Hey, everybody!

This is Will Boyer, the cartoonist that does SuperMilo at MiloComics.com! I've been employed by the Charlton Neo publishing company to pencil their webcomic series, "Hip Hop," and have been invited by the company to sit at their table June 19th-21st at Heroes Convention down in Charlotte this year! Problem is, I have no content to display because my comic with them is a non-print webcomic. I have however been encouraged to bring my own printed comics, the SuperMilo series, to sell at the con, but another problem - I can't afford to print such a huge quantity of books!

I'm hoping to raise money by about May 27th in order to print the books. My original goal was 100 of the black and white books and 75 colored, making my goal about $546, but I've decided to lower my goal to a more reasonable $355.64 - 25 of each book. I'll print what I can on that and, if by some miracle, we can raise more than $300, then I will use every bit of it for book printing!

To read my comic before donating, please go to www.MiloComics.com. Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

Everything is ready. All I need to do is print the books. However Ka-Blam, the printing company, will need 2 weeks to print and deliver the books. I plan on giving them 3 weeks just in case. I need to print the books the exact day that the project ends - if it is successfully funded, that is. And since it takes 2 weeks for Kickstarter to complete and finish everything up (I had no idea until after this thing launched live), I may go ahead and print the books then be re-imbursed once that happens. Because my wife and I live paycheck to paycheck, this may be difficult, but I'll find a way. Probably ask for a loan and pay it back.

Otherwise there should be no difficulties. I plan on being at Heroes Con for all 3 days, as long as my other employer allows me that Friday off. Otherwise, expect me to be there the 20th and 21st.

If I have left over books, they will be sent to those who have them coming as rewards. If they all sell, the profit will fund the purchase and delivery of the new books. I have plenty of time for sketches, but the commission pieces will take a bit to do them all (if I get all 10) so I've given myself time to work on them. You should expect me to take no where near that allotted time to complete the commissions, however, unless work picks up at the publishing company or something unexpected occurs. I've never done anything like this before (the art I have, just not mailing them out; my commissions and book sales are primarily digital or in person), but I don't anticipate much problem.

    Will Boyer will do a custom polished color commission for you! Multiple characters! Backgrounds! Just a large drawing, no comics please. This is the usual price for a commission of this kind. Commissions usually take a week to do, working here and there. You may receive your commission much sooner than expected. Please provide an e-mail or Facebook name in which it can be sent. If you don't, we will upload it to our website for your private download. Please be aware that Will Boyer only draws appropriate content. If you aren't sure about your commission, please ask. Every commission comes with the original hand drawn artwork along with your digital copy.
