My name is Tereso Cobián, and I have been making comics since july 2013. It all started with one drawing of a chimp. That chimpanzee was then given a name, and a few homies! After that it was hard to keep their stories bottled up in my head. Thats's when I decided to make Private Posse, the most RUTHLESS comic book in the whole world!!
I created Cal Young Comics as a production company to launch Private Posse! Cal Young is the local skatepark that I grew up skating at with all of the other Cal Young homies. Cal Young Crew (aka CYC) is what that skatepark created, and it has always been an important part of my childhood. Cal Young Comics is my way of showing how much Cal Young Skatepark and the Crew have inspired me and my imagination.
Now it's 2017, and I have just completed the SECOND issue of the comic book called PRIVATE POSSE!
Private Posse is made of four ruthless characters:
The story is about Oliver Shoback, a young humanzee (chimp-human hybrid) from Mars, who finds himself in an unexpected scenario when he crash lands his ship in Salem, New York. The people he meets, and the events that occur will change his life forever.
The comic will be printed on 70 lb paper with gloss finish, and a 85 lb cover with gloss finish. It is a 32 page comic book (front and back, not including cover/back cover). It will be sized at the standard comic book size of 6.625 inches X 10.25 inches.

Unfortunately, I can't show too many actual finished pages of the comic book. Gotta keep it exclusive. However, here are some photos to give you an idea of what I've created.

Risks and challenges
The one and only risk I foresee is having so many rewards to produce that I fall behind on sending them out to donors. That's an issue that came up in my first Kickstarter.
This time however, I already have 95% of the rewards made and ready. Since Issue #2 is already complete as well, sending out the rewards can happen as soon as they're off the printers!
I am very excited about this project and future projects to come.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
