Welcome to Hell...

Written by Joshua Yancey & Casey Wooden, "Hellbound" is a horror tinged psychological adventure through the afterlife which draws heavily on history and religion to create a new vision of Hell. Typically, a graphic novel would be put out through a publisher or self-distributed. Both options represent different financial challenges and we are hoping to use Kickstarter to alleviate some of the risks by getting people involved at the outset to determine whether an audience exists for this title or not. If enough people pledge $2, this will basically be a pre-order for issue #2 and we can get started on it. We hope to continue releasing new issues on a monthly basis but it all depends on generating an audience, so please tell your friends.


Risks and challenges

A great deal of time (2 years) has been spent perfecting the workflow for this project which includes a suite of programs like Daz Studio, Blender, Sketchup, Photoshop and Illustrator in order to speed up the process. Issue #1 is available for free at www.hellbound-graphic-novel.com and you can see the results of this system. It is because of the effort put into streamlining the process that we can say with a fair amount of confidence that there will be no delays or other problems with delivery of Issue 2. The characters have already been created and most of the story has been written. All we need is an audience.
