AGENT WILD: Union Fall #1 & #2 (OF 5)
AGENT WILD battles her way through friends, foes and cybernetic werewolves in an attempt to stave off galactic civil war!
Remember the glitz and glam of early Image comics? The spectral of it all? The FUN? We do too and that's what we're here to deliver. Just FUN sci fi action adventure. Agent Wild is what you'd get is you put equal parts Buffy, Men In Black and The Matrix into a blender on high speed. Strong female characters with thought provoking stores set in visually exciting locals...and stuff blowing up!
Tabbita Vaynor is the Princess of Wylanar. One of many alien races belonging to the intergalactic federation known as the Union of Species. More importantly she's a 'Hunter Agent' for the Union's paramilitary force known as 12TH HOUR which polices the secret population of Union of Species citizens on Earth.
Following on the heels of AGENT WILD #0, this new AGENT WILD: Union Fall 5 issue mini-series sees Agent Wild fighting both friends and foes to weed out insurgents and uncover the truth about who's behind the conspiracy that threatens galactic civil war and why the non Union planet Earth is at the center of it all. It's a race against time as various Union species begin to ready themselves for war with billions of lives, over millions of light years, hang in the balance. It all starts here in AGENT WILD: Union Fall 1 & 2.

Why KICKSTARTER? Why NOW? Where's my money going?
Why KS? Like many of you, I'm a huge comic fan FIRST, creator second. I've been an avid supporter of the Kickstarter platform, in particularly comics (see my profile). I've successfully funded two comics and a short film. I love to create and share my creations directly with you, the consumer/fans. And yes, like many of you, I'm not swimming in extra money so Kickstarter's a fantastic platform to get creations out there and I'm blessed to have had the support of many of you and I THANK YOU! Why now? I've been doing Comic Cons with AGENT WILD #0 for over two years and I keep seeing the same fans with the same question? 'When are you doing more Agent Wild?' Hopefully now. I want more Agent Wild just like you do. So let's make it happen. Where's my money going?
$4,000 - Printing. We're doing two books (64pg #1 and 24 pg #2), offset printing at 1000 copies each w/ 2 covers for each issue.
$3,000 - Talent. This is our Inker, Colorist and Letter. Writer/Penciler/creator Don Walker will receiver ZERO dollars from this campaign. This allows us to come her and ask for less money, increasing our chances of success.
$2,000 - Shipping rewards to backers. This is the number one thing most campaigns mess up (I've messed it up myself). We've taken measures to keep that from happening again.
$1,800 - Reward costs. The production of rewards (like the inking/coloring/ printing of the trading cards, prints, metal rewards etc). And the shipping of those reward to Dork Empire Ink so we can package and ship to you, our backers.
You work hard for your money and like me you back numerous projects when able and I aim to give you quality books and valuable rewards for your help in making these creations a reality.

Risks and challenges
The number of ways a campaign can go sideways are too numerous to calculate but I can say I've experianced many if not all of them with the original AGENT WILD #0 Kickstarter campaign. Everything went great, we doubled our goal and all was right with the world. Then Mr. Murphy's Law came knocking and burned my house down, figuratively speaking! Everything that could go wrong did. Production delay's from my art team. Team members disappearing, turning in work late, or me having to FIRED some of them and then replacing them with superior, but more costly creators. All that extra money VANISHED do to these factors and the book became SUPER late.
Needless to say and to my eternal shame, I became 'THAT GUY! The guy who people use as an example of why kickstarter sucks etc. ALL the packages have been sent out.It just took entirely too long and literally almost $4,000 out of my own pocket to fulfill my responsibilities.
I messed up and I've learned from that experience. This campaign has been calculated down to the last dime. I have behind the scenes help and a team of creators already working with me on these books, so we're ahead of schedule. I can't promise NOTHING will go wrong this time around. But I can say I'm more prepared than every before to meet any of those challenges. I have my BRASS KNUCKLES! I'm ready for Mr. Murphy this time!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
