UPDATE: New Mother Superior concept preview!

What are the stretch goals for this beast? For issue #0, I'm intentionally not asking for much because I want to ensure that at least the minimum goal is reached, but should the minimum goal be exceeded then I've established several additional goals.  


UPDATE! EXCEEDED! $4,000 - An additional pinup will be produced and everyone who pledged at least $35 will get an 11x17" color print of it!  

UPDATE! EXCEEDED! $4,500 - EXTENDED VERSION OF ISSUE #0 (8 extra pages for a 36-page issue #0)

$7,500 -- ISSUE #1 If I can raise at least $7,500 I'll move straight into doing issue #1 and everyone who pledged at least $25 will get a digital copy! Everyone who pledged at least $55 will get a physical copy!

$12,000 -- ISSUE #2 If I can raise at least $12,000 I'll move straight into doing issue #2 and everyone who pledged at least $25 will get a digital copy! Everyone who pledged at least $55 will get a physical copy!

$16,000 -- ISSUE #3 If I can raise at least $16,000 I'll move straight into doing issue #3 and everyone who pledged at least $25 will get a digital copy! Everyone who pledged at least $55 will get a physical copy!

0,000 -- ISSUE #4 If I can raise at least $20,000 I'll move straight into doing issue #4 and everyone who pledged at least $25 will get a digital copy! Everyone who pledged at least $55 will get a physical copy! For $20,000 that means that EVERYONE who pledged at least $25 will get issues #0-4! The entire first story arc!

UPDATE #4 -- SECOND STRETCH GOAL REACHED!

The $4,500 stretch goal has been reached so issue #0 has been upgraded from 28 pages to 36 pages!

I've also reduced the prices on several reward tiers and even added a new $400 reward -- 'HELP ME WRITE A SINSATIONALS SCENE' where the pledger will plot out a 3-page scene featuring the Sinsational(s) of their choice. That 3-page scene will be added to the digital copy of issue #0 AND the pledger will receive the three original 11x17 art pages!

UPDATE #3 -- FIRST STRETCH GOAL REACHED!

The first stretch goal has been reached!

"$4,000 - An additional pinup will be produced and everyone who pledged at least $35 will get an 11x17" color print of it!"

For those that pledged less than $35 you'll be getting a high-res digital copy of the stretch goal pinup e-mailed to you along with the rest of your digital rewards!

The $4,500 stretch goal is right around the corner, ensuring that issue #0 will be extended by EIGHT PAGES to a total of 36 PAGES! 

As a bonus, the pledger who puts the campaign over the $4,500 amount will get a FREE ONE-CHARACTER, DIGITALLY COLORED COMMISSION emailed to them!

Thanks so much for the support, guys!

UPDATE #2 -- The $4,500 Stretch Goal!

We're closing in on the first stretch goal of $4000. I'm already looking ahead to the next one, so I've set a new unique reward. The pledger who puts funding over $4500 (adding 8 pages to issue #0 for 36 total pages) will receive a FREE 1-character, full-color digital commission which will be emailed to them!

UPDATE! The minimum goal has been exceeded!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who either pledged or helped get the word out about the project.

The 'free commission' has been won by the pledger who pushed the campaign over the top. I've already contacted that person so, thank you to them!

Now, all that's left is the stretch goals!

Thank you again, everyone!

What is "Sinsationals"?

Sinsationals is the story of seven extraordinary women from disparate backgrounds that find themselves united in a common goal to keep the peace in a lawless world... and to look absolutely fabulous while doing it. They live in a world where literally anything is possible. Superheroes? Robots? Dragons? Zombies? Talking cat people? Nothing is out of the ordinary because the ordinary is anything but.

The 28-page issue #0 chronicles the origins of each female protagonist as a looming alien threat plots to overtake the planet. The issue will act as the lead-in to a story arc that will see the girls slowly unite to face this common enemy, save the planet and emerge not just as a team, but a family.

In this maiden voyage for Sinsationals, the seven principal characters are shown in their "normal" lives before they are thrust into a new world where they have new roles, new responsibilities and must face new dangers, as well as new possibilities. Beautiful, skilled and deadly, the Sinsationals are a powerful group of women, each harnessing a unique subset of abilities that allow them to thrive in their day jobs as globe-trotting supermodels and uber-celebrities working for SINSATIONAL MODELS, the world's greatest modeling agency, and even moreso in their unofficial identities as superheroes. 

With their strengths, each has unique shortcomings, weaknesses and personal quirks and nuances that the evil alien would-be world overlord, Khuntorra, wants desperately to exploit. Issue #0 focuses on Khuntorra as she considers the beginnings of each member of the Sinsationals: where they came from, how they either found or developed their powers and how they can each be bested.

MAMMAZONIA is an amazon warrior who was exiled from her home island, cast out into the world of mortal men. Now a soldier without an army, she is lost until the events of the first story arc change everything. Immensely powerful and possessing an unparalleled degree of fighting prowess, she exudes grace and a proud honor.


MOTHER SUPERIOR is an ex-stripper and now highly trained assassin who associates with a mysterious guild known only as The Sisterhood. Once a mere helpless plaything for mens' desires, she survived a mob hit and found sanctuary with The Sisterhood. With them she trained and became a deadly tool for vengeance and justice! Now, she's no man's plaything.

GAMMA SEX BOMB was once just a normal woman until she drank a gamma-irradiated protein shake. She was transformed into a towering hulk of sinewy muscle and her strength was increased thousands of times over. Ever the curvaceous beauty, now her strength is both a curse and a gift.

LOLACON was a foreign exchange student living abroad when she was caught up in the middle of a zombie flash mob. In the chaos she was knocked unconscious. Awakening in the hospital--her memory wiped--she mysteriously had adopted a new hyper-athleticism that turned her into zombie killing machine. Her new abilities are an enigma, even to her.

GYNA was a state-of-the-art artificial intelligence powered by a quantum computer when she one day decided she wanted a physical body. Using the matter assemblers she was connected to, she built herself one. Now an unstoppable, walking, talking weapon, Gyna strives to slowly become more human. The next frontier? Love.

ALLIE was just a happy cat living in her jungle paradise when hunters came to claim her. They brought her back to the "civilized" world where her beauty was prized as her greatest talent. Adopted by SINSATIONAL MODELS, she became one of their top girls, but she pines for a life of danger and excitement. You can take the cat out of the wild but not the wild out of the cat.

BIG GIRL was just your typical teenager who pined to be more than she was. She wanted to mature and be desired like the more popular girls were, but she was always just the runt of the litter. Happening upon a magic lamp on a deserted beach, she made a wish. The genie granted it and made her bigger. "Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it." She did.


KHUNTORRA comes from a distant alien world. From the relative safety and anonymity of her own invisible throneship that orbits Earth, she secretly plots to conquer it. Why? Only she knows.


WHAT ARE MY GOALS FOR THE PROJECT?

To me, Sinsationals #0 is the birth of a new comic book universe. I've been creating characters since I was very little. Ever since I scrawled the Bat-symbol on pieces of furniture in my parents' house when I was six, I fell in love with the idea of superheroes. Shortly after I began creating my own. Through good times and bad in my life, that creative spark is what remained consistent but I never considered it any kind of calling. Hundreds of characters languished in my mind wanting desperately for me to give them life but I hadn't the time nor the resources to really do so. Me create my own comic? How?

I've been doing private commissions and working for independent publishers and various websites for over ten years, but with Kickstarter I see a genuine opportunity to give birth to Sinsationals by letting the consumers themselves help me bring this thing into the light.

IS SINSATIONALS AN ALL-AGES COMIC?

I'd definitely rate Sinsationals as a hard PG-13/soft R-rated comic. There won't be any explicit nudity or sex involved, but there will be harsh language, graphic violence, risque character designs and mature relationship stuff among other things.

WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW? 

Will there be more characters added eventually? Oh, yes. Will there be heaps of titillation? Yes. Will there be epic-scale action set pieces? Yes. Will there be moments of deeply human storytelling? I hope, as that is what I have planned.

Issue #0 is already partially done(samples below) and I've already plotted out the first SEVERAL story arcs which would stretch easily into 10-12 issues. However, none of that can happen if I can't get issue #0 off the ground and that's why I'm asking for your help.

WHAT WILL YOU GET FOR PLEDGING?

In exchange for your pledges I'm offering a plethora(That's a real word. I looked it up.) of rewards at varying price points. Everything, but not limited to, the following:

-digital copies of the comic
-physical copies of the comic
-prints
-posters
-sketch cards
-commissions
-all the way to an entire 220-page sketchbook filled with my original artwork!
 

SAMPLES:

Risks and challenges

Every creative effort comes with challenges and risks: unforeseen family issues, , unforeseen health issues, computer problems, .etc. Comics are a difficult thing to produce and it will take a lot of effort to make this thing a reality. However, I think I'm strongly qualified to build this thing up into what I believe it can be. I've been doing comics for myself and my clients professionally for over ten years and have become efficient at creating content for other people/companies.

Issue #0 is already partially completed and I'll continue to work on it for the duration of the Kickstarter campaign to bring it even closer to completion. Creating Sinsationals would be a dream come true and with your help I can make this labor of love happen!
