DESTINY NY: Volume Two -- ONE HOUR LEFT!

$26,773

Destiny, NY is the story of Logan McBride, a former magical girl who was the subject of a prophecy when she was a teenager. She has completed that prophecy, and is now trying to figure out how to live a normal life as she turns thirty.

Last year, we ran a successful campaign to publish the first volume of Destiny, NY. When we surpassed our goal and raised over $21,000 thanks to some AMAZING support, we realized we had the chance to keep telling stories in this world. 

Now, we're back with a campaign to fund Destiny, NY Volume Two!

Keep an eye out -- much more art to come, including a full download of Chapter One for everyone to see for free!

In this volume, we're digging deep into the lives of our characters. Logan has been in a relationship with Lilith Aberdine, a mysterious rich woman coming out of a shattered crime family, for a year now. As they attempt to survive in a city where Lilith's past causes new problems for them at every turn, the kids at Logan's former magical school have their own issues.

Catch up with prophecy girl Gia Espinosa, awkward seer Anthony Lily, never-shuts-the-hell-up star pupil Joe Rollins, former-gangster-current-barista Trinity Klein, hopelessly romantic/helplessly cynical Augusten Rogers, and more return for this 200 page+ graphic novel set in a New York City where magic is a real and accepted part of life.

Writer/co-creator Pat Shand (Guardians of the Galaxy, Vampire Emmy, Robyn Hood) returns to continue the story of Logan and Lilith, and is joined by new series artist Rosi Kämpe who will be taking over full art duties. Rosi is known for her popular webcomic Unknown Lands, as well as her work on Marvel's X-Men

Letterer Jim Campbell and editor Shannon Lee return, along with co-creator / Volume One artist Manuel Preitano who will be illustrating the cover, prints, chapter breaks, pin-ups, and a short story for this volume.

One of our favorite parts about DESTINY, NY is using this world to spotlight creators that we love. That's why we're including a bonus chapter featuring 7 new stories about the supporting cast of DESTINY, NY by some of the best creators in and out of the comics industry, including:

We have a bunch of amazing rewards, including levels that combine lower-level rewards to offer bundle deals. Here is a simple breakdown of each product we're offering, but be sure to look at the list of rewards on the side as well to see a comprehensive list of how you can get each of these products. These images only show the basic addition of this pledge, but you can see on the sidebar the list of items these include. 

The higher you pledge, the more items you get for one purchase! Remember, you're getting more than what's pictured. Every pledge level will include the book!

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All higher level pledges include previous items. Be sure to look at the list of rewards on the right to explore the details of each of these rewards.

As we hit stretch goals, we will add content to EVERY backer's rewards! I'm going to be rolling out more over the next few days, so stay tuned to the final stretch of the campaign.

 

STRETCH GOAL #1: $25,000... 6-PAGE STORY BY VITA AYALA & FABIAN LELAY

A page from Fabian Lelay and Vita Ayala's story. Help make this story happen by getting us to $25,000!
A page from Fabian Lelay and Vita Ayala's story. Help make this story happen by getting us to $25,000!

ACHIEVED! We have now hit $25K, so DESTINY, NY VOLUME TWO will include this bonus comic about high school necromancer Cherry by VITA AYALA (Suicide Squad, Bitch Planet) and FABIAN LELAY (Jade Street Protection Services). More content, no cost to you!

STRETCH GOAL #2: $30K... AN ENTIRE NOVEL, FOR FREE!

DESTINY GIRLS! This full-length novel, written by me, will be given free to every backer as a digital download if we hit $30K. Destiny Girls is a prequel that tells an early story of Logan at Destiny University. Young love, magic, danger, school, and cats! It's told in the style of classic 1990s book series like The Babysitters Club & Goosebumps... the books that inspired me to write years ago. I'd LOVE if we could unlock this goal, so let's see where we can take this campaign in the next few days!

STRETCH GOAL #3: $35K... ALTERNATE COVER: VIRGIN VARIANT

If we hit this amount, all backers will be able to choose which version of the book they get: the standard cover, or this new cover by Manuel Preitano, done in the "virgin" style, which is a weird way of saying no logo or mark-up. I call this the LILITH'S SMOLDER VARIANT, because come on... she's quite smoldery.

STRETCH GOAL #4: $40K... DESTINY GIRLS! goes to print

If we hit this amount, the Destiny Girls! novel will go to print and all backers who pledged for physical rewards will receive this physical book for free.

Risks and challenges

So far, we have completed two successful Kickstarter campaigns. CLONSTERS is on track to ship rewards this fall, and DESTINY, NY VOLUME ONE was shipped to all backers on time. After receiving the shipment of books, we were able to send all 350+ packages out to backers within 8 days. Production on DESTINY, NY VOLUME TWO has already begun, so we are confident that this process will go even more smoothly than the previous volume.
