About

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 & Thursdays at plox-comic.com. This Kickstarter will make it possible to produce the second volume in printed graphic novel form.

Who am I? I have been working in comics as a professional colorist for over 17 years. A few of the projects I've been lucky enough to work on include coloring the epic graphic novel series BONE, by Jeff Smith, three volumes of Table Titans, by Scott Kurtz and Brian Hurtt, and two volumes of Hilo, by Judd Winick. I have also worked closely with Terry Moore (Strangers in Paradise & Motor Girl), and Mark Osborne on the comic series, Mylo Xyloto with the band Coldplay. I've also successfully self-published a graphic novel called Fish N Chips. I have contributed several short stories for the Flight Anthology series edited by Kazu Kibuishi (Amulet).

At its core PLOX is about friendship. In the first volume of the story, Chad, Kim and Roy struggle to remain friends while they each make strides forward (or backward) in their own lives.

 

PLOX Volume 2 continues to follow the lives of Chad, Kim and Roy as they look ahead to what the future might hold.

Vague, right? I don't want to give too much away! Let's make this book so we can find out what happens!

I would rate the story appropriate for 13 years and up due to a few moments of mild language. No nudity or violence. :)

Here are some panels from PLOX Volume 2 "Don't Play Games".

Risks and challenges

I successfully funded PLOX Volume 1 "Hell Is Other Players" in 2015 and delivered the finished product by March of 2016.

This time around the cost is slightly lower because I am keeping the rewards limited to original art, cameos in the comic, and collectible pins through stretch goals.
