I love comics, you love comics, and I want to make a whole bunch of comics for you!

The goal of this Kickstarter is to raise enough money so that I am able to release my webcomic Newman, in monthly digital issues. The hope is that through the funds raised, I can make Newman a full time job, so that I am able to focus less on freelance work and create way more content for you to read and enjoy!

In the past, Newman has had to take a back seat to my other projects and free lance jobs. It was an outlet for me to tell fun stories and experiment with different art styles.

What I want to do now is release a brand new story arc of Newman in monthly digital issues of 15 pages each, and the more money we raise, the more comics you get! A one dollar donation could turn into a years worth of comics! The more people who get aboard, the more value each backer will receive!

Any dollar amount pledged will get you the complete subscription to Newman!

What do you get with that subscription?

Every digital issue of Newman in this season from 4-12 issues, depending on how much we raise

Each issue comes with a unique cover, and at the end of the season, all the issues will be compiled into one big digital book, with a new cover and cover gallery in the back.

Issues will be released on a monthly basis starting May 1st

The first issue is finished and I'm already cranking out the second. The whole story is planned out and ready to go, you just need to subscribe!

You can check out the first season of Newman at newmancomic.com

Risks and challenges

The biggest risks that come with this project are just life occasionally getting in the way. I've been making comics consistently for going on 8 years now and I just recently published my 172 page graphic novel Jackie Rose through Kickstarter. So my actual ability to produce the comics is not an issue.

I will also be working with a minimum two month buffer.

Should there be delays for any reason on a given month, the comic would be released promptly on the next month and every issue promised would still be released.
