Immortal opposites, Nox and Luci harvest souls for the realms of dark and light, discover hot angel sex, and unleash the apocalypse.

Every great project starts with a great idea. The idea for Soulharvest: The Adventures of Nox and Luci grew out of a series of short stories written by Allan and adapted to a screenplay by Cheryl. While setting up the storyboard we got the idea that it would translate to an intriguing graphic novel. Cheryl met with Joe Garcia, a professional illustrator in the classic style with whom she’d worked in the publishing industry, and pitched the project to him. Joe was as intrigued and excited about it as we were so he agreed to come on board and we began to flesh out visually the characters and plot points.

The story chronicles the meeting and subsequent adventures of Nox DeVille and Luci Angelino, angels from opposite sides of the tracks who have been on the earth since the dawn of humankind and who have the same mission: to harvest souls for their own side, the dark or the light. What they don't know is that they have been brought together by an ultimate higher power, what humans understand as ‘God’, to fulfill the end-of-days prophesies written across the world’s ancient religious literature, and catalyze the apocalypse. 

The screenplay, upon which this project is based, is where Nox and Luci first meet in an elevator as they are both going to an interview with Mr. Singh, an attorney representing billionaire Trevor Barrett. Singh hires them both and expects them to work together to solve the mystery of Barrett’s rapidly dying racehorses. Barrett, while a tough and fabulously successful businessman, is also highly superstitious and suspects that there may be other-worldly foul play. Singh is directed to hire both a regular investigator and a paranormal expert.

In his current guise, Nox owns a successful investigation and security firm in Los Angeles. Luci has recently popped up as the host of a cable show on the paranormal and has worked as a consultant on various investigations that appear to have paranormal elements. Although antagonistic towards one another at first, they soon discover the other's true nature and, somewhat counter-intuitively, they decide to work together to complete the assignment and solve the mystery, letting the chips fall where they may while knowing full well that there awaits a human soul to harvest along the way. The teleplay, and this first volume of the graphic novel, ends with Nox and Luci successfully solving the mystery and harvesting a soul, although we’re not going to tell you who wins round one! They return to Los Angeles and decide to continue working together.

If we meet our funding goal, we will be able to print the first book, fulfill our pledge rewards, and we hope you agree that our idea is a great one and that you decide to pledge to our project.

What Do I Get?

A picture really is worth a thousand words so here are images of the rewards at different pledge levels. Check the sidebar descriptions too!

Why Kickstarter?

We’ve come a long way on our own – writing the stories, creating the storyboards, roughing out the panels and inking part of the first book. Our funding goal isn’t arbitrary. We’ve calculated what we need to finish the inking and painting of the panels, the printing and shipping of 1,000 finished books, the cost of reward swag, and Kickstarter’s percentage to arrive at the smallest possible monetary goal. If we exceed it, so much the better because we haven’t allotted any funds to ourselves. Since we both pay the bills through our various creative pursuits, a little extra money helps keep our lights on! If we REALLY exceed it then we’ll begin the next phase of the project - Volume II.

Can I increase my pledge once it’s made?

YES! Once you donate to our campaign, you absolutely can increase your pledge and upgrade your reward package. To do this, sign in to www.Kickstarter.com, and visit our campaign page.Then, click on the blue “Manage Your Donation” button. Once there, you can enter a new amount, or choose a new incentive level.

How do I contact you?

You can contact us through Kickstarter, facebook or email at cheryl_stanfield@sbcglobal.net.

If I donate, when can I redeem the reward?

Rewards will be created only if our funding goals are met. Digital downloads will be available as soon as that part of the project is completed - inking for the coloring book and painting for the completed novel. We’ve estimated the delivery for each type of incentive – look at the incentives for specifics. We don’t anticipate delays but if there are any unforeseen fulfillment problems we will communicate with you in advance and update you on the new delivery estimate. We’ve really worked hard to supply accurate and reasonable reward delivery information.

If the graphic novel is funded, when will the printed books be ready?

We anticipate it will be printed and ready for shipping to you by September, 2013. There is a possibility that it will be ready earlier – we’ll keep you posted.

What else can I do to help?

Please spread the word! Tell your friends, families and co-workers about our project and Kickstarter! There are lots of ways to stay current with our project. In addition to checking our Kickstarter page for updates you can like us on facebook, follow us on Twitter, and bookmark our website www.noxandluci.com.

What happens if we don’t reach our goal?

If our goal isn’t met before the deadline then you are not charged for your pledge, we don’t send out rewards, and everybody wears a sad face. But even if we don’t succeed on Kickstarter, we believe in our project and we’ll still be out there swinging away, trying to hit this thing out of the park. You can continue to follow our efforts on facebook and the website.

                             
                                              

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

One possible problem that we could face would be related to printing of the graphic novels. We have received several printing estimates for the books so that there is a back-up in place should our printer of choice not be able to deliver. Luckily, we're working with some reliable printers with whom we've worked in the past so we feel pretty confident about being able to ship the books on time.

The project is well underway but not completed. Many of the panels need to be inked and colorized. We anticipate that there will be about 3 months of work between the funding and the time we supply pdf files to the printer. If we print offshore there is about a 2 month turn around. This should bring us well within the quoted delivery month of September 2013.
