THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO HELPED TO GET THIS TO HAPPEN! I'm so grateful for everyone and their support!
-With much love,
This is for the print edition of Halfsoul, a webcomic that has been updating for the last year and half. This will be part 1 out of 4!
Set in a world where it's possible to trade half of your soul for the power to grant your wish, those who do, Halfsouls are seen as scums for elimination. Following the journey of four halfsoul hunters, with their own personal and questionable histories with Halfsoul, what appears to be black and white becomes a story of vulnerability, mental illness and recovery.
You can check out the web-comic here: tapas.io/series/Half-Soul
For this print run, it will 500 copies of around 200 pages in black and white, with foil stamped color cover. In addition, a kickstarter exclusive bonus story will also be printed about the origin story of one of characters, J'ias. This bonus story will be 24 pages, black and white done with brush work.
In addition the following will also be made available:
If you chose this reward, a survey will be sent at the end with all the possible choices to chose from. All mini prints are 4" by 6".
Here are the choices:
Original sketches will be 5.5 by 7, done in ink brush with possible spot color.
Here is an example of what to expect:
Limited edition etchings:
The limited edition etchings have already been made. There are 6 different images and there is an edition of ten for each.
These are printed on arches printmaking paper with archival ink.
Add ons are only available for the mini prints and the bonus story. To order an add on, add the additional amount to your pledge and I'll send you a survey later for you to fill in.
Ji'as bonus story: add 12
Mini prints: add 1.50 for each
Another (max 6) copy of Halfsoul: $20 each and add another $5(US) or $8(CAD) for shipping. This is not possible for international shipping, sorry.
Note for the early bird special:
I'm unable to directly change it on the reward descriptions, but if you select the early bird special, you will have the option of picking between the mini-prints or a pdf of the bonus story.
Accountability is important. Here is what the 7000$ will be used for
If this kickstarter is funded: 2-3 months finishing comic and bonus chapter pdf rewards will be send soon after. The rest of the rewards will be sent once I have received the books off the press. I'm not entirely sure when I will receive the books and be able to send them off, but it should not be after the end of this year. That being said, if there are unexpected surprises, hopefully, it will not be soon after that.
Risks and challenges
This is my first kickstarter, and while this is a huge project to undertake for the first time, I'm going to give it my all. Risks and challenges include:
Shipping: I do not have much experience shipping but I will ensure that I do the proper research and make sure everything will be properly packed.
Completion: I am confident in my ability to complete the work but it is understandable that those who don't know me could be unsure.
Currently I have finished 2/3 chapters, and having just graduated I will be able devote my time fully on finishing the last chapter as well as the bonus story. My estimation is that it will take from 2 to 3 months for completion. I will update everyone with the progress as I go. I also update on Tapas every week (note: Tapas will update slower than my work pace)
Printing: I have printed books on my own before, so I am familiar with the process. In addition, I am ordering a proof before I print the run to ensure quality.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
