Story.

...Following the life of a professional killer who goes by the name Mr Charlie Cooper; Charlie is a man who wants out, to disappear from the game for good, but in order to do so he must fulfill the buyout clause within his contract. Unfortunately, being one of the finest in the business means that his freedom will only be available to him at the highest of costs.

His latest job is a suicide mission to topple the group known as The Black Cat Cafe and their psychotic leader. If he manages to complete this final act of his career and survive a world of drugs, violence and unadulterated mayhem, it will be enough for him to leave the game for good with no strings attached.

アシッドドロップ、それは君を他とない旅路へ連れて行ってくれるストーリーである。殺し屋のプロ、チャリーパーカーのダークでユーモア且つおぞましい人生の一節…。

このゲームから永遠に立ち去りたい男、チャーリー。このゲームに別れを告げるに買収条件を満たさなければならないが、この業界でトップになるということは莫大な額の仕事を負うということ、すなわちそこにしか自由になるすべがないのである。

チャーリークーパーの新しい仕事はブラックキャットカフェの名で知られるグループのサイコなリーダーを潰すこと。もしドラッグ、暴力、暴動…この仕事に成功すれば後腐れなく永遠にこのダークなゲームから去れるチャンスなのだ。

Why Kickstarter?

This is my first Kickstarter project so I'd like to thank everyone in advance for the support. Not only is this my first Kickstarter, but it's also my first ever release for a graphic novel. Over the years I’ve been drawing and drafting ideas to have my first published book, but due to other projects, finances and life commitments my dream was always put to the back of the line, on the shelf collecting dust... until NOW.

Funds.

The money is to cover all production costs which will include printing the Limited Edition Acid Drop book, overseas shipping, packaging materials and Kickstarter fees. The funds will also be used to create and ship the rewards on offer for the project. 

As you may be aware, producing a book of this type, in the format and scope I'm aiming to achieve is an expensive venture which, I can't do without YOUR support. With your help, I hope to get this book into the hands of my supporters, artists and comic/book connoisseurs everywhere. 

Rewards.

Ok, let's get down to business, I have the drugs...

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

I will be solely responsible for the development of the story, Illustrating artwork and sourcing the printing, therefore, if for any reason I experience any issues that inhibit my production, I will inform all my backers immediately on any alterations. I will do my best to ensure that all deadlines are kept and promise to deliver this project to you in a timely manner. I can't do this project if funding is unsuccessful, which means it will go uncompleted and probably end up back on the shelf.

Another top priority is making sure I get this book to you in good time and on schedule, because I know shipping can be the most complicated part of running a Kickstarter project. Please make sure to include a permanent shipping address to avoid any confusion or delivery issues, and International backers, please do not forget to include the shipping amount to your pledge.

You can keep track via updates here on Kickstarter and on my blog (www.AcidDrop.jp) sharing progress of the project right up until completion (Major updates on the site are for backers only via the PDF Membership card).

Many Thankyou’s for taking the time to view my Kickstarter and please feel free to contact me anytime with any queries.
