ERAS: Fung is set in San Francisco during the Summer of Love and follows Marvin Fung, magic consultant to the police, as he puts together clues about a series of magic and drug related murders with his father's old kid sidekick turned racist and bitter police officer.

For more information, check out an article about the story here.

The story works as a standalone piece but you can read the first ERAS story - ERAS: Parrish online for free.

Why Kickstarter?

Crowdfunding is a wonderful way to fund projects while also getting exposure and as far as systems go, Kickstarter has worked the best. We hope to raise enough money to print a god run of these without financial issues springing up and at the same time expanding the projects.

Stretch Goals

We know we will reach $100 based on past crowdfunding projects so we want to make the project bigger and bigger with stretch goals. When the levels are unlocked, we will go more into depth on what they mean.

  • $100 - Goal 
  • $200 - Art Book (Digital)
  • $300 - Upgrade Paper Quality
  • $400 - Color covers for b/w copies with special coverstock for all copies
  • $500 - Sketch Card (Unlocked Sketch Card Level)
  • $600 - Free commentary digital version of comics.
  • $700 - Free Print Artbook with every $15+ order.
  • $800 - All b/w books are now printed in color. Additional bonus for color orders. 
  • More?

Risks and challenges

Shipping will be potentially hazardous since we have one member over in the UK and another member in California - luckily 2 of us are in the Midwest. Shipping complications seem like the biggest potential issue but the scripts are done so the comics themselves should be finished quickly and we will let you know when milestones with the books are completed.
