I love comics. When I say that, I realize I might as well be saying I love books or visual arts generally, because the breadth, beauty and depth of comics is so overwhelming. But I do love comics. Ryan Estrada, I suspect, feels the same and is doing a lot of work to get many comics in front of many eyes.
Ryan’s current comics promotion is The Whole Story: Winter 2013, a Kickstarter project that is a follow up to his first The Whole Story comics bundle from last summer. This bundle offers 300 pages of digital comics for $1, 750 pages for $13, 1600 pages for $26 and tons of other great content and bonuses. The comics are from great creators such as Ryan Estrada, Ryan Andrews, KC Green, Jang Young, Nam Dong Yoon and all the creators involved in the first collection. The value on offer here is astounding, and I’m thrilled that Ryan plans to make this an ongoing project.
Two of the stories, “Plagued” and “The Dog’s Sins”, were already released to backers. They’re very enjoyable and bode well for the entire collection.
I can’t recommend backing this project enough. Ryan’s commitment to delivering superb comics has been a joy watch and the promise of The Whole Story keeps getting better.
The Whole Story is all about digital done right. We put our time and money into offering the best first-run comics, new translations, and high quality, complete versions of old favorites. We don’t force you to read them on certain devices or in certain apps, we let you download and keep your comics forever. We don’t force you to pay more than cover price, we let you name your own price.
Our books are bundled together in pay-what-you-want collections, and every book we bring you is a complete, stand-alone story. No cliffhangers that force you to pay more to find out what happens next! You can choose between Retina-resolution PDFs (for the highest quality), Web-resolution PDFs (for easy storage), or CBZs (in both resolutions, for use in comic-reading apps), all of which are DRM-free so you can download and keep them forever.
The success of our Summer 2012 collection showed that many people agree with us about how awesome digital can be! Now we’re back with our brand new Winter 2013 collection and we’re turning to Kickstarter to make it the best it can be!
