After our successful bid to produce volume one of the Caribbean Blue webcomic, we are now pleased to offer the second book of this three part series!

Welcome Back to the Island!

Long ago, the island of Caribbean Blue was besieged by a terrible evil, but in their darkest hour, when all seemed lost, a lone warrior rose up and saved the natives from certain destruction.

Peace ensured for centuries, that is, until they arrived...

During a seemingly idyllic vacation, a trio of friends have found themselves caught up in this local legend. After all, they too had the same feline traits, such as were described in the monoliths scattered around the island. Could this be a sign that the great evil might also be returning once more?

Volume two of Caribbean Blue continues as Nekonny, Tina and Yuki uncover more clues to the mystery of this "Nekocat" guardian and discover that there's more to this legend than than tall tales and cement statues.

Missed out on Volume One? Here's your second chance to get a copy!

Our Goal:

Is to have a raise money to print and ship a second volume of the Caribbean Blue webcomic, as well as a reprint of Volume One for those of you who may have missed out on our first Kickstarter.  As before, a lot of work needs to go into getting this new book ready for print; cleaned up artwork and text, formatted pages, new cover art, bonus content... you get the idea.

Oh, the comic is going to be 107 pages in full color (save for some guest comics) and will be printed in a nice 5.25" by 7.5" manga format; the perfect size to be right at home in your bookshelf!

Funds will also be used to purchase new equipment used for creating the comic, such as a new monitor (my current one is burning out) and possibly a tablet if we do well enough. So your contribution not only gets you cool stuff, it also helps me continue to produce art and comics!

New to Caribbean Blue?

No problem! You can read the full comic here, but do keep in mind the artwork gets better as the story goes on (one of the reasons I've been updating the earlier pages). If you're a fan of manga style artwork, comedy and a dash of fan-service, you should find it very enjoyable.

Kickstarter?

Here is the gist of it. We have 35 days to reach our goal of $18,000. You can pledge any amount you like! There are some sweet rewards available for you to chose from if you pledge above a certain amount. Heck, even after we hit our goal you may still contribute as long as there's time left on the clock! (I can always order a larger print run). But once time runs out, some of those extras might never be available again!

However, If we don't hit our goal, you guys don't have to pay anything. Of course, that also means that the project doesn't go forward... and there won't be a print! (and Tina goes awwwwww~ ;_;)

Anything else I can do to help?

There's actually another area we could really use your help in. From the moment you see this, help spread the word. It was thanks to the support of our fans in letting people know about the first Kickstarter that pushed us over the top, and I'm asking for that help once again. Become my personal hero! XD

SHIPPING:
While shipping is included for rewards sent within the continental US, there is a little extra that needs to be added for locations in other countries. When you pledge for a reward that requires international shipping, make sure to check the box to add it in!

And what's next?

As in the first time around, the comic will be posted online to be sold after this project completes all of its reward obligations, but there won't be any of the extra goodies that we see listed here.

Depending on the success of this project, the final volume might be released around the same time the comic itself draws to a close, sometime in mid to late 2014.

Risks and challenges

After gaining a lot of experience from our first successful kickstarter, I have become much better at estimating costs, development and reward completion time.

I am confident that we can once again exceed the expectations of our backers and have them come back to support us for our future projects.
