WHAT IS IT ABOUT:
VACANT is a science fiction web comic following Commander Hayze, an agent of "The Eye" a powerful alien government/ corporate agency. Sent on a seemingly simple rescue mission, Hayze stumbles upon a possible explanation for the near extermination of the human race that had taken place over 100 years prior.
His only lead is a virus and, along with his crew, Hayze tries to find the cure.
WHY AM I RAISING THE MONEY
We hope that this Kickstarter campaign will fund the printing of Issue 1-3 of VACANT. All the issues are fully colored with approximately 17-20 pages each. At the last con we promoted the web comic at, we sold out in 2 day. For future cons, we need a lot more in supply. As of right now, I simply can not afford to print more than I have. As many of us know, printing is very expensive, and any assistance is highly appreciated.
Since it is a webcomic, you may wonder why we need this campaign. Why do we need to print the issues? Truth is, a lot of readers enjoy having a physical copy. They can add it to their collection, have it signed, read it on the subway, and so forth.
WHO ARE YOU?
My name is Heather Nunnelly. I am an illustrator and comic book artist. My personal website is http://imaginetheending.net/. I, along with my assistant writers, started creating VACANT 4 years ago. 2 months ago it was successfully uploaded online. It updates once a month with half an issue on the 1st.
Every Wednesday, I also upload "Ask My Characters a Question". It's a gag comic I draw responding to questions from fans.
You can see those gag comics on VACANT's tumblr.
I HAVE ISSUE 1. WHAT DO I DO?
A lot of people already have Issue 1. If this is the case, let me know and we can figure out a way to exchange it and get your money's worth.
Keep in mind, though, that this is the second printing. A lot of the coloring errors were fixed. If that interests you, a second copy might be worth while.
WHAT PRINTS ARE AVAILABLE?
If you pledge enough to receive a VACANT print as a reward, you can pick from one of these:
Tell me the number associated with the one you want and I'll know which one to send. They are printed on thick glossy paper. They're sturdy and your finger prints won't be left on the surface.
HOW DO I DO THIS?
Kickstarter is easy to learn. Just click "BACK THIS PROJECT" on your right. You will be taken to paying options. Put in the dollar amount you want to donate, and you will receive the reward correlated to it. As stated already on the project, VACANT will not be funded until we reach our goal of $500.
If you donate enough to receive Issue 2 or higher, you will have to wait until September to receive the product. It takes a month for the comics to be printed.
Thanks to everyone who helped! It means so much to me!
