About the Comic: Unlawful Good: An Anthology of Crime
new studio Dude, WHAT? Comics. It’s called UNLAWFUL GOOD: An Anthology of Crime. The Anthology features the work of nearly 40 comic creators from across the globe (both notable and under the radar) in 16 8 page comic short stories, all centered around the theme of crime. The book has reached completion, all that’s left is to send it to print! Below I have attached our first press release announcing the Anthology as well as our soon-to-launch print funding campaign.
We would greatly appreciate any sort of support that anyone would be willing to give; whether it be an article, podcast mention, interview, or even just a retweet or two of the Kickstarter.
About Artist:
Heather Antos was born with secret aspirations to become the next James Bond. However since her lack of British heritage has pushed that dream aside she now spends her days as the girl who will never grow up. Having worked as a Producer for webseries such as “Lagged Out” as well as a Comic Journalist for Geek Legacy (and a handful of others) she now spends her days as a freelance Comic Editor and Artist and believes she might be Batman; after all, she’s never seen him in the same room as herself, and they do have the same abs!
