What is DISPLACED?
Imagine. Imagine getting the escape you have dreamed of. To be swept off your feet and taken on a grand journey with no limits. No restrictions, living the life you want and not the life that had been handed to you. This isn’t that story… This story is the worst possible version of that. Getting swept off your feet to be taken on a death trip, never knowing that you will get to go home, to see your family. Forced to make decisions that will traumatize and make you the worst version of yourself. This is that story.
I have always dreamed of that escape from reality, going on a journey bigger than my mind could handle. I wanted to tell a tale that played on that idea. A journey bigger than you can handle and realizing that you don't want it, and you are stuck with it till the end.
This is the first part of a 5 Issue story following the journey of Eliza!
This Kickstarter is to fund printing of #1, All 19 pages of which are already completed!
What is the story?Eliza is a 17-year-old high school girl. Living day by day just making it through, making sure her little brother Jonathan is safe from the shocking realization that their parents are getting a divorce.
The story starts off with Eliza waking up in her room and realizing that something is not right. Of all the days this one is one that seems out of place. Her dad hadn't come home, and her mother is doing the best she can. Jon confronts Eliza about the fact that their father hadn't returned and doesn't understand why they fight all the time. Eliza' world gets flipped when a mysterious woman in a robotic suit tries to get her to come with her saying that she is in danger. The story picks up from here and trouble ensues.

Since the comic is already complete stretch goals willr go to getting backers more swag maybe a Button, Pin, Poster or maybe even an Art Print! None of them are for sure as of yet. We will see when we get there!
If the Kickstarter is very successful and does past any stretch goals that I set. Proceeds after a certain point will go towards DISPLACED #2 and get a head start before the Kickstarter for #2 I have set for September or October.

Risks and challenges
Any risk in this project is extremely minimal. All 19 pages of #1 are already complete and ready to go to print. We just need the money from the campaign to fund the first print run.
The service I am using to print is very close to where I live. Therefore I don't foresee any issues having all the rewards out to backers as early as August.
I have never done anything like this before. This is my first Kickstarter Rodeo. So my estimate of the time of getting the rewards might be pushed back. My estimate is late August at the earliest.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
