JUST ADDED STRETCH GOALS!
If we hit $30 grand...every backer at the $25.00 level and up will get an exclusive signed limited edition color print by me [ JIMMY PALMIOTTI ] added to their pledge. It will be different than the one offered in the original pledges.
If we hit $32 grand we will be adding an extra digital book of our choice to the digital copy of SEX AND VIOLENCE to everyones order.
If we hit $35 grand everyone at the $25 level and up will get a signed full color limited edition print by AMANDA CONNER that is different than the one being offered and made exclusivly for this level.
Now back to what the book is about. lol....
SEX AND VIOLENCE volume 1 is a 64 page graphic novel about crime, lust and redemption split into two distinctively different stories sharing similar themes written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray and drawn by Jimmy Broxton and Juan SantaCruz. Excessive nudity and violence makes this an adults only title.
ADDED: 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. You will not be able to buy this book in this format anywhere but here.
This Kickstarter is here to 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 , signed and number edition of the book based on the amount of orders we recieve. This will be the only place to get the Amanda Conner cover edition and the book itself will have a spot on the cover where it is to be numbered, limited to the order number and not for sale in public. Eventually we plan to publish the book elsewhere, but it will only be available here and with the exclusive cover and numbering. As you can see with the pledge list there are some choces how you can get the book and as well sets of prints and other goodies.
The book itself is split into two stories.
The first story, PORNLAND, OREGON, is written by Justin Gray [ All-Star Western, Retrovirus, Creator-Owned heroes] and drawn by Jimmy Broxton [The Unwritten, The Engine] . When his runaway granddaughter is murdered, Rick embarks on a bloody trail of revenge through Portland's internet porn community only to discover he may have inadvertently had a role in her death.
The other story, GIRL IN A STORM, is written by Jimy Palmiotti [ Painkiller Jane, Queen Crab, Jonah Hex] and illustrated by Juan SantaCruz [ The Resistance, Fantastic Four, The Hulk] and is a story about a NYC female police officer that becomes facinated with a lesbian couple that has moved across the courtyard from her apartment. What started out as a curiousity out of boredom has become a full fledged obsession that starts her questioning her own life.

Risks and challenges
Working on a project like this and our two past Kickstarter projects, QUEEN CRAB and RETROVIRUS 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 SEX AND VIOLENCE we are going for an audience that is more mature and understands how gritty and real life can be, and throwing some cool set ups and ideas into the mix that we think you will be able to read 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 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 cnnot thank you enough in advance and please help us along with this campaign by posting, tweeting and spreading the word about this project.
And remember, this is for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
