ICARUS will be a 4-issue monthly comic, available in a digital format, for only $.99 each.
ICARUS follows U.S.M.C. Major Robert Riley on his exploits to track and assassinate all super-powered beings on Earth. Things aren’t all that they seem in Riley’s world: Girls that can see the future, alien invasions and government conspiracies all play a part in this twisting and turning adventure. When Big Brother decides to put its foot down, Riley is there to chop it off.

The goal of this Kickstarter is to provide me with the opportunity to produce a 4-issue miniseries. I write, illustrate and letter every page. The funds from this campaign will allow me to work on the book full-time, for 4 months. At the end of the four months a trade will be produced that will be priced at $12 or less. So, if I am given the opportunity to make the mini series, the reader can choose to read the four issues for only $4, or get the digital issues and buy the trade at the end for roughly just $16.
For every $2000 I am lucky enough to go over my minimum pledge amount, I will continue to produce an issue, every month. $1 monthly digital comics can work, let's give this experiment the chance to make it work. There are no zero reward contributions on this drive, for the minimum amount of only $4, you receive a digital subscription for all 4 issues of the mini-series.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
