About this project

Illustrated Girl is the story of Sandra, a girl whose dreams are plagued by an entity known only as Nightshade. Each night she awakes to find herself covered in glowing markings, and even though they fade quickly, she fears the images are hiding in her skin. This young girl must face the monster within and come to terms with the arcane power embedded in the images.

This exciting new comic book series comes from creator and writer Jackson Compton (https://www.facebook.com/AuthorJacksonCompton) and artist Natasha Alterici (http://www.alterici.com), with the stunning and accomplished Sandra Pagan (https://www.facebook.com/sandra.pagan.31) providing the likeness for our hero. Issue one will be 24 pages and feature a Kickstarter exclusive oil painted variant cover. That's right! Backers will have a true collectible that no one outside of this campaign will have. Though we will hopefully print and distribute this comic on a bigger scale in the future, only the Kickstarter issues will feature this special art.

We are super excited to roll-out this project. Our original plan was to produce a trade paperback of the first story-arc of Illustrated Girl. After carefully considering the advice of Kickstarter veterans, we've decided to fund this series an issue at a time and produce the trade after subsequent issues are completed.

 

 

We want to keep this project as simple as possible including the reward structure. Unless we exceed our initial goal, we're not going to worry about stretch goals, though we have a few ideas in mind if you guys blow our goal out of the water. Any additional funds received will be pumped into the next issue and those after that.

Our main goal was to have the artwork completed BEFORE the Kickstarter campaign started so that turnaround will happen within a month or so of the successful funding of this project, and the artwork is complete. We plan to do the same with future issues. Who wants to wait a year for something they can have in 4-8 weeks? Exactly! If you'd like to see more artwork, give our Facebook Page a Like. Thank you for bringing this dream to existence!

Risks and challenges

There's always risks with anything in life....fortunately, ours is very minimal. The artwork for the first issue is done. We just need to pay the creative team, printing, rewards, and shipping. Should any unforeseen issues arise, they will be dealt with swiftly and to our backer's satisfaction. Without your support, this project goes nowhere fast.
