“IF” - the word itself has helped to turn science fiction into science fact; making the impossible become possible. 

As the founder and publisher of Alterna Comics, I've learned a lot in our almost 10 years in existence. Anthologies can provide such a diverse reading experience, even when they're focused on one subject or category.  I'm proud to say that this anthology is the one I've been building up to and mapping out for 5 years: IF will be an annual comics anthology that will celebrate a different theme with every release.

 BIG FOOT LITTLE HOPE by CHAS! PANGBURN and MARIANO LACLAUSTRA BIG FOOT LITTLE HOPE by CHAS! PANGBURN and MARIANO LACLAUSTRA  
 LIFE IN THE GAME by MICHAEL MALKIN, NOVO MALGAPO, and DEKARA LIFE IN THE GAME by MICHAEL MALKIN, NOVO MALGAPO, and DEKARA  
 D IS FOR VICTORY by BRANDON BARROWS, PEEBO MONDIA, and NIC J. SHAW D IS FOR VICTORY by BRANDON BARROWS, PEEBO MONDIA, and NIC J. SHAW  

Science Fiction is the theme for the book's debut and 15 stories of time, space, robots, virtual reality, technology gone wrong and right, and other tales from beyond will be told by 36 of the best up-and-coming creators in comics.

The book is 100% complete and ready to go to print, which brings us to our next part...

   

All funds raised on our Kickstarter will go towards our print run and towards getting copies of the book to the creators involved. We have stretch goals planned so we can upgrade the quality of the book as well as fund anthologies for years to come.

 LOVE BY NUMBERS by GLENN MATCHETT, DAN LAUER, ERICA J. HEFLIN, and CLAIRE BENSON LOVE BY NUMBERS by GLENN MATCHETT, DAN LAUER, ERICA J. HEFLIN, and CLAIRE BENSON  
 SIGNS OF LIFE by ZACH BASSETT SIGNS OF LIFE by ZACH BASSETT  
 CLING by JON CLARK and ERICA J. HEFLIN CLING by JON CLARK and ERICA J. HEFLIN  

Here's a quick list that outlines our budget and what we'll be doing with the funds we need to raise and the funds we hope to raise:

   

Reaching our goal will allow us to do what we came here to do - fund the book's print run as well as allow us to create rewards and ship rewards to backers. With that said though, I really hope we can reach all of these stretch goals as it will allow us to create an even better book and it'll help us fund future IF anthologies.  

Plus... we've got something pretty cool planned for the $10K mark  :)
