About

WELCOME TO THE BOOK 4 KICKSTARTER!

My name is Paul Roman Martinez, and I am the creator of The Adventures of the 19XX. In this case, that means I am the writer, artist, designer, and everything else! Some of you may know me well and have been waiting patiently for this book. Thank you for your kind words and your encouragement over the last few months! I couldn't have finished it without you. For those of you who are new to the series, hopefully I've provided all the information you need to get caught up. Kickstarter is an all or nothing funding platform to help creative projects get made. My goal is for the printing costs of the graphic novel. Any extra funds will go toward producing the other items on this page and producing a print edition of the companion book.

ABOUT THE SERIES The Adventures of the 19XX series takes place in the 1930s and is about a group trying to prevent World War II. After seeing terrible glimpses of the future, they know the war is coming. Along the way, they gather machines, magical ancient relics, and powerful people to help them in their cause. Another group, the Order of the Black Faun, battles the 19XX at every turn to further their own goal of ushering in a dark new world order with the beginning of a second Great War. The series begins with a young boy, known only as the Kid, being taken in by the Captain of the 19XX. Along the way, the Kid learns more and more about his father, who was once a member of the organization. The agents of the 19XX each take part in training and teaching him the ways of the group so that one day he can become the kind of hero his father was. Each book in the series takes place in a different year, and we get to explore the effect this unique family has on the Kid. Join us here for the latest book in the 19XX series, 1933-1937. With your help, we can get the latest book in print! Each book is a completely self-contained adventure, but they all build toward an epic conclusion that will leave an indelible mark on self-publishing. You can start with the Fourth book and experience a great 19XX story, or pick up the whole series and see what it's all about! Click here to get a look at some of the characters from the series!

ABOUT THE BOOK FAMINE: 1937

The 19XX series has been available as a webcomic since 2009. As I finish each storyline, I get feedback from readers and use that information to finalize each book. Book Four is now complete except for the color on a handful of pages. I will be spending the next month on colors then sending the files to the factory for a delivery date of around March. This is your chance to help it get made!

 

 

SECRET FILES
Each book in the 19XX series also has a companion book called, The Secret Files. Book Four will have the Secret Files as a .PDF unless we can meet the first stretch goal. Then anyone who is getting a printed Book Four will also automatically be upgraded to a printed Secret Files Four.

Risks and challenges

This is the fourth book in the series I've produced so I'm very familiar with all the wrinkles that comes along with that. The trick this time is just seeing if I can get it back in hand before convention season starts!
