Dusk is the twisting story of one woman's journey through a supernatural world that doesn't want her. This Kickstarter will fund the completion of the 3rd exciting volume of the Dusk series (post-production and formatting costs).
The Series Plot:
As a battered wife, Eve’s only concern was keeping her marriage together. But when she is kidnapped into the sordid supernatural world of vampires and foul magic, Eve finds she doesn’t want to leave. Her mysterious benefactor, the Vampire Lord Ash, wishes her to have a normal life, but Eve chooses to stay in his service. Dusk is the story of Eve's challenges living in the darkness, a supernatural action-drama told through a dynamic blend of the sequential art styles of American comics and Japanese manga. Several artists help tell these stark noir tales of vampires and unrequited love.
About Dusk Volume 3: Ashes:
Eve: beautifully flawed and horribly broken. You have all read her misadventures as she has struggled to find her place in the dark world of Dusk. But now in Volume 3, we take some quick glances at her reluctant benefactor, the vampire Lord Ash. See how Ash’s tragic origin is wielded against him like a poisoned dagger. Enjoy a story of betrayal and loss as Eve and Ash meet for the first time. Through Eve’s distorted perspective, watch as her Ash comes alive just for her. Of course, spread out amongst the pages are other tales of the supernatural that Eve battles through, like Dusk’s unique take on werewolves.
Won’t you join us and enjoy the trials that await Eve and the others?
From the safety of your chair, join in the macabre horror that is Dusk.
About the Publisher:
Dusk Comics is an independent publisher of comics that works with a myriad of different styles, themes, and genres in order to bring our readers the best in graphic entertainment. Our flagship series, Dusk, is a prime example of our philosophy in action. Dusk is a paranormal mystery tale told through separate stories done by a variety of artists, whose unique artistic takes service different moods and themes in each vignette. This gives the reader "snapshots" into the world of Dusk and its characters’ lives from different angles and perspectives to provide a more full view of the overall drama and action.
What We Need:
As a comic so defined by collaboration, we want to provide current and new fans the opportunity to be a part of the next stage of Dusk and Dusk Comics. We need your help to pay the creators who will put the finishing touches on the pages of Dusk Volume 3 (which include lettering and preparing each page for print) directly as well as to print the volumes once they are complete. This is a great chance to support a creative and independent endeavor to provide readers of all types with stories that will not only entertain but also engage on several levels.
We would love to say that we are trying to start a revolution, trying to change the way the industry works, make comics work in new ways, but that’s ultimately not what we are about. We are about the story first, middle, and last. If our stories grow up and do amazing things with their lives we would be very proud parents. But we are happy with whatever our stories become, as long as they're true to their core and that core is something you as a reader find interesting.

Risks and challenges
All of the final production work is being put squarely on the shoulders of Joamette Gil, so it's all dependent on her time and the speed she can complete the work. Luckily she has done plenty of work for Dusk Comics and knows what needs to be done and what is expected of her.
At worse case, if Joamette can't complete the work load given to her, Dusk Comics has a network of freelancers that we can work with to get the project finished.
We have the utmost faith and trust in Joamette.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
