What sort of comic is this?
Bounty Haunters Book I contains all 98 full color pages plus a sketch book section never seen before. It will also contain all the promotional images I created announcing the update of each chapter. In total, the book will be about 115 pages long.While the comic is up for view on amiarmy.com, the book was created with the intent of print publishing. The colors will become richer and crisper once printed as a graphic novel.
What is this comic about?
Bounty Haunters is an online comic about a young woman named Jackson (Jax) and her obsession with hunting down anything paranormal. Turns out, much to her dismay, that she is the worlds WORST ghost hunter. Good thing she has a partner who just happens to be dead.
Gray Stone is a Ghost with a past. Too bad he can’t remember most of it. Cursed to stay trapped between worlds until he remembers his real name, he and Jax team up to hunt down all manner of ghostly manifestations, everything from nice little old ladies to killer spirits happy to devour human souls.
Based off of the authors extensive travels of the United States and beyond, the Bounty Haunters explore many of the more extraordinary and forgotten parts of American history. Along the way they encounter not only ghosts, but the living frauds that feed off of humanity’s need to believe in the hereafter.
Part fun adventure, part historical education, part thought provoking exploration of science and the real world, Bounty Haunters is a fun read for everyone.
How Much Are You Trying To Raise, and how will the money be spent?
Estimates from several print houses average out at around $2,300 for printing, binding, listing and delivery costs. All funds raised beyond this cost will go directly into the production of book 2 and the subsequent 4 remaining volumes of this series.
How Close to completion is Book One?
Book one is complete. The only work still to do on it is some retouching of some art, a bit of spelling correction, and back and front cover designs.Once funding is successful, I hope to have the book from the publisher in 3 months or less.
To cover additional shipping costs, international backers please add:
$5 to a pledge of $15 or more
$5 to a pledge of $25 or more
$8 to a pledge of $50 or more
$15 to a pledge of $150 or more
What are the limited edition prints?
The Limited edition prints are 2 pieces of artwork created specifically for Kickstarter Backers only. These two prints will NEVER be for sale. The only way to get one of these is to back the project.
Print one is the reward for a pledge of $100 or more
Print two is the reward for a pledge of $125 or more. With this you also get Print one.
What happens if we raise more money than the goal amount rewards wise?
If we raise more money than the original goal amount, I will set benchmarks for more rewards. For example, if we raise $2,500, then everyone who has backed Bounty Haunters Book One will receive an extra reward added onto the existing reward they have already earned. Extra rewards will range from special Backers Only badges for my fan club (the Ami Army) all the way to multiple prints of my other art work. I will post more as the funding grows.
Amelie is Ah-Meh-Lee
Belcher is just like the bodily function.
Yes...that is the name my mom and dad gave me...and YES 4th grade was awful.
Book 2 which will be updating on my website. From this point on in the series, the books will be divided into 2 separate stories: one investigation in part 1 and the second in part 2. If you have chosen the $300 reward, you will appear in part 2 which should be up for view by the last quarter of the year (convention appearance down time taken into account.)
I have several locations in the script that need naming such as Hospitals, Museums, Haunted ships, Libraries, Theaters, etc...
After the fundraising is over, I will send you a list from which to choose from.
HOWEVER, if you have an idea for a haunted site that you would really like your name on and I can easily work it into the comic, I will most defiantly be willing to work that in.
