In January, 2013, independent creators, writer Erica J. Heflin (Grayhaven Comics’ The Gathering, Chronographer, Of Wolf & Woman,Mother & Son; Alterna Comics’ The Black Hand) and artist Amanda Rachels (Arcana Studios’ The Book; Inverse Press’ Clown Town), completed a highly successful crowdsourcing campaign for their comic, Flesh of White #1 (of a 4-issue series), more than doubling their initial funding goal and quickly fulfilling all rewards upon the campaign’s conclusion. Now, as issue 2 of Flesh of White nears readiness for publication, the fundraising campaign for this latest volume is now live on Kickstarter.com!

In Flesh of White #1, young mother, Rehema, and her son with albinism, Kwasi, fled their small and tight-knit community after word of Kwasi’s white flesh filtered back to a local Witch Doctor, who unleashed his Harvester to collect it. Rehema protected Kwasi from the carnage that ensued, but not before they suffered a devastating loss…
NOW, in Flesh of White #2, Rehema and baby Kwasi find refuge in a village hidden in the depths of Tanzania and wholly populated by men and women with albinism, a people dedicated to protect one another from the outsiders who would hunt them for their pigmentless flesh. As we rejoin their little family, it is but a matter of days before the Witch Doctor catches their scent, and they must prepare to fight back.
