Samurai! Vampires! Pure Chaos!
Samurai! Vampires! Pure Chaos!

In the dark days of feudal Japan, the survivors of a slaughtered kabuki theater troupe hire Nōnēmu, a wandering, nihilistic samurai to seek vengeance on the evil Shogun and his demonic, vampire army. 

Red Sunrise is an exclusive digital graphic novel that's 70 pages of full color, horrific carnage. In this package backers will not only receive RED SUNRISE but will have access to a plethora of unique and engaging digital surprises like digital comics, sketchbooks, audio commentaries,  podcasts, videos and will even have a chance to have their work appear inside the final package.

                      The Creative Team

J.D. Oliva is a writer & documentary filmmaker from Suburban Chicago. His writing credits include "Shunned" and the award-winning "Deluge."

Pascal Saint-Clair is an artist originally from Montreal, now residing in Chicago. He's done art on the books "Synfoma," "Gehenna," and "5 Chapters of the Universe."

Thoughts on our last Kickstarter Project!

  

 

So why take this project to Kickstarter?

Red Sunrise is kind of my comeback story. I spent two years developing a different project with an artist friend of mine before he unfortunately passed away. I took a little break from comics and it wasn’t till after my son was born that I realized I was dishonoring my friend’s memory by abandoning our dreams. I need to complete this project not only to honor my friend, but to take the next step in building my comics career. I need to make this a real career so I can provide for my family. It's time to make the dream a real job. 

Being on Kickstarter gives us a unique opportunity to build our audience and get the word out about this project while it's being finished. There just isn't another platform that creators can use to jumpstart or expand their career.

The Plan

Pascal is already hard at work on the book. The Digital Rewards, with the exception of the book, will ship in June. The book will be finished and ready for delivery by the fall and will be the last reward to go out.

 

Risks and challenges

Some of the risks and challenges with completing the campaign will be finishing the project, same as any comic project. Having ran a successful Kickstarter in the past, I've seen this challenges first hand and have a much better understanding of how to keep the process of finishing the project moving this time around.
