We're doing it again! CARBON & SILICON and SHANGRI-LA campaign launching on Tuesday!
21 days ago – Sat, May 22, 2021 at 02:50:36 AM

Hi everyone!

Hope you're doing well and getting ready for a great weekend! We've got some exciting news that we think you will really appreciate. In fact, as poignant, hard-sci-fi fans, you will probably find this announcement particularly exciting...


We are launching a new campaign for not one but TWO jaw-droppingly gorgeous sci-fi graphic novels by one of the most stellar talents today, Mathieu Bablet. His sci-fi epic SHANGRI-LA won the Fauve d'Or at the Angouleme festival in 2017, and he followed that up with the recent (and even more epic) CARBON & SILICON which was chosen by mega-store chain FNAC as the Best Graphic Novel of 2020!

``If Stanley Kubrick, Ridley Scott, and Denis Villeneuve teamed up to make comics, these would be their masterpieces.``

These books are truly incredible (dare we say "life-changing"...?) and we're thrilled to bring both to your shelves as beautiful oversized hardcovers and in limited-edition linen-and-foil slipcase!

Check out the preview page for trailers, sample pages, and -- best of all -- a FREE linen cardstock print for pre-registering your pledge early! And if you back us on Day-1 you'll get SECOND free print, plus all of the bonus prints that will unlock weekly! The earlier you pledge, the more you get for FREE!

Hi everyone! Just a quick weekend post, as teased in the last update --

You may have seen an email or one of a dozen+ websites announcing it yesterday, but in case you missed the big reveal...


Described as ``PETER PAN meets AKIRA``, this 'manga-adjacent' 248-page hardcover graphic novel by JD Morvan and Toru Terada is a funland of action and vice! And it is the only full-length graphic novel by superstar mangaka TORU TERADA!

Check out the exciting trailer!

Just as we've offered on all previous campaigns, if you pre-register your pledge before launch, you will get a bonus limited edition 8.5x11" linen cardstock print of the campaign-exclusive variant cover art by the red-hot, in-high-demand artist PEACH MOMOKO!


This time around, everyone who backs the campaign on Day One (Tuesday April 6th) will get a FREE Limited Edition linen cardstock print by Toru Terada!

That's TWO FREE PRINTS for simply pre-registering and pledging on Day One!

Visit the pre-registration page TODAY to learn more about the project and to sign up for your free Peach print. If you like manga, anime, cyberpunk fairy tales, ironic mashups,  dystopic vice, or beautiful and unique artwork, this project promises to be a wild ride! We've got lots of surprise extras, and exciting bonuses lined up!

We hope to see you there on Tuesday!

ONLY 24 hours left to back MONOLITH!

Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to reach out to mention that MONOLITH, our current campaign, is coming to a close and we're excited that it was picked by Kickstarter as their COMIC OF THE DAY, and sat at the top of their Featured Items all day long...!

If you haven't checked it out yet, head over to (which is just a fancy redirect to the campaign page). There are some GREAT books there, some already-unlocked freebies, and some EXTREMELY limited-edition items that are almost gone! Plus: it's all LRNZ's art, and that guy is, like, a genius.

If you have checked it out and hopped on board: Thank you! Finish line is in sight!

Get ready for MONOLITH launching on Tuesday!

Hey everyone!

With all of the packages shipped out, we don't have much news to share here except... get ready...


Yep, it's launch time again, and we're bringing another blockbuster graphic novel to the table, one you will not want to miss!

From visionary graphic designer LRNZ (GOLEM, VIEWPOINT) and the dramatic mind of writer ROBERTO RECCHIONI (ORPHANS) comes a cinematic, psychological thriller for the digital age!

We're following up our 2016 campaign for LRNZ's VIEWPOINT artbook with a feature-length, oversized hardcover graphic novel stunningly painted by LRNZ --

This project was hinted at in the pages of VIEWPOINT, but we're excited to present the completed project in a gorgeous oversized gallery edition! If you're familiar with LRNZ's work, you know you can expect a dazzling variety of graphical styles, designs, and storytelling that perfectly exploit the unique abilities of comic book art. DIfferent styles used to capture different mental states, etc. It is really powerful, outstanding stuff.

Make no mistake, this is a rated-R movie, but one that you will want to "watch" over and over and over again.

Check out the pre-registration landing page at !

The campaign is also offering the last 400 copies of LRNZ's GOLEM, as well as copies of the original, 200-page VIEWPOINT Art book and a brand new Limited Edition Box Set of ORPHANS Season One!

All kinds of cool stuff to be revealed... you won't want to miss out!

And if you pre-register your pledge today, you can get a bonus linen-cardstock print by LRNZ added to your order FREE !

Just visit to register before the campaign launches on Tuesday to get one of these beautiful prints added to your order at no extra cost.

We'll be showcasing a TON of LRNZ's beautiful work created in the 4 years since the VIEWPOINT campaign, so please mark your calendars and join us for the launch and video premiere on Tuesday the 9th at 10am CST and help us have a great day-one launch!

The last birds have left the nest, sent soaring toward the horizon...

Hey everyone!

Here's an update that's been a long time coming: 

International orders have departed. DHL tracking numbers are going out now. This campaign is done.*

(*...aside from the 22 of you who still haven't filled out your surveys... please know that we may have to impose an expiration date due to warehouse/storage restrictions... you can't say we haven't given you plenty of notification over the past 5 months...)

International backers: Backerkit has been updated so that your shipments have been marked as fulfilled with your DHL tracking numbers indicated. Notification emails should be automatically sent shortly (you may have even gotten yours already). There is a weblink to the basic global tracking site, but unfortunately, we only received the list of individual numbers, not individual/direct tracking links. So you will have to copy your tracking number into the field to check the status. We asked that they be sent marked as "gifts" with a minimal customs value, but we're not sure how each was marked, so hopefully, they'll arrive with no more fuss. Please let us know if there are any questions.

So with PARIS 2119 out the door, ASTER OF PAN starting to ship this week, WAHCOMMO about to lock down orders and on its way to our warehouse, and BRINDILLE at the printer now, I guess we can take a break, huh?


Stay tuned... LRNZ is back...
