Welcome back to the PaperFilms 5th kickstarter project: FORAGER
FORAGER is a 60 page ALL AGES graphic novel written by Justin Gray & Jimmy Palmiotti featuring the art of Steven Cummings , color by Challenging studios and lettering and design by Bill Tortolini.
The Kickstarter for FORAGER exists not only to raise funds to put together the book, but to create an EXCLUSIVE Kickstarter project that is unique in a few ways. We will be using Print-On-Demand structure to create an exclusive limited and signed edition of the book based solely on the amount of orders we receive which will be printed in the U.S.A.. This Kickstarter project will be the only place to get the Amanda Conner cover edition.
Eventually we plan to publish the book elsewhere for retailers with a different cover, but till that time in the future, it will only be available here for our Kickstarter supporters! As you can see with the pledge list there are several choices on how you can get the book.
We will be adding more tier rewards as the pledge drive goes along, as well as stretch goals once the original goal has been funded.
Many of you are returning customers who have supported us in the past and have received your Kickstarter pledges ON TIME and hopefully have appreciated our communication throughout the project. For those who are returning for another adventure, we thank you.
For those new to this project and our books, we want to say we treat each and every person like a close friend, reply to your messages and do our best to ensure you get each penny’s worth of pledge amount for not just this project, but all our projects. We are proud of our work and even more proud of the fine people that support us on our adventures. Because of that, we offer a big THANK YOU to everyone out there from all of us at PaperFilms….all 6 of us!

NEW PAGES OF ART:
THE BASIC STORY:
In an attempt to save their crumbling marriage, Glenn and Joan Travers take their six-year-old daughter Ellie, on a week’s vacation aboard a luxury Star Liner orbiting the Earth and Mars.
Soon after reaching orbit, Ellie begins hearing voices from what she calls angels, claiming they are, “coming for our world”. As the days pass, Ellie alarmingly slips in and out of a catatonic state for short periods of time, each time explaining that the angels are getting closer. Are the angels real? Is Ellie suffering a mental breakdown or are we about to make first contact with an alien intelligence?
The inspiration for FORAGER was born out of frustration with mainstream science fiction movies where nearly all alien life in the universe wants to conquer or eat us. There is very little optimism, hope or joy. So FORAGER draws its inspiration films like Close Encounters of the Third Kind, ET and Starman.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Working on a project like this and our FOUR past Kickstarter projects, QUEEN CRAB, RETROVIRUS , SEX &VIOLENCE: VOL. 1 and WEAPON OF GOD has been super rewarding for many reasons. We are getting to push the envelope with the kind of stories we would like to tell and at the same time finding out what you, our audience, is interested in. With FORAGER we are going for an all ages audience that is interested in quality adventure and science fiction on an emotional level. By throwing some cool set ups and ideas into the mix, we think you will be able to read FORAGER over and over again and keep as part of your permanent collection.
Knowing that our audience supports our insanity really gives us a ton of freedom to let loose on projects like this. Our goal is to make them even more special by offering exclusive art, prints, and downloads we know our fans love!
The amount needed is to cover the art, coloring, lettering, design, book printing, shipping, and special printing needs for the exclusive prints. Justin and Jimmy are not taking any money for the project in order to keep the goal a reasonable target.
Finally, any additional help you can support us with this campaign by posting, tweeting and spreading the word about this project, the entire FORAGER team appreciates.
NOTE:Due to the increased cost for international shipping, we are offering the option to ship overseas, however, the shipping cost will be higher than our previous campaigns. We certainly love and appreciate our overseas fans, however, we have to account for the extreme handling structures and the current postal increases.
