WHAT IS PENNY FOR YOUR SOUL?
Penny for Your Soul follows the grand-daughter of Lucifer himself, and her bid to claim the souls of mankind for herself, rather than allow them to join the armies of Heaven or Hell. Danica has set up a hotel and casino in Las Vegas and offers to buy her patrons sould for ten thousand dollars! Most belive it’s simply a marketing gimmick and are quick to cash in, while others are concerned with what happens to their soul when they die. The answer? They return to the Babylon Hotel and work for Danica…for Eternity.
Danica has raided Purgatory for anyone any anything that may be valuable to her cause. Souls of all kinds are stuck there having not lived a life quite of worth to get them to either Heaven or Hell. Others found themselves there from deals struck thousands of years ago. That’s why Danica found Mary Magdalene in Purgatory.
This new series picks up where volume 3 left off, but have no worries. I always write these volumes with new readers in mind. You will catch up quickly with this first issue of what will be a 7 issue series. But if you’d like to read the previous volumes, we have them available as both digital downloads and physical trade paperbacks. You choose how you’d like to dive into the deep end of Penny for Your Soul.
WHAT'S BEEN SAID ABOUT THE SERIES?
"Oh my lord, Adam and Eve as hawkers of a timeshare paradise? Brilliant. It’s the little things that add a lot to the comic." - Karyn Pinter, comicsbulletin.com
"Tom Hutchison writes a really well told story. The concept is interesting and I can’t help but feel that the first few pages are the intro to a movie being narrated by Christian Slater." - Brian, majorspoilers.com
"...this comic isn't afraid to take plenty of pot-shots at politicians popular culture, and of course religion--and for that I tip my hat to publisher Big Dog Ink." - David Bitterbaum, thenewestrant.com
"Simply put, Penny for Your Soul is a witty, sexy, fun, lovely, and insightful comic book that is well-worth the cover price." - Steven Surman, brokenfrontier.com
Tom Hutchison returns as the Penny for Your Soul creator and writer. He is joined by returning series artist JB Neto and new series colorist Whitney Cook. Tom and JB have worked together since the first days of Big Dog Ink and Whitney has colored covers for BDI over artists like Jen Broomall and Ryan Kincaid.
Jason Metcalf, BillMcKay and Ashley Benson are all the new kids on the block and are proding their very first BDI covers! Jason has worked for Zenescope most recently, while Bill is a standard on Action Lab’s Zombie Tramp! Ashley was just recently discovered online and her debut with Penny for Your Soul is also her very first comic book cover ever!
Rob Duenas, Ryan Kincaid and Sam Sawyer have all worked for BDI before. Rob is a workhorse for BDI doing cover work for Penny for Your Soul: False Prophet, Critter and most recently Lights…Camera…Jungle! Ryan recently joined up with his Lights…Camera…Jungle! cover as well and is now presenting the first of a 7 piece set of the Babylon Hotel’s bar scene! Sam did her first cover, also for the the Jungle book, and most recently Kaiju Epic! Sam’s contribution for this campaign will be revealed at the proper time!
WHY KICKSTARTER AND WHY NOW ?
As always this is an easy answer. Freedom to create. We've been itching to get Penny going again and KICKSTARTER allows for these types of projects to find an audience quickly and efficiently. But now, with the comic book market so saturated with books, and retailers having to make hard choices on what to stock every single week, we have the opportunity to deal diretly with you, the fans. You are why we do this, and we want to work together with you to bring the stories you all have supported back to life!
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Right where it needs to go. Towards the creation of this book. The artists, colorists, letters, designers and, of course, the printer. It also includes things like shipping supplies and taxes and the like.
While the books offered in this campaign are called rewards, think of it more as simply pre-ordering what you want to receive. You’re buying these special, limited edition items and you’ll receive them as soon as the book lands in our hands from the printer. We are estimating a November shipping date, barring any unforeseen setbacks on production. All domestic orders receive FREE SHIPPING! Check the shipping costs if you’re outside the U.S.

NOW FOR THE GOOD STUFF!
Let’s start this off by showing you the actual book! It’s little over half way done artistically. JB will be finished in the next couple of week and Whitney is rocking the colors! This means the book will be finished by the time the campaign ends letting us go straight to print and getting the book in your hands within a couple months of our campaigns finish! This is some of JB’s best work and Whitney really brings it all to life!
Risks and challenges
The risks involved in this particular project are minimal. The script is written, is over halfway finished with art, Whitney is coloring and HDE is lettering. The book is underway and WILL be completed. We are aiming for a December shipping period, and that is the only, semi-possible “risk”. Artists get sick, printers make mistakes, and acts of God occasionally delay our ability to get a book into your hands. But we set up our timeline to be sure the book is finished before or at the same time the campaign finishes! Which means we order our stretch goals and push GO on the printer and get the book rolling in mid November to be able to start shipping in December! There’s nothing better than comic books under the Christmas tree!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
