Sci-Fi Anthology “Jupiter” Now on Indiegogo
Independent comic book creator Jason Sandberg recently launched launched a crowdfunding campaign for Jupiter issue 1, an ongoing sci-fi anthology series written and illustrated by Sandberg, Jupiter is an anthology
The project is already fully funded, having raised $1300 at the time of this writing. Even better (if you’re a backer, I suppose), is that all work on issue 1 is already complete, work on issue 2 currently underway, and there are plans in place for at least 20 issues.
Like the similarly titled book published in the 1990s, Jupiter will feature a 24-page main feature along with 16 pages of “surrealist and heroic short stories.”
Here’s the official pitch taken from the Jupiter Indiegogo campaign page:
Brenda Marshfield, a teenager trapped in an unhappy home, until the discovery of a magical amulet gives her the ability to escape to anywhere… or stay to become a hero!
Seeking solace at an isolated cabin, a family vacation collides with the opening of a hole in space and time. The repercussions of a violent revolution in a neighboring dimension forever change the lives of Brenda Marshfield’s parents and grant her possession of powers unimagined.
What will she do?
Who will she become?
Read this beginning chapter of a gorgeously illustrated heroic journey!
