When a company called Newton conjures a way to restore gravity. You can imagine the problems this will cause. At street level, a gang is terrorizing civilians. In the middle of all this is Holli. Once the face of Tycho, Holli now finds herself thirty years in the future braving an unfamiliar world. With the Neton company’s ceremony to restore gravity back to New York in less than 24 hours, and a paralyzing illness weighing her down, Holli must find her father and discover her destiny before time is up.

    I think that is a totally cool idea! I really like the incentives the creators give for the more you donate. Not only does the comic look cool, but the idea behind Kickstarter, I think, is very fantastic. I’ll be checking this site out more extensively.
