Thank you all for helping us make the seventh issue a reality! We couldn't have done it without your support! We're close to the first stretch and trust us, you'll really dig it.
Fist of Justice was the super-heroic defender of Charm City until he made a fatal mistake that ended his career. He threw in the towel and was locked away and soon forgotten. But his power -- though dormant -- did not leave him. Now it has returned and resurrected FOJ -- restoring him as defender of a city dealing with the new villains of the 21st century. Villains who are tougher, stronger, and meaner than ever.
STORY INFO FOR THIS ISSUE (#7):
After last issue's surprise ending, can Ellison Maximillan be trusted? What's going on at the Kane Institute? Can Dr. Benson help Blaze control his powers and is Carl okay? What's delivered in the mail that has Harlan so surprised? And just what's the deal with this flying misanthrope that has his sights set directly on Fist of Justice? We've got questions -- you want answers and they're all inside issue #7!
Creating comics is expensive! Not only do we have talent fees, there's printing, packaging and shipping. It all adds up to some incredible costs. Costs we couldn't afford to keep doing on our own, so we're looking for your help.
Kickstarter allows us to reach a wider audience beyond our limited convention appearances and local comic shop distribution. The comic industry's main distributor is Diamond Comics and we tried that route with Fist of Justice for several issues, but it ultimately became financially impossible for us to keep the comic series going in that direction. So we're going direct to our fans via Kickstarter. It's where we get to interact with FOJ supporters just like you!
Our funding goal for this issue is extremely low since we already paid the talent fees. We just need help on printing and reward costs. All extra funding will go towards talent fees on the next issue, plus new rewards, and some cool stretch goals we have planned.
If you were able to participate in our first Kickstarter, you experienced first-hand all the extra goodies we tossed at you for supporting us. That will continue here as we surpass our funding goal.
One of the stretch goals we discussed was including FOJ #8 with all pledges for FOJ #7. Let's see if we can make that happen!
Creators: Mike Imboden and Ed Dukeshire - Mike writes, Ed letters (but has plans to take over the art chores starting with issue #8)! Yeah, you read that right. So let's do this! We. Are. Digital Webbing!
Artist: Pow Rodrix - Pow has drawn for Marvel and DC on titles such as Justice League America, Wolverine, Lady Death. He most recently finished Joe Martino's Red Anvil comic Cyberine, hey, that's a hint that all Joe's supporters should jump on this book too! Pow is also offering a commission of any character you want as one of our rewards this time. Don't miss it!
Colorist: Edemilson Alexandre - Edemilson has colored our last issue and this issue (the panels you see above are from this issue). He's a great find! He gives FOJ a great new school look you can't miss!
Copy Editor: Mike Exner III - Mike helps keep us on our toes, to be as clear as possible with our stories. Without him, we'd be like those indy comics that have spelling errors or missing words!
Cover Colorist: Matt Webb - Matt has been working on FOJ with us since day one. He colored the very first story and several flashback sequences for us, as well as our Kickstarter prints. He is now officially part of Team Justice with our covers!
Art Print Artist: Morgan Welborn - Morg drew the print being offered as part of the FOJ #7 package in this Kickstarter. He actually drew this for us last time and we wanted to make a poster out of it, but weren't able to. Now we have the next best thing; a print!
Our digital rewards come in your choice of either a PDF or through the awesome ComiXology app. We've got you covered!
To get YOU to hop on board QUICK, we're giving away FREE goodies for every 50 pledges. So pledge early to get EVERY THING! The second pledge bonus unlocks once we hit 51 backers.
Risks and challenges
There is NO risk. you WILL get your comics. The issue is pretty much finished with the exception of some edits and lettering. Then it's off to the printer! We don't anticipate any challenges this time since we have a successful Kickstarter campaign under our belt and were schooled about shipping supplies and postage costs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
