Strange News from Another World
This is a multimedia project that began in 2010 with the publication of the graphic novel, Strangest story ever told
The books are based on the original story by Rey King and illustrated by Rey and members of Cosmic Brain Trust the artist network created by Rey in 1980.
Our current project, Strange News from Another World, is book 2.
Strange News from Another World will present innovative cartooning and computer graphics combined with a unique story to present concepts and ideas focused on the social and spiritual evolution of human society in the 21st century and beyond. The visual and conceptual feast includes; human evolution/ revolution, bizarre characters, UFOs, conspiracies, weird science, forbidden knowledge, the healing arts and lots of eye candy!
Most of the artists that helped me put this book together are stuggleing to survive as independent artists. They need your support.
Book two will be a print-on-demand publication. This means that only pre-ordered books will be available. so please show your support and help us reach our $3,000.00 goal
This book will also include a companion DVD as part of the deluxe media package (see preview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOnKt2y-6AQ ) The book will feature all new stories and art by well known cartoonists and illustrators such as; Vaughn and Mark Bode (Cobalt 60), Larry Todd (Dr. Atomic), Mark Roland (New Age illustrator) and others.
Strange News from Another World will present innovative computer graphics combined with unique alternative press cartooning to present concepts and ideas focused on the social and spiritual evolution of human society in the 21st century. Often when new or controversial ideas are presented to corporations and investors, they are rejected not for lack of merit or commercial potential, but for political or personal agendas. We are pleased to announce that this project will not be abandoned for lack of financial backing. We have secured distribution with Diamond distributors.
What We Need & What You Get
The total cost for the last book was $12,756.00 for 5,000 books plus promotional postcards. We will print books by demand this time in units of 1000 to get books out ASAP.
Therefore our goal is to raise a modest $3,000 to finance the first print run. We will do whatever necessary to get the books out! However, with your support the books will be made available much sooner. We offer some fun perks to inspire you.
