About

 What is City of Angels?

City of Angels is a dark and miserable town infested with criminals, crooked cops and sexy dames. Some searching for vengeance some for redemption and others, just want it all. The Fallen Valkyrie is one of three crime noir graphic novels in the City of Angels series.

CHARACTERS:

JOSIE : Is a 13 year old girl with short dark hair a skull cap, and old beat up leather jacket. A hammy down from her mom. You can tell Josie’s innocence is lost, being force to grow up in the harsh reality of City of Angels.

Takeo: Is a 37 year old short Japanese man with short black hair. He wears a turtle neck sweater, combat pants, boots and a shoulder holster. He's a trained killer and the right hand of Mr. KANE.

 MR. KANE: Is a 40 year old well dressed 300 pound bald black man. He’s City of Angels Drug Kingpin Overlord and supplier of the drug nick named Kandy Kane.

 Kirk: A loner in the mean streets of City of Angels, slowly slipping into isolation and misanthropy. He grows increasingly disgusted with the corruption and human filth in the City of Angels, it's been 8 years since he was framed for the murder of his family. Locked away in a Mental Asylum just waiting for his chance to settle the score, by finding the bastards who framed him. While on his trail of bloody revenge he discovers just how far up the killing really goes.

 And some of the Lovely ladies of City of Angels.

 Why we need the Money?

This represents a very heavily discounted rate (70% off) from the normal fee for professional illustration, which includes penciling, inking and lettering.

 MATTHEW FAGAN- Writer
 
Hey Everyone! I just wanted to thank you all for checking out our Kickstarter. I'm a 23 year old Full Sail University Creative Writing Graduate Class of 2015. Ever since I graduated I've been hard at work on the story you see today. The reason Mark and I have worked so hard is because there's very little noir out there to read and that's a Damn shame because it's a gorgeous style. Like many writers, I want to tell stories close to my heart without corporate interference. With help from the Fans that's possible. Thank you!

 Art Submission: 

 I want to include some guest art in the back of the printed book. And so… I'm going to ask for art submissions while this campaign is live to give you a chance to get your art featured in the gallery of City of Angels: The Fallen Valkyrie. Send me your amazing artistic version of the City of Angel characters, Mark and I will choose some of them to be printed in the book. FOREVER! We will credit you in the book too. email me at Greenbomber1@gmail.com

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges:
The biggest risk to CIty of Angels is not reaching its funding goal. The Script 100% Done. Mark and I are dedicated Professionals who can deliver this project. We've also hired a fulfillment company to handle delivery of all rewards. Almost all funds will go to compensating Mark with the Industry Standard Wage and Shipping, Printing Fees. January 2017 is worse case scenario.
