Ashes, Issue 1

As the agent of death for the living, and a jaded government worker in the hereafter, Grimm doesn't have many friends.  What he does have is the best job in existence.  The satisfaction of watching a dumb ass bet his buddies he can stop a lawn mower with his tongue, collecting his soul, then introducing him to an unimpressive eternity, is priceless.  So when Grimm's career is cut short by human ingenuity and internal transfers, he is faced with an eternity of uncertainty.  

For readers ages 16 and up.

Why We Are Raising Funds

Chris and I are raising funds to help with printing costs, promotional materials, and putting together packages for possible resellers and distributors.  Ultimately, our goal is to find comic publishers that can pick up one of our titles and release it to larger markets.

Risks and challenges

A possible challenge that we may face during project is the printing. We rely on outside printers and at times can result in unexpected hurdles. We have found a printer we feel is reliable and consistent and are confident they will deliver the same quality product as "Gears,"

"Ashes" issue one is complete and ready to print!

    Honestly, a person who reaches the "You have too much disposable income," donor level, simply is the greatest human of all-time. Of course you will receive all that has been mentioned in the other donor levels, but it's going to get much deeper than that. If you can get yourself to the Southern Tier of NY, you will experience the Chris and Bill fantasy tour. We will begin by picking you up and taking you to your hotel for your complimentary one night on us. After dropping off your bags and presenting you with a basket of local beers, we will take you on a local tour of the area. Including sites like the Corning Museum of Glass, the Soaring Museum, and The Elks Lodge where Chris and I began our comic endeavors. We will then enjoy a nice sit down dinner at one of the local eateries, and enjoy a night of debauchery. At the end of the night Chris and I will tuck you into your bed and read "Ashes" to you. In the morning we will meet you with a complimentary Dunkin Donuts coffee up to size medium, and bid you adieu. This level of donation will also guarantee that your character appearing in one of our Zero comics becomes a permanent addition.
