About

 Hello! My name is Sami Brice, when I graduated college I was hit with the reality that coming into my industry as new talent would be a lot harder than I thought. I struggled with the idea that maybe I was waiting for opportunities that would never come, so I decided to stop waiting. I had an idea and a curiosity of whether there were other artists who felt the same way I did. I made an Instagram page and a month later, was surprised and empowered by how many people answered my call. With the help of a group of amazing artists I was able to direct, contribute, and edit Waiting: A Comic Anthology

I am turning to kickstarter as a way to bring awareness to our project and the artists within our project. With your help my main goal is to pay these amazing artists and produce physical copies of our anthology for distribution.

Waiting is a full color comic anthology geared to young adults and contributed to by a diverse pool of artists. 

  Since our creators are so diverse I wanted them to have the advantage of being able to tell their stories without filter. Due to that, our anthology is filled with stories that convey a lot of heart, some raw, some mature, some gritty, some so sweet it'll give you a tooth ache!

 Sample pages by Tomas Vallecillo and Nat Browlee

But all made with care and the desire to convey emotion to the audience. It has taken us a number of months to put all our stories together and we know we created a product that anyone can enjoy.

Risks and challenges

I feel like our only risks are the possibility of not meeting our goal and unforeseeable issues with shipping oversees. Other than that our comics are drawn, we know where we're going to print, and I know we can fulfill our rewards!
