NEW ANTHOLOGY DARES TO IMAGINE A BRIGHTER FUTURE
New York, NY, June 4th, 2018. A Wave Blue World announces the launch of the Kickstarter campaign for its latest anthology, ALL WE EVER WANTED: Stories of a Better World. This full color collection features a cover by Ariela Kristantina (Insexts, Mata Hari) and contains over 25 stories meant to inspire us and restore the belief that a brighter future is possible.
The anthology is edited by Matt Miner (Gwar, Poser) and Erik Palicki (No Angel, Orphans), who, alongside A Wave Blue World, have spearheaded a combined 12 successful kickstarter campaigns, delivering four previous anthologies. Together they’ve gathered an impressive list on contributors, ranging from experienced veterans to some of the most ambitious new voices working in comics. All of them are eager to share their hopeful visions of the future.
Publisher Tyler Chin-Tanner explains, “Popular fiction moves in cycles. Recently, it’s mostly been stories of dystopian futures, which serve as a warning of what might come. But now I think we’re past the point of warnings. People are starting to get depressed. We need to show them a light at the end of the tunnel. That’s our motivation for creating this anthology.”
