You know that tall iced soy vanilla latte you were going to buy today? Well, still go buy that. Coffee is important to our souls. However, if you’ve still got a few bucks (or a few thousand bucks) lying around I’d love for you to consider donating to this IndieGoGo campaign…MY IndieGoGo campaign.
As most of you know, over the last couple months I’ve been hard at work on a comic book series that I was hired to co-create and serve as head writer for. This comic book series, W…easelmeizters, is about three intergalactic bounty hunters traversing the galaxy hunting down dangerous criminals and collecting tons of money…oh, they also happen to be weasels wearing stylish jackets and toting big guns. The first issue is geared up for release in September BUT comic books are expensive.
That’s where you come in. We’re aiming for $2,000. Not a lot to ask for considering most of us have donated to KickStarter campaigns asking for, like, $53,000+. We aren’t asking for a lot but it is a lot to us. What are we using these funds for? Well, we could easily make this solely a digital comic. That’s cheap and easy. But digital comics, as convenient as they are, aren’t as cool as an actual physical paper-and-ink comic book. Unfortunately, paper-and-ink comic books are expensive to print….plus, you also have to pay for barcodes in order to sell these books at comic book stores.
What if we make MORE than $2,000? Well, I’ll feel really loved. But we also plan on using any remaining funds on future issue releases, comic con money, etcetera. Any extra money goes STRAIGHT back toward the comic book OR even to help pay for the backer prizes and shipping. We won’t be pocketing a dime of this.
This is still art to us, we aren’t making anything off this. I just want you to read a story, MY story…about three weasels speeding around the galaxy fighting dangerous bad guys and referencing pop stars and professional wrestling.
So, please, dig into your wallet and give me $500,000.
