BRIGADE UPGRADE! SUPER STRETCH!
We are close to UNLOCKING our key SUPREME LEVEL stretch goal of 30k and enabling FOIL EMBOSSED on every comic to all the pledges! Thank you for making this happen!
The LAST STRETCH GOAL of 35k is will provide the OVER-SIZED HARD COVER previously at the 40k level. I've talked to enough printers that I can make this happen but I'll need the extra 5k kick. So let's see if we can stretch one last time!
EXTREME LEVEL - Stretch Goal #3 - $35,000 level - Exclusive DELUXE BRIGADE OVER-SIZED HARDCOVER! I love hardcovers and I want this one to be over-sized, bigger than the standard issue hard covers. If you have pledged for the hardcover edition, it will AUTOMATICALLY be Super-sized AT NO EXTRA COST. But in order to make that a reality, we have to super-size our goal and reach this stretch initiative!
Final Week Upgrades Galore! Everyone at the $25 , $30, $50 and $100 levels! Signed Marvel comics at the $25 level, Signed Deadpool comics at $30 and multiple Marvel and Deadpool comics at $50 and above.
Everyone at the $25 reward level receives an additional Extreme comic signed by Rob Liefeld. The $30 pledges and above will receive ONE signed Deadpool comic and 2 signed Deadpool comics to everyone at the $50 levels and above! Keep checking back for upgrades and new rewards!
Check out the new Portrait level as well as the Extreme Shopping Spree level and others I've added to the initiative in the final week. And for every pledge of $50 and above I'm adding TWO SIGNED COPIES of DEADPOOL CORPS. to your reward platform. Deadpool is exploding across all platforms and it is the most requested character for me to sign copies of, two signed copies of Deadpool Corp. will add even more value to your reward package! The manage your pledge button allows you to add reward levels.
Thanks for carrying this campaign, there is no way I could have accomplished any of this without YOU!
SUPREME LEVEL! - JUST ADDED! New incentive that if we hit $30,000 then every single comic that BACKERS and PLEDGES receive will come with a FOIL STAMPED BRIGADE LOGO! Yes, EVERY COPY! Shiny is always better, at least in my house and this will cement YOUR comics that YOU created via this pledge with a signature FOIL LOGO. We are $5000 away from every NEW BRIGADE comic including ALL VARIANTS to come with a snazzy FOIL LOGO UPGRADE! I've priced these out and this is completely doable given the stretch number! So, we hit $30,000 in pledges then everyone at every level wins! Each and every one of you that have pledged $50 and above will also receive a FREE EXTREME SKETCHBOOK that features tons of new designs by Rob Liefeld and more Extreme artists illustrating new looks and concepts for BRIGADE and beyond. EXCLUSIVE TO EVERYONE who has contributed $50 and above towards the FREE BRIGADE initiative. We hit $30,000 in pledges and this sketchbook is yours for free available only through Kickstarter and no where else! Engage anyone who is skeptical and on the fence! Help us reach as many people with these comics as possible!

BRIGADE FOR FREE! Stretch Goals!
We have reached the Stretch Goals Phase of FREE BRIGADE!
Where does the money go?
100% of the funding is going to PRINTING the comic and the hardcover. My personal goal is to produce at least 100,000 copies of BRIGADE #1 or 50,000 each of issues #1 and #2. That is the purpose of this Kickstarter. I draw every day wether I'm paid or not, it's what I do, but printing comics and giving them away for FREE must be budgeted and accounted for.
Thank you to everyone who has supported and pledged to get us funded. What does this mean? It means I can provide 50,000 FREE BRIGADE copies to fans and retailers! I would like to increase that number and expand the amount of FREE BRIGADE comic books! With that in mind I've created fun, creative Stretch Goals incentives to reach the next stage!
BRIGADE and its creator Rob Liefeld ( Deadpool, Cable, X-Force ) are returning to comics and we want everyone to get a FREE copy of the re-imagined Brigade! Brigade launched in the summer of 1992 and was one of the most popular books at Image Comics. The book featured a colorful cast of characters, Battlestone, Coldsnap, Lethal, Seahawk, Thermal, Stasis and Roman united against the forces of evil. The cast and concept of Brigade have been radically updated and re-imagined and I'd like everyone to get a copy for free! I can only do this with your support and commitments on Kickstarter. Last year, Top Cow productions successfully re-launched Cyber Force with this Free Initiative, inspiring this
By funding this Free Initiative you are helping provide Free copies of Brigade to comic stores in the U.S. and Canada as well as Free digital downloads of Brigade. The more money raised, the more FREE copies and issues we can produce. A FREE comic breaks through all barriers and crosses all ages, a free comic provides a risk-free experience that can create a doorway into a new world of imagination and wonder. Brigade with its fresh, bold direction and characters will provide a dynamic comic book experience for readers old and new.
WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
The premise behind the new Brigade is that all time and space is under constant attack by a multitude of threats each attempting to alter the course of human history. A Brigade of heroes is assembled by John Stone aka Battlestone who commands a diverse unit of heroes uniquely qualified to defend humanity and preserve the fragile order of things. By definition, "A Brigade is a major tactical military formation that is typically composed of up to three to six battalions". The first of many TIME-BOMB'S has been detonated and the fabric of many realities has begun to crater and change.
Battlestone has gone to great lengths to recruit a dynamic new team to facilitate the variety of threats that his units will encounter in defense of humanity. A powerful nemesis known as IMPERATOR has emerged as a force of cataclysmic terror and devastation, although his true identity, while suspect is not confirmed.
KNIGHTMARE! CYBRID! LETHAL! FREE AGENT! SOLDIER! KABOOM! SHOGUN! are but a few of the vast and diverse cast that assembles to combat a myriad of threats against the fabric of our reality.
Risks and challenges
The amount of available FREE Brigade issues will be based on the results of this kickstarter campaign. The current pledge amount assures that the first two Brigade issues will be available free. Additional issues will be added as funds are appropriated.
Fulfillment will be finalized once all available products are received from the printer. We will send notifications after receiving the books and then an additional notice will follow when individual books are being shipped.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
