Minority-Based Graphic Novel The Space Between Was Featured in the Company’s Booth

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, December 6, 2021 / -- Backpack Comics concluded their first appearance at the convention L.A. Comic Con this past weekend, December 3 - 5, 2021. Featured in the booth was the publisher’s newest graphic novel, The Space Between (TSB) with merchandise containing the novel’s characters. Backpack Comics attended the convention with the intent to increase funding for the TSB project through a Kickstarter Campaign and to introduce it to comic book and graphic novel fans from all over the world.

The Kickstarter Campaign was launched to help raise money for this first new graphic novel series, which will help to create and establish a platform for minorities to come together and tell stories that more authentically represent them. The goal of this campaign is $65,000 within a 60-day period. Unlike other fundraising campaigns, every donor will receive a digital copy of “The Space Between – Origin Story”. For those looking to really get things going and are into collecting limited edition merchandise, there are various tiers that include merchandise such as limited-edition box sets, t-shirts, sweaters, backpacks, and much more.

About The Space Between
From the creative mind of Writer, Director, and Producer Donell Nelson, comes the new Backpack Comics publishing company with its brand-new series, The Space Between (TSB). TSB is a fun, energetic, and empowering story that follows 2 orphaned 12-year-olds, Protan and Neutrina, as they learn to live life as part of the “foster care system” all while discovering they each have their own set of new and powerful abilities. This four-Volume (16 total comic books) graphic novel series sets the stage for “A New Generation Of Heroes” as well as villains and unimaginable allies. TSB will feature artwork and illustrations by professionals from the Marvel and DC comics universe.

About Backpack Comics
Backpack Comics was founded to provide an alternative space for minorities to produce original and authentic stories of fantasy to excite the imagination. The comic book space is very popular in the minority communities, but the representation is wholly out of balance. As the founder, being a storyteller myself, I wanted to have this space for myself as well. I have assembled artists and comic book veterans, previously employed with Marvel & DC comics, with more than 20-years of experience to produce The Space Between. We are excited about the space we have created and look forward to the journey.
