In 2008, he collaborated with artist Joanna Estep to publish the short science fiction comic "Reflection".

In 2015 he undertook a Kickstarter campaign to publish a hard cover collection of previous issues of Lackluster World with 100 pages of new material, which he referred to as Lackluster World, the Directors Cut. Between March and April 2015 he received pledges of $10,657 of a target of $10,000 from 247 backers. The projected completion date was estimated as August 2015. Adams noted that there were few risks given that the majority of the material was previously published. [1]

There followed 23 updates. In August he reported that the book was finished and required only the scanning of some early source material and an essay. No comments were forthcoming after January 3, 2018. The project remains unfinished; some backer's money has been returned.
