“Memoirs of the Mysterious” Kickstarter features story by 3 CE members; plus “The Spider King” lettered by CE alum

memoirs-of-the-mysterious-jpgThe Twilight Zone-inspired anthology, Memoirs of the Mysterious includes a story created by THREE Comics Experience alums and Creators Workshop members.

The story, entitled “Better Off,” was written by Marta Tanrikulu, with art by Brian Gilman, and letters and colors by Nic J. Shaw, all CE alums and Workshop members! Check out a panel from the story below.

Memoirs will contain approximately 60 pages of short stories, ranging from mystery and suspense to horror and sci-fi…always with a twist at the end. More than 20 creators have contributed to the tome.

Kickstarter rewards for pledging start at only $5 for a PDF of the anthology, and include other options such as excludive prints, original comic art pages from the book, and even a script review by Marta!

As of this writing, the project is over 70% funded with two weeks to go, so it’s not too late to support the project now!




And if you’re looking for another project to support, CE alum Nic J. Shaw is also the letterer on the Kickstarter for the graphic novel project The Spider King.

If you’re interested in a tale of Vikings facing aliens in the middle ages, check out all the cool incentives and more details on The Spider King‘s Kickstarter page as well!

Best of luck to Marta, Brian, and Nic!
