LADY DEATH: HER STORY
Lady Death is a supernatural, sword-wielding anti-hero who battles evil. Once she was Hope, a teenaged girl who is deceived by demons in an effort to save her mother’s soul in Hell. She renounces her mortality for eternal life in Hell. To ensure her survival, she turns to the darkness within herself and begins a transformation into Lady Death.
WHAT IS THE NEW STORY, LADY DEATH: EXTINCTION EXPRESS #1?
In Extinction Express, the Hellbourne Elders dispatch Atrocitas, an insane angel/demon hybrid assassin to destroy Lady Death for once and for all. But their epic confrontation proves tragic for a beloved character and sets in motion events that will change Lady Death’s undead life forever! Is this the road to extinction? Featuring the diabolical return of Hellwitch and the first appearance of a major new character in the Lady Death Universe.
Lady Death: Extinction Express #1 is a 48-page, square-bound all new graphic novel that builds on the mythology we created in “Chaos Rules #1” and Damnation Game #1.
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! Because the "fiends" demanded it, we are launching the all-new LADY DEATH FIEND CLUB. Show the world your "fiendom!"
And... As we launch this Kickstarter campaign, the creative work is 100% done. All we gotta do is print and ship -- and that is where YOU come in! Printing and shipping ain't cheap! We need your support to get this done!

WHY KICKSTARTER AGAIN?
One word: You. You get it. We make Lady Death for you! This project comes from the heart (a dark heart, I might add). There are no corporate overlords telling me what to do. I answer to YOU!
WILL LADY DEATH: EXTINCTION EXPRESS #1 KICK ASS?
Take a gander and judge for yourself. Check out the preview art and see if we deliver the goods --
"FIEND FUND" LADY DEATH: EXTINCTION EXPRESS #1!
Do you want kick ass, take-no-prisoners stories? I want you to be our financiers. In return, we’ll make a graphic novel for you that we can all be proud of. I’ve learned that “fiend funding” is the best way to bring Lady Death: Extinction Express #1 to life. Why? No middlemen. It's just you and me.
The cool thing is that the creative work on the book is complete. We will start shipping rewards within six weeks of closing the kickstarter. We learned a few things on our last four Kickstarters and believe we can shave a week off the printing time and get you the goods quicker.
PLEASE PLEDGE NOW!
If you can’t, please share on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Every bit helps!
WHERE DO THE BUCKS GO?
Every penny raised goes towards making Lady Death: Extinction Express #1 a reality. That covers everything from the creative talent, graphic design, printing, supplies, fees and taxes. In other words, everything that it takes to make this happen is where the bulk of the money’s going! A portion of the money will go to fulfilling all the cool rewards we are offering and a percentage will go to taxes, Kickstarter fees and credit card processing fees. Any profit will go toward funding future Lady Death stories.
Think your pledge as a pre-purchase. We’ve put together a bunch of rewards that we hope you love. And any of our rewards make a great gift for the Lady Death “fiend” in your life! Check ‘em out –

Risks and challenges
When it comes to timely shipping and fulfillment, every project could have obstacles, however, Lady Death: Extinction Express #1 and all our other rewards are standing by to print. All the creative is complete. Our printing partners are secured, our budgets are complete, our shipping supplies are ready to order and our manpower is lined up. We just gotta print.
And regarding rewards fulfillment, I’ve owned mail order companies for over twenty years. I have an extensive publishing and manufacturing background and ship on time (or reasonably on time). We will make sure all your rewards are delivered as promised, packed securely.
You can count on this: whether we have hiccups or not, we will be in communication with you during the entire process and update you in a timely manner. We want to assure you that beyond making the coolest products possible, the printing, packing and shipping of these items in a top-notch manner is equally important to us.
In conclusion, I’d like to thank all the readers, backers and collectors who have supported our last four Kickstarters. We are blown away by the amazing response! We simply cannot thank you enough! Because of you, Lady Death LIVES!!!! Long live Lady Death!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
