We hope that you will join us in giving these projects a moment of your time (and possibly your support)!



Project #1: Brik Jones: Attorney for Earth, Origins #1-5

What it's about: Brik Jones: Attorney for Earth, "Origins" #1-5, the complete first chapter of the epic science fiction webcomic from Fighting Lion Comics! Created, written, and lettered by Phil Smith (Witchblade: Due Process, Artifacts, Trinity: Blood on the Sands) with art by Giuseppe Cafaro (Fathom: Kiani, Catwoman, Suicide Squad) colors by Bill Farmer (Think Tank, Dream Police, The Adventures of Apocalypse Al), and previously released issue #0 with art by Sid Kotian (Gambit, Beneath An Alien Sky). When an interstellar wrecking crew claims the Earth as its property, they are temporarily halted by an interstellar court order until Earth's representative can be found. Coming off a heartbreaking courtroom loss, BRIK is unceremoniously shot into space to a waiting starship, where he discovers his father has been Earth's attorney for the last 20 years but has gone missing. In his father's absence, Brik must assume the title. As Brik navigates the byzantine galactic legal structure, the clock is ticking as an immense Destroyer waits above the Earth, eager to tear it to pieces. Brik must solve the mystery of what happened to his father and how he will manage the pressure the nations of Earth place on him with their competing interests and his own views. All while on the run from the mysterious alien race whose plan to destroy the Earth rests on it having no legal defender, making Brik a target and our only hope.

Project #2: Allison Strange

What it's about
: In the vast wilderness of Alaska, a gas station worker with a penchant for solving problems finds a trove of paranormal artifacts. Welcome to the Inside Passage, a real-life region of Alaska that’s an unexplored counterpart to Stephen King’s Maine. It's a land of isolated seaside towns, forgotten tragedies, and old ghosts. The eerie, continent-spanning Tongass Forest starts at your back door and doesn't stop till the Atlantic Ocean. There you'll find a store along the highway. It looks like the Blair Witch’s cabin if it stole the front of a 7-Eleven to wear like Groucho glasses. The only employee took the job sight-unseen off Craigslist after her old, normal life fell apart. Now she lives in the attic above the store. People from the nearby town throw pebbles at her window when they want something at night. An unsettlingly clever wolf keeps raiding the dumpster in an escalating battle of wits. This is Allison Strange’s new, weird life.

Project #3: Everyone Dies Alone (誰しも一人で死んでいく)

What it's about
: "Everyone Dies Alone is a Graphic Novel about dying. It was a project that I worked on for over a year. For a long time, I have asked myself questions about death and existence, like everyone else. Then, I created a story with my friend. And years later, the project became this. I continued to draw whenever I found time from my other works. But I haven't finished yet. As I mentioned in the Risks section, 25 pages have been drawn and more are waiting to be drawn. I lost my grandmother a week ago and this project that was on the shelf has become important to me again. It has become a project I want to dedicate to her. Maybe he died alone like everyone else in this book, but maybe..."
