The Comic - completely finished and ready to print.
Death Sentence Liberty is the latest in a critically acclaimed series by Monty Nero (Marvel, Titan, Delcourt) and Martin Simmonds (Marvel, Titan, Black Crown, Vault Comics) - the first of an explosive six-issue arc pushing superpowered comics in a thrilling new direction. It's an irreverent adults-only comic with mature themes, regularly praised for its dynamic plotting, scintillating dialogue, and emotional depth.

Death Sentence was called "The Best British Comic in Years" by Buzzfeed, "a masterwork...like only the best bits of Watchmen" by Popmatters, "Brilliant. Genuinely original" by Mark Millar and "sexy, funny, dark and mature...a striking new voice in the superhero genre" by Comic Book Resources. Death Sentence Liberty continues to break new ground with a stirring tale of individual liberty in the face of state oppression articulated via the finest action and dialogue you'll read this year. If you're tired of reading the same-old-same-old from big companies, this is the comic for you.
Verity the beating heart of the story. Frustrated and unfulfilled she longs for something more than cheap thrills and empty sex – to be a great artist and achieve something timeless. She's a dangerous maverick leading the battle against malevolent government forces.
Roots is half-woman, half-plant, and 100% badass - an ex drug dealer using her burgeoning G-plus powers to protect her hood from police and gang violence.
Jeb is an FBI agent infiltrating the UK's top-secret G-plus research facility to steal their secrets - a family man in far worse trouble than he realises.
Weasel is a rockstar drug-addict desperate to reconcile with his family and record a legendary album before he dies. His G-plus powers are as unreliable as he is, spreading chaos or comedy - which is why Verity dumped him.
Each character's destiny is entwined by the mystery of the G-plus and the sinister fate linking them all.
Death Sentence is for open-minded adults only - featuring sex, drugs, rock n roll, humour, violence, monsters (human and otherwise). vodka, biting satire and other fun stuff like that.

Risks and challenges
The comic is completely finished and I've already printed a few test copies - the full print run will commence as soon as the Kickstarter closes and funds clear.
I learnt loads doing previous Kickstarters which means the rewards are all simple to create and things I've made before. The printer is very experienced and regularly prints all my other comics and art prints, which has always gone very smoothly. People often comment on the high quality of their work.
I've interviewed lots of creators who have run successful Kickstarter campaigns to discover all the potential problems and factored those into my plans. I've also spoken to the Post Office, and had them weigh each different type of reward with the relevant packaging. I'm as well prepared as I can be, and will be taking time off work to make sure everything ships on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
