About

  Hell, Inc. is an office comedy set in Hell - think The Office meets Dante's Inferno. It is the story of Doug, a lowly office drone desperately trying to wring any bit of happiness he can out of his soul-crushing existence. 

Hell, Inc. launched as a webcomic in February, 2018, and has posted weekly since then. The result, 84 strips covering two story arcs, are being collected in print for the first time as "Welcome to Hell... Inc." and "Candied Sheep Day." Each 60 page volume will contain a 42 strip arc from the webcomic as well as a book-exclusive short story. Let's take a look at those books, shall we?

Hell Inc. Volume 1 - Welcome To Hell... Inc.
Hell Inc. Volume 1 - Welcome To Hell... Inc.

  In "Welcome to Hell... Inc." Doug's day is thrown into chaos by the arrival of a new intern, Sara, and an escalating series of disasters involving photocopies. How's a demon supposed to have time to flirt with his office crush when even machines are out to ruin his day!?

This volume features the exclusive short story "Sara's Morning." Before she ended up in B.L. Zebub's office, Sara had a "fun" morning learning she had died and meeting Cerberus.  

Hell, Inc. Volume 2 - Candied Sheep Day

 In "Candied Sheep Day," the most delicious day of the year is turned into a perilous maze of Inhuman Resources meetings, heartbreak, and trying to figure out how to feed the intern. Oh, and the boss gave his computer a venereal disease, so THAT'S a problem that needs solving. 

This volume's exclusive short story is "The Missing Ingredient," which sees Doug, Bridget, and Steve's cube-mate Harry continue his search for the missing ingredient for the masterpiece cooking in his desk's soup drawer. 

"But Jeff, how will I know if I like this comic?" you ask, for the purposes of this transition. Good question, dear reader. You can check out the webcomic and see if you like it! Just click here, or on the image below.

  I'm Jeff Martin, and I'm an award-winning cartoonist from Edmonton, Alberta. My previous two Kickstarter projects, Where Is Zog? and Hockeypocalypse: Cult of Hockey were both nominated for the Gene Day Award for Self-Publishing (part of the Joe Shuster Awards for Canadian Comics), which recognizes the best self-published comics by Canadian creators. 

Risks and challenges

There's always a possibility that there will be an issue with the printing that will make things take longer, but that's about the only problem foreseeable. The books are done and ready to go to the printer as soon as the campaign funds.

I've done two previous Kickstarter campaigns, for Where Is Zog? and Hockeypocalypse: Cult of Hockey, and both delivered on time and without issue.
