Alterna Comics’ Spring Preorder Campaign Now Live on Indiegogo

Spring has sprung!

Over the weekend, Alterna Comics launched a pre-order crowdfunding campaign for their Spring lineup of books. The campaign is well on its way to being fully funded, having raised more than $6 thousand at the time of this writing.

Through the Indiegogo campaign page, you can pick up all six of Alterna’s Spring issues, or simply pick and choose the titles you want. There are also add-on options to pick up previous issues within a series if you want to catch up.

Here’s the full Spring 2022 lineup of available books:

All physical backers will also receive a new “Alterna Series” trading card, this time featuring Tinseltown’s Officer Abigail Moore, with the potential to unlock a card with Unit 44’s Agent Gibson if the campaign crosses the $10k threshold.

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $5 for backers in the United States.
