The Anima Island is a transmedia project whose main piece consists of a visual novel (an interactive fiction videogame) which is now in development.
The project narrates the appearance of mysterious creatures in a remote island. They will soon awaken the interest of a curious protagonist that will begin investigating them in order to understand who they are and where they come from.
This comic book works as a prologue for The Anima Island.
It contains a thirtheen-page comic that puts the story in context and presents some of its most important characters, which trigger one of the most important events in the story - the appearance of an unidentified creature and its prosecution by two investigators.
Furthermore, the book includes character sheets about the featured characters' stories and motivations, as well as some exclusive illustrations, sketches of the comic's pages, and explanations on some of the design choices and what they have to do with the rest of the characters in the project.
The comic details are:
44 color pages*

...But the previous rewards weren't all of them! If we reach the following stretch goals, all orders will receive more rewards.

Most of the money raised will be used to cover printing and production costs for the books and merchandise. The rest will cover shipping and packaging costs, as well as campagin and payment fees.
This is an estimate of the calendar this project will follow:
June 14th: the campaign ends. Production begins.
End of June: books are received and shipments are prepared.
First weeks of July: all orders are shipped, PDFs are sent to all backers**.
Mid July: rewards begin arriving at the backers' addresses. Shipments within Spain take about a week, while international shipping takes from one to four weeks.
** In case the stretch goals are reached, the time of production will increase by two to four weeks.
