originally the brain child of Adam Jack & Kyle Joseph McEwan to promote and distribute their own work, Under Belly is now pushing forward with producing and publishing some of world's newest up and coming creator owned/independent comics.

We follow a "Kickstarter first" method of publishing, so we will often have more than one project running on Kickstarter at a time. A challenge for us will be managing multiple campaigns at once. But delivering books to our backers will never be a problem. We have different creative teams assigned to each book to make sure they get finished in a timely fashion.

Our biggest challenge will be trying to go above and beyond our goal. $3,000 is the absolute bare minimum we can do this for. Ideally we would like to raise closer to $5,000 - $10,000 in order to put out higher quality books
