The Story!

Newman, a field agent for the Creature Removal Department, is struggling to get over a bad break up, and his new partner, Gwen, isn't making it any easier. Could it turn out that the girl making his life miserable is the best thing that ever happened to him?

Romance, monster slaying, apocalypse cults, and one poorly timed Dracula attack; all this and more fill Newman Volume One!

What People are Saying!

"Newman is ultimately light-hearted, though, and what makes it work is that, through it all, Gwen and Newman's relationship is an extremely functional one..... Ulrich is so wonderfully playful with his world and his characters that we're almost convinced that dating a Drow would be utterly delightful." - Lauren Davis - io9    Read the Full Review!

About the Project

The goal of this kickstarter is to produce a high quality print run of Newman Volume One. The book is over one hundred and fifty pages in full color. (For those who backed the digital kickstarter last year, all of season two has been completely re-colored!)

If you are a fan of Newman, or if you just think it looks like fun, I would ask that you please consider contributing to this kickstarter! I appreciate every dollar donated and I'm looking forward to sharing this book with you!

Never heard of Newman? You can read it online for free @ Webtoons.com! The only place to find it online!

Risks and challenges

This is my third Kickstarter and I feel great about the fulfillment side of this one! All the work on the book is done, so the only thing left is a bit of editing, and then compiling the pages for print. I intend to send the book to print as soon as the money clears my account.

There are always unexpected set backs that can occur: health issues/sickness, 3rd party delays, etc., but I feel good about what is in my control!
