About

 Vigi is on a mission to bring down the alien corporation, Off-World Transports, and its supposedly villainous president. When her contact on the Human homeworld goes missing all signs point to his murder at the hands of an eccentric team of hitmen and Vigi finds herself caught up in a deadly game of intrigue.

The infamous Holiday Hitman, Jack Frost, and his team of theatrical killers-for-hire are here with the specific goal of spectacularly murdering a team of bankers as they seal an important deal with Off-World.

The killers will have to navigate this amateur sleuth meddling in their business, the Off-World security attaché, all the usual unexpected circumstances, and their own personal baggage to get the job done if they want to get paid and not vaporized.

We're Sincerely DeGelder and Katie (Elliwiny) DeGelder and we write and draw Opportunities, respectively.  Also, we recently got married!  This story is a labor of love that we've wanted to share with the world for the better part of a decade.  Getting it turned into a book would be a dream come true for both of us.

Risks and challenges

This is our first time printing something as large as a book, but we're following in the footsteps of many webcomics before us and we've been researching this project for over a year now.

All of the comic pages are drawn, all that's left to do is minor edits in order to prep them all for print as well as drawing/coloring the chapter covers. We feel very confident that we can get these things done over the next month or so in order to meet the deadlines we've set for ourselves.

We are dedicated to a transparent and complete process.
