The Kid's Book Project
Submitted by moovok on October 1, 2007 - 09:08
In February 2007 the Kid's Book Project had one question to answer: "can a group of 50 webcomic artists band together to make a story?" After gathering a ton of artists together, all of which doing it for the Make-A-Wish Foundation International, the Kid's Book Project set about doing just that, finding out whether a group could make a story. The challenge was that they could only see the page previous to their own and there would be two groups - one going from the start and one going backwards from the end.
The Kid's Book Project is nearing its climatic final with only 10 artists left to don their pages. The cover, just released today, is created by the talented Liz Greenfield who had the hardest challenge of creating a cover without even seeing the inside of it. Each book costs £6 and all profits go directly towards the Make-A-Wish Foundation. There will only be 500 printed, so if you don't get one you probably never will.
The first 100 pre-orders will get a signed printed "thank you" letter from all the artists ranging from Frank Page, Ryan North, Mitch Clem, Brandon J Carr and many many extremely talented people all helping the Make-A-Wish Foundation gain some much needed funds!
So if you haven't already, pre-order your copy today because as soon as they've gone, you'll never find out the answer - "can webcomic artists create a good enough story?"
