When Rebecca Bell manifests supernatural powers, she is branded as a witch and becomes the target of religious persecution in her 17th century New England village.

Hunted by a fanatical preacher vowing to cleanse the world of the unrighteous, Rebecca is aided by other outcasts with their own unique powers. The fight heats up to a fiery confrontation showing that the flames of justice cannot be extinguished by hatred and intolerance.

Gunpowder Witch is an action-packed alternative history graphic novel that tells a new tale of the Salem Witch Trials as witnessed by the superheroes of the time.

 

The Gunpowder Witch graphic novel is a 144 page fully-colored graphic novel. The book has 122 pages story plus bonus material including concept art, a creator spotlight, and more.

I was one week away from graduating college when I saw an advertisement online for a Comic Book Creator Club hosted by a local comic book shop, Heroic Adventures. I had decided to go to this Comic Book Creator Club get together as a way to continue my art after graduating even though, up until that point, I had never stepped foot in a comic book store and knew that I wouldn't know anyone at this event, something that made me rather nervous.  

After a year working together, we had completely taught ourselves how to make comic books and created an rag-tag independent comic publishing company (Stache Publishing) together and in the process, had all become close friends.  

Our first project as a group was to create a few short stories together and publish them in an anthology, highlighting our first year together as a Comic Book Creator Club. STACHE SHORTS #1 was released on Free Comic Book Day 2013 as a limited run first edition and sold out quickly.

STACHE SHORTS #1 featured a few short stories, concept art, pin-ups and short previews of future comics coming from Stache. One of those previews were for my comic that I had started creating, GUNPOWDER WITCH. It was only a 4 pages, black and white, and hastily lettered.  

After 5 years, I have finished the full graphic novel. I have written, pencilled, inked, colored, lettered, and designed this book myself and it has been a long road to get to this point.  

I hope you find interest in GUNPOWDER WITCH and consider supporting my campaign by ordering your copy of my book here on Kickstarter! Thank you so much!

I am publishing Gunpowder Witch through my independent comic book publishing company that I started with some talented friends.

Stache Publishing is an indie comic collective that is committed to supporting the art form of comics, indie creators, and the creative community. We believe that the independent comic community is overflowing with talent. By working together, we can achieve our highest goals. We've had some very generous help with backers on Kickstarter to help our ideas become realities. We cannot express the depth of our appreciation to all of you for your help. We hope that this campaign will reach people who may not have heard of this project any other way. Thank you backing and sharing my Kickstarter campaign.

 

Stache's Promise

Stache has produced a number of successful campaigns in the past and is passionate about its products and reader satisfaction. The team is 100% committed to our supporters.

Risks and challenges

The book is already done. I have paid the set-up fees for the graphic novel with my printer, and looked through the proof copy of the book and it is ready to go. Books will be shipped out very quickly soon after I would receive the funds from Kickstarter, assuming the goal is met.

I have helped with and have been responsible for other successful Kickstarter campaigns including previous Kickstarters for the first 2 chapters of Gunpowder Witch. No issues are anticipated, but as they arise I will do what we can to fix them quickly and keep you updated throughout the process.
