Project #2: Mara #1

What it's about
: The first chapter of Mara follows the titular character, moments before she's suddenly caught in a bloody tribal war. Unwilling to allow the last of his tribe to die, a guardian wolf spirit descends upon Mara, taking her from a young girl in a small fishing village to an avatar of revenge. Help us bring the first entry in this series to life, and you can follow the titular character, Mara, as she tries to manage the power of an ancestral spirit she wasn’t prepared to receive. As she ventures from the broken tatters of her own little tribe into the larger world on a quest for revenge, she learns how much bigger the world is than herself, and how deeply entrenched her enemy really is. This comic will be the first of ten in the series. 24 pages of high-quality, 120g paper, perfect bound in a 250p matte finish coated cover.

Project #3: Debut: An Anthology of Rising Comics Artists

What it's about
: Over 190 pages of comics, made from a unique collection of six full length stories from up-and-coming comic creators! Debut: An Anthology of Rising Comics Artists aims to give a group of artists the opportunity to be part of a collective of artists gathered in one space to create an anthology of comics, created by themselves and with no restriction on theme or content. The goal is to debut these artists, give them publishing experience, work with a team that supports them and have a printed product of their works.
