About

About Imaginary 

Final Fantasy meets Calvin & Hobbes meets The Terminator! With the world on the brink of destruction, a young boy (Tracy) with powerful, reality warping powers attempts to bring his imaginary friends to the real world in an attempt to thwart the attack of an artificial intelligence. However, instead of just his imaginary friends, he also brings almost everything from his imagination including warriors, wizards, dragons, nightmares, video game characters, and others! Now, in a world filled with dangerous robots and creatures and characters from his imagination, Tracy and his equally dangerous imaginary friends must journey to find a lost ally!

Meet the Creators

Damien C. Becton

Hello! I am a 6th grade English teacher from Sumter, South Carolina! I've been teaching middle school for 4 years and have been reading comics my entire life. I currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Esther Pimentel

Esther Pimentel is a professional, freelance artist and illustrator. She has worked on many successful projects such as Alterna Comics' IF Anthology (Littlelight Asylum, written by Julian Dominguez, 2016), Boundless (Anthology, a 5 page contribution, 2017), Monster for Hire (written by Deon Brown, 2017), and Inventor Dad (written by Brett Reistroffer, 2017).

Check out her portfolio here:

Lee Milewski

Lee Milewski is a talented freelance colorist and comic book creator. He has been a part of several successful projects, including his own (1939 and The Winter Year).

Funding

Most of the funding from the Kickstarter will be used for art production and paying the other creators (Esther Pimentel, Lee Milewski, and Krugos). The other will be used for printing and publishing and Kickstarter fees! Check out the chart below!

Kickstarter Fees: 5% (Red), Printing: 27% (Green), Art Production 68% (Blue)
Kickstarter Fees: 5% (Red), Printing: 27% (Green), Art Production 68% (Blue)

6 pages are already completed! If we're lucky enough to get this project funded, we'll complete and send out the books by December!

Thank you! We appreciate your interest and support!

Risks and challenges

I believe the biggest challenge would be the delivery date. I chose December/ January to give the team plenty of time to complete the project in a timely manner without sacrificing the products quality. Juggling the school year (I'm a teacher) and the kickstarter will definitely be a challenge that puts pressure on the estimated date as well as the artists (they are currently working on other projects - The Winter Year #2 and Mini Comic #1). Rest assured, if we're lucky enough to get this funded, the product will be completed and shipped and I'll keep you all updated regularly along the way!
