Last year, I had the pleasure of interviewing comic book creator Gabe Smith of Human Comics regarding his successful Kickstarter campaign for Human #1, the first installment of his sci-fi graphic novel series. With the overwhelming support of the campaign’s backers, Smith was able to self-publish the first book of the series and even acquired international distribution through Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc. Now, Smith has returned to Kickstarter with the hopes of raising the necessary capital to produce and publish the second installment of Human and to finance the marketing, distribution, and convention costs of both books.
Written by Gabe Smith and featuring art by Ryan Merrill, Human takes place hundreds of years in the future on earth and tells the story of Cezra, a young female bounty hunter who lives in a society where human genetic engineering and bio-mechanical upgrades are illegal, but common.

Be sure to visit the Human Kickstarter page, and don’t forget to check out the backer rewards, which include limited edition hard copies of Issues #1 and #2, advertising space within the comic, and the chance to become a character within the pages of the second issue! These are only a handful of the amazing rewards available and more will be added throughout the campaign. The campaign closes on Monday, March 18th, so be sure to donate soon!
