Imagine you had a dead end job that you were held highly accountable for. Were an overachieving college student or had trouble even keeping a job at all, all while trying to start out as promising superheroes. A group of young heroes must deal with the mundane in order to experience the extraordinary, all on their 2nd Shift.
Our story takes place in San Diego, CA where our eclectic group of 4 inexperienced heroes battle against a man on a nonstop murdering spree. With the ability to feed off anger, who will be able to stop him? If they can, will they all survive?
John Hopper works long, thankless hours at "FishWorld" (a SeaWorld-like theme park based out of San Diego). Even with his assistant manager position, he's forced to share a 3-bedroom apartment with his friends/teammates Sarah, Eddie and Anne. The dregs of 9-5 gigs and the mundane existence of day to day life is only half the battle, as the real battle take place in the streets of San Diego. Slinging comics or boomerangs? Dicing onions or criminals? Bussing tables, or busting heads? Solving math or murders? All of the above. It’s going to be a long day.
Welcome to The 2nd Shift 2015 Kickstarter! This project is to fund printing of ISSUE #5 AND the TRADE PAPERBACK (collecting Issues 1-5) of the Creator-Owned series, The 2ND SHIFT! Our initial goal of $5,700 will help us pay for the printing costs of issue 5 & the TPB. Our secondary goal of $7,500 will help us pay our crew and the Kickstarter fees. Our first STRETCH GOAL of $8,900 will allow us to reprint issue #1 with a brand new cover which will be included in all rewards $25 and over! Other STRETCH GOALS will start at $9,000 which will include extra pages of back matter in the TPB, Spot UV, Hardcover if we're getting crazy, and any other things you guys can think of. Let us know what you want! First things first, lets hit that first goal...
As far as issue 5 and the Trade Paperback, there is no risk! The books are drawn and being colored & lettered as this KS goes on. By the end of this KS all work that needs to be done will be done.
The rewards that include drawings from the artist will take some time to go through, so be patient as Scott makes his way through each one for you! The rewards that include you being drawn in future issues will be within 1-5 issues of issue 5. Don't fret, they will be done!
