About

My name is Nicky and I'm the creator of Rock Mary Rock, a self-published all ages comic. Rock Mary Rock is an ongoing series which I've started working on since December 2015. Currently, the comic is at Issue 4 and I sell them primarily in comic conventions throughout the country. Issue 5 has been fully inked and I am wrapping up on Issue 6. With your help, I'll be able to collect the first 6 Issues into a Trade Paperback Graphic Novel of 142 pages!!! 

The story centers around Mary, a young teen who accidentally awakens the spirit of a deceased rock star. In order for the spirit to move on to the afterlife, Mary has to fulfill his dreams: to become a Rock Legend. The journey is full of adventure, friendship, battles and most importantly, music.

 During my teens, I got into music and started playing the guitar. The very first song that I learned to play was Enter Sandman from Metallica. I got really serious and took professional vocal lessons from record labels. And like any other kid, I love reading comics from a young age. I always wished someone would draw a comic that actually talks about music and what it means to pursue it as a dream. Throughout the years, I've read many on the topic but none of them actually touch on the technicalities of musicianship. Thus in 2012, I started writing and Rock Mary Rock was conceived. 

For the past year, I've primarily been selling Rock Mary Rock in comic conventions throughout the country and thanks to all the support from everyone, we're well into finishing season 1 of Rock Mary Rock! This Kickstarter Project is to fund Volume 1 of Rock Mary Rock which includes the first 6 issues!! Issues 5 and 6 are almost done and the entire book will come up to around 142 pages with a great closing to the first arc. 

The funding will mostly go to the Printing and my colorist, Jeremy Lawson. Some of Jeremy's color work in the industry includes PREZ, Batman Beyond and Teen Titans Go! for DC Comics!!! Just look at his amazing colors on Rock Mary Rock below!

Risks and challenges

The first 4 issues of Rock Mary Rock are already done. Issue 5 is fully inked and Issue 6 is well on the way. I'm hiring a professional colorist to color both remaining issues. Should there be any delays with the colors, I'll personally color the books myself. That is the only risk which is manageable within this project.

I've successfully funded two previous Kickstarter and thus knows how to plan and run this project.
