Meet Joseph Kirsch
Joseph Kirsch has been studying the world since that fateful day in the Beth El Hospital maternity ward. A teacher for over 30 years, Kirsch has had ample time to pass on his observations to generations.
As a fan of sequential art classics, such as Tintin, Joseph realized that graphic novels were the perfect medium to tell meaningful stories. In 2003, Kirsch began Ethics Comics LLC - a small publishing company based in Ohio - with a vision of publishing graphic novels that are engaging, rich in community values, and social responsibility.
Over a decade later, Joseph is fulfilling his dream by offering Ethic Comics' first graphic novel, Diamond Island, to communities around the globe.
With your support, that dream is sure to become a reality.

Diamond Island: An Introduction
Richie Rockstein has been struggling. He's bounced from one department to the next at his Dad's big company, but can't seem to fit in. Richie's latest mishap involved his tie getting caught in his shredding machine, and some ridiculously bad press.
After the fiasco, Richie's father has no choice but to let him go...
A short while later, the bills start to pile up. Richie decides to sell some of his belongings for cash, and stumbles upon an ancient journal in the process...
The journal tells a tale of a legendary island covered in precious gems.
With dreams of making it big and proving himself to family and friends, Richie buys the journal...
The adventure is just beginning!

Risks and challenges
There are no risks associated with the completion of the graphic novel.
We have also reduced the risks associated with printing and shipping by teaming up with professional printing and fulfillment services. We will keep backers up-to-date as we progress through each stage.
After a successful campaign, we'll need to add the names of eligible backers to the proper sections on the thank you page(s). This process may take a short period of time (3-6 days).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
