We have reached our funding goal with plenty of time to go! Check out our stretch goals below. More will become available as we unlock stretch goals!
VARIANT COVER ARTISTS (unlocked at our first stretch goal!):
Jason Meents, Meents Illustrated
Colorado Springs "Tykes" artist Jason Meents will be illustrating one of our stretch goal covers. Jason has made a name for himself drawing kid-friendly versions of many famous heroes and villains and we are thrilled to see his take on one of Sheath Comics' own characters!
Sarah Menzel, Cocoon Garden
Denver-based illustrator and color artist Sarah Menzel joins the fray! Sarah is an accomplished freelance illustrator skilled in creating surreal and colorful visions of fantastic characters and worlds. Sarah is also a credited Sheath Comics color artist, providing the colors on several books including Sheath #1!
Kevin A. Johnson, Comic Illustrator and Painter
Rounding out our three artists is Kevin A. Johnson. Kevin is a jack of all trades showing prowess in 3D modeling, sequential art, and traditional oil painting to name but a few of his artistic endeavors. Sheath Comics is extremely excited to have Kevin on board to design a painted cover which will showcase his breathtaking skill and incredible vision. Welcome to the team, Kevin!
Sheath #7 is the culmination of years of work and planning and we are absolutely thrilled to be able to offer it as part of a combined volume featuring all the action from Sheath 1-7!
We are raising funds very specifically to help pay for the production of Sheath #7 (inks and colors) as well as the associated cost of printing and shipping each book.
While this is our first time looking for financial support via crowd funding in producing a project, it is far from our first time creating a comic book. Not only is this the seventh book in the Sheath series, but Sheath Comics has also published several other comic books in the last 3 years (check out our website for a complete list of our published work!)
We are extremely proud of our ability to produce books on a regular basis that are nothing short of professional in quality.
We are dedicated to and passionate about making comics and we are excited to make Sheath #7 and the associated combined volume our best and most exciting publication to date!
You can absolutely count on us to ensure that the book you are backing is completed and shipped on time and at a high level of quality!
Risks and challenges
There are many independently published comic book projects that end after just 1 or 2 issues. The fact is, it is a tremendous amount of work to ensure that book evolves beyond anything more than a great idea. It is more difficult still to ensure that the idea is brought to life at a level of quality that matches the original vision.
Sheath Comics has been able to overcome the unique challenges facing independent comic creators to produce 10 (and counting!) unique stories.
The fact is, we love this book, this story, and these characters. Sheath #7 will be produced this year and, with the help of our backers and our community, we are confident that this will be our best entry in the series yet!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
