What in the hell is NSGA?

The Not So Golden Age is the story of a trailer park full of washed up, dysfunctional superheroes. They were once the premier heroes of their generation, but they have been unused for so long that they have been relegated to the dreaded public domain. Now they reside in a trailer park outside of Reno, Nevada.

Created, Illustrated, Colored, and Lettered by Joseph Freistuhler and scripted by Phil Buck, you can read both the first and second issues at www.notsogolden.com! This Kickstarter will fund a printed edition of the second issue in all of its golden age awesomeness! 

In addition to the 22 page main story from the web-comic, this print edition will include a bonus 5 page story and 5 pages of exclusive back matter! For those who are mathematically challenged, that's a total 32 interior pages of the best comic you will ever read!

(Disclaimer: This comic may not actually be the best comic you will ever read. However, it is the best comic book my mother will ever read!)

Fake Testimonials

"It was good, but it could have used more poop jokes." - George Lucas, movie director and Jar Jar Binks enthusiast.

"This comic is more fun than a Russian pee-pee party!" - Donald Trump, somehow the $^?@#&! President of the United States.

"Jesus, what in the hell took him so long to finish this thing?" - God, creator of everything and platypus enthusiast.

The Characters of NSGA

The trailer park residents in The Not So Golden Age are actual golden age super heroes! They have all been unused for so long that they are now in the public domain, thus why they live in a trailer park! Included in the back matter will be appropriate credit to the creators of these heroes and background information on the comics they originally appeared in.

(Disclaimer: My mother will probably never read this comic book.)

Enough Jibber-Jabber! What are the $^?@#&! rewards?

As if this incredible 32 page comic wasn't enough, there are three character mini prints, a Kickstarter exclusive t-shirt, and a 5 inch resin Blue Bolt statue! And that's just for starters! If this Kickstarter hits its funding goal I have some awesome stretch goals planned as well that will improve the rewards!

Stretch Goals!

$1,200 - If we manage to hit this funding target, every level $10 and up will get a new post card from The Golden Age trailer park! - STRETCH GOAL UNLOCKED!

$1,500 - If we manage to hit this funding target the cover of the comic will get an upgrade to a heavier, better quality card stock! - STRETCH GOAL UNLOCKED!

$2,000 - If we manage to hit this funding target, I will add another four pages of content to the book! From 32 interior pages to 36 interior pages!  - STRETCH GOAL UNLOCKED!

$2,500 - If we manage to hit this funding target, the first Issue of NSGA will get a second printing with an new alternate cover and everyone in a $15 or more tier will get a copy! - STRETCH GOAL UNLOCKED!

Risks and challenges

I have now run several successful Kickstarters and have been a part of others. I will apply everything I have learned over the years to this funding campaign. By the time funding is completed, this book will be finished and ready to send off to the printers. All fund raised from this kickstarter will go right into producing this book.
