About this project
DOC UNKNOWN is a pulpy, supernatural action/adventure series about a man chosen by fate to battle the forces of evil during World War II. It's for fans of Batman: The Animated Series, Hellboy, and Planetary.
DOC UNKNOWN: Winter of the Damned & other tales will be a 104 page graphic novel. The book continues the strange adventures of the Gate City Guardian. Instead of putting out costly single issues we're going straight to trade. But before we can do that, we need funding to pay for Ryan's page rate (artists deserve to get paid!). The 5,500 will go to the art team, anything raised above that will go into the printing and shipping.
The book will feature an introduction by Michael Moreci (Hoax Hunters, Curse), 61 new pages of art from Ryan Cody (Atomic Robo: Real Science Adventures), the 12 page story currently appearing in Five Ghosts (Image Comics), and will include pin-ups from John Broglia (God Complex) Scott Godlewski (Dracula) Artyom Trakhanov (Undertow), Aaron Conley (Sabretooth Swordsman) and Nick Pitarra (Manhattan Projects).
We've got some awesome reward levels for older and new fans alike, so if you like your action/adventure comics with plenty of the supernatural, become a backer!
Risks and challenges
During the past year we have proven ourselves to be a creative team who delivers on time. Doc Unknown 1-4 shipped on a bi-monthly schedule, and the Boss Snake one-shot (and it's various Kickstarter rewards) all shipped out when we said they would.
Our record speaks for itself.
If you want to sample Doc Unknown before pledging, you can download all 4 issues of Volume 1 on ComiXology for 4 dollars!
Frequency of Fear is 32 pages
Songs of the Forgotten is 22 pages
Ghosts of Gate City is 20 pages
Winter of the Damned is 12 pages
Ryan's story is 7 pages
Yes. We will be adding that reward tier once we hit our goal!
