The Stretch Goals So Far:
$200 - Our original goal - Funded! The print run for issue 2 is now paid for, and all rewards will be filled!
$250 - Postcards - Funded! Everyone pledging over $5 gets a Battle of the Blood Moon postcard with their rewards!
$300 - Bookmarks - Funded! Everyone pledging over $5 will receive a Battle of the Blood Moon bookmark, as well as all previous stretch goals.
$400 - Sneak peeks - Funded! Everyone who pledges anything gets a sneak peek at some of the script for the issue 3.
At this point, we can also afford to get issue 3 printed, opening up more reward tiers to include the new issue.
Reward has been opened to all backers in an update on 30/5.
$500 - A little happy dance - Funded! Holly will post a thank you video to the page (She hates cameras, so she's hoping like crazy we won't get there) to honour all the brave donors to the anti-wolf war effort.
Video will be posted when I have my voice back!
$1,000 - Little ray of Sunshine - For the marvelous backers that help us get here, you will receive a simple but helpful addition to their comics - they will all arrive bagged and boarded, protected and safe from the get-go! Every comic will be individually packed, keeping your reward safe forever - or until you want to read it.
$2,000 - Faint of Heart - Aside from the satisfaction of giving us all heart attacks with your generosity, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that all issues of The Battle of the Blood Moon are funded for printing - and that !you made it happen! To celebrate reaching $1,000, we are offering every backer who helps us reach this point, a single, exclusive reward you will find nowhere else: Contributing to the Graphic Novel! That's right, everyone who pledges gets a chance to submit a piece based on the world of the comic - be it email, handwritten, drawing, poem, whatever - into the Graphic Novel.
More goals will come as we get closer to the $2,000 goal... What will it be? We'll have to raise the money before you can find out!
The Battle of the Blood Moon is an apocalyptic-paranormal comic with an edge. The humans discover the existence of werewolves as Alitaca, the mindless werewolf from all the movies you've seen, begins to harvest the human race for her children.
But humanity has never reacted well to global threats. That's why it's come down to a young werewolf, Olivia, her half-brother Charlie and her step-mother Angela to fight Alitaca on behalf of the humans.
Who will win?
Why Should I Support You?
We are a small-time comic team working on adapting one of my novels into a comic. I read a lot of comics, and thought that this story would actually do well in a comic format.
Issues 2 and 3 are ready for printing and distribution. Anything over $400 will go into the art for issue 4.
All this Kickstarter is paying for is printing and shipping of around 100 copies of the comic, as well as any backer rewards that need to be sent out. If we reach over the initial amount, that money will first go into creating Issue 3, then, funds pending, will begin to get Issue 3 printed and shipped.
Want to assist in getting the comic drawn? Visit us at Patreon, and pledge there. We're posting the occasional page there as they're completed, just to keep you informed on the lovely artwork!
