  Hi there. My name is Dallas Casavant and I'm the Director of Golden Ticket Comics and the writer of the 4 issue, 128 page motion/comic mini-series, "The V-Card." The log-line of the story would be something like, "Will a Vampire's 380 year dry spell come to an end, with a bite to the neck or a stake to the heart, once The Great Vampire Killer's daughter discovers what her boyfriend really is?"

  "You think you could come up with a better idea for a story?" an ex-girlfriend said, with contempt, after I (once again) complained about the plot holes, weak characters and complete lack of humor in the movie we just watched. Her contempt turned into disgust, when I said that I could write something better. On the spot, I made up an idea and told it to her. She looked confused. "Actually," she reluctantly admitted, "that's not bad." I was confused, too. It wasn't that bad. Month's went by and I still couldn't get the idea out of my head. A new character here. A plot twist there. Eventually, I couldn't fight it. I had to turn it into a comic.

  A couple of years later, with the final script in my hand, I walked by the most beautiful girl in the world and said to her, "Excuse me. This sounds ridiculous, but I just finished the final script for a romantic-comedy comic about a 380 year-old vampire virgin...could I use your likeness for one of the characters?" She said yes. We started dating. We bought a house. We got engaged. We got three dogs. Her name was Talia.

  "The V-Card" was created and written by Dallas Casavant. Pencils, inks and colors are by Nick Johnson, letters by Sean Rinehart and animation by Tamara Arres. The comic features G.I. Joe creator Larry Hama, and "SiriusXM Top Comic Finalist" (and "Kathleen McGee is a Hot Mess" podcaster)  stand-up comedian, Kathleen McGee.

  Issues 1 and 2 are complete and I am looking to raise $8000 to complete the remaining issues. and animation. Here's some sample pages from issue 1!

Risks and challenges

Question- "How did you get an artist as great as Nick Johnson to illustrate the first two issues of your mini-series for free?!"
Answer- Very simple. I didn't! I treated him like the professional that he is, and paid him like one. ...It was either that or split the profits of this comic 50/50 with him. Let's see...$100,000,000 divided by 2...uh, yeah, I think I'll just pay him by the page!!!
But seriously, free artists aren't great, and great artists aren't free. Knowing this I started saving the money for this project years ago and I've already paid Nick for the first two issues, with the remaining money in my bank, waiting for him. So there is no risk to you, the backer.
Canada's largest print company, Transcontinental Printing (tctranscontinental.com) will be responsible for printing "The V-Card," They already have my files for the first two issues and are just waiting to find out how many issues need to be printed, And, quite frankly, so am I.
I will, personally, be handling the fulfillment duties and shipping the orders/rewards to our backers. so you have nothing to worry about.
