Update #3--Reviews!

The first issue has seen it's way into the hands of a few reviewers, and the response has been outstanding.

Lonnie Nadler of Bloody-Disgusting said that "Reincar(Nate) is a gripping sci-fi crime story that’s got it all. This is a strong first issue, with great characterization, and a unique, slightly eerie, twist on traditional neo-noir. After finishing the issue, it left so much unanswered, so much intrigue, that I instantly wanted more. Moreci and Burns have something special here, and I can’t wait to read the rest."

The Outhouser said "Reincar(Nate) is a great independent comic which holds its own against peers such as Criminal, Who is Jake Ellis, and Chew. It's a perfect blend of gritty crime drama and the surreal."

Multiversity said "This project is very well crafted with fitting, atmospheric art from Burns, and by the last page it had its hooks in me big time. It's well deserving of a contribution if you're into high quality crime comics with unique high concepts."

And Comic Related said, "Having seen an extended look at the story, Burns' artwork, Beckett's colors, and even Campbell's unnoticeable letters that let the words flow naturally through and around the story, I can say that I'm anxiously waiting for this story to come."

What's this all about?

Reincar(Nate) is a 102-page, full-color graphic novel that tells the story of Nate McCoy, a well-meaning, down on his luck P.I. who has a special ability--he can see and interact with past versions of himself. The people he reincarnated from. With the help of Jameson (a Wild West lawman) and Alan (a 1960s-era hitman), Nate works to solve his latest case, one that digs straight to the heart of the city's criminal underworld.

If you're a fan of stylized, character-driven noir in the vein of Chew or Terriers, you'll find a lot to like in Reincar(Nate).

And you are...

I'm Michael Moreci, writer and co-creator of Reincar(Nate)! You may be familiar with my series Hoax Hunters from Image Comics.

Why Kickstarter?


Work on Reincar(Nate) has been a labor of love for everyone involved. Keith Burns (the book's artist) and I began this project over two years ago and are absolutely thrilled to be nearing completion. The book will be finished this summer (likely in June) and will be ready to ship soon after. We're fortunate to have a supportive publisher in Viper Comics (Dead @ 17, The Middleman) who will be releasing the book digitally to coincide with our print release. Even with Reincar(Nate) being widely available on digital platforms, Keith and I believe so much in the book that we want to see it in print, hence the Kickstarter drive.

Money raised will go to printing the book, shipping it, and funding the creative team--which includes Chris Beckett on colors and Jim Campbell handing letter duties--while they focus on wrapping the book up to the best of their abilities. No one is getting rich; it's just enough to pay some bills and allow for the freedom to get the book done.

What do I get?

Anything above the $5 digital level will score you a complete graphic novel--this isn't a volume in a series or something that will be delivered in installments. You get a full story, start to finish. And, there's lots of cool incentives, from the behind-the-scenes digital packet to an opportunity to actually be illustrated in the book. You can star in a comic!

For an extended look at Reincar(Nate), check out this nine-page preview:

When will the book ship?

Our ambition is to have the book debut at San Diego Comic Con, but that's still to be determined. Either way, the book will ship in August!

Please add an extra $5 for all international orders.

Thank you for your support and for in helping to make Reincar(Nate) possible!
