STRETCH GOAL #1:  $2,500

Every physical and digital copy of DAY 165 will also include the original 12 page webcomic!!  An entire extra story in the DAY 165 universe!

Created by Tony Wright, Martin A. Perez, Joe Haemmerle, and Frank T. Allen, Day 165 is a series that examines the unexplained events that soldiers experience during their 165th day of service.  

Originally conceived as a webcomic, Day 165 has been rebooted and expanded into a full-color, one-shot, war comic in the vein of The Twilight Zone, Fightin' Army, and The 'Nam that will appeal to fans of the supernatural, fantasy, and science fiction.

Pvt. Donnie Smith is a paratrooper in the British Army and has experienced the horrors of war. Donnie has kept his cool and sanity due to his beloved comics, especially Colonel Joe Monroe and His Freedom Brigade. It is a dream of Donnie's to one day be a great soldier like Colonel Joe Monroe. 

Sgt. Freddie Hayes doesn't share Donnie's love of comics and wants Donnie to break free of his childish fantasies and become a true soldier.

 THE PUBLISHER!

When Tony Wright sent me (Travis McIntire, Editor-In-Chief) his pitch for Day 165 and gave me the hook of "something weird happens after 165 days of service" I was immediately intrigued.  Here's something that's both old AND new.  A war comic that reaches back to those beautiful comics from the 1960's while also blending a touch of the occult and some science fiction in?  It was exciting!  And it seemed like it really fit us here at Source Point Press.

We love pulp, we love horror, we love unique stories that only we would do.  Day 165 was hitting all of those notes.  And I hadn't even looked at the art yet!

When I did.....I was blown away.  Joe Haemmerle and the rest of the art team not only expertly render the action sequences and the conversations with the same sense of motion, but the DETAILS are incredible.  The uniforms of the soldiers, the surroundings.  The interior of the plane!!!  I couldn't help but immediately get Tony and his team on board and get this book out into the world!

REWARDS!!

We've packed this campaign with some of the best rewards we've ever come up with!  Pictured below are the three prints being made for this campaign by series artist Joe Haemmerle, the brilliant Victor Pozzi and the incomparable Erik Roman!
