THE STORY

In the near future, people can upload their memories as a form of social networking, called "Thoughtshare." Special Agent Brenda Bloodworth leads an FBI task force that can enter the memories that people don't want to share, in order to solve crimes.

When Bloodworth falsely turns up in a memory that frames her for murder, she must leap the Chain of Thoughts that will lead her to a conspiracy that threatens to control minds on a worldwide scale.

We have now entered the second chapter of the story, where we find Bloodworth framed for murder, and on the run from an invisible conspiracy!

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT BLOODWORTH

Our 12-page BLOODWORTH Issue #0 hit ComiXology on September 16th, 2015, and we successfully funded BLOODWORTH ISSUE #1 on March 31st, 2016. Here are some of the critical reviews so far:

"Part Blade Runner, Part Total Recall, All Parts Awesome. Bloodworth takes Social Networking beyond our expectations and turns it into truly intense mystery." - AJ Herrera, Managing Editor, Forbidden Panel

“Daniel Corey’s incredible knack for world-building is on full display in BLOODWORTH. The sights, sounds, and characters are vibrant and intricate, and the story is brimming with possibilities!” – Barbra Dillon, Managing Editor, Fanboy Comics

"The premise of the book should immediately evoke Total Recall, but in reverse. Instead of fake memories being created for one person’s entertainment, genuine memories are being broadcasted for everybody’s entertainment. More important than the similarity to Total Recall though is the theme of memory and its reliability. [Philip K.] Dick came back over and over again to human memory, its reliability, and how our memories make us human. This comic is doing that too." - Flickering Myth (Read the full review HERE.)

WHO WE ARE

Hello, everyone! Daniel Corey, here. Our first issue Kickstarter was a fantastic success, thanks to supporters like YOU! So now we're back for a second round!

If this is the first time we're meeting: I'm a writer. I write comics. I've released a few books with Image Comics: MORIARTY and RED CITY. I've produced two books through my own company, DangerKatt Creative Studio: DANGERKATT'S PROPHET, and BLOODWORTH

Joining me on this adventure are artist Chris Fenoglio and letterer/designer Dave Lanphear. Chris worked with me on RED CITY at Image Comics, and is also known for his work on IDW's ORPHAN BLACK and X-FILES: ORIGINS.

Dave is a venerable comics pro that has worked for every publisher under sun, and his most notable achievements include Archaia's RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN with Janet Lee and Jim McCann, and his Eisner nominations for his work on Marvel's SECRET AVENGERS and Valiant's DIVINITY.

WHY WE'RE HERE

Our goal here on Kickstarter is to raise $3,500 to pay for the production costs of issue #2 of our eventual 4-issue BLOODWORTH miniseries. 

MAKE NOTE:

- If you missed the BLOODWORTH Issue #1 Kickstarter, no worries! You can get Issue #1 through this campaign, as well. 

- Also, the story we are creating is 4 issues in length, but right now, we are just raising money for the production of Issue #2. We plan on coming back to KS over the next several months to fund issues 3 and 4, and we're hoping you'll still be along for the ride. The reasons for this are explained in the questions section below.

A FEW QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE

Q: This Kickstarter is titled BLOODWORTH Issue #2, but I don't have Issue #1. Why should I pledge?

A: Excellent question. No worries, if you missed us the first time around: You can get BLOODWORTH Issue #1 through this campaign, as well. We have it available on several reward tiers, which you'll see to the right. We had two covers for that issue, one by series artist Chris Fenoglio, and a variant by Eisner-nominated artist Darick Robertson! Both versions are available here!

Q: Why are you only raising money for one issue, if you have a four-issue miniseries planned?

A: KS campaigns with funding goals under $10,000 have the greatest chance at success. That's why we are doing a total of four Kickstarters to fund this project.

Q: What will you be using the money for? 

A: The majority of money raised by this campaign will be used to pay the artists. The artists have to put in many long hours of work: it can take as much as 1-2 days to finish the pencils, inks, colors and letters of 1 page of a comic book. The remaining monies raised will cover the print costs of reward tiers that include print copies. 

Q: You guys have released books by some really major publishers. Why do you need to do a Kickstarter? 

A: Honestly, indie comic creators don't often see a profit on their work. Given the great cost of production, printing and distribution, even if your book is successful, returns are usually minimal. More than anything, we're in this for the love of comics and storytelling, and not for making big profits. And that's why we need to raise the money to cover the production costs.

STRETCH GOALS!!!

If possible, we would love to go over our goal and offer even more from this campaign! There are a lot of things we can do here: there are more BLOODWORTH-related products that we can offer. We have a history of working with Blippar, creating Augmented Reality content for BLOODWORTH (What is AR? Basically, blending digital virtual content with print! Check out the article about BLOODWORTH's AR work with Blippar HERE). This is something we could expand upon, as a stretch goal. Combining AR with our comic could allow you to use your smartphone to immerse yourself in 360-degree comic environments, straight off the page!

The dream stretch goal for this campaign would be doubling our target funding, so we can give you issues 2 and 3! Impossible? NEVER. Help us spread the word, and we can make it happen!

And WHO KNOWS? If we do really well, you might just get new pinup artwork and/or a variant cover!

Risks and challenges

Please know that EVERYBODY who answered their surveys for the BLOODWORTH Issue #1 campaign has received their reward! And we're going to do that again this time!

The biggest risk in comic production is that you will fall behind and miss deadlines. In the realm of Kickstarter, falling behind or losing pace could mean that people will be left waiting months, a year, or indefinitely for rewards to arrive.

Chris, Dave and I are all pros that deliver on time. Since we are planning to continue fundraising for the rest of the miniseries, we kinda HAVE to be reliable with this campaign, and every subsequent campaign, if we plan to finish our project!

As you may know, a Kickstarter campaign is a very difficult undertaking. I've seen both success and failure here at Kickstarter, and I've learned from from those experiences. With this campaign, I am focused on two things: 1. Meeting our funding goal 2. Delivering you BLOODWORTH Issue #2 in a timely fashion.
