STRETCH GOAL $12,000- BOOKMARKS! Everyone seemed to like the bookmarks last time so we're doing it again! 

"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 (3-6 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!

Here's a look back at the first issue cover!

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. The second issue picks up right after the first with (SPOILERS) Felix being chased by robots!

 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...

 These next issues like the first issue  will be 23 pages long, fully pencilled, inked, colored, and lettered by me, with a  backup comic by my brother Logan Smith. This will conclude the first arc: "Kill the Monkey."

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!

Rewards include your choice of ISSUES, the T-SHIRTS below, PRINTS, and one of my SKETCHBOOKS!

Risks and challenges

The only risks really are the packages that will be sent out. If any of the rewards are really bent up and damaged, I'll be happy to replace them. I learned a whole lot about shipping internationally last time, so there is additional shipping charges for over-seas shipping, hope you understand. I also know now about the specifics of going through customs, so there won't be an issue there this time. Other than that just getting the books done and in your hands!
