Who is Bullet Face?
Bullet Face is a character I created in 2008 for a webcomic battle site. I was feeling down when I created him but he got me excited for making art and comics again and I had a lot of fun adventures with him, pitting him against Vampires, Cyborgs, Kung Fu police dectives, Lumberjacks, Shadow Monsters and more. Over the years I grew very fond of Bullet and the backstory I created for him and really wanted to do a book of him on his own. A series of self contained stories, but still an on-going tale. I had never published my own work before and didn't know if I had it in me. The successful funding of the first Mini-comic on Kickstarter has allowed me to start realizing that dream! I'm officially a working writer/artist! Now I need your help with the second book!
Cover from the first book
Last fall, Kickstarter successfully funded Book One of Bullet Face. Book Two is written, and penciled. I'm inking the pencils as I write this.

How long is the mini comic?
This second book is 12 pages. 4 pages longer then the last one. Black & white interior pages, with a color front, and back cover. I'm drawing it large, but printing it at 6x6. The first project turned out really well and the books looked great! I didn't see a history of many mini comics projects on Kickstarter so I wanted to try to represent what they can be, and how cool a series of them all at the same size can turn out.

So this is part of a series?
Yes. Each part will continue the story but also be relatively self contained stand alone tales. All in all, there are 4 mini-comics written to make up the first story arc.

Anything at all... $1, $5, even just spreading the word and shouting it out on facebook and twitter makes a difference! Let me know in the comments if you have any questions about ANYTHING.
Some of the rewards. Postcard sized mini-posters, prints, bookmark, guest artist print
Pick a blank cover of your choice and have me illustrate it in full color.

Thanks so much to everyone who took time to read this and to all the supporters, Thank's again!
Risks and challenges
Mailing and preparing rewards is a challenge, but it went pretty well last time. I've sold stuff on Etsy and mailed commissions and trades with a deadline many times. I try very hard to be reliable.
Making the goal is probably the HARDEST challenge... it's a struggle and a very up and down emotional experience. Any help I can get getting the word out I REALLY APPRECIATE it.
