About

Big Phat Abe Lincoln #1 is the first comic in what we hope will be a series of books. Set in the 70s the story follows the adventures of Phat Abe and a bunch of dead presidents as LA cops chasing history's bad guys. With your help the possibilities are endless!

The comic is a full color 70s blacksploitation satirical mini-series that delivers historical facts with a sardonic twist and comedic flare. It’s an over the top spoof of cheesy 70s cop shows and films.

Lincoln’s foil throughout the entire series is crooked cop, Richard Nixon. And it seems, Nixon is involved with all history's bad guys! 

Franklin Roosevelt, Ulysses S. Grant, Mary Todd, William Henry Harrison, Ronnie Reagan and his monkey, Marilyn Monroe, Linda Lovelace, Burt Reynolds, and the one and only, Elvis, fill the pages in wild stories, cool cars, and absurd situations!   

The comic we are asking you to Kickstart is a 25-page first issue that is the first of a six-part Jefferson Davis/John Wilkes Booth story arc. 

We are asking for enough money to finish the pencils, inks, & colors, do the lettering, printing and shipping of the book, as well as the creation and shipping of the rewards we have offered. 

We would love to be able to fund this first installment of Big Phat Abe Lincoln, and, hopefully, be able to roll right into the next 5 issues so you can enjoy all the phat adventures we have planned for Phat Abe and the rest of the characters in this fantastic world. 

Stretch rewards

After we reach our initial goal, we have stretch goals to raise additional funds to create and print more issues!                                
We'd love to fund the full six issue arc.  To that end, here are the next funding levels:

The creative team

Mark Turner - creator and writer, is a Los Angeles based writer. Mark's scripts and films have been in numerous Film Festivals around the country including the Austin Film Festival Screenplay competition. He’s written numerous television pitches including pitches for Disney Television Animation, and Johnny Depp's company, Infinitum Nihil. Big 

Phat Abe Lincoln is Mark's first comic book. 

Wes Locher is a Florida based letterer who's lettered comics and graphic novels for publishers including Alterna Comics, Arcana Studio, Markosia Enterprises, Titan Comics, 215 Ink, Inverse Press and GrayHaven Comics, along with numerous self-published projects. 

Risks and challenges

The challenges are the unknowns with production management of the comic and the costs to publish and print the comic. As well as the time it will take to finish everything.

To help plan for that, I have sought out advisers who will guide me through the process. I plan to publish at least 6000 comics. Enough to fulfill all the backers. I have most all of the rewards created already and money in the budget for the remainder, and the shipping as well.

There may be unforeseen delays, but the project, if funded, will be completed and fulfilled.
