Sunsara: Book One (Canceled)
In a world ruled by corporations, a corporate assassin and her robot-embodied father look to settle an old score.
The newest update is for backers only and includes all pages black and white page layouts from chapter 2.
Help make Sunsara a reality!
This is your call to duty. A plea from me to you to help make Sunsara a reality. Sunsara Book One will be over 120 pages. You can read issue #1 of Sunsara for free online at SunsaraComic.com to get a taste of what to expect from this series. I am asking for your help to make the rest of the series possible. The funding received through this Kickstarter will fund the completion of the first half of Sunsara and the printing of the book one.
The time and effort that it takes to create a comic book is enormous, especially if you're a one-person team. Plus there's the work involved in running a fundraising campaign and reaching out to various websites in the hopes they might help spread the word.
I love to tell stories. I've made comic books since I was young, and drawing has been a release for me, a way to express myself. I need your help to continue Sunsara.
Sunsara is the story of a cybernetically enhanced assassin who is seeking revenge against a powerful corporate master for the murder of her father ,whose persona lives on in Sunsara's robot assistant. Through the series we will find how she became who she is and follow her struggles, as she pursues her all consuming desire for revenge.
What the Goal Covers
The main goal allows for printing and creation of the first half of Sunsara. Printing a color book is costly, and short-run printing is not an option. I would lose money if I tried to print on demand, so I have to go with offset printing. The goal covers enough books to allow me to sell copies through SunsaraComic.com and at various comic book and gaming conventions I attend. I'll also sell through Amazon and Diamond Comic Distributors. I've also included stretch goals as well, including the possibility of an exclusive cover for Kickstarter backers!
As a backer you will receive Sunsara Book 1 at a lower than cover price amount. This is possible because there's no middle man involved, but also because I want to reward you for making Sunsara happen. And if you go for just the PDF you're getting a HUGE deal. The cover price for the printed book will be $14.99, and any digital edition outside of this Kickstarter will be priced at at least $10. The goal also includes an estimation of what shipping and packaging will cost.
I've put together rewards that I think are fun and are things I would like. We have a good mix of items that I think everyone can enjoy.
Cool Things You Can Make Happen
Here are some "stretch goals", or as I like to call them "cool things you can make happen".
After the Campaign
If it's funded
If we reach our goal I will be hard at work finishing the book, as well as organizing the rewards. My goal is to get book one done and printed by September, but to be safe the official fulfillment date is October 11.
The story of Sunsara will be two books of this size, with possible short side stories in the future (as well as at least one spin-off idea I'm working on). So this will be a rich world offering a wealth of content, and you can make it happen!
I hope you can assist to make Sunsara a reality, and help me realize my dream of being a visual storyteller. Without your generosity this will not be possible.
Here's what you can do to help:
•Pledge your support and help finance Sunsara!
•Spread the word through Facebook, Twitter, message boards, tell your friends, wherever you can mention Sunsara in any way.
With your generous direct support and sharing in whatever way you can, and as often as you can, you can make this happen.
The future of Sunsara rests in your hands.

Risks and challenges
The possible risks, outside of major life changes or accidents, are bottlenecks in the production of the remaining pages and creation of the books and rewards. I'll continue to update all backers as to where we are on a bi-weekly basis, posting shots of new pages or videos of me shackled to my computer, so you know that work is being done on the book. I'll also keep you up to date on the printing of the book and creation of the various rewards, leaving everything in the light of day. This is a project you are helping to make real, and with that I feel it's my obligation to make sure that any speed bump on the road to fulfillment and what I'm doing to correct any such incident be shared with you. If this is funded the book will reach you and any troubles in that process will be handled out in the open.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
