Kickstarter

I've been watching for the announcement of volume 3 of Minna Sundberg's postapocalyptic dark fantasy series Stand Still Stay Silent on Kickstarter. A couple of days ago the author mentioned the Kickstarter would open today. It did, and I've funded it sufficiently to get a copy when it's released. Total funded is approaching three times the minimum required as I write this.

This is one of my very favorite graphic narratives. The art is astonishingly good, which is why I'm invested in printed copies. The worldbuilding is interesting, and the characterizations work for me. The backstory about most of humanity being wiped out by a plague to which only a few people are immune seems disturbingly timely, but the main story is about the ongoing reconstruction two generations later . . .
