SKYSCRAPER: Coming to Kickstarter

by ryankl

SKYSCRAPER is a mystery one-shot comic we’re bringing to Kickstarter, and we are crazy excited about this one.

I’ve written this story, and I’ve pushed myself to do something different with it.

Mitchell Collins has illustrated this and he’s definitely going to be your new favourite when you see how fine every single page is.

Simon Robins has coloured this beast so well he actually used a spreadsheet to keep it all in check. Absolute boss move.

SKYSCRAPER is a one-shot comic, it deals with a death in a major corporate building. Or more accurately, right in front of it when the victim came flying out of a window from the top floor. To tell this tale, we decided to employ an interesting structure: every single page is a front shot of the building, and it’s sliced horizontally into panels. Mitchell does amazing work zooming in on certain moments, and carving cutaway sections on other moments. I’ve mapped it out so different panels can show different time periods, sometimes jumping forward five minutes in the floor below, sometimes showing a flashback a few decades ago on the ground floor.

It’s fun.

We’ve also decided to make this structural behemoth oversized, making it a newspaper sized item.

To help print this oversized wonder, we’re going to Kickstarter to hit a funding goal and get this comic out into the world. You’ll be able to order the comic, posted directly to you, as well as adding some other additional items which we’ll unveil in the coming weeks.

The Kickstarter launches on September 24th and will run for 3 weeks.

Indie comics is a game of passion, and we’re 100% here for this story and we cannot wait to share it with you.
