About

Discord is a sci-fi/fantasy series about the crew of an inter-dimensional library. Our goal is to get paperback copies of Volume One printed on high quality, glossy paper. We'll need a minimum of $6,000 to print 500 copies and cover shipping costs. If we hit $15,000 Discord updates will include three pages a week for three months after production resumes. 

When Flora moves to Washington DC with her father, she discovers the entrance to Discord hidden in a China Town alleyway. Once inside, she is recruited by the alien Kashi to help give away the knowledge of the multiverse to those in need, like the courageous frog Prince Croaker. When the Prince's planet is threatened by a world devouring monster the Discord team does everything they can to intervene.  

  

 

Our stretch goals will help make writing Discord much less stressful, while allowing us to produce content and a much faster rate.

Costs Breakdown
Costs Breakdown

Stretch Goal 1- $15,000 

After the hiatus ends, we'll release three pages a week for three months. That's 50% more comic every month. 35% more each week. 

Stretch Goal 2- $23,000

All copies will be signed by both Simon and Michal. To accomplish this, we'll fly Michal to America, and he'll spend a week signing every, single, book. Also I'll show him around the East Coast. Maybe we'll do a convention or something? Can't be certain, but you're paying for FRIENDSHIP, which is priceless. 

Stretch Goal 3- $30,000

4 pages a week once we return! Double the Discord! This will allow us to make roughly 10 Chapters a year and will be a huge step towards making this our full time jobs. 

Eric Menge 

Author of Snow by Night and creator of the browser game Tattered Weave, Eric was a very helpful source of information and guidance. He's currently running a Kickstarter for Volume 3 of Snow by Night. Take a look! 

Guest Design: Butterchops

The Crypts let us use their song as inspiration for one of our sassiest side characters. 

 Be sure to give the song a listen and check out their other stuff. It's funny.

 

Guest Design: Mugsy

Ben Galley is an award winning author and self publishing consultant. His book Bloodrush is a weird western, and was the most popular book in the first ever SPFBO. He designed the alien Mugsy.

Guest Design: Balloon Spider 

D. Moonfire is author of SPFBO runner up Sand and Blood. He designed the Balloon Spider which I LOVE! 

 

Risks and challenges

Neither of us have run a Kickstarter before... with that being said, our rewards are cheap and easy to manufacture. The most difficult part will be finalizing the paperback formatting, but the comic's already done.

Both of us are dissatisfied with our rate of production. I want us to get back up to our original output of 4 pages a week, which would translate to roughly 10 Chapters a year- almost two graphic novels worth. I consider this to be a professional minimum, as most comic publishers release an issue a month. To do this we need funding. The farther we get over our goal the more achievable this goal will be.

Discord's just begun. We need your help to make it last.
