About

Our hero : Hatch
Our hero : Hatch

Hatch is unique. It’s as simple as that; there are no language barriers with this strip; translated words can change the mood, meaning or substance of any writing. Only ‘sound effects’ are used; there is no dialogue. All Hatch’s adventures can be enjoyed by all peoples in the universe, whatever language(s) they may understand – he’s simply a visual experience. And now, Hatch is finally here, in all his lonely ‘glory’; lost, bewildered and, yeah, amazed. ‘Hatch’, however, is not just an ordinary cartoon strip. No, no. Far from it. Hatch is, in fact, a builder, an experimenter and (occasionally) a time traveller and although he is a ‘man’ lost in time and space, his world is not without incident, not without accident and certainly not without meaning. Hatch endures in us all; struggling to come to terms with himself, his world and his universe. A universe he marvels at, embraces and is ultimately frustrated with.

I’ve kept the ‘rewards’ for ‘Hatch’ to a minimum, in an effort to offer more items of quality, to hopefully make ‘Hatch’ the centre point of the project, rather than just what one can get for making a pledge.

Here's how the Kickstarter funds will be broken down:

Printing books: Hatch is being printed by Stuart Gould in Swindon, England, and apart from being an outstanding printer, Stuart is an all round great bloke. (You can reach him at www.ukcomicscreative.co.uk).

Shipping and packaging: I will be trusting the Royal Mail for the most part to ship your comics/books/artwork to you. The Royal Mail has been around for over 500 years - so I figure they must know what they’re doing!

Excess: Any money over will be used to get issue #2 out to the public!

Risks and challenges

Hatch is ready; the artwork for the comic and booklet is complete, the printer is ready and so there will no delays once the campaign is over! All I need now is YOUR help!
