About this project

I am raising funds to publish issue 2 of ODM.  I have paid out of pocket thus far for publishing 200 copies of issue 1 and business cards and prints as well as copyrighting the title.  I (Marshall Loveless) have registered a business name for 3 AM Comics LLC using my own money as well with the intent on getting a business line of credit or loan to publish the second issue under.  Well that didn't work, so now I am turning to kickstarter to fund the second issue.

Funds will go towards publishing the comic through Ka-Blam digital print-on-demand service.  Ka-Blam did a great job with the first issue and they have a partner-site with Indyplanet.com so when I publish the issue can be purchased in the future as digital or print-on-demand copies.

T-shirts have been made using Reinforcements Designs based in Rensselaer, Indiana.  The few I have made so far look awesome!  So I will be looking forward to getting more made in the future.

Also, I plan to create a website for ODM that the great team at Maximumedia Design have agreed to help me put together.  So any profit will go towards that end as well AFTER I pay my dues to the writer and letterer.

Risks and challenges

My biggest challenge is that I am limited by my mobility. Meaning I do not drive because of my disability. So I am constantly forced to make arrangements to go anywhere or do anything. The writer for ODM is a close and personal friend of mine so a lot of times we will do events together and then there is my wife who helps run me around as well. However, in this case, a lot of this can be simply mailed via postal carrier or in the way of the PDF files, via internet.

FAQ

  • ODM is about a guy who wakes up in a body bag and can't remember who he is or how he got there. So he goes about his day and finds out he's already dead but rather something else as well. So we follow him as he tries to figure out who he is, how he got this way or who MADE him this way... all the while on the run from people who are either trying to kill him or hunt him down and bring him in because he is who he is.
