Kickstarter Press Release

Artist Hoang Nguyen Launches Kickstarter Campaign for final chapter of Carbon Grey

SAN JOSE, California – May 13, 2013. Artist Hoang Nguyen is today launching a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the final volume of his epic series Carbon Grey.

An epic story of family and duty set against the backdrop of a great war, vividly realized through beautiful fully painted artwork, Carbon Grey has been Nguyen’s labor of love for over ten years. In 2010 the project came to the attention of Image Comics, who published the first volume to critical acclaim in March 2011.

After self-funding the project for almost a decade Nguyen last year looked to fans of Carbon Grey and the Kickstarter community at large for support. The campaign was a success, raising over $40,000 and enabling Nguyen and his creative team to complete a second three-issue volume, also published by Image.

Now, Nguyen is preparing to bring his 11-year journey to a close with the third and final volume of the Carbon Grey saga. With the original creative team of Khari Evans (Daughters of the Dragon, Thor, Harbinger), Kinsun Loh, Paul Gardner (Afro Samurai, Splatterhouse) and Nguyen himself all committed to the project Hoang is turning once more to the Kickstarter community to help fund production.

“I was so grateful to the Kickstarter organization and community – they provided a real lifeline when I needed it", said Nguyen. “Without their support Carbon Grey Volume Two might never have been realized. We worked hard to deliver a final product that would justify their faith in us. I’m hoping that all those who generously contributed before will once again lend us their support and help me to bring the story of the Sisters Grey to a conclusion.”
