About

MONUMENT is something different in comics. It’s a classic pop record in comic book form. It's part Twin Peaks and part HBO’s Big Little Lies. MONUMENT is a comic book about a small town with a lot of secrets. Red envelopes start arriving all over town revealing people’s deepest, darkest secrets and each chapter is about what those people do once the secret is out. While the letters are arriving, the local police are struggling to find a missing teenager. Are the letters and the missing teenager somehow connected? MONUMENT is a gripping murder mystery involving soul-crushing lies systematically being brought to light. The mystery is mixed with a series of bittersweet, quirky and slightly romantic slice-of-life stories set. MONUMENT is about community. It’s about the 90’s. It’s about the power of truth. 

By supporting this Kickstarter, you get to read both the already completed- first chapter and the latest chapter. The goal is distribute print and online versions of MONUMENT #1 and #2.

Why support this book? By supporting someone on Kickstarter, you support an emerging artist bring their vision to the world without corporate interference. You are supporting someone with the evident skills, work ethic, and connections to excel. It’s the right time for me to execute this project because not only do I have the talent and the track record, I have the bandwidth to take this project far. You want to support someone creating a vision that you cannot find anywhere else. I’m the type of artist you want to support. 

MONUMENT is subtle, original and highly ambitious. It can only be willed into existence by the support of folks like you, people seeking out and supporting unique new voices. I’ve supported others’ endeavors. I know the gratification that comes from watching an artist blossom from my patronage. Your support is valuable and promise make you proud. You were there from the start. I truly appreciate it.

 

WOW! We are funded with 10 more days to go. Great news, but we aren't done. The real goal is for as many people to read this story as possible. Please, continue to support and share. There are now stretch goals:
1. $6K will unlock a 4 page short story.
2. $7K will unlock an original 3"x 4" pen/ink drawing for Premium Backers and above (you, too Retailers)
3. $8K will unlock a metallic ink cover.
4. $10K will unlock a THIRD ISSUE OF MONUMENT

Risks and challenges

I've previously published comics multiple times, including the first issue of MONUMENT. I foresee no problems and plan to have the new books out in the spring of 2018.
