UPDATE!  The book is funded!  PLOX Volume 1 will be a reality, so pre-order your copy and get your Kickstarter swag while you can!  Just 3 days left!

Every extra penny that we make will go directly into the production of the book and the rewards.  I want to make this the best possible book for everyone that has supported me in making PLOX!

Thank you all!  Let's start unlocking achievements!

Let me tell you what PLOX is all about.

i.e. Plox - Further misspelling of 'please'.  Originated from the combination of the shortened 'plz' and thx' often used by veteran gamers to ask for something in a polite way.

PLOX is an online graphic novel that I have been creating and publishing since July 2013.  The comic is free-to-read online and is updated on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  This Kickstarter will make it possible to produce the first volume in printed graphic novel form.

The story is set in my city of residence, Columbus, Ohio.  The three main characters love gaming and until recent events, played many games as a group.

Kim; the guild leader at the end of her rope, Chad; the obsessed gamer trying to get revenge for being kicked out of his guild, and Roy; the relatively stable one that's more interested in games with dice & paper.

Online gaming is a theme and a device that connects each of the characters, but at its heart, PLOX is about friendship. The comic is based on my own life and experiences, and inspired by my friends and family. I've had a great time creating this story, and I look forward to sharing the book with all of you.

Want to know more?

The book itself will be approximately 200 pages long, and in full color!  I realize that many backers just want the book, but I have created a few special items that will hopefully make the higher donation levels enticing to you.  Check out the cool rewards below!

Risks and challenges

Full color graphic novels can be challenging to produce, but I have been working in comics publishing for over 14 years, so I have the experience, patience, and attention to detail that will result in a quality book for you, the reader.

I have a printer standing by that has produced comics with me in the past, and the rewards are already designed and awaiting the production green light. The only thing left is your help!

I am excited to make this book with you, so thank you in advance. :)
