About this project
NEW STRETCH GOALS ADDED!!
SEX AND VIOLENCE volume 2 is a full color, soft cover 64 page graphic novel about crime, lust, and redemption split into three distinctively different stories sharing similar themes written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray and drawn by Romina Moranelli, Rafa Garres , Vanesa R. Del Rey and Paul Mounts. Excessive nudity and violence makes this an ADULTS ONLY title.
JUST ADDED: With us getting close to the goal, we decided to add a stretch goal or two that are pure digital so everyone can get it.
NAILED! If we hit $32 grand we will be adding the digital download pdf of PAINKILLER JANE /22 BRIDES #1 to every single person that backed the project.
KNOCKED OUT! $35 THOUSAND STRETCH GOAL: Everyone will receive the digital scripts for Sex & Violence 2 by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti. For the people at the script tier of the Kickstarter, we will be adding something special for you…a MYSTERY digital book. Hey, we want to keep this fun.
$40 THOUSAND STRETCH GOAL: If we hit 40 grand, and we still have 19 days to do it, we figured we would make this interesting and add content for everyone to enjoy. This stretch goal will be an interactive one. We will be taking submissions of illustrations and photos that stick with the theme of the book. We are talking both Sex and Violence on the Illustration side, and on the Photography side we are looking at a sexy theme, no nudity, but total tease and stylized themes.
To be clear, we aren’t looking for slasher porn, gore or just violence to be violence, really be creative but keep in mind how we try to approach our stories, clever and titillating (total pun intended). What we will be doing is posting every single entry on the Paperfilms site every few days as they come in and then we will pick 5 winners in each category (5 in the Illustration category and 5 in the Photography category), announce them and they will be featured in the print book and the digital version of Sex & Violence: Vol. 2. For the 5 winners in each category, we will credit each artist, photographer and model and give them three (3) copies of the book as well, autographed by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti (in addition to their regular pledge!).
We will only be taking submissions from the people that have backed this Kickstarter. In the end, we get other peoples work out there, have some fun and add some content to the book. Note there will be a deadline associated with this so we have time to post, review and get the final images included for the print copy. No use of copyrighted characters is permitted. Further details will be communicated once we achieve the stretch goal.
$45 THOUSAND GOAL: Every single non-digital pledge will get an exclusive sketch print by Amanda Conner. This will be a piece she does exclusively for the Kickstarter. For the digital pledges, we have something special lined up for you as well. More about that later.
Will be back with more when we get closer to the next level.
ADDED: As you can tell with our first volume, we will not be publishing this book for a while...so it will only be available in the Printed-on-Demand version and available on digital download for those who back this Kickstarter campaign. You will not be able to buy this book in this exact format anywhere but here. This Kickstarter is here to not only raise the funds to put together the book, but to create an EXCLUSIVE Kickstarter book that is unique in a few ways. We will be using Print-on-Demand to create an exclusive, limited edition version of the book based on the amount of orders we receive. This will be the only place to get the Dave Johnson/Amanda Conner cover editions, as well as the prints offered.
Eventually we plan to publish the book elsewhere, but it will only be available here first with the exclusive cover and printing. As you can see with the pledge list there are some choices how you can get the book, the first edition and the prints. Stretch goals will be added eventually if we manage to hit our goal
**NOTE: All censored here for the general public, final book and print will not contain censoring. Again, this is an ADULTS ONLY title.
FORMAT: This is a 64-page, full color graphic novel. We use a high quality paper and printing format. This is soft cover format (please note, NO hardcover) to help everyone enjoy the lower shipping costs. If you've backed our past Kickstarter projects, you'll know, we take absolute pride in our final project, so expect no less.
WHAT IS INSIDE...
THE THREE STORIES:
The first short story is written by Jimmy Palmiotti and illustrated by Romina Moranelli called " DADDY ISSUES" It's about a seductive mother and daughter that have a connection and a goal they share, at any price. Giving any more away will ruin the story for you. Below are a few samples of the stunning art. All censored here for the general public.
The second story is RED DOG ARMY written by Justin Gray and illustrated by Rafa Garres and it is epic. After conquering Poland in only 16 days, Hitler launched a full-scale invasion of Russia called Operation Barabossa. Stalin was desperate to halt the flood of panzer tanks headed toward Moscow. As a result he authorized a special unit to train and use dogs as anti-tank weapons. Red Dog Army is the story of aging dog trainer Yuri Schlonsky who was recruited into the army against his will and sniper Valeriya Petroff as they both try to not only survive the war, but also their deranged commanding officer who is doing everything he can to make certain they fail. Below are a few samples of Rafa's beautiful artwork.
The third story is called FILTER and it is written by Jimmy Palmiotti and illustrated by Vanesa R. Del Rey, and is about a killer named Nico Gallo taking a look back on his life as a young man growing up in the tough streets of Brooklyn , New York, and the violent and murderous choices he made along the way that changed his life forever. Nothing in this story is as it seems. Below are just a few samples of her stunning work. we will posting more as the coloring comes in from Paul Mounts. Yeah, that guy!

Risks and challenges
First off, thanks to everyone that supported SEX AND VIOLENCE VOLUME 1. Without you, this book would not be possible.
Working on a project like this and our past Kickstarter projects such as DENVER, QUEEN CRAB, FORAGER and RETROVIRUS has been super rewarding for so 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 SEX AND VIOLENCE VOLUME 2 we are going for an audience that is more mature and understands how gritty real life can be, while throwing some cool set ups and ideas into the mix. We think you will be able to read these stories over and over again and hopefully keep it at the top of your permanent collection.
Knowing that our audience supports our insanity really gives us a ton of freedom to let loose on projects like these, and to make them even more special by offering exclusive art and prints -going right to a POD format allows us to take extra care of the people that pledge us here, at Kickstarter. We cannot thank you enough in advance and please help us along with this campaign by posting, Tweeting and spreading the word about this project. The whole PAPERFILMS crew thanks you for your support. Visit us for the latest at WWW.PAPERFILMS.COM.
