The Story of Lee volume 2 – kickstarter campaign

We’ve just launched a kickstarter campaign for the second volume of  THE STORY OF LEE.

 

As you may know these kind of books rarely make much money, for all the creators hard work, so support it a little if you wish to help the next book in this mature manga series come alive.

For those of you who don’t know kickstarter is a type of crowd funding, where ordinary people can help support creative ideas they like, of all types – books, films, inventions, etc. You pledge a certain amount, how much  is up to you, but the money does not get taken out until the project meets it’s funding target. It has to do this within a certain time limit (30 days normally), if not then the creators get ZERO, nothing! So, we need your pledges, however small, to help it get to the target amount.

So please hop over to the kickstarter page about it, watch the short video we made and support the book:

Nice!
