Ok, so let's start with the good news first.
Pussycats: Sex, Drugs, & The Impossible #1 is already finished!
This follow-up second series has already been submitted to run in the January 2017 PREVIEWS catalog, and will ship to comic shops worldwide in March 2017. This 2-issue mini-series which features both regular and variant photo covers also contains web links for uncensored pics and bonus video of Cowgirl Cathy cover model Debra A. Johnson!
So why are we doing a Kickstarter if the book is already done?
We spent more of our production budget on these awesome photo covers because they looked so damn sweet! So now we're just asking fans to help us cover some of our advertising costs. Thus, the low benchmark price for our Kickstarter goal.
Not familiar with Pussycats?
Pussycats is an all-female action/thriller team book from comic book veteran Vince Brusio, and it's a cross between Sons of Anarchy with Charlie’s Angels. Fans of Stray Bullets and Jennifer Blood will be in heaven. E-Comix’s Pussycats features ass-kickin' girls going up against gangsters and governments, showcasing divas of destruction that go by the names Mother Superior, Cowgirl Cathy, Schoolgirl Suzie, Nurse Nancy, and Powerhouse Pam.
Pussycats’ debut story arc featured real life adult film stars Karen Summer, Priya Anjali Rai, and Tanya Tate appearing as characters in the #0 issue, which sold out at the distributor level the month it was released.
Adult celebrities Bill Margold and Nina Hartley promoted the book during its 2014 promotion at San Diego Comic Con, where both Karen Summer and Tanya Tate signed promotional prints and ashcans, and were exclusively interviewed by Barbra Dillon from Fanboy Comics (now Fanbase Press), with the interview recorded and released as an mp3 download.

Here are videos of the 2014 SDCC signing:
The first series launched with an extensive marketing campaign that was covered by comic industry news sites such as Comic Bastards, Comic Wow!, Comicbuzz, PREVIEWSworld, First Comic News, Comic Social Club, Graphic Policy, Comics For Sinners, and others. Both the #0 and #1 issues ranked in Diamond Comic Distributors’ “Top 50 Small Press Comics and Graphic Novels” for 2015.
Here are links to preview pages for issues #0-4 of the first series.
So there you have it, folks. We're asking you to help us fund advertising costs for the next over-the-top adventure featuring our beloved femme fatales that shoot first and ask questions later.
Risks and challenges
Good news! There is NO RISK for this project! It's done! As our first series in 2015 shipped to retail comic shops worldwide with 100% on-time shipping schedules for the individual issues and the TP, so too will this series ship on time. We are professionals. We are only doing this Kickstarter for additional funding because we can say with 100% certainty that this project is DONE. We put our money where our mouths are. That's why we are so confident in asking for your help. This book WILL HAPPEN March 2017!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
