2030 marks the year Jack Crimson, a troubled werewolf, will never forget. A crazed doctor, a mysterious red pill, and two red nantotech arms change the course of Jack's life making it very difficult to...well to do anything he wants to do. In a world where society has accepted Vampires, Zombies and Werewolves as equals, tension is starting to rise. On the brink of a race war between humans and supernatural beings, Jack struggles not only to find his place, but whose side he's on...

Now...the story continues.

With new allies and new threats, Jack discovers more about his unique situation and stumbles upon a pleasant but terrifying surprise.  In addition to new characters, issue 2 opens up the dark and mysterious past of Jack and Lacey.  Learn what triggered the wolf to seek his cure!

With Issue 1 successfully funded and launched, I'm hoping to keep the train rolling!  So thankful for the supporters on the previous campaign, and now am hoping to finish this four part arc with the launch of issue 2.  On my previous campaign, I learned a lot about how to plan out a Kickstarter and since then, have done plenty of homework in hopes of putting together what I think are awesome rewards and a plan everyone will hopefully want to jump on board.  With limited edition print copies, digital fan kits, and even the opportunity to get an artist edition variant, I think we've got some incredible rewards!

The series will be illustrated by the incredible Carlos Trigo, colored by the amazing Andrea Celestini, and lettered by the new badass on the block for team Crimson Society, Deron Bennett.  In addition to all of the upgrades in different types of pledge rewards, I'm doing something a bit different with the stretch goals on this project.  My original plan was launch a Kickstarter to fund the rest of the series, but fearing the goal would be too high, I didn't want to deprive the fans I do have of potentially losing out on more story.  So this time, I'm launching with a goal of at least launching issue 2, but the stretch goals are going to include goals we can meet to include issue 3 AND issue 4.  With your help, not only can we continue to the next part of this awesome story I've cooked up for you, but maybe even finish the series!

Below are the stretch goals I've planned out for the campaign.  

  • - $3,500 - LOCKED - FUNDED!! Issue 2 is happening!
  • $4,500 - LOCKED - Free pin and bookmark pledges $30 and up!
  • - $7,000 - LOCKED - Issue 3 produced! All $15 and below backers get a digital PDF copy and everyone $30 and up gets a print copy!
  • - $10,000 - LOCKED - Issue 4, the conclusion to the arc, will be produced!  Same rules as the previous goal apply.

Risks and challenges

The story is off to a great start with the previous funding of Issue 1, but in order to continue the saga of Jack Crimson, I'll need to raise enough funds to pay my creative team and any production costs involved. I already have all quotes and printing costs ready and budgeted for in my goal, just need your help to achieve it.

Without getting too ambitious and trying to kickstart the rest of the series, I'm doing my best to continue to put out quality product and release the story I am dying to put out with just a campaign for issue 2. That being said, I've designed stretch goals purely in hopes that you all will see how special this project is, and help spread the word so that we can fund the next three issues and complete this arc.

Regardless, I truly appreciate your time.
