CORPUS CHRISTI – The Comic Book is a mini-series that ran 6 issues between 2011 and 2013 and has sold over 2,000 copies, with issue #1 still selling and about to hit a 5th printing at nearly 1,000 copies sold.  It was featured in several news articles as well as radio play and interviews regarding its accompanying CD soundtrack, featuring the song "VISION, PART II" by studio act 2023.

During the course of it’s initial run, many fans asked if this story would ever be collected in a complete hardcover edition with some bells and whistles; and if this Kickstarter is successful, this project will become a reality!

This hardcover edition will be over 300 pages and include the following:

1.)  The complete original storyline of issues #1-6

2.)  Introduction by Dr. Wayne Gunn of Texas A&M University – Kingsville.

3.)  A full color cover gallery of every variant cover of the title

4.)  The CD soundtrack as featured on Corpus Christi's C101.

5.)  A hand drawn sketch inside every copy by Trent Westbrook

6.)  Interviews and additional content

7.)  Signed and numbered.

Due to printing costs, this book is a specialty item that will NEVER be reproduced outside of this Kickstarter.  This project will be the only opportunity to obtain this complete hardcover edition of the entire first volume of CORPUS CHRISTI. 

NOTE (PLEASE READ!):  Since a majority of the title’s fans live in the Corpus Christi, Texas area, we have provided the option for fans to pick up their items locally at one of two comic shops in the city: Comics Plus at 5425 South Padre Island Drive Suite #145, or Collector’s Planet at 5929 McArdle Road in Gulfway Shopping Center.  This way, fans can avoid shipping charges.  If you live in the Corpus Christi, Texas area and would like to pick up your items locally, be sure to pick your items labeled LOCAL PICKUP ONLY.  Otherwise, if you would like your items shipped to your mailing address, please pick your items labeled USPS DELIVERY ONLY.  Be sure to pick the correct one. The participating comic shops WILL NOT mail your items to you if you choose LOCAL PICKUP ONLY; they are only providing a location for you to pick up your items in person and are not responsible for any home delivery.  If you choose USPS DELIVERY ONLY, your items will be sent to your provided mailing address and will not be available for local pick up.  If you are unable to pickup your items locally after choosing the LOCAL PICKUP ONLY option, you must contact us and you will have to make an additional payment afterwards to have your items shipped to you which may cause a delay in getting your items.  CHOOSE WISELY!  :)

2023 Comics would like to thank all the fans that made CORPUS CHRISTI a successful flagship title for us!  2023 Comics would also like to thank the owners of Collector's Planet, Comics Plus, and Disc Go Round of Corpus Christi, Texas for their patronage of the title.  Without your support, none of this would have happened, and we truly appreciate you all.  None of this is taken for granted - THANK YOU!

Risks and challenges

What is great about this project is that all the work for the book is complete! It is literally just a matter of getting the work into print and then into yours hands. We will be using RA Comics Direct for the printing. We’ve been happy with them regarding our latest comic book release, and feel they can handle the hardcover edition in a quick and timely manner.
