What started off as a comic between two friends has become a full graphic novel nurtured by an entire studio. Pigtail Studio is proud to present Ponzi: Volume 1 in all its printed glory, and we need your help to make our dream a reality.
What is Ponzi?
It starts with a broadcast that reaches worldwide recognition. In a world of advanced technology, anything with a screen gets pirated for a cryptic message that will ring in the ears of all who listen.
Would you like to join... the Neosin?
All gamers are revered as idols, and as soon as this message is heard, anyone who has ever had a competitive cell in their body, clamors for more. Even though they don't know exactly what they're getting themselves into.
Three friends seek out the event, and soon they get in way over their heads. Faced with eccentric rivals, ever looming judges, and a bloodthirsty crowd they are going to have to stand their ground or fall apart.
What is this Kickstarter For?
This Kickstarter will help Ponzi in 2 ways. First, we need enough money to help fund our first printing of 500 books. Our goal is to cover at least half of the cost with Kickstarter, anymore would be a dream come true. All the money earned will go to publishing Ponzi Volume 1, and to help with shipping and production costs for the reward. If we reach far over our goal, we will put that towards Ponzi Volume 2, which is already in the works! The number two way that Kickstarter can help Ponzi is by reaching out to a wider audience for more readers. We have many stories for Ponzi planned, and without the support of our readers, we wouldn't be able to make it happen.
About the Video & Rewards
Being that Pigtail Studio is made up of cartoonists and animators, we banded together and collaborated on bringing the first few pages of Ponzi to life. With original music and a little voice acting, we hope you all enjoy our little message. Please note that the wording of the final reward was changed after the video was made. For the final reward we will be making a large poster size print featuring artwork from the upcoming Ponzi Volume 2. As of now there is no sample image to show. We assure that it will amaze and astound. There will only be a limit of 1 since we are framing it to give away to one backer who has pledged $100 or more. For the chibi portraits, you can choose yourself or a friend/character, as long as proper reference is provided. For that we will be communicating with our backers a lot.
