The Story of Lee volume 2 – kickstarter campaign

We’ve just launched a kickstarter campaign for the second volume of  THE STORY OF LEE.

 

As you may know these kind of books rarely make much money, for all the creators hard work, so support it a little if you wish to help the next book in this mature manga series come alive.

For those of you who don’t know kickstarter is a type of crowd funding, where ordinary people can help support creative ideas they like, of all types – books, films, inventions, etc. You pledge a certain amount, how much  is up to you, but the money does not get taken out until the project meets it’s funding target. It has to do this within a certain time limit (30 days normally), if not then the creators get ZERO, nothing! So, we need your pledges, however small, to help it get to the target amount.

So please hop over to the kickstarter page about it, watch the short video we made and support the book:

Nice!

Currently he is writing books for Kodansha International, being the only British comic book writer working with them.

His book with War on Want, 'Iraq:Operation Corporate Takeover' was reported on by a variety of mainstream agencies - such as Reuters, CCTV in China and several Middle Eastern magazines. His main influences remain British and American creators - such as Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Eddie Campbell and Harvey Pekar. 'The Story of Lee' is his second published book working with artist Chie Kutsuwada, the first being 'Hagakure' (Kodansha International).

CHIE KUTSUWADA was born and brought up in Japan. After graduating from the Royal College of Art, she now lives and works in London as a manga artist. She also attends some manga-related events and runs manga workshops at schools, libraries, and museums around the UK, such as at British Libraries and the Victoria and Albert Museum. She usually creates story and illustration on her own like King of a Miniature Garden (2007), her first manga, but also works with story writers, such as on the adaptation of 'As You Like It' (2008 SelfMadeHero, London) by Shakespeare and the Japanese classic tale 'Hagakure' by T. Yamamoto (adapted by Sean Michael Wilson, 2010 Kodansha International, Tokyo).
