Welcome to issue 3 of the Age of Comics Gazette and thank you for joining/staying with us in this adventure.
One week to go!
We are just A WEEK away from our 19th September Kickstarter launch and life has been hectic at the Age of Comics central as we prepare for the big day.
We are getting the latest quotes from the manufacturer, updating our shipping cost estimates, and working (literally) night & day on the campaign page.
Here's Giacomo (one-half of Lirius Games) working on the graphics for the Kickstarter page.
And while we were busy working, we went over 2,000 people on the Kickstarter pre-launch page and over 1,000 followers on Instagram. Wow! We are honored that so many people are interested in this project. Thanks again for following along!
And now some exciting announcements...
New art by 6 very special guests
We have invited (and they have kindly accepted) 6 comic book artists to develop 6 new cards (one for each comic book genre in the game), which will introduce a new variant to the gameplay. Comic book geeks out there, just check out this line-up and some of the publishers they have been working for (😲):
Glénat, Boom! Studios, Soleil, Mondadori, Acheron, Panini, Raven, Aftershock, Magic Press, and Liquid Comics, among others
Vertigo /DC Comics (DMZ, Batman, American Vampire, Legends of the Dark Knight, Mad Max: Fury Road), among others

We teamed up with Board Game Revolution (BGR) for a pre-launch worldwide giveaway of Age of Comics.
Keep an eye on BGR and our social media (Facebook, Instagram) this week and enter the draw for a chance to win a copy of the game!
Previews, Tutorials & Playthroughs
We have a few exciting video previews/ tutorials prepared to go live very soon. And worry not if English is not your mother tongue. There will be videos also in French, German, Spanish, and Italian. (And hopefully more languages in the future. Portuguese, Dutch, Polish... anyone?)
That's all for now.
We will return with a new special gazette next week.
In the meantime, keep playing (including testing our solo mode!) and, if we may ask, keep spreading the word about Age of Comics :)
Until very soon 🤞
Sónia & Giacomo
