We’re excited to be bringing this to you hot on the heels of the release of the first chapter. The first volume is already available online, and we’ll be offering a print edition again as well.

Rewards!

Stretch Reward - Digital Comic Pack

We're very lucky to have some cool creators supporting us! We're happy to announce that well be offering a formidable pack of digital comics to everybody that pledges over $5 if we hit a total of $4000 in funding! We're very excited to be offering stretch rewards for our digital backers. All comics will be delivered as DRM Free PDFs. The pack includes...

Orphans #1-5by Eric Palicki, Branko Jovanovic, and Jesse HeagstaAlexis Quinn doesn’t believe that the future needs to be built on dead bodies, so he’s positioned himself as a uniquely 21st century Robin Hood, taking dangerous technology out of the hands of killers and redistributing it where it will do the most good. Or, at least, where he believes it will do the most good.

Vreckless Vrestlers #0-5
by Łukasz Kowalczuk

...a professional, interdimensional wrestling league with a single obliging rule: no rules apply! It’s also a comic series presenting fight coverage in strips.

Tart vol. 1by Kevin Joseph and Ludovic Salle
Wherever, and whenever, she is, Tart must find a demon threatening the timestream and stop them from altering the history of the world. A time-traveling, demon-hunting, girl next door, Tart is Buffy meets Doctor Who meets Sandman.

Of Stone #1
by D A Bishop
Who are you if you have lost everything?

Ichabod Jones: Monster Hunter #1
by Russell Nohelty and Renzo Podesta

An insane and deranged mental patient escapes from a maximum-security asylum to rid the world of monsters with the help of the omniscient, impatient, and authoritative voice in his head.

Concrete Martians #1-2
by Mitch Cook and Keith Grachow

The tiny lumber town of Concrete, Washington becomes the epicenter of Martian Invasion Hysteria after the power and phones go out right when the Martians attack in the famous Orson Wells radio play.

 Stretch Reward - Becka Kinzie pinup

At a total of $4250 we'll send all backers that pledged at a level that involves shipping this limited Becka Kinzie print, colored by Ester Salguero. This is the original art from the soundtrack cover.

All backers will receive a digital download of the 7 track original soundtrack to Polybius Dreams. You can preview a couple of the tracks by clicking the image below.

More original art!

 We're offering some of the original art we had from the last campaign again, and the tattoo art as well! (Please note that the Drew Moss art is no longer available. I'll update the image soon.)

 

 

Stretch Rewards!

Yes, we have some stretch rewards planned! including but not limited to...

  • The Original Soundtrack! (Yes, we have original music to go with the comic.)
  • More prints!
  • More original art!
  • Buttons and other swag!
  • Digital comics!

Risks and challenges

We're extremely proud of this book, and are delighted with the response we've seen so far, but unfortunately our base asking price of $3500 is just barely enough to keep this project going. $3500 will get the rest of the art completed, but I'll still have to cover shipping and printing expenses on my own. We'll need about $5000 to comfortably cover everything, and anything we make beyond that will go to getting the next chapter completed.

It's very important to get the word out. I'll be online all month promoting the campaign, so please be in touch. If you can share our campaign, post a blog about it, write a review for the first issue, or just tell your friends, we would greatly appreciate it!

And if you do write for a website or keep a blog, be in touch and I can send you a review copy of the first chapter. Thanks!
