This Kickstarter is to Launch the first issue of the Josh Lobster story. 

Risks and challenges

The book is finished (with the exception of the cover). There are no risks. This is a pre-ordering system so you can be part of the Josh Lobster story on the ground floor. This is my second Kickstarter. The last one was a small success and all rewards were sent and recieved within 30 days of the Kickstarter ending.

The challenge begins with issue 2. Chris Reilly passed away as we were finishing the first issue and we will have to find a way to continue and eventually finish the collection without him based on notes, emails and conversations.
