Our project unites twelve artists working side by side for months to produce twelve stories (almost 140 pages of comics!). The result is GAME BOSS: THE FINAL FORM – an original comics anthology. This anthology's contributors come from a variety of backgrounds—illustration, animation, and sequential art—and our processes range from digital to traditional, realistic to fantastical. Mainstream, Manga, and European comics—GAME BOSS has something for every reader. Now that we’ve created the comics, we’re turning to you for help! Kickstarter is a way for us to raise the funding necessary to publish and distribute our anthology. The best part is, if you contribute, you won’t be charged unless we reach our goal—so there’s no risk without reward!

With assistance from Dove McHargue, our Editor/Taskmaster

LEVEL 1: $5000

If we subjugate the level 1 challenge, we’re going to upgrade the paper stock of the book, giving all of our backers who order a physical copy a quality collector’s item. In addition, All physical copies of the book will come with a Game Boss sticker! Attach to your computer, notebook, or favored henchmen!

LEVEL 2: $8000

If we incinerate the level 2 challenge, all backers at the $50 tier or above will receive a Game Boss Tee Shirt to display their greatness and superiority over all other shirts.

LEVEL 3: $10,000

If we annihilate the level 2 challenge, all backers who order a physical copy will receive a sketch card with their book. This means more original art for you!

Risks and challenges

The pages of this anthology will be completed by the end of March. All artists are currently on schedule and committed to the project. Should an artist need to drop out, we would include additional rewards with all shipping tiers in compensation for loss of content.

There may be delays with printing and shipping. Should any problems arise we will keep our backers posted and get books and other rewards out as soon as possible.
