T.I.T.S. is an ongoing comic book series chronicling the adventures of our three primary protagonists Starla (a Seattle PD detective), Blotter (a cosmic cabbie), and Skitz Skatz (his cosmic kitty cat navigator). 

T.I.T.S. #1 COVER
T.I.T.S. #1 COVER

T.I.T.S. Issue #1 is a 24 page, full color comic book printed in standard 6.625X10.25 inch dimensions. Recommended for Mature Readers.

Starla is a disgruntled detective for the Seattle PD. She is at a bit of a crossroads in her life due to the constant lack of respect from some of the male officers within the department and an unfulfilling personal relationship with her poly lovers Sven and Destiny. This has left her feeling lost and directionelss though she puts up a tough front and tries not to reveal her insecurities to those around her.

  Blotter is a cosmic cabbie who works for the T.I.T.S. Corporation. He is usually intoxicated while behind the wheel of his cab and doesn't seem to take his job too seriously. His carefree and mischievous ways tend to cause him to bounce from one caustic situation to the next.

Skitz Skatz is a cosmic navigator. He is responsible for plotting out their courses to locate their intended Transmigrants. He is quite irritable, grumpy, and tends to lose his nerve in tense situations.

Our story begins as the cosmic duo of Blotter and Skitz Skatz (the two worst employees of T.I.T.S.) are haphazardly put on an assignment to travel to Earth, locate their intended Transmigrant, and deliver them to their intended destination across the cosmos.

 Between equipment malfunctions in their cab, their predilection toward mayhem, and generally being bad at their jobs, the cosmic duo get sidetracked as they roam the city of Seattle causing trouble.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the city, Starla is enjoying a bit of downtime at a local nightclub until she gets called into duty.

With Starla being a detective with the Seattle PD, it won't be long before Blotter and Skitz Skatz end up in her crosshairs. 

What ensues is an exciting, comedy fueled series that finds Starla caught in the middle of the otherworldly affairs of a host of strange beings causing trouble on our little planet.

  • The T.I.T.S. creative team consists of our two phenomenally talented artists: David Gunawan-pencils and colors for pages 1-7 and Eve Amadour-colors for the front & back covers and all subsequent pages. 
  • Colton Sorrels & Casey Sorrels both write and letter the comic.
  • Additional art for the credits page was created by Zoran Jankovic.

 We (Colton & Casey) first conceived of the idea for T.I.T.S. in the winter of 2013/2014. We spent almost a year plotting & writing the first 10 issue story arc, fleshing out characters, and defining the general scope of the series.

It was then that we brought David on board to do character designs and subsequently begin work on the first issue. David pencils all of the pages traditionally by hand on art paper at 10.5X15.75 inch dimensions.

After a couple of months, in order to speed up the production process, we brought Eve on board as well to take over the coloring duties. Both David and Eve approach the digital coloring for T.I.T.S. by using a hard brush, multi-layered style of coloring directly over the finished pencils. This gives T.I.T.S. a beautiful, painted aesthetic.

Over the last year and half we have completed the first five issues and are nearing completion on issue #6. We then plan to continue on with production of the first story arc and complete issues #7-10.

 OBJECTIVE:

Our objective with this kickstarter campaign is to raise funds for the printing of T.I.T.S. issue #1 and put it in your hands! We are using the offset printer Print Ninja to fulfill our printing needs.  

The total cost for printing and bulk shipping to us here in the US is around $1500.  Any additional funds raised beyond that threshold (minus KickStarter fees and shipping & packaging costs) will be used to fund further production on subsequent issues of the series.

COST BREAKDOWN:

This pie chart provides a breakdown to show how the pledge amount for an individual copy of T.I.T.S. #1 is allocated to each expense.

 SHIPPING:

All comics will be bagged and boarded. All comics, stickers, posters, and artwork will be shipped via USPS in sturdy stayflat mailers to ensure against damage during shipping.

 REWARDS:

-Digital PDF of T.I.T.S. #1     

 -Digital PDF of T.I.T.S. #1 "Behind the Scenes" 32 Page Comic

-Physical copy of T.I.T.S. #1

Risks and challenges

At this point, because we have completed production on the first 5 out of 10 issues for the first story arc, there are no production barriers to delivering this first issue. Once we have the issue #1 books printed up and shipped over to us, we will then handle individual reward fulfillments.

Printing for stickers has already been completed. Printing for posters will be handled here in the US and will take less than 1 month to receive on our end. After Print Ninja finishes the printing process it will take 2 months for us to receive the comic books. The only foreseeable challenge is the wait time to get them into your hands in less than 3 months after the end of the campaign due to the bulk shipping time.
