About this project

First I want to thank all of you for at least visiting my Kickstarter for KILLIAN'S ISLE, and for sitting through the awesome and awkward parts of the video! I have been working on KILLIAN'S ISLE for a few years...as a movie script and a graphic novel. It is time to put my dream to the test.

KILLIAN'S ISLE is a 100 page graphic novel written by Jeremy Frazier, featuring the art of Alfonso Pinedo. It will be a limited run, hand numbered, with cover art made just for the Kickstarter edition.

KILLIAN'S ISLE in a nut shell. A group of has-been and unknown celebrities have been chosen for the 17th season of the reality tv show, Survival. The producers hope to squeeze out one more year of solid ratings, while the cast hope for another chance at the elusive 15 minutes of fame...and of course ONE MILLION DOLLARS! The show is hosted by the dreaded Uwe Boll, feared film-maker and celebrity boxing champion. Not long after everyone gets settled, Cannibals attack; all non essential cast and crew beware. WARNING- You must read to find out the main cast's fate!

Cannibals!!!
Cannibals!!!

I have many inspirations for KILLIAN'S ISLE but mostly Tropic Thunder, Hostel, Evil Dead and some Gilligan!

KILLIAN'S ISLE is on Kickstarter because I want total control. I am sure I could sell it to a publisher, but then I might have to change things. Maybe they want me to add another character, or put in a big corporate sponsor or change the ending. I say NO! By supporting KILLIAN'S ISLE you get my vision the way Mother Nature intended...all natural no additives!

So where does your money go?

First I get to pay my awesome artist, Alfonso Pinedo (art, coloring, lettering). Good art doesn't come cheap! Next the money will cover all those wonderful rewards and getting KILLIAN'S ISLE printed.

What do I pay for?

I am covering the shipping from me to you, plus the large padded envelopes to protect your loot! I am also covering all the local advertising, the video and a few Pages of Artwork to whet your appetites!

Finally! The end is in sight! Please link and tweet and text about KILLIAN'S ISLE. Word of Mouth is still a powerful advertising technique!

Thank you. 

Jeremy Frazier

Risks and challenges

There shouldn't be any unique challenges for KILLIAN'S ISLE. Alfonso is good with deadlines and all the rewards will be made as soon as the money is in. I'm sure we can count on the USPS...so you should get everything on time! If anything does happen I will have some back-up money to throw at the problem!
The only hurdle I see is going beyond the initial plan. I will offer more rewards and set stretch goals to get KILLIAN'S ISLE into comic shops, Amazon and other brick and mortar stores.
