More than anything, I want SEASONS to succeed and reach everywhere and everyone it can. Accomplishing this is no small task, as you could imagine. When I set out to write SEASONS, the goal was to send it to a major comics publisher after I had finished the first story. This option is still on the table, but if no one takes it up, self-publishing is the only other avenue to get a printed copy of the book in the hands of people. And to do this, I’m really going to need the help of the readership, friends, family and that little big thing known as crowdfunding via Kickstarter.

The plan is to post new pages of SEASONS on seasonsthecomicbook.com weekly and to build up a fanbase. If readers like it enough and it garners a healthy amount of attention, launching a crowdfunding campaign by early next year for the entire first story (four issues, 105 pages) to get printed (and possibly colored!) will be my next step. I always envisioned SEASONS to be a printed book, as well as fully colored, and I hope this vision will be fulfilled soon. Since the book is set in 2017 and in real time, it is a real desire of mine for the reader to follow Fletcher next year season by season, all the way into early 2018. If I had a limitless bank account, I would be able to print it myself and pay Anthony his due reward for his incredible artwork, but sadly I don’t and that’s discouraging, I won’t lie. I don’t want SEASONS to fail, and I will go the extra mile to make sure that doesn’t happen.

But I’m gonna need you, the reader, to help me make this dream come true. So I ask that you tell your friends about SEASONS, that you share it on social media, that you spread the word about this on forums and wherever else you have a voice – on the web or on the streets – so that one day soon, maybe by the middle of 2018, you’ll have SEASONS: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter all printed in graphic novel format in your very own two hands. Wouldn’t that be exciting? I think so, and I really hope you do, too.

This has to work. It has to.
