Today sees the launch of a Kickstarter to fund volume two of Hari Conner’s award-winning webcomic series Finding Home.
Previous editions of the comic have been recognised as DiNKy awards’ Best Webcomic winner 2018, a StArt Faire’s Excellence in Drama winner 2017, and Scottish Independent Comic Book Awards’ Best Artist winner 2017; and by the Myriad First Graphic Novel competition longlist 2018, Prism Awards Best Short Comic shortlist 2017, and Broken Frontier’s Best Webcomic shortlist 2018.
Finding Home is a slow-burn LGBT romance comic, exploring trauma, mental health recovery and relationships through a fantasy setting with lush, illustrative landscapes. Volume 2: The Healer continues the story of Janek and Chepi as their journey takes a darker and more dramatic turn.
As they grow closer on their long journey together, Chepi struggles with anxiety, past trauma, and his complicated new feelings for Janek. Janek doesn’t understand his friend’s hesitance and is unsure if the spark he feels between them is even real. With time running out before their journey ends, and with dangers lurking on the path before them, can they make it home at all?
This print volume will continue their story in advance of the webcomic release, which will conclude Volume two mid-2020. Backers have the chance to pre-order the 196-page graphic novel and exclusive rewards, including bundles at discount earlybird prices for the first 50 backers. Higher reward tiers will include enamel pins, limited edition sweatshirts and original pencilled pages from the comic.
Backers will also be able to purchase exclusive guest art print sets at different tiers, including artwork from Eisner-nominated Sar DuVall (work for: Lion Forge, Random House, Iron Circus, Dark Horse), Syeda Faiza (Apollo Adventures, Heir Exclusive) and Sam Beck (Verse, Songs for the Dead, BOOM!, 2000AD).
