THANK YOU, MY PEOPLE, WE ARE FUNDED!  STRETCH GOALS: MO' MONEY, MO' COMICS!

$14,000 Stretch Goal:

At 14k, we include a whole separate comic!  You get an EXCLUSIVE original 12 page story, PUNCH TOMORROW! by Michael McDermott, Jonathan Brandon Sawyer and K Michael Russell PLUS a select handful of ID all ages appropriate material in a Guerrilla FCBD form.  Onward and upwards, True Believers.

$10,000 Stretch Goal:

At $10k we unleash the above teased 8 pager from Nic Shaw and Jonathan Brandon Sawyer.

Another short story by Jeff McClelland.

And Dr. Fukushuu, an 8 page filthy future toxic street crime tale from Michael McDermott and Aluisio Santos continuing off the story in our first collaboration in FUBAR: Empire of the Rising Dead.

If we hit this goal... shit.  Mini comics?

$8,000 Stretch Goal:

As announced in our updates, we're adding more comics to ID the more money we raise.  We have about 30 pages worth of potential comics coming up for grabs from our current creators Jeff McClelland, Christine Larsen, Jonathan Brandon Sawyer and new ones including Benjamin Truman, Shawn Aldridge, Christopher Peterson, Dominic Vivona, Nic Shaw.  Basically, we're just looking to kick THE most fucking comic ass imaginable with this volume and have reached out to even more top notch creators in our little "we do this for a living... really," community to help us get there. 

Right now, $8,000 will get us an additional four page comic by Christine Larsen, a print exclusive Go Getters short by Shawn Aldridge and Christopher Peterson, and G.U.N.T. (Genetically Unstable Nanotech Terrorist) by Benjamin Truman and Dominic Vivona!

Original Campaign: IMAGINARY DRUGS is a 58-page comic anthology featuring 9 different stand-alone stories from some of the hungriest talent working in indie comics today. Here's a glimpse of both our teams and content:

"Saint In The City" and "Murder Culture" by Michael McDermott, Jonathan Brandon Sawyer, and K. Michael Russell.

"Hunter" and "Sacrifice" by Christine Larsen.

"Eternal Flame" by Jeff McClelland and Paul Tucker, and "Teddy and The Yeti: Incoming!" by Jeff McClelland and Pietro.

We are seeking to raise $5,000 for the cost of printing 1000 copies of Imaginary Drugs and fulfilling rewards for you gals and guys, our backers. Additional money raised will go towards expanding ID with a pinup gallery featuring art by Jason Copland, Steve Becker, Jeff McComsey, Aluisio Santos, and more.  Nearly 3/4's of the material for this volume is already finished and we expect to have the entire book completed shortly after the end of the campaign (specifically for reasons related to the Murder Culture cameo Reward).

"Murder Culture" pin-up by Jason Copland (Daredevil, Robocop: To Live and Die in Detroit, Kill All Monsters), "HYPER" page by Kevin Enhart.

We have quite a few awesome reward bundles available. In addition to digital and physical copies of the book itself, we have:

11x17 prints of the Imaginary Drugs cover, Teddy and the Yeti, The Song, and Saint in the City.

 Some of our creators are also offering their services as rewards!  Need a script or a polish on one you have?  Michael McDermott is offering 5 different 8 page stories based on your original characters.  Do you already have a script penciled and inked but need that extra kick to bring it to life? K. Michael Russell is also offering his coloring services separately! Now, all you'll need is... a letterer!  Fortunately, Jeff McClelland has you covered on that one as well.  And if you've ever wanted to see yourself immortalized in the pages of a comic book, check out the Murder Culture cameo reward, where Jonathan is offering to draw your likeness within the pages of Murder Culture!

Risks and challenges

The only obstacles we anticipate are those most commonly associated with any printed project. The lion's share of material for the comic is already finished.
