Leaving Megalopolis - Gail Simone Kickstarter

Swancon Guest of Honour Gail Simone has a graphic novel kickstarter with Jim Calafiore called Leaving Megalopolis.


"When the caped heroes of the world's safest city inexplicably all turn into homicidal lunatics, no one is safe.

The only rational thing to do is get the hell out of town. If only it were that easy.....

LEAVING MEGALOPOLIS is a thrilling, original 80 page graphic novel of suspense and terror in a superhero universe gone horribly wrong, where a small band of survivors face the horror of both their formerly beloved protectors, and the dark secrets within themselves. Featuring the creative talents of writer Gail Simone and artist Jim Calafiore this is a story of violence, fear, hope and -- if they're lucky -- survival."

As with most Kickstarter projects, there are several different pledge levels which return an increasing number of rewards. $9 gets you a PDF of the graphic novel, $30 gets you the PDF and a hard copy posted to Australia, and higher pledges include alternate covers, limited edition colour prints, etc.

Estimated delivery for this is listed as February 2013, which would be perfect timing to get your copy personalised by Gail Simone at Swancon 2013!

There are just under three weeks to take advantage of this if you're interested, with it closing on September 14th, so don't miss out on your opportunity to own a copy of Leaving Megalopolis!
