Funding Unsuccessful

This project's funding goal was not reached on June 27, 2014.

A grumpy Angel and a trouble-making Demon join forces and battle the legions of Heaven and Hell to stop the birth of the Anti-Christ.

About this project

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE: In speaking with the artist, our goal amount of $12,000 will now allow us to complete a FULL 125-PAGE GRAPHIC NOVEL! I am not able to change the rewards sections for any reward that was already selected by a backer. So if you chose a reward that said you would get ISSUE #1, you will now receive the FULL 125-PAGE GRAPHIC NOVEL! And obviously that's better than just one issue.

So at $15, you will get the digital version of the FULL GRAPHIC NOVEL!

And at $25 OR HIGHER, you will get the printed FULL GRAPHIC NOVEL!

So please spread the word because I cannot change several of the packages to indicated what has happened.

And now back to the original version....

There's the story...and then there's "the story."

The first story is the actual project. That's the story of a surly, fire-whip-wielding Angel named Brother U...

...and a mute, sword-toting Demon named Brother M...

...who become human, join forces and battle the legions of Heaven and Hell to prevent a ten-year-old girl from becoming the Anti-Christ.

It's a story with great action, awesome weapons, intriguing plot twists and plenty of laughs. It's a story with an entire universe of characters, each with their own unique abilities and individual personalities. 

It's the story of ethereal entities learning what it's like to be human, and humans learning what it's like to be more than human. It is a story of hope and rules and conflicting interests that lead to ideal bonds. It is a series of comic books that could be joined into a single graphic novel. It is killer artwork. And, with your help, it could be the first issue of...

The second story is that of the creator. That's the story of a little boy named Rob...

...who created a comic book about Angels and Demons in his head because he couldn't draw to save his life. It is a story about years of development as the little boy grew to adulthood. It is a story of decades of looking for kind souls like Peter Facinelli and Dave Stewart who wanted to get involved as mentors, of sweet artists who might help bring mental visions to vivid color on the page, of understanding hearts who might bring a boy's dream to life. It is the story of a grown man not wanting to sellout his childhood vision, not wanting to let go of his dream, and now trusting his baby to a cyberworld where fans can be found and incentive packages can create art.

It is my sincere hope that you will contribute to either of these stories. In doing so, you will contribute to both. And who knows? Maybe someday someone will ask, "How'd you get that cool shirt?"

And you can tell them, "The good people at Teelaunch made it for me being a Little Angel (or Little Devil) who helped a boy make his dream come true."

And if you want to know more about the project's history (and how Peter and Dave came on board), here are a couple videos to help:

Risks and challenges

The script for a complete graphic novel is written. The mental layout for 3/5ths of the novel is done. I am still working on the layouts for the remaining 2/5ths, which would conclude the full 125-page graphic novel of THE DELIVERY.

So far, we have had great success working with artist Joshua Chinsky to complete the panels used in this campaign. (His are the rates we used to determine our goals.) And with Peter and Dave guiding me, I do feel confident about meeting deadlines and successfully fulfilling our end of things. But there is no formal contract signed with Joshua. And as with any artistic collaboration, there is a risk of communication and specific details creating delays. There is also the risk of Murphy's Law, which tends to rear its ugly head on independent projects more than others.

What I can promise is that I will keep everyone up-to-speed on the status of the project via Kickstarter, Facebook and Twitter. I will not sacrifice quality to hit the deadlines, but I do feel like I have been pretty conservative in my time frame and that we will make it happen as stated in our campaign.
