"THIS OFF BEAT TOWN" is a science fiction action comic taking place in the futuristic, dystopian, Hong Kong-esque city, Nero. The goal for the series (if successfully funded) is to have every arc (2-3 issues) take place in a different part of the city dealing with a completely different group of characters! Each arc would be a completely different story set in the same city!
This first arc tells the story of FELIX, an ex-mercenary monkey dude, on the run from his previous employer, who he has extremely pissed off.
Another mercenary by the name of C.R.O.W. has been sent to retrieve Felix by any means necessary.
And Wyatt is the sad sack sushi shop owner who gets caught up in the mercenaries' crazy battle...
This first issue of the first arc will be 22 pages long, fully pencilled, inked, colored, and lettered by me, with a two-page backup comic by my brother Logan Smith. This is the first issue of a 3 issue arc.
The money you guys are so generous to donate will be used primarily to print and ship all of the copies of the book to you! Also the money will be used to fulfill the rewards I've offered. To print the T-shirts, the prints, and to ship them to the people that paid for them! I have printers for all of these lined up, I just need the orders from all of you!
If successfully funded, and generally well received critically, I will bring the next issue to kickstarter as well!
Rewards include your choice of one of the T-SHIRTS below, PRINTS, CHARACTER COMMISSIONS, and one of my SKETCHBOOKS! As well as a physical copy of the book when its completed!
Examples of PAGES (The speech bubbles are removed to keep from giving away the story)
Some Concept Art!
The T-SHIRT options below! In Adult Small, Medium, Large, and XL!
11x17 Quality Print of your choice...More options to come
11x17 B/W Commission of any character you want
Risks and challenges
The only risks and challenges we face with this first issue is completing the book and making sure all of the rewards are printed and shipped to the right people! We don't predict any problems with getting that handled correctly, but there is always a chance of making a mistake, so be prepared.
If there are any misprints I will email you and let you know we are taking care of it. No one will receive misprinted items, they are all being shipped to me first to be checked and then they will be shipped to you guys!
