Unite and Take Over: Comic Stories
Published on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 by

The concept for Unite and Take Over is pretty simple. What story plays in your head when you listen to your favorite Smiths song? I approached some of my fellow comic book creators and asked them to create 4-8 pages stories inspired by their favorite Smiths songs. The song acts as an inspiration, jumping off point, theme or mood for the story. Each story varies in style and genre.

The Plan
We are planning to premiere Unite and Take Over at Tucson Comic-con in November. We have 13 scripts that have been approved and turned over to the artists with several more nearing completion. As it stands, the book will have 74 pages of illustrated stories. We are asking backers to help with the costs to print the book, license the print rights for lyrics use, purchase an ISBN barcode, and create some unique Kickstarter rewards. International backers please add $10 to your pledge to offset the difference in the shipping costs.
