Check Out The Silber Bottle Comics
Brian John Mitchell of Silber Media writes...
So I make comics the size of a pack of matches. They're kind of my thing. I've made 63 different ones & distributed about 12,000 of them over the past ten years. Anyway, I saw the "A Saucer of Loneliness" episode of The Twilight Zone where an alien sends a message in a bottle recently & I remembered as a kid writing messages in bottles & sending them into the ocean & how thrilling & exciting it was to think about one day being contacted from them & I realized I wanted to do it with my comics. The idea of a sailor catching a bottle of comics in his net in a hundred years fascinates me. Or someone finding them on the beach & leaving it on their mantle as a conversation piece. Or someone breaking a bottle open & reading the stories & finding out comics aren't just for kids for the first time. But the idea of the immortality of it is what really fascinates me & I know that in order for one of these bottles to be found 1000 years from now I probably need to send out a lot of them & so if you help me I'll put your name in a bottle to be linked with this project forever or you can remain anonymous if you prefer.
I wrote some specific comics for this project that are out with the artists right now. There's mermaid story with a Lovecraftian edge being drawn by Kimberlee Traub (Worms). There's a story about an alcoholic seeking salvation being drawn by Joe Badon (Built). There's a story about a sailor trapped in the purgatory of a ship in a bottle drawn by Jason Young (Veggie Dog Saturn). I'm really excited about the project & that the Kickstarter Campaign can help me get some money together to pay these artists for their work.
Thanks for your time & consideration!
