Help bring IT’S ALIVE! to life

bangcoverRemember BANG! The Universe Verse, the brilliantly conceived and illustrated comic book I blogged about in April, the one with the cartoon Einstein explaining the origin and development of the universe in verse? ‘Member?

Well a sequel is on its way. And to bring it to life, series creator Jamie Lu Dunbar needs a little help from his friends.

Jamie isn’t backed by a powerful international consortium of science comics moguls. He creates and publishes these beautiful things himself. And to make the second volume everything it needs to be, he needs a bit of venture capital.

Volume 1 was gorgeously illustrated in black and white. The setting was space, so that worked out just fine. But the second in the series, titled IT’S ALIVE!, is about the origin and evolution of life on Earth, so it’s crying out for full color. And producing spectacular four-color illustrations will require a wee upgrade in Jamie’s technology.

That’s where we come in. Jamie has set up a Kickstarter website with a five-minute video making his case and a button where we can chip in to help him create life. (If Jehovah had had a Kickstarter drive behind him, he might have managed a better design.)

Here’s the kicker: If Jamie raises the $5000 he needs, he will make the second book available as a free pdf on his website, just as he did for the first. He’s about a third of the way there. (Note: The Kickstarter site shows his goal as $1000. As Jamie’s text explains, that was only the first phase. The total needed is $5K, and we can help him get there, $5 and $10 and $20 at a time.)

Jamie’s work is clever and accessible and accurate and great fun. So let’s click through and help spark that primordial soup!

  1. Hi Dale,
    Thanks for the link and the article. I must have missed your April post but am so excited to hear of Jamie’s project and was glad to head over to Kickstarter to help him out.
    I’d also never heard of Kickstarter before (perhaps it’s primarily a US thing and I’m outside the US) and am having fun viewing the other projects.

  2. Thanks Dale – I had never heard of Jamie’s project and was very pleased to find out about it. I’ve pledged, and plan to use my copy of his excellent work at the sunday school of the Ethical Culture Society of Bergen County. I’m teaching the Junior class (ages 8-11)and part of their curriculum is evolution – this is a great way to make it fun and accessible for them.
