Soda and Telepaths Comic Book Site to Release 18-Story, End-of-the-World-Themed Anthology
18 stories, 18 writers, 12 artists! After over 3 years of relentless indie comic book coverage, Soda and Telepaths will release an apocalyptic-themed anthology entitled "Producing the End of the World."
Producing the End of the World features 18 stories by 18 writers from a mix of writing backgrounds and 12 artists lending their talents to bring to life an unending smorgasbord of apocalyptic comic book porn. Unlike its contemporaries, Producing the End of the World focuses on the humanism component first, set against a mix of different apocalyptic scenarios.
Producing the End of the World takes inspiration from film and TV anthologies such as Heavy Metal, The Animatrix and Love, Death and Robots more than it does from comic books. To that end, supporters of this Kickstarter will experience each immersive short story much like its own episode of a haunting apocalyptic anthology series that hasn't been filmed yet.
