STRETCH GOAL #3: $30,000 (UNLOCKED!) - everyone at the $25 level and higher will get an additional art print by AMANDA CONNER, which will be a totally new image and this will be signed as well. For our digital friends, this will be included in the pdf.
Welcome back to the PaperFilms 4th kickstarter project: WEAPON OF GOD. This book is a 60 page original Adults Only graphic novel written by Justin Gray & Jimmy Palmiotti featuring the art of Giancarlo Caracuzzo , color by Challenging studios and lettering and design by Bill Tortolini.
The Kickstarter for WEAPON OF GOD 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. 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. Additional higher tiers will offer digital downloads, a variety of signed prints (Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti and the one and only Darwyn Cooke!)...as well other goodies. We will be adding more tier rewards as the pledge drive goes along.
Risks and challenges
Working on a project like this and our three past Kickstarter projects, QUEEN CRAB, RETROVIRUS and SEX &VIOLENCE: VOL. 1 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 and now WEAPON OF GOD, we are going for an audience that is more mature and understands how gritty real life can be. By throwing some cool set ups and ideas into the mix, we think you will be able to read WEAPON OF GOD 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! Additionally, going right to a POD (Print-On-Demand) format allows us to take extra care of the people that pledge and support us here at Kickstarter. We cannot thank you enough in advance for not only supporting this project, but our past projects as well. Finally, any additional help you can support us with this campaign by posting, tweeting and spreading the word about this project, the entire WEAPON OF GOD team appreciates.
And remember, this is for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY.
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.
SPECIAL NOTE: Because Canadian orders are slightly cheaper, we will be adding a mystery signed book with each order to make up the balance. Hope that helps.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
