KICKSTARTER ALERT: Alter-Life Issue 4 of 5: a Mind-Bending Sci-Fi Comic Series

What if death is not the end, but merely the beginning of infinite possibilities? With Alter-Life, death is just a moment in existence.


You can continue your journey with Issue 4 or start from the beginning by grabbing all 4 issues. If you are new to the series, fret not. We have both digital and physical reward options to catch you up on the story!

These are not your typical 22-26 page comics. Each issue ranges from 32-40 pages. These 4 Issues together are over 140 pages of beautiful artwork by Katrina E. Kunstmann with a story exploring the limits of human consciousness, multiple existences, and life after death. You can catch up on the full series digitally and make your eyes bleed with joy for just $7.00!


As a special treat, and as a show of confidence in the series, you can Read Issue #1 for FREE throughout the campaign. I implore you… give the series a chance. Read Issue 1 and I promise you will want to dive into the rest of the series and help us complete this story.


5 Mini posters of ALL Variant Covers so far, and a few other badass posters including an exclusively designed 8 x 12 signed by Katrina E. Kunstmann. These are all I have left of most of these posters!!


This is a tragic tale of a man named Jake. He is an average guy who has dreams of being a successful writer.  Reeling from the recent loss of both his wife and daughter and ready to give up on his dreams and his existence, Jake decides to take his own life. 

Through this action, he discovers that he cannot die. Again and again he returns and every time he does, the world around him is slightly different…

Issue 4 – The Beginning of the End (spoilerish)

With the mystery revealed, a new perspective will be explored. Jake’s brother, Robert has been searching for him. Longing to tell him the truth about what happened the fateful night of the accident that changed everything. Alter-Life is real, and it is the last hope for Jake to see his family again.

The Issue 4 Variant Cover was created by Josh Siegel of modHERO. I have to admit, I have been a huge fan of his work for a number of years, and I’m super excited to get a chance to have his beautiful artwork grace the pages of Alter-Life.
