The Story:  Chatt Weaver hasn't had an easy life and it isn't getting any easier. He manipulates the smoke he breathes out from his cigarettes and solidifies it, creating deadly weapons of justice. Chatt isn't what most expect out of a typical super hero; he doesn't deal with crimes like bank robberies or drug deals, he hates cops, he struggles sometimes with making the morally correct decisions like most normal people. In the graphic novel Chatt will have to make the most important decision of his life, a decision with consequences far beyond what he can grasp.

What makes this special:  In my graphic novel I'll be integrating QR codes that will allow readers to delve deeper into the lives of the characters. When readers scan these codes they'll be taken to an animation that explains the history of a character. The animations, while not necessary to enjoy reading the comic, will help bring the characters to life.

What this money will do: This will cover my printing costs so that I can have 150 issues of the complete 200 page graphic novel. Once I have those printed I'll travel to comic book stores and small book stores and hopefully get them to buy a few. It'll also help prove to me that I'm making something that people like, that's the most important thing.

Risks and challenges

Most of the challenges that I'll be facing will be from my own brain. I have so many ideas for where this project can go, but I have to settle on one. For example I have the book ending in a few ways, I'll have to make a choice in the coming months. There are always unforeseen obstacles that will present themselves but I'm confident that this project is already well on it's way to completion.
