Risks and challenges

While this is our second official Kickstarter campaign (it's our artist's third), we have experience funding and producing two film projects. The main challenge that we'll face post-funding will be ensuring that we have a high-quality printing of the book and that it's delivered on time. As such, we've selected one of the best vendors available in Print Ninja (www.printninja.com). Their customer service is the best in class and they've received rave reviews from other Kickstarters. As part of the process, we'll receive both a digital and physical proof of the book prior to printing. This will allow us to identify any issues before we go to press. We're really excited to partner with them and bring you an amazing-looking comic!
