This Monday, Sept. 12, 2016, is the launch of the Flutter, Volume Three Kickstarter. Flutter, Volume Three: Hey Mom, Why So Tense? will be the final volume in the graphic novel series published by 215 Ink. The Kickstarter will run from Sept. 12 – Oct. 14, and features The Flutter Collection, a book combining three volumes in the Flutter series. The team that brought you the award-winning, critically acclaimed Flutter Volume Two will be back for Volume Three: creator/writer Jennie Wood, artist Jeff McComsey, colorist Chris Goodwin, and editor/letterer Jeff McClelland.
The goal of this Kickstarter is to raise funds to print enough copies of Volume Three and The Flutter Collection to distribute them into comic shops next year. Just like the first two volumes, Volume Three will be a 100+ page, full color graphic novel. Along with the omnibus edition, rewards for the Kickstarter include a chance to be featured as a character in Volume Three, a comic book writing class with Jennie Wood, and your choice of original or commissioned art from Jeff McComsey. The original art offered for this Volume Three Kickstarter campaign has been featured in multiple art exhibits this year. Here's the link to the preview of the Kickstarter campaign with more information about the project.
