Added Conventions!

Hello guys!

My first con of the year will be Fantasticon Toledo, one of my faves of the year. I look forward to starting the con season strong! I will have copies of Aeonian #1 available here, so if you missed the Kickstarter, you can grab your copy then!

As of right now, I have no conventions in April, but I will be hitting it hard in May. First off is Penguicon (pending) May3rd-5th. It will be my first time attending as a vendor, but it is a great show and I may even have a panel! More info later :)

May 17th -19th I will be at Motor city Comic Con at the Podcast Detroit booth! They are sponsoring me this year, so I will be hanging with them, but will have all my books for sale there as well :)

May 24th-26th I will be at my absolute favorite convention of the, Cherry Capital Comic Con in beautiful Traverse City, MI. I can't wait to see my up north fam again!!

I will be booking store signings for June and July, and will update this page when I have that all scheduled. I have more cons that I am still booking for this year, so stay tuned!

The Kickstarter Was A Huge Success!

I want to thank everyone for their support, whether it was emotional, sharing the project, or backing the project. You are all amazing, and I appreciate every one of you!

As soon as all funds are in we will begin sending the backer surveys out, and then we can fulfill the orders. It is going to be chaos, but sometimes chaos is a good thing!

Aeonian #2 is written and is now with my editor. Because of all of you, I am able to start production in March. I am thrilled to be able to bring this series to you, and will have another pre-order when issue 2 is ready to come out later this year.

Have a great day, and thank you for supporting indie comics!

You have no idea how much this means to me. Thank you all so much, and I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Aeonian #1 is LIVE on Kickstarter!

We are live on Kickstarter with my newest series, Aeonian.

Aeonian is an ongoing series. This campaign is for the first issue, which follows a family who has had a taste of living an extended life, but are looking to solidify their grasp on living forever. Issue one follows the family as they struggle with outside sources, and each other, to reach their goal.

 Who is their "guest", and what secrets does he hold? Blending mythology, horror, and sci-fi, this arc will leave you asking yourself, how far would you go to obtain eternal life?

The Last Heist will be published through Vulture Comics

  The Last Heist

Vulture Comics has graciously picked up The Last Heist as one of their launch titles! They will be launching a Kickstarter in February with several other amazing indie titles to share with everyone. I am truly honored to be a part of this team, and look forward to having The Last Heist in such good company!

If you want to pick up a copy of the first print run, I still have a few left! Click here to purchase, or join us in February for the launch of Vulture Comics!

New series announcement!

Completing my first series was a true milestone for me. I never imagined that I would get to write a comic, let alone an entire miniseries. I feel truly honored and blessed to be able to create something, as dark as it may be. Now, it's time for something new.

The Aeonian is a new challenge for me, but one that I have looked forward to for a long time. It is an ongoing series that revolves around a mysterious man and his ability to stop time for those that dwell around him. Blending mythology, science fiction, and horror, this series is a tribute to many of stories that I grew up reading, as well as some of my favorite movies.

The first four issues will revolve around a family that is trying to figure out how to become ageless. They have the key, but can they open the door?

The image above was drawn by Stan Yak, and colored by Robert Nugent. We have worked together before, on the one shot comic The Last Heist, and in working with them I found a team of dedicated and talented humans who I enjoyed creating with. They will be working on the first 4 issue arc of Aeonian, along with Robin Jones on letters, whom I met on Twitter and who also worked on The Last Heist.

I will be launching a Kickstarter in January in order to allow my readers from all over to pre-order the comic, and will have a few special treats along the way. The book is already in colors, and we are moving along beautifully. My team is amazing!!

Lastly, I want to add that this story came from a dream I had a million lifetimes ago. The dream stuck with me and I knew that I had to find a way vomit it out on paper. The comic medium is perfectly suited to get across the feelings and images from this dream that has haunted me this long. I am truly excited to announce this series and to have such a fantastic group of people working on it with me.

I will be making sure to keep everyone updated through social media and my website as everything progresses, and as we get closer to the Kickstarter you be hearing more details about the series. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this, and for supporting my dream and indie comics.

Eternally Grateful,
Stefani Manard
