Arledge Comics today launched a Kickstarter for No Going Back, an original graphic novel illustrated by Anna Wieszczyk and written by Michael Furth.
The comic’s synopsis reads: “They survived the collapse of society by building a wall. It circled the town, keeping the good in and the bad out. Families, farms, community, in. Devastation, horror, starvation, out. This is the world Rebecca was born into. At fourteen, she yearns to know what is beyond the wall. Could the world really be as bad as her parents say? Can she find the courage to step outside, to find the truth?”
“We live in an age where a story of escaping your surroundings and feeling trapped in them feels all too real. It’s serendipitous that this story, a story of resilience and imagination and freedom, should come out in a time where all those are needed more than ever.” says Natalie Cooper, editor at Arledge Comics.
“Growing up is hard. No Going Back is all about the obstacles we face as we try to find out who we are becoming and growing into. In fact, this all started as a dream where a childhood home was a prison, and no matter how comfortable or pretty the house was, it was still confining. This book is for all of us who are pushing against the walls in our lives that hold us back from finding our true selves.” says Michael Furth, writer of No Going Back. “I can’t think of a better home for this book than Arledge Comics, who have dedicated themselves to amplifying the voices of those who face walls in their lives all the time.”
The Kickstarter campaign will run until October 20, 2020.
