Lighter than Heir Book Kickstarter!
Lighter than Heir Book Kickstarter!

This project has already launched.

Short Version

Melissa Albino has spent the last two and a half years producing the webcomic, Lighter than Heir. The comic follows the story of a young girl whose trapped in her famous war hero father’s shadow. Being the cocky girl she is, she joins the military in hopes to replace his name in the history books. That task deems difficult as she must face new hardships such as basic training, enemies, and the turmoil of her own emotions.

The comic was originally in bluescale on the internet, but with your help, we plan to bring the comic to print in BEAUTIFUL full color with revised art, book exclusive comics, and bonus goodies available no where else! Kickstarter launches March 3rd!

Long version

The famous Zeppelin Von Schultheiss is tired of living in the shadow of her father. So what if he was a war hero… there’ll be other wars! And who cares if everyone loves him? Love is for people without true ambition! And it’s not like it’s a big deal that he could fly. I mean… well okay, that was kind of a big deal. But Zeppelin can fly too! And unlike her beloved war hero father, she isn’t dead.

So join Zeppelin on her personal quest for praise and glory… or just sit back and get on with the praising and ...glory-ing. Because military boot camp is going to be a cakewalk for someone this headstrong and arrogant.


(Start reading here to find out!)

Lighter than Heir Volume One will contain the first SIX chapters (224 pages!) of the comic with revised art and a never before seen bonus epilogue chapter detailing the final days of basic training.

Supplemental materials planned include early character sketches and rare behind the scenes insights.

And for the first time ever, Lighter than Heir Volume One will be presented in full color!



If this Kickstarter is funded, Lighter than Heir will be printed in a 250 page, full color, 6"x9” paperback book!

But printing a full color book of this size can be very expensive! That’s why I need your help!

For your pledge, I’m offering special rewards that will enrich your life! (or at least look really good on a shelf)
