This is my brand new, post-apocalyptic, western comic book.
In this very dangerous world there is a safe oasis, the Town of Beatrice, which is protected by sheriff Morris and his deputies.
In issue #1 we meet Morris, his sidekick, Tread and the Town of Beatrice. Tread calls on Morris to help deal with the threat of some nasty lizards who have recently shown up in the swamps north of town. They're called the Komodo Boys and they're not exactly 'friendly'.
Morris #1 will be available with 3 different limited edition variant covers. Choose between Cover B by Casey Parsons, Cover C by Robert Freeman and Cover D by A. Shay Hahn.
A stand alone story which helps introduce us to the world of Morris, the Town of Beatrice and what happens to citizens who break the rules.
Morris gets called to help deal with an exile who has returned and the moral dilemma he has to decide.
This is a 32pg collection of all the awesome Morris pinups by my awesome artist pals..

$7500 is a lot of money. Where is is all going?
The majority of the campaign money is going to be used to print the book. the rest of it going toward fees, rewards, shipping and production (title/logo design, music/video production, coloring, additional art).
Risks and challenges
The book is almost finished. We just need to get it colored and printed.
I've been waiting a long time to finally make this project happen so the risks are relatively low.
I'm very eager to get this book into everyone's hands by the promised date!
