Frederick Douglass Graphic Novel on Kickstarter

Artist Audran Guerard and writer Daniel Roy hope to raise $30,000 on Kickstarter for their comics project, The Life of Frederick Douglass: A Graphic Novel.

The funds will be used to cover the costs of supplies, live models, editing fees, printing, and distribution. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

The Life of Frederick Douglass: A Graphic Novel will be a graphic adaptation of Frederick Douglass’s life based on his two autobiographies: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave and My Bondage, My Freedom. The graphic novel will be composed of three 50-page volumes and will feature gorgeous watercolor art.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
