Thanks to 187 amazing backers, we managed to raise over $12,000 to bring The Forever Maps to life! I’m still in awe at how this campaign came together, and how generous you all have been to make it happen. It’s nothing either of us have ever experienced and it’s been entirely inspiring. All we can do now is put everything we’ve got into making The Forever Maps the best it can be.

Case in point. This story was originally written as a 3-issue mini-series, and there were parts I had to condense to fit each issue into 24 pages. Now that we’ve switched to a graphic novel format, we have more flexibility with structure and pacing. When we launched the campaign as a 72-page graphic novel, I’d always intended that to be a minimum… which we’ve now exceeded. I’m happy to reveal that The Forever Maps will be printed as the full 84-page version it was always intended to be.

These additional 12 pages will allow us to elaborate on some key concepts and scenes, but mostly it will give Todor room to really flex his muscles. And trust me, that’s something we can all get excited about! He will be finishing up another project in the next couple weeks, then he’s going to take a few days to meditate, roller-skate, and rejuvenate before diving back into this story. And he’s going to be diving deep.

In the meantime, I will be creating production schedules and finalizing details for the printed book. We’ve got some really cool things that we’re itching to tell you about, but we don’t want to put the cart before the horse, because that’s not how carts work. For now, all we can reveal is that this project is going to be something special. Expect everything that we’ve told you about already, plus a little bit more.
