Last Ember Press Sets Kickstarter Aflame With The Last Ember #1
From a single Ember, an endless fire can grow!
Last Ember Press (LEP) was founded in 2015 and up until now has self-funded all of our titles, and continue to do so today. The Last Ember is LEP’s flagship title, and as such we wanted to put our best efforts toward bringing it to life. Written and lettered by Brant Fowler (Singularity: Rise of the Posthumans, Celestial Falcon) pencils by Giulia Lalli (Puck) with inks and colors by Lisa Moore (Garfield, Faerie Stories) THE LAST EMBER #1 will ignite the Emberverse!
Set in Ocean City, Maryland The Last Ember tells the story of Ember Madison, an ordinary teenage girl with ordinary teenage problems. Until one fateful day, her entire world changes, and something deep down inside of her – something she never knew existed – comes to the surface. That is the day that the fire started.
The Kickstarter campaign started on October 20, 2017 and will end on November 17, 2017. It has some great affordable tiers with a host of rewards, including:
- The comic itself, in both print and digital forms.
- The Last Ember #0, in both print and digital forms.
- The Lil’ Ember 24-Hour Comics Day Project, in both print and digital forms.
- Postcards from Ember.
- An appearance in the comic.
- Logo design for your comic project by Brant Fowler.
- Colors for your comic cover by Lisa Moore.
- Much more!
Join Ember on her journey as she tries to understand what is happening to her and why. She doesn’t know it yet, but it has all happened before, and she is the last in a long line to possess these abilities. Her life is about to get much more complicated.
