OUR STORY

A team of down on their luck doctors are blackmailed into providing healthcare for super villains.  Over the course of the six issue storyline "First Do No Harm" the doctors, led by brilliant Ethan Sharp must struggle with the ethics of aiding the worst of humanity while also trying to overcome the grip of Malady, a villain who knows their dirty secrets and will stop at nothing to keep them on the bad side. Written by Jeff Dyer and Dr. Mark McKeon with art by David Brame, MediSIN explores the morals of medicine in a world dominated by super villains.

With the funding and support that our backers provide we plan to pay our letterer and colorist, pay for the postage of all the fabulous rewards, Kickstarter fees, taxes and contingencies.

We have completed the artwork for Issues 1 and 2. Issue 3 will be completed by the end of the kickstarter campaign. We need your support so Adam and Joaquin can color and letter the remaining 2 1/2 issues. Once those are complete we look forward to starting on the second half of the series. 

If our initial funding is exceeded we want to get part 2 of the series colored and lettered, issues 4, 5 and 6 and create a lot more exclusive content for backers on all levels.

Risks and challenges

We are working with a reliable Print on Demand company through our Publisher Action Lab Entertainment. The first 2 issues are drawn and ready to be colored and lettered. The 3rd issue will be complete and ready for color and letter at the end of the Kickstarter campaign. Issues 4,5 and 6 are already written and edited. If we make our stretch goals we can bring you those issues as well.

We have accounted in our timetable to deal with the onerous issue of shipping. We are a quick and professional group of creators risk is low.

Adam and Joaquin are just waiting to know is they are funded !!
