When a pirate-loving little boy named Flynn comes across the fabled Treasure of Padre Tiempo, he's transported back in time to the Golden Age of Piracy where he comes face to face with his hero: legendary pirate captain, Blackjack McCoy. However, Blackjack isn't exactly the brave buccaneer Flynn knows him to be... in fact, Blackjack McCoy may be the worst pirate of all time... Now it's up to Flynn to help his hero and find his way home!
Pirates of Padre Tiempo is a high seas adventure meant for families to enjoy. There is no cursing or gore so it’s appropriate for kids, but there’s still plenty of danger and adventure to keep it exciting for children and adults alike! Each issue is 28 pages in full color.
In May of 2016, I published issue #1 with a small print run and immediately began working on issue #2. The purpose of this Kickstarter campaign is to do a larger print run on issue #2 and do a smaller second printing of issue #1.
You can check out a 14-page B&W preview (originally released in 2015) of issue #1 HERE.

Risks and challenges
Issue #2 is not complete-- yet! But the best part about this project is that it's a passion project for me. There is no way I'm going to leave it incomplete. I'll be updating frequently throughout the campaign and beyond. It's going to get finished and printed by May. And if, heaven forbid, something life-altering should happen that totally derails the project-- I'm still going to complete it!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
