A featured Kickstarter Project We Love, Circadia #1 is 5-issue story about Zara and her “dream lover, a non-binary assassin named Aderes.” You read that correctly – Zara is convinced that Aderes is completely made up in her head. A busy girl, Zara is engrossed with her profession as a ballet dancer. What will happen when her almost-certain dreams become reality?
A unique feature of Circadia is that each of the 5 issues will be created anthology style. The teams are all made up of queer women and non-binary artists, each with their own flair and style to contribute to Zara and Aderes’ story. Anthologies are becoming increasing popular in the comic book world, and it is exciting to see those that focus on creative teams dedicated to telling stories of those heard less often.
Jennifer Dugan, creator, expresses the importance of these voices through her other works in YA and comic writing. She has previously authored an ongoing horror comic, Gnaw, and also a young adult novel entitled Hot Dog Girl.
From the Kickstarter page:
“The first issue of Circadia is 22 pages, full-color, and it’s already complete and ready to go to print. A large portion of the work has been paid for out of pocket, so the biggest hurdles left are printing and shipping costs. Your support will make physical copies of Circadia Issue #1 a reality and help fund artist fees on future issues.”
Recommendation: Backing at the $25.00 will secure your copy of Circadia #1 in both print and digital formats, along with your choice of TWO mini prints.
