Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight: Skies Over Superior

Skies over Superior - Kickstarter

Skies Over Superior is a comic book about Merilee Fite, a girl facing ghosts and monsters on the icy shores of Lake Superior.

But it’s also about the strength of family and crushing effects of depression and mental illness.

But it’s also about power of music, and the power of stories, to bring people together.

But, it’s also about the power of monsters to crush and tear people apart.
