Right from the beginning, we knew there were more stories to tell about Kitty and her comic book world. After the phenomenal response to our first incredible Kickstarter and the very passionate support we received from our very kind fans, we're back to put together a project that is not only as good as and worthy of our first book but that surpasses it with more action, more adventure, more humor, and more surprises. In the first book, Kitty took on the comic book world and she's not done with them yet. Plus now she's also leaving her mark on Hollywood and the entertainment industry. You know there will be lots of fun and satire along the way! We always have a lot of fun working on Kitty's stories. We hope we can count on our very loyal and generous fans to make this the best ride yet!
We hope to follow the basic model of our first book with a four issue storyline that we will initially release as individual PDF issues. As before, each individual issue will feature twenty pages of original story and art plus fashion pages, funny ad pages, pin-ups, variant covers and other added material. We will be handling the bulk of the writing and drawing ourselves but much of this additional material may be completed by some of our talented friends and colleagues in the comic industry. Later, these issues will be collected into one softcover trade paperback and as per our last campaign, our goal is to collect enough funding to be able to make the softcover trade into a hardcover with a dust jacket.
Once again, we are planning on a number of stretch goals to make this project better and better. We are hoping to add bonus material such as an additional exclusive story by the popular, talented Gisele Lagace and fashion pages by the awesome J Bone. In addition to these fun objectives, we've gotten really ambitious this time! If other goals are met, we hope to do two additional Kitty special issues such as a Kitty Summer Special and a Kitty Holiday Special. These would be really great additions to this round of Kitty Kickstartering but we can only get there with everyone's help!

Risks and challenges
Since our incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign last year, Die Kitty Die has enjoyed a lot of good luck. The reception to our first Die Kitty Die book has been almost universally positive and Kitty has been picked up by Chapterhouse Comics to be published in single issues and distributed to retailers world wide!
We'd like to point out to everyone that despite this great good fortune, producing Kitty still falls to us. This is what brings us to Kickstarter. We can't do it alone. As you might imagine producing four complete issues of original story and art takes a lot of manpower and resources. We have our impressively talented team of inkers, letterers, colorists and others that we must hire and pay. We also have other costs such as printing, shipping and many other miscellaneous expenses that we need to cover ourselves. We can't do this without the very generous help of our very kind and loyal fans and supporters. We were deeply appreciative and touched by the phenomenal amount of support we were shown throughout our first campaign and even afterwards. Making an independent creator-owned and driven project like Die Kitty Die has been our dream since long before either of us ever got into this business. We couldn't make that dream happen without your help.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
