So... we know what you’re all thinking: “Why can’t we just read the comic for free on your website?” Answer: Yes, you can... one page at a time, weeks apart. But! Think of how cool you will look with the first edition sitting on your coffee table, or-- better yet-- with a hand-engraved, limited-edition engraving of our robotic hero hanging on your wall above the coffee table. The money from this Kickstarter will pay for the printing and shipping costs. If we reach our goal we’ll have 1000 printed copies, our goal being to sell them at local comic book stores in the Lancaster area. The more comics we sell, the closer we get to quitting our day jobs-- which means you guys get more comics! Seriously though, if you're a fan of independent comics, if you're a champion of Avant-garde art projects, or if you simply have a soft spot in your heart for Civil War-era robots with inexplicable talking Ray Guns... please consider supporting our vision in any way you can.

Risks and challenges

The artwork is done, and all of the pages are formatted and finished. We shouldn't have any trouble, apart from the scanning process and working with the printing company. We all know how that can go. I'll also have to do the custom engraving, which will take a lot of time, but it will be worth it!
