THE COMIC:  Quantum is a 24 year old, Jamaican-born heroine that is a honorably discharge veteran of the US Navy and a honorable member of the fabled US Naval Seal Team.  Upon her discharge, she enlisted in another service, with a non-military entity.  Her mission is to protect the technological secrets of the Klotter Institute, a technological giant based in Detroit, MI.  Her body is able to manipulate quantum energy into multiple forms.

Quantum is an ongoing, bi-monthly, full-color comic.  The first issue is due out during the first quarter of 2019.  The first 4-issues of this title assist in introducing the entire ESSENTIAL Comics universe and characters.  After the first four issues, Quantum will continue to act the high-concept in a self-contained story.  It's geared toward teen and adult audiences. Quantum is the first title to be released by ESSENTIAL Comics ... a brand new independent company homed in Raleigh, NC.

THE CREATORS: ESSENTIAL Comics is a collection of writers and artist that are dedicated to bringing fantastic stories, award-winning illustration and relentlessness passion to the the comic industry and is the brainchild of writer/creator 'Coach' Monroe.  Coach, along with Art- Editor Ken Hunt (DC Comics, Marvel Comics) have assembled a great bullpen of talent including Quantum artist Harold Edge (Molly Danger, IDW, Fanboy Best Indy Nominee), colorist Alonso Espinoza and letterer Josh Southall.

THE KICKSTARTER:  All money raised will go toward Quantum #1 production costs and to give our supporters some cool rewards.  If this campaign is successful, you'll be providing the support needed to make the first issue of Quantum a reality.  Currently we are preparing to self-distribute our books and through our new website (still under construction) and a growing number of comic shops across the country.   So please continue to support creator-owned comics and  remember that you're only charged if we make our funding goal.  

Help make Quantum become a reality and enjoy the great rewards for you.

Here are some examples of our book.

Thank you so much for the early support of our project.  We are currently working on stretch items that will be available if we past the initial requested amount.  These will be posted at the 7 days remaining point.

Risks and challenges

The Quantum title has a crew with over 25 years of experience within the comic book industry behind it. The book is currently in the final phase of production as it sits on the table of the letterer. This being a "creator-owned" book, it relies on a small group of us to do everything. If an unforeseen emergency were to arise, it might cause a delay but we are so close to production, we don't anticipate that happening. More so, we are already working on Quantum issues #2 and 3 and hey are looking just as great as #1.
