When all your clients are insane necromancers, ancient vampires, wizards and occultists, it’s not unusual to feel like your days are numbered. Earl Gratz might be one of the best in the business when it comes to magical and haunted artifacts, now if only he could land a position that doesn’t involve endless layovers and constant fear for one’s own safety. Welcome to the world of INSURANCE, where the fantastic and horrific are made commonplace and mundane through bureaucracy!
We hit our goal!!!
Stretch goals are now available. We are now trying to finish the comic series in it entirety! Every backer who pledged $35 or greater & those who chose the EARLY BACKER SPECIAL will receive every stretch goal we add!
- Issue 4 expected January 2016 / Issue 5 expected no later than June 2016
- No additional shipping expenses when the final 2 issues ship.
- We will add additional character cards between now and then, and another art print or two.
- If we hit our final stretch goal, all pledges of $10 or more will receive a digital copy of issues 4 and 5 as well!
As you can see, we are excited to have the comic completely finished in 2016. We will get there with your help!!!
We began this comic about 3 years ago. Working in our free time we completed 2 issues, and right now we are working on the 3rd. This Kickstarter is to fund the printing of the 3rd issue, which is coming out no matter what this Fall. We’re planning 5 issues total for the series, and are offering a chance for backers to obtain all 3 issues we’ve made so far, along with limited edition Kickstarter only art prints and original art!
Dubbed “Hellblazer meets Office Space,” INSURANCE started as means with which to satirize the supernatural detective genre. Earl is really good at his job, but desperately wants something to change in his life. He is among the few who can see what is really going on behind the scenes of everyday existence. The places and situations where Earl's expertise is needed are the dark, dingy corners of the universe. His clients are rich and powerful cultists, kooky members of the American subculture, and even a few demigods. Earl's psychic ability means that he can observe the magical world, making him an ideal employee at his insurance firm.
Issue 3 is coming out no matter what, but it will be a lot easier on us if I don’t have to pony up the printing cost myself this time. Additionally, as the writer of INSURANCE, I would like to help out my illustrator- Mike Alvarez. He delivers quality artwork and is an absolute joy to work with. He’s been dedicated to this project since the start, and I would like to show my appreciation for his efforts by giving the portion of the reward money not spent on printing costs directly to him. Help me get my artist paid!
Risks and challenges
As is always the case with self publishing comic books, the major challenge is balancing our creative life with our everyday existence. We both work full time and have other life obligations. In supporting this Kickstarter, you are also making it possible for us to practice our craft, and you have our sincerest gratitude!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
