Hey guys, firstly, thank you for taking the time to stop and read this. I know there are a ton of great Kickstarter projects out there that even I myself have been eager to help but, you can't help them all so if you pick us, thank you!

Anyway, back to our project. It is called Haeman: Takin' the Reigns. (for all the smart folks out there, can you catch the intended word play?) Set against the back drop of the old west, our main character Fields decides to stand up against a money grabbin' railroad tycoon called Lincoln, who has been playing the role of Pinedale's self proclaimed kingpin. This doesn't end too well for Fields, who is dumped in the barren wilds and left for dead in the desert. He is retrieved by a group of Indians but this sanctuary is short lived and a fate more cruel than the solitude of the western sands could ever conjure forth.

That's a very brief synopsis of our 100 page story. If you want to find out more, give us a pledge and get your hands on it first.

The money that we receive will go towards the general expenses of getting the graphic novel produced and printed. We're very close to the end in terms of artwork. This Kickstarter will help us fund the final part of the project, enabling us to print it and of course, hopefully gain us some new fans for our other titles under the Back Pocket Comics banner.

Thanks for reading!

Richard and Steven.

Risks and challenges

Finance is the biggest hurdle that we face while creating and producing a comic.

So far, with previous titles we've funded them ourselves to great strain. The Kickstarter for this project will help pay the artist, help push our book to new audiences and will be able to give us confidence going into our next batch of comic cons and with future projects.

If successful in this kick-starter project, we will aim to meet the postage deadlines and make sure we keep all of our pledgers happy!
