Nikola Tesla Graphic Novel Featured on Kickstarter

Writer Abigail Samoun and artist Elizabeth Haidle have teamed up to create a graphic novel profiling the life of celebrated scientist, Nikola Tesla. They hope to raise $7,450 on Kickstarter to self-publish Mind Afire: The Visions of Nikola Tesla. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “Our project arose from a mutual fascination with this odd and brilliant man. We thought the spectacular events of Nikola Tesla‘s life begged for a graphic treatment, so we have been working away at our illustrated biography. It will be published as a 64-page paperback for teens and adults, also a digital e-book in the form of a PDF.”

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.
