THE STORY -
The project is a comic entitled “Six Gun Mage”. A “six gun” is a slang term for a revolver used primarily in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The term mage, while generally self explanatory, is generally taken to mean a wizard or user of magic of some sort.
The story of the comic revolves around the main character, “Kylie”. Kylie is a cadet at a prestigious academy in a steampunk world. The acedemy’s purpose is to raise and train “gun mages” as a sort of special forces for the ruling government which has consisted of a council of mages since the last great war. In the first chapter, Kylie is, for reasons unknown to the reader, travelling away from the academy with the prototype of an advanced weapon designed to empower the gun mages. Her first stop is the metropolis of “boiling springs”, a primarily steam powered city built atop a an anomalous region of hot springs amid a largely desert environment.
In Boiling Springs, Kylie becomes involved with a feud between rival mercenaries destined to become her companions as the series continues. We also discover the motive behind her journey and the direction her life will take in the of the series.

Risks and challenges
The challenge is to raise funds to produce the actual content, the supporting site and all the merchandise needed to make the project into a true professional endeavor. As the project must be able to stand alone as a full time job, the challenge is no small feat, but I have accomplished it using the same team once before with the comic “Misfile”.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
