What is Boundless?
Boundless is our love letter to science: a comics anthology that celebrates, explores, and infuses science into tales about our real (and imagined) world. Our goal is to present stories that are both informative and engaging, beautiful yet accurate, and ultimately compelling in their depiction of all the wondrous allure science so regularly brings to our lives.
The anthology consists of 32 different pieces from nearly 40 artists and writers exploring a whole host of scientific processes, technologies, methods, and historical moments in a number of fields including biology, medicine, physics, optics, and astronomy, among others. This anthology aims to examine the many facets of science as well as act as a tool for educating comics enthusiasts and science buffs of all ages.
Our goal is to raise enough money to cover the printing costs of the book as well as pay our artists and writers. We’ll be beginning at $10 per page and increasing with each stretch goal we complete. The more we raise, the more our artists and writers can be paid!
Who are we?
The Boston Comics Roundtable (BCR) is the oldest and largest community of independent comic creators and cartoonists in the Boston area.
We encourage development and collaboration and welcome anyone interested in creating or publishing comics, at all ages and levels of experience. Our weekly meetings revolve around discussions of news in comics, showing of members’ work, and the professional development of everyone involved.
Since 2006, BCR has published a number of anthologies spanning a range of topics including urban fantasy, horror, superheroes, science fiction, romance, food, and the greatest of all time.
This time we turn to hard science in the hopes of publishing a informative, gorgeous, and engaging anthology.
As a volunteer-based, not-for-profit organization, we don’t have much funding and so we’re turning to Kickstarter. We want to bring this beautiful book to life and we want to be able to pay our contributors for all their time and effort. With your help, we’ll be able to accomplish both!
