About this project

Suspect Device 4  is the 4th installment in a series of comics first begun in 2011. Its principal conceit is that the artists work on comics based on older characters and spliced in source materials. Adding new art to photocopies of old frames is encouraged and expected. The theme here is a unification between the past and today. 

This new issue adds a new wrinkle to the formula, borrowing images from the " Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopedia" alongside  the now familiar faces of characters like Annie, The Phantom, Popeye and others. The rest of the content is provided by our contributors, who riff off the older art to make new comics and illustrations.  Usually the more the artists are set free of restrictions , the more they enjoy the work and the more likely they are to meet the SD deadline. As a result much of the work is violent, transgressive or sexual, and a  surreal, demented or dreamlike approach to these topics  is welcome. 

The target of this campaign is 6000 dollars. A print run will cost $3500. Additionally, the Lulu book incentive is another $400 , and the video production for this project costs 600. Additionally, US taxes take out about $800 and kickstarter gets another 8 percent of the whole amount. Altogether the 3500 should be just about cleared by the campaign if it is successful. Any extra money will be applied to making a kids version of SD or simply to issue 5 for 2015.

In the past, SD has enjoyed cover art by Jon Vermilyea (1 and 2) and Kevin Scalzo (#3). The new one has a brilliant cover courtesy Josh Bayer and Raymond Pettibon. Contributors for issues 1-3 have included artists from almost a dozen different countries. Some of the most well loved figures of the underground  have submitted, including Raymond Pettibon, Gabby Schultz, Box Brown, Grafitti Artist Todd James,  Tom Hart, Caitlin McGurk, Derf, Julia Gfrorer,  Marc Bell, Brian Ralph, Johnny Ryan, Sam Henderson and Chuck Forsman.

The new issue welcomes back Noah Van Sciver, Muriel Bellini, Sasha Steinbergm Pat Moriarity, Elizabeth Bethea, Pat Aulisio and others along side first timers like Emma Louthan, JTW, Mark Burt, Andrea Tsurumi and Ben Marra. 

Thank you for checking it out, hopefully  this fundraiser will help insure that SD continues into the future and I appreciate every inch of your support.

Risks and challenges

This is the second kickstarter I've done. The first one was very successful, and I took it as a sacred pact to give back to everyone what they were owed. This is hard work but thats what makes it matter.

Some delays may occur due to human error, or unanticipated production breakdowns, but I will keep everyone abreast of all important developments.
