About this project

The Shadow Watchers #2

$888

47

 

 

The Shadow Watchers comic is a blend of Pulp Horror and Science Fiction. The main characters, who are more Pulp Heroes than “Super”, are thrown together to fight an ancient evil. The 1st issue begins in the year 1952. This time period creates powerful conflicts and great adversity for our heroes just by virtue of their gender and ethnicity in a far more repressive era than today.

With the 2nd issue we have an awakening for the cast of our story. The plot thickens, more villainy is revealed and we start to get a sense of where the story is going.

We are nearing completion of issue #2 of The Shadow Watchers. The book is completely penciled, half of it is inked and half of those are fully colored. We are on schedule for an October/November print run and release.

Risks and challenges

Since we won’t be relying on Diamond to distribute the second issue there shouldn’t be much in the way of obstacles. Penciling is the stage that takes the most time, with that completed the challenges are minimal and it should be mostly downhill from here.

With that being said time is a factor and life can always place bumps along the road but we are confident there is nothing that cannot be overcome and like the 1st issue's KickStarter project we will succeed.
