Thanks to our backers of our first Kickstarter campaign, we were able to meet our goal of publishing the next issues of our inaugural three series. Now we're seeking funding to continue these amazing stories and add new ones to the collection. This time we're offering backers their choice of any of our available titles from this AND past Kickstarter campaigns. You choose which comics you want from our growing variety of stories and styles. At the end of the campaign, you will be asked for your choices in the backer survey. Just click and submit. It's that easy! Check out our newest comics below.
SHEXIE MEIREN #2
Bounty hunter Shexie Meiren has sped off in search of her next target - an assassin named Ke Ci who has been hired by the Liu Mang Triad to kill Governor Zhe. As she begins her investigation, the ruthless Liu Mang puts his pieces into play in preparation for the Governor's public speech, where Ke Ci is to make his hit. Shexie has less time than she realizes to put a stop to the assassination... and get paid.
Shexie Meiren is written by Michael Kelley and drawn by Rain Art Studios.

Meanwhile, as Leng Xie investigates, she begins to wonder how much her actions could have created the situation in the first place.
Agent Sparx: Defender of Glittera is written by Michael Kelley and drawn by Rithwik G.

Risks and challenges
Three of the new comics are already completed (Shexie Meiren #2 and Tales from the Streets of Guangzhou). The artwork is completed and assembled for Um Khuzi. I'm completing the lettering now. The first 15 pages of Agent Sparx are complete, with progress well on the way to finishing the other pages. My printer has proven to be reliable and timely. The biggest potential challenge is shipping/customs. However, we haven't experienced any problems so far *knocks on wood*.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
