VSEPR is a superhero comic by Arrowsmith Studios where science is the superpower.

STORY: Lance is a scientist trying to make a name for himself in the renewable energy industry when he finds that there is some dirty competition. Lance finds he must fight with science to save his career. He is helped by Becky, the quirky brains of the operation, who supplies him with fancy gadgets and the newest science and technology.

WHY?:  As two artistically-inclined individuals in the field of science, we think STEAM is really important and wanted to combine art with science with superheroes in order to create a fun and family-friendly way to get excited and learn about science. Although this is only the first volume, we hope to get not only this volume printed with this Kickstarter, but also to eventually continue on to create more of this comic and/or science based art.

READ: Click to read the first half of the comic online.

GOAL: This kickstarter will allow us to finish and print VSEPR volume 1. If we finish that goal ($700) we can give you even more cool science stuff.

REWARDS: You already know about the comic, but with a $25 dollar contribution, you not only get the comic, but also this sweet exclusive science T-shirt we designed for this kickstarter,that Becky wears in the comic. It says "Think like a proton: stay positive" with the VSEPR logo on the back. Comes in all sizes.

STRETCH GOALS: At $1000, we're going to put bonus material in the back of the final, 36-page comic book that all our backers of $5 and over will get, plus our gratitude for being so awesome.

At $1500, all backers who are getting a shipped product ($10 and up) will get some EXTRA special science buttons designed by the artist and the writer shipped with their reward, and even more gratitude for being awesome.

At $?????, we will have to think of something else to give you, but we promise it will be as awesome as we can manage.

Risks and challenges

In order to keep this comic going, we need readers and supporters, like you. This Kickstarter will fund the printing costs for the first volume and shipping to send rewards to our backers, but we do need to maintain a readership to make VSEPR the educational and meaningful comic that we know it can be. Arrowsmith Studios is a self-published, active participant at local comic conventions such as Amazing Arizona Comic Con and Phoenix Comic Con, and we try hard to release a weekly comic page update on at least one comic we are working on online to read for free. With your support we hope to continue to work hard to bring you amazing comics.
