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 will be 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.
We are devising an entire universe to be filled with various adventures across multiple separate comic book series. The first of the series – the proverbial anchor of the universe – 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 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.
“Why should I care?”, you might be asking. The short answer: because it’s going to be awesome! Slightly longer answer: because it’s going to be more awesome than you can imagine! Long answer: because we are doing something insanely ambitious and never before seen in our Central-Eastern corner of Europe – we’re not just planning on creating a universe to be revealed across multiple comic book series, but also across other media: video games, books, board games, animated films, action figures – the whole shebang!
True to our name, we have dared to imagine the incredible, and we hope you will support our vision and become a part of the birth of a brand new universe.
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!
