AND A PRINT INTRODUCING... WHO? MYSTERY CHARACTER TO BE REVEALED SOON IN THE PLUME COMIC!

New art just in! Nei Ruffino cover for Plume #1. 

Almost a year ago Kickstarter backers helped bring Plume's first chapter to print, and the web comic's kept chuggin' along. Now I'm working with our pals at Devil's Due, a full blown comic publisher who has done books like Voltron & Family Guy, to bring an ENTIRE 5-ISSUE MINISERIES to life!

Not just on the web, but into a print miniseries that you can hold in your hands, mailed directly to you, and also available in comic book stores throughout the continent! But I still have to be able to make it happen if it's going to see the light of day

Help me take the time I need to finish Plume's first major story arc by pledging, and help us blow this thing up! If we achieve our goal this could just be the thing that lets me start giving you five plume pages a week.

Plus Devil's Due has agreed to handle shipping everything out for me so I can focus on writing and drawing ... suckers! Thanks to all of Plume's readers and supporters for helping this dream come true.

- K. Lynn Smith

WHAT IN THE 'HEY' IS PLUME? It is a web comic series about a girl named Vesper Grey and her supernatural companion, Corrick. After her father's work is stolen, she and Corrick venture out into the Wild West to reclaim and take names. Giddyup and ride your horse & buggy over to PlumeComic.com for more on the comic.

WHAT IS THIS PROJECT FOR? To raise funds to allow me to pick up the pace on the web comic even more, and finish the entire first story arc by early 2013 so that Devil's Due can bring them to press in shops and make Vesper, Corrick & K. Lynn known across the land.. Issues 1 through 2 (and a half) are already done. This also takes major pressure off the day job (boooooooo, day job!) and allows me to spend more time drawin' comics.

WHAT DO I GET FOR GIVING YOU MY HARD EARNED MONEY? Much like before, awesome things - only even more things! And more awesomer.
