Wretches #1 & 2 are two 24 page comic books that are a part of a 5 issue mini-series. I have personally funded the preview pages, covers and pinups to show how dedicated myself and the team are to telling this story and delivering it in the best quality possible. With this Kickstarter we're looking to fund the completion of the artwork, a print run, and the creation, packaging & shipping of the rewards to our backers.
Wretches #1 was successfully funded earlier this year and brought to life by 176 BACKERS! This issue is also available with the Kickstarter. Our rag-tag team was amazed by the turn out and look forward to telling you all the rest of Shea and Sean's story.
LET'S RECAP W/ AN ISSUE 1 PREVIEW!
ISSUE 2 PREVIEW
In Wretches #2 we're going to pick up right where we left off in the first issue. Unfortunately, for Shea and Sean, this doesn't bode too well.
After being taken by a group of Bots during an ambush, Sean finds himself in an awful position. Beaten and tortured, he waits for his one chance to escape. And Shea, having no clue if her brother is even alive, is going to do whatever it takes to track him down, before it's too late.
With this issue we're also going to bring in new characters who will play major roles in the series, and take you to new planets, further unveiling the universe and it's inhabitants.
BEHIND THE SCENES
Brother and sister duo, Shea and Sean, have spent their youth struggling to survive, alone in an alien city, far from the now lifeless planet they’d once called home. Now, all grown up, they make their way by capturing other beings for the promise of reward – specializing in hunting the robots they’d once shared their home planet with.
Still suffering emotionally from the loss of everything they’d ever known and loved, Shea and Sean have nothing else in the universe but each other. Once one of them is kidnapped, the other will tear the entire galaxy apart until they are finally reunited.

Risks and challenges
This is our second Kickstarter campaign as a team and we feel like we've gotten the rookie mistakes out of the way during our first go at it.
However, unlike the first campaign, the bulk of the artwork is yet to be done here. Once we're funded it's only a waiting game while those pages get completed. While most of the collaborators are working on other projects, come December we are all ready to concentrate on bringing Wretches #2 to life.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
