Small World Comes to Kickstarter from Toru Terada and Magnetic Press on April 6

Small World Kickstarter

Magnetic Press has announced their latest exciting Kickstarter campaign, a dark sci-fi fantasy tale for grown-ups called Small World, by written by JD Morvan and illustrated by celebrated mangaka Toru Terada!

Small World mixes elements of anime-inspired futurism with the gritty flair rolled up into a vice-filled version of a European children’s book. Not only is the blend of elements wholly unique, but the book is also the only full-length graphic novel by popular mangaka Toru Terada.

To further complement the originality of the book, Magnetic Press is offering an exclusive, campaign-only variant edition featuring a brand-new cover by in-demand comic artist Peach Momoko. This variant edition will only be available through the Kickstarter campaign. Furthermore, fans can pre-register their support to receive an exclusive, Limited Edition 8.5×11” Linen Cardstock Print of Peach’s cover art for FREEOne lucky backer can even purchase Peach’s original 11×15” watercolor painting

Plus, all backers who pledge on the first day will receive a bonus exclusive, Limited Edition 8.5×11” Linen Cardstock Print by Toru Terada. That’s TWO FREE PRINTS for pre-registering and backing on Day-1! Toru will also create 30 original drawings for lucky backers at a limited tier level. 

Magnetic Press is also offering several other “manga-adjacent” books to the campaign – titles that would appeal to true mangaphiles while introducing global art styles influenced by the medium — including a brand-new edition of the sold-out ZAYA by JD Morvan and Korean wunderkind Huang-Jai Wei.

Pledge on Day-1 for your FREE print when the campaign launches at 10am CST Tuesday April 6th.
