Alterna Comics is celebrating their 10th Anniversary this year and to commemorate it, they are launching a KickStarter!
The KickStarter which has a goal of $3,500 is for the creation of not one book, but two books. Those two books include a 40 page full color character guide and the Alterna AnniverSeries Anthology.
The character guide book will be very similar to the trading cards from 90s with all of the cool character information on the back. Instead of trading card size, it will be in comic book size. It will also include a regular cover and a blank variant cover.
The Alterna AnniverSeries Anthology includes Alterna’s best stories from the past ten years some of which have never seen print before. It will be 200 pages in length with stories about space-traveling children, swash-buckling sky pirates, World War II era zombies, sadistic prison guards, an alien with an identity crisis, and more. There is even a stretch goal to double the size of the anthology to 400 pages!
The initial goal of $3500 will will cover the print runs of the full color character guide and the a black and white anthology, shipping, and KickStarter fees.
There are also a number of stretch goals:
- At $4000, all backers at the $25 and up level will receive a signed and numbered 4×6 postcard. The cover and interior paper stocks will also be upgraded.
- At $5500, every backer at the $50 and up level will receive an 11×17 signed mini-poster. The Anthology AnniverSeries will also be completely colored.
- At $7000, all backers a the $5 and up level will receive a “Make Mine Indie” bumper sticker. The AnniverSeries Anthology will also include 200 more pages of never before printed content.
- At $9000, all backers at the $25 and up level will receive the Con Crud Secret Serum, an antibacterial hand gel with a nifty logo.
As of the writing of this article, the KickStarter has currently raised $750 from 26 different backers for its $3500 goal. There are still 13 days left for you to hop on board and participate!
