Professional wrestling is real. So are werewolves, vampires, and really greedy promoters that will stop at nothing to make a dollar.
Jimmy “Resurrecter” King, is a third generation wrestler dealing with the curse of his family – every time he is killed in the ring, he comes back to life. As if that wasn’t bad enough, now the Resurrecter must fight not only for his life, but also for his family, as he is forced to compete in the deadly Continental Gauntlet.
ONE FALL is loaded with action, drama, dark comedy, and tons of wrestling.
WHAT ARE YOU FUNDING?
This campaign is funding the first issue of ONE FALL, a five-issue series written and published by David F. Walker and drawn by Brett Weldele. This will be a full color, 32-page comic book with 24 pages of main story, and a back-up feature by writer Ted Pirro.
Our goal will cover the following:
Production - Comics and Art Prints
Supplies - Pages, etc.
Marketing for One Fall and Solid Comix
We wanted the freedom to create a series on our own terms, and at a pace that works for our schedules. The first issue of ONE FALL is drawn, inked, and partially colored and lettered. By the time this campaign is over, we will have the first issue 100% in the can and ready to go to print. The money raised from this campaign will go to fund printing of the first issue of ONE FALL, production of other rewards, and shipping. Any money raised over the target goal will be used to help offset the cost of creating the first issue (which we all did for free), and as seed money for the second issue. In addition, we are hoping to continue to spread the word about SOLID COMIX!

Risks and challenges
Every creative projects has risks, but thankfully with One Fall we avoided the biggest risks of all by waiting until we had most of the book done. As of right now, the first issue of One Fall is completely drawn and inked, and Brett has colored almost half of the pages. We will be 100% done with One Fall #1 by the time this campaign ends, which means the first issue will be going to press no later than April. We have set the targeted release date for June 2019, though we are hoping to fulfill most rewards by May 2019.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
