Hey all,

In January of this year I began self-publishing Revenger. I have written, drawn, and printed 5 issues thus far. Those 5 issues contain a full story which is going to be published by Bergen Street Press in the coming months. 

For the 6th installment of Revenger I am doing a one-shot story that is set many years after the first arc. Revenger is older, more scarred, and meaner. In this story she is trapped by some evil hillbilly-freedom-worshippers and she has to shoot and claw her way out.

This story ballooned to 42 pages. Longer than I anticipated, and more expensive to print than I anticipated. So I decided doing a quick and dirty Kickstarter was in order to raise the printing costs. And to ensure a timely release. 

As I write this the comic is 90% inked. I've been working furiously on this thing for the past 2 months. All that needs to happen is to wrap up inking, apply some more zip-a-tone and do the colors. 

Most of the rewards will include a digital copy of "Revenger is Trapped". This will be fulfilled by my buddies at Comixology. They have been big supporters of Revenger through their Comixology Submit program.

If you have been following me at all this year, you know that I get shit done. I currently have no day job and comics is pretty much all I think about and do. 

If you can throw me a few bones to see another Revenger comic in the world, then you rule. Please tell your comic-book reading friends about this project. It is a good jumping on point for new readers. This is a one-off story and you don't need any previous knowledge to enjoy the blood and violence.

Keep Punching, 

Chuck Forsman

Budget breakdown:

$1300 Printing

$300 Shipping

$200 processing fees

"Revenger maintains a connection to Forsman’s introspective previous works by showing how past trauma haunts the lead heroine, but it also gives him the opportunity to stage forceful fight sequences that are unlike anything he’s done before."

–Oliver Sava, AV Club

Risks and challenges

I've been self-publishing and publishing others mainly as Oily Comics for the past 4-5 years. I know that things don't always go to plan and that there are can be setbacks, but I've done this many times before. You won't be waiting a year to get this book. It'll be out by the end of November. December at the latest.

In the event of setbacks, I am pretty obsessed with problem solving and making stuff work. This book is happening, I just need you to help me.
