MYSTERY GOAL ACHIEVED!!!!!!!
Next big goal unlocked and another MYSTERY GOAL to come! If we hit $6500 (which is SO close), we unlock the Pin-Up Gallery and Short Story addition to issue one! Already locked in for pin-ups are Chris Fenoglio (colorist of Red City and artist on Weird Kids) and Matt Merhoff (Mercy Sparx) and more to come! *Add in Carl Yonder (cover artist extraordinaire for Solitary as well as artist of Pirate Noir)! He'll also be doing Short Story on top of his pin-up!! Other notices have gone out and more will follow!!!
The Short Stories will be announced soon (from a number of different amazing artists with vastly different and fun styles) and will focus specifically on different eras for the characters involved.
Next MYSTERY GOAL to be announced following! Let's do this!!!
At $5000, everyone who has pledged $20 or more will receive a poster or sticker set. The choice is yours and will be made available once we hit $5000 (and you'll choose via the surveys at the end)!
At $6000, everyone who has pledged $20 or more will receive a digital copy of issue two FOR FREE plus the sticker set or poster. Once we hit $6000, issue two will ALSO become available as a separate sale item as well!
Once the $6000 goal has been met, a new MYSTERY STRETCH GOAL will appear and will knock your socks off!

Hello! My name is CW Cooke and I've been working in independent comics since 2007. I've worked with companies like Big Dog Ink, Devil's Due, Action Lab, Arcana, Viper, and Bluewater as well as in the self-published realm of comics.
Now with the help of art team Nando Souzamotta, Greg & Fake Studio, and Carl Yonder, we're working hard to bring my newest idea to life.
"A promising new comic that explores the tragic reality of sin while speculating on the horrors of immortality. A book to keep your eyes on."
-Vince Hernandez, Vice President and Editor-In-Chief, Aspen Comics
Orange Is The New Cape:
Solitary is the story of Tim Hill, a man convicted to death row for crimes he didn't commit. He is executed, and upon being executed, he awakens to find that he is immortal and death row is really going to suck.
This book, Solitary, is my baby. It's the one comic I've been working on for my entire life in one way or another. It started as a comic I wrote and drew myself as a kid and blossomed into this entire world that I need your help to bring to life.
I've put a lot of my own money into making this book and have received an agreement from comic publisher Devil's Due Entertainment to publish the series, but first the creative team and I need to deliver on getting the series finished.
By pledging you're helping us see the series through to issue four. We're keeping our rewards focused around issue one, to keep this campaign simple, but we'll be sure to update you whenever new issues are available as well, and try to come up with some extra perks down the line to remember the backers who helped make this book's launch possible.

Risks and challenges
The first issue is completely drawn and is in the process of being colored and lettered now. The series is being submitted as an ongoing series and the second issue is also complete.
The only issues or setbacks that might come up at this point would be in relation to certain rewards and taking a bit of time to get them completed. The book is done, the colors are being completed, so getting it printed and delivered and all the rewards sent out is really the only challenge we face.
I am very open and honest. If something is taking time, I'm an easy person to find and I'm more than willing to admit to my mistakes and to make them right.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
You can add any reward you want to your existing pledge. All you have to do is add that pledge amount to your current pledge level and you're all set. When the surveys are submitted, we would just need to know what you added to the reward itself! This includes issue two which is available to add as a $3 increase for digital and a $5 increase for print.
It means more pages for you! The short stories and pin-ups should be from some familiar faces and from some up and coming artists who you will want to know. No increase in price to the first issue, just an increase in pages!!
I did indeed. There will be a number of t-shirt options at the end of the funding. The one you see on this page PLUS a shirt that mimics the front cover of the book with different color options. Working on getting an image up on the site for it now, but it should reflect the front cover of issue one, including those numbers.
