Tom and Nimue Brown, along with Outland Entertainment, are on Kickstarter with a new hardcover edition of Hopeless Maine Book One: Personal Demons. The graphic novel is set on an island off the coast of Maine that is “cut off from the rest of the world and lost in time.” It’s a coming-of-age story about Salamandra, a “child who is not a child” with magical powers.

Outland Entertainment, a Kansas City publisher, announced last year that it had acquired the series, which includes novels in addition to comics.

The new 144-page edition features a new cover, new lettering, and revamped graphic design. The publisher plans to print 1000 copies. Rewards also include an RPG based on the series.

The campaign launched March 23 and is well past its $5500 fundraising goal. It runs through April 22. See the Kickstarter page and website for more info.
