[FCDoS] All the [SYSTEMS] Comics FREE to read
For one day only. And another special offer...
For those of you who might be visiting the site for the first time due to the Free Comics Day on Substack festivities, welcome. We are 3 Worlds / 3 Moons, a concept universe created by Jonathan Hickman, Mike del Mundo, and Mike Huddleston. You can read more on what we’re all about here, and you can check out a comprehensive index of posts (including all the comics so far) here.
So, for the last few months, we’ve been building something important, the foundational text for our new universe: the [SYSTEMS] Sourcebook, a beautiful 200-page PRINT graphic novel sourcebook, containing 12 comic stories and a host of world-building and process material that was available to our annual and founding subscribers who signed up before April 15. In case this is the first you’re hearing about it, you can read all about it here.
And once that deadline passed, we got to work with our partners at Zoop and the printers to take the book across the finish line.
But in doing so, we hit on something interesting: it actually made more sense to increase the print run slightly on the deluxe hardcover edition of the book for Founders. So we went ahead and did so. What does that mean?
It means we have about 100 extra copies of the [SYSTEMS] Sourcebook Deluxe Hardcover we can make available to new Founding Level Subscribers. We expect these to go VERY quickly, so reserve your copy now by signing up or upgrading to Founder. You’ll get the book FREE with your subscription (shipping not included):
And to help with that decision as well as the FCDoS festivities, today, for one day only, we’re making ten of the twelve comic stories featured in the sourcebook free to read for everyone. These stories feature some of the best artists in comics and highlight important concepts from our new universe.
Here they are for you to enjoy:
DUELS I - art by Jason Howard, Colors by Frank Martin.
DUELS II - art by Jason Howard, Colors by Michael Garland.
TRANSIT - art and colors by Christian Ward.
ASSESSMENT - art by Valentine De Landro, Colors by Marissa Louise.
MINING I - art by Stephen Green, Colors by Michael Garland.
MINING II - art by Stephen Green, Colors by Michael Garland.
SISTERHOOD - art by Langdon Foss, Colors by Michael Garland.
THE LAB - art by Jeremy Haun, Colors by Brennan Wagner.
THE JOB - art and colors by Kristian Donaldson.
BIRTH - art and colors by Vanesa R. Del Rey.
The remaining two stories- ARENA with art by Andy Kuhn and GODS with art by Nimit Malavia will be serialized here on the Substack this month.
If you enjoy these stories, there’s a lot more on the way. So get your copy of the book FREE with a founding level subscription (shipping not included) today:
And a quick update for existing founders: for those who have asked, it looks likely the email to collect your shipping details will be going out THIS week. If it does, we’ll do a post here letting you know so that everyone makes sure to check their inbox. And this extra batch won’t delay your shipping- we’re still on track to get this book in your hands later this summer. The comics are all done, and the whole thing is shaping up beautifully. More soon! - 3W/3M Team
