A Kickstarter landed in my inbox that I thought sounded pretty great.  Think War of the Worlds but in a quaint English village.  It wasn’t just the concept that grabbed me.  Looking at the artwork for Milford Green really blew me away.  LOOK AT THIS!!!

The artwork is literally INSANELY GOOD.  What is the book about you ask?  Here’s the synopsis: Apart from winning “Prettiest Village in the British Empire, 1897” Milford Green is a normal village in the rolling hills of Southern England. That is until on one summer’s evening, Alfie Fairfield, a socially awkward inventor, sees some kind of flying vehicle shoot across the sky and crash land into a field. Being a curious fellow who is interested in any type of machinery, Alfie investigates to find out that we are not alone in this universe.

Says Milford Green’s writer/creator Samuel George London,

“I came up with the idea of Milford Green last summer. I was walking in the hills of Hampshire when a vision of an alien spacecraft shot across the sky right in front of me. I couldn’t get this image out of my head, and over the following months a story about where this vision came from formed in my head.  By November I wrote a script for the story, and by December I found an artist who is a perfect fit for the art of both the Victorian era and aliens.”

As you can see, artist Mikael Hankonen’s artwork is fantastic – though it makes me wonder if he’ll go to Arrakis after this (it’s a nerdy sci-fi joke…play along, people!!!) . This Kickstarter is already very close to its goal and I’m sure it’ll reach it shortly thanks to a great plot and stupendous artwork.
