Steam. The Final Aether.

The purpose of this Kickstarter project is to raise money for the printing of a FULL COLOR Airship Enterprise Graphic Novel.

Your help at any level brings Airship Enterprise one step closer to a quantum reality near you.

My name is Brian Denham. I have been drawing comics professionally since 1994. I have worked on many high profile comic and TV characters like Iron Man, X-Files, Angel, Battlestar Galactica, The Six Million Dollar Man, Knight Rider, and a host of others. I am the creator, artist and writer of Airship Enterprise.

My publishing partner on this project is my friend and publisher, Dr. Joeming Dunn. Joe's brother, Ben Dunn, founded Antarctic Press in 1984. Joe took over the company a while back and invited me in as a creator. He will oversee printing and production.

FULL STEAM AHEAD! THESE ARE THE VOYAGES OF THE AIRSHIP ENTERPRISE.

Risks and challenges

I work at an art studio and comic publisher in San Antonio, Texas. The company has been in business since 1985 and we've shipped a few thousand titles over the years. We have a proven track record of delivering projects on time.

Our talented artists have shipped several Kickstarter projects ahead of schedule. We have the logistics to get books form the printer, packaged for shipping, and mailed out quickly.

While I would like to address any negative aspects of this project getting to the backers I am afraid besides an act of nature, massive shipping problems, or printer error there will not be anything getting in the way of delivering this project ahead of schedule.

Our studio members have been involved with over 7 successful Kickstarter campaigns that have raised over $134,000! We have kept in constant communication with our 3000+ Backers. We have made ourselves available to our backers 24 hours a day. We have taken calls from backers on our landline. We have a staff that has packed and shipped nearly 6000 packages since we started on Kickstarter.

Your support of our project means a lot to us. It means that you have a commitment to the arts and we have a commitment to you to deliver a product in a reasonable amount of time and a product you will be proud to own. Your support means that we are able to create more comics and art projects that you will not find anywhere else.
