UPDATE 2-26-2014
Second stretch goal to run concurrent with the $8000 one!
If we hit 300 backers at the $8 or above level, I will unleash another bonus! (It will be revealed when we hit 250 backers) 

UPDATE 2-23-2014
FIRST STRETCH GOAL!!!!!!!!!
Seeing as we're $700 away from the goal I wanted to share the first stretch goal. If we hit $8000 I will add a full chapter to the book. (Approx. 20-24 pages) I know that's more work for me, but it's worth it for you, the fans and supporters!


Welcome to the world of Under Where?: a fun heroes tale featuring the most super array of heroes and villains and the underwear that they wear!

What is Under Where?
Under Where?
is a new, all-ages graphic novel that centers around two, young, super-powered heroes from two warring (feuding) families.  

Their family rivalry started years earlier when the two heads of their houses, Whip Wilson Sr. and Turner Topps, had a falling-out over the classic joke: What's that under there? Under Where? Just made you say underwear! The conflict solidified when each founded his own crime fighting enterprise in Jewel City. Wilson firmly favored the brash theory of underwear-over-tights, but Topps modestly believed underwear belonged under the pants. The two never came to fisticuffs, but their dispute over undergarments was widely known.

Our story begins when their children, Whip Wilson Jr. and Tulip Topps, return from school in their early 20s, ready to take up the mantle as primary crime fighters of their super families. The two, now grown, meet in a fluke kidnapping and are smitten with each other, only to realize that they are meant to be enemies, or at the very least, not like each other.

Under Where? follows the two budding heroes as they strive to make their own mark on Jewel City. As champions-for-good, they battle a laundry list of villains and their dastardly plans, while simultaneously competing with each other as well as a slew of other heroes who call Jewel City their home. And then there is the little problem of their burgeoning romance. How do they reconcile their personal feelings, their professional duties, and the wishes of their families, all the while living heroic lives on the edge?!

Hold on to your knickers, underwear-wearing readers, as this, the first book of Under Where? launches you into the battle of good-versus-evil and forces you to make the choice: Over or Under?!

Who is this book for?
This book is for people who want to have fun reading a story in which heroes of all ages battle against evil and negative stereotypes while embracing the tropes and traditions that have made superhero comics so appealing to people both young and old for decades!

I want to grab hold of the goofy, snuggle up with the absurd, roll my eyes at the silly, and have a good time reading a book in which heroes run fast, fly high, and shoot lasers out of their eyes all in various tight-fitting outfits!

Is this a floppy (single comic) or a graphic novel? 
The simple answer: it’s a graphic novel. I want to deliver to you a great story in its entirety.

However, in a fun way, it's also both! Traditionally, graphic novels are comprised of multiple issues that were previously released as single-comic floppies. While I’ve never printed or published these sections individually, the graphic novel will read like a collection of individual comics.

Don't worry! The book is a self-contained story. It will be approximately 100-120 pages in length and will be a 6" x 9" format soft cover book.

When you're all done, I hope you crave more just like I do. And I have A LOT more stories to tell in this world. I want to follow Whip Wilson Jr., Tulip Topps, and many others as they live their lives and make bold choices!

Join me as we ask the pivotal question in comic-bookdom. Underwear: Over or Under?!

Risks and challenges

Making comics can be daunting but this will be my 4th Kickstarter and 2 of my earlier ones were successfully funded (and then delivered to backers in a timely fashion). Life happens but I am building what I believe is proper timeline and a reasonable product that I can deliver by the date I've chosen. As always, fingers crossed that the schedule remains intact. I feel confident and I hope the idea sounds like a reasonable book to support! Thanks!
