10/4/2016 - REWARDS UPDATE
When I set up this Kickstarter, I'd read various accounts of other campaigns messing up their postage by not charging enough - and I now think I may have been a bit over-zealous to avoid this, and have actually charged TOO much for postage.
I can't edit the reward postage pricing now the rewards are live, so instead, I'll be adding a new extra print (with awesome art by Gavin Mitchell) and a new second bookmark to every reward (with the exception of the PDF-only reward, obviously), to try and give you guys a bit more bang for your buck. I'll post up some art previews of the new print when I get it from Gav over the next few days!
Thanks to everyone who has backed us so far! Keep spreading the word!
Bruce Outback is probably Australia's greatest detective, and his cases send him back through time to help solve unsolved crimes throughout history. With help from his genetically modified Koala and support from his gruff, no-nonsense Chief, each issue will be a great fun comedy; think Quantum Leap meets Crocodile Dundee! This Kickstarter Campaign is to fund issue #1 of what will eventually be a six-part comic book series. The book will be a high quality, full colour, UK size 32 page publication, with 22 pages of story and the remainder as bonus content.
Issue #1 - Backdraft To The Future
The Chief sends Bruce and Koala back to London, 1911, to catch the culprit of an orphanage fire. How far can Bruce bend the rules of space/time policework to save the day? And how can he stave off that bloody cold London weather?
Issue #1 sees Bruce sent back in time to solve an arson at an orphanage - little suspecting that this case will lead to a crime across time and space that he could never have imagined!
The book is 80% complete right now, with just five pages left to finish up. Assuming the campaign is successful, I hope to have the comic printed and posted before the end of June 2016.
Risks and challenges
The main challenge is time. Every effort will be made to ensure the book is completed as soon as is humanly possible, but several factors such as day jobs and health could (emphasis on COULD) marginally delay the production by a few weeks or a month or so. That said, the book is almost completely finished anyway, so i don't see this as a problem.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
