Big news, everyone!
We’re on the verge of something epic! Before you get super-excited, no, it is not the release of our first issue, but yes, that’s what it’s all about. In a matter of days we are launching a Kickstarter campaign! Sit back and relax, we’re going to tell you all about the cool, yet confusing world of crowdfunding we’ve got ourselves into.
As you may have already gathered from bits and pieces on the website, we are devising an entire universe to be filled with various adventures, not just across multiple separate comic book series, but across multiple media as well. The first chapter in the saga of this universe is Lightstep Chronicles, a comic book series written and illustrated by the award-winning author Milos Slavkovic. Lightstep Chronicles is already deep into the production process, with two episodes already finished and three more to go to complete the story arc that will introduce you to the Lightstep worlds.
You may not be aware of this, but giving birth to a universe is not an easy job. There’s a lot that goes into it, and every once in a while you must rely on a little bit of help from your friends. This is where you – the readers, the comic book fans, the gamers, the dreamers and the lost sons of long-destroyed planets – come in. We need your help to get the ball rolling.
In order to complete the introductory 5-episode story arc, we have turned to Kickstarter and the comic book fans around the world. The story is already fully mapped out, parts of the artwork are already in place, but we need the funds to finish the job and maintain the high artistic standards set by the first two episodes. We want to bring the entire collection to the world in all its blingy, full color glory.
The birth of a brand new universe is almost upon us, and we invite you to help kickstart the Lightstep big bang!
As we said, the campaign kicks off in a few days, and then you’ll have all the details on the multiple ways in which you can support it. For now, we’d be thankful if you would spread the word about our project and try and convince a few Doubting Thomases in your neighborhood to believe and imagine incredible.
Once the campaign gets rolling, our pledgers will be able to experience the Lightstep universe both physically and digitally, thanks to the multitude of pledge awards we’ve carefully selected for you. For now, stay tuned for more news about our Kickstarter campaign!
