About this project
Hello Kickstarters! We are a small group of friends, artists and writers and we call ourselves Imaginos Workshop. We operate out of Michigan and our mission is to generate cool intellectual property such as comic books, TV pilots and movie scripts. We are actively involved in these areas already but our driving passion is comics: and as you’ve seen from our video above, we are seeking funding to finish our comic book sampler “Imaginos Plus”. At 25 pages, “Imaginos Plus” would introduce three of our original comic storylines, all put together in a single, awesome package. We already have the entire script done, and we’re hard at work doing the penciling for the pages. But finishing the book will require inkers and colorists, as well as the cost for printing the book itself. To do all of that, we’re going to need your help.
As an update we will be donating a portion of our Sampler sales at the local comic stores to Youthville. It is a great organization that does some amazing work for local kids here in Detroit. Please check out the link to see for yourself:
Here are brief synopses for the three comic properties:
A character-driven sci-fi mystery of epic proportions. Taking place in the Baktun star system, the story centers on the struggle of a group of “black bag” agents against a sinister, galactic corporate entity known as Daikenkai. However, there is more to the conflict than any of the protagonists realize, as every answered question, not only raises more questions, but also comes at a price. It is a dark, suspenseful and highly cerebral story which will prove that the struggle for existence comes not just externally, but also from within.
Candy Coated is a colorful superhero action comedy that has a special meaning to all of us at Imaginos Workshop. It is based on the pen-and-paper RPG “Heroes Unlimited” by Palladium Books, and every character and event that occurs in the comic book happened spontaneously as we gamed it out! The main characters are heroes we created ourselves, and the result is a group whose good intentions are usually foiled by their selfish and destructive tendencies. It is a unique and organic approach to storytelling, and the result is action packed, hilarious and unpredictable!
Juda Fist: 7 Deaths of the Yobi
An afro-futuristic martial arts epic that combines elements of dystopian sci-fi, horror, blaxploitation and Honk Kong cinema to create a unique, narrative fiction of true hip hop culture and inspired by the works of renown authors Octavia Butler and Daniel Keys Moran.
It focuses on a group of high-tech combat specialists as they fight cybernetic gangsters and a menagerie of paranormal threats in a gritty, futuristic Detroit. They are antiheroes that nonetheless try to make a real impact in their community, as their lives are woven into an ancient conflict that threatens to engulf the entire solar system.
So there it is! Three exciting properties all introduced in a single book that we hope to debut at Detroit’s own Youmacon 2012 which is one of the fastest growing anime conventions in the United States! And if that’s not cool enough, Imaginos Plus will also serve as a platform for the return of Drunkenstyle Studios,
a legendary Michigan-based comic art studio with deep roots in the Detroit artistic community! We are creating this book because, like you, we have a passion for art and comics, and with your help we will be able to get this book done much sooner than would be possible without your generosity.
This sampler will give readers an introduction to 3 comic properties that we care about a lot, and hopefully this book will serve as a springboard to produce these issues. We are planning on submitting the Imaginos Plus book to creator owned comic publishers, where hopefully we will find a producer for our properties. All funders will be notified as we release project updates, and in the meantime you can check out our blog (http://imaginossite.blogspot.com) and our Facebook page for updates and thoughts. From all of us at Imaginos Workshop a heartfelt Thank You for checking out our project and for all of your support!
Risks and challenges
Marketing is a huge challenge but it is something that we have already begun to tackle aggressively by actively going out and promoting our product. As far as Delivery of the Rewards is concerned, we have factored in enough funds to assure both Domestic and International deliveries. We have established a system where our focus is to assure that our backers reeceive their rewards promptly and their faith in our efforts is honored by completing our project sucessfully.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
