 Alex Priest #5 is a 44 page double-sized issue that brings the end to our current arc - and to one of our characters.

In a world where vampires and demon ilk are very, very real, two agencies work to keep the world safe from the forces of darkness. Demon Eradication And Denial (DEAD LLC) is a corporate entity that charges itself with the training and employment of demon slayers – specialists in combating magical beings. Living Corpses that Bite (LC & B) is a tax exempt public entity that relies on time proven traditions to keep humanity safe from vampires. When hunting evil evolved into blue collar work, the evil had to evolve.

Recent evidence suggests vampires have learned to use magic, meaning they’re more than just a nightly threat. For the first time since their inception, DEAD LLC and LC & B will have to join forces. Which means, for the first time since their bitter break up, Alexandra Priest and Janelle Garcia will have to face one another – or risk an apocalypse. No pressure.

For those of you who've been following our adventure for nearly three years, this is what you've been waiting for. Our current arc is coming to a close - the story is coming to an end. We're pulling no punches and leaving no loose ends. 

For those of you joining us for the first time, now is the BEST time to jump in. We're Kickstarting issue five, but the entire series is available. Read the entire series from start to finish with our catch up tier, and see what people have been talking about.

Alex Priest started with a Kickstarter event (Issue One was a make/100 campaign), and Alex Priest is going to end with a Kickstarter event. One of the characters above is going to die, and you - the backer - get to help decide who it'll be. Every reward tier is themed for either heroes or villains. This not only acts as a vote for who dies, but this will also determine the rewards you receive. Check out all the rewards below!

Reward Tiers

Curious as to where all the money is going? Roughly half of it is going to the talented artists that bring the comic to life - paying for interior art, lettering, and graphic design. A quarter of the funds are allocated to printing comics and shipping rewards. The rest covers production of other rewards (pins and trading cards), shipping materials (rigid mailers), and Kickstarter fees.

Risks and challenges

Lucky number 13.

Arledge Comics has successfully funded twelve of our past twelve Kickstarters. We have a strong fulfillment history (right now we only have one campaign waiting fulfillment) and well established relationships with vendors. There are always some risks in fulfillment being delayed - production on pins can run long, shipping can be delayed, ect - but we're very familiar with the risks and challenges of Kickstarter fulfillment and are committed to delivering a quality product in a reasonable amount of time.
