Moscow 38 is a comic project that I have been working on for the last year. It is a story about two women in New York who have been coerced into working as prostitutes by a cult. While they seem to be resigned to their fate, a mysterious shipment from Russia changes everything. As one of the women's drug addiction spirals out of control, she starts to have trouble distinguishing delusions from reality.

The story will be 40 full-color pages printed on nice paper.

Now that we've made the first stretch goal, I'd like to introduce-

-STRETCH GOAL #2-

If the kickstarter reaches $5000 before the funding period is over, I will add character epilogues for all of the main characters. These epilogues will show what the characters are up to one or two years after the end of the story. Some will be in a different tone to the story itself, almost like outtakes. I'd also like to enlist some other artists and writers to write alternate epilogues or shorts related to the story.

-STRETCH GOAL #1- *achieved!*

Since the kickstarter has reached $3500 I'm going to add at least 20 pages to the back of the book. These pages will include around 10 pages of concept art for Moscow 38. It will also include around 10 pages of drawings and illustrations by a bunch of artist friends of mine. You can see many of the ones that have been completed in the updates section.

Here are some of the awesome artists that have agreed to do Moscow 38 drawings or illustrations for the back of the book- (apologies to anyone I forgot!)

There's a huge range of styles so it should be really interesting to see what everyone comes up with!

Risks and challenges

-The risks associated with this project are very minimal. The comic is already complete and I am trying to raise enough money to print it nicely. As soon as the project is funded, I will be able to get it printed and sent out to everyone who ordered one.

-If both of my hard drives failed and so did google drive, I could lose the files before printing it. In this highly unlikely situation, I would refund backer's money.
