SHIPPING INFO (International)
All rewards have U.S. shipping and handling included. International supporters: shipping is costly, but that's why we offer the Digi-Pack at the $30 reward tier! Anything we print, we will provide you with a digital copy and MOAR! You'll also receive your avatar by artist Marcelo Basile. If print is your thing, we can work something out; please message us to determine your rate and the postage will be added to your pledge. All sales are final.
Thanks to YOU, our Kickstarter campaign for our comic RUIN was a great success and is almost complete. Now we're back with Wicker as we prepare for Wizard World Austin Comic Con 2014!
We LOVE horror... but we are really nice. If you've got a question, would like to see something as a reward we missed, or maybe you just need a friend...message us! Darker (-DS) or June (-JJ) will respond to any concern or praise promptly.
With Issue one already complete, the $7,000 will cover Marcelo's expenses and allow us to complete issue #2 and break ground on issue #3. Only Marcelo will be paid from the Kickstarter. Darker (Letterer, Writer, Graphic Artist) will NOT be paid from this campaign. We will then meet all our Backer rewards and submit the series for publication to a Creator Owned Publisher. Any additional funds will get us much closer towards completion of our first volume. We will announce stretch goals in the the event we surpass our initial fund goal.
*Pin-ups and Art concepts style vary. Actual interior art pages from Wicker #1 below are numbered.
Risks and challenges
Wicker is ahead of RUIN (our previous Kickstarter campaign) in terms of production. We will meet ALL our deadlines, never fear! The artists for each project are different... we will maintain a steady work rhythm with our Backers needs at the forefront. We may lapse a week or two here or there (illness, death, Child rearing)... We are a creative team dedicated to fulfilling our Kickstarter promises. I give you my word. We will NEVER be silent. We are available to answer ANY questions 24/7... and if you don't believe me, I'll put you in contact with previous Backers that will attest.
Please see below for some possible obstacles we may encounter with this type of project post-funding, and the ways that we will slay them.
Not having enough funds to pay the artists to continue the project for future issues could be a problem, but won't be for us. After we complete the first issue, we are confident we will attain publishing and will have issue #1 to sell to raise funds to support issue #2 and so on. We'll sell print issues, digital, and door-to-door if we have to!
Losing Marcelo (artist) to an illness or unforeseen circumstance would be catastrophic. As my co-creator he is instrumental to Wicker's style, but we could carry on with a new artist in a slightly different style if we HAD to, and ultimately the project would survive.
In the event of Darker Sho's untimely death, he has taken proper precautions and already completed the entire first volume and buried it in a time-capsule in an undisclosed location, of which only his long-time writing partner is privy to. Okay, the time capsule is a joke, but the first volume really is complete!
Some creators experience minor success and then abandon the projects that got them there, but we know that Wicker has the potential to be a series that runs for many years. We've been working at this for a year already, and are 100% dedicated to this project. Our team is strong and we are going to make Wicker a success.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
