About this project

I'm Dwight L. MacPherson, Harvey-nominated creator, writer, and editor. I'm also the founder and publisher of Hocus Pocus Comics. HP Comics isn't like traditional publishers. Our goal at HP Comics is to tell the most amazing stories in the way that we want to tell them, in whatever format we choose, but let you, the reader, have the ultimate say on what gets made. By approaching comics this way we give you what you want instead of publishing a ton of comics that go largely unnoticed. 

So here's your chance to be a part of what we at HP Comics believe is an amazing story. If you agree, we ask you to support our book by pledging and spreading the word about Houdini's Silver Dollar Misfits far and wide. We know there are a ton of Kickstarter campaigns competing for your attention, so we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for stopping by our page to take a look at Houdini's Silver Dollar Misfits, and we hope you will join us and help make this book a reality. 

Who is Drake Smith, and why is the world’s most powerful secret society chasing him? Houdini’s Silver Dollar Misfits tells the story of an orphan and his ragtag friends who are forced on a fantastical journey to gather clues and solve these mysteries...or die trying.

We've all seen the shows where orphans set out to discover who they truly are and where they come from. Sometimes their searches result in wonderful reunions with tears and embraces. But sometimes they result in mind-numbing revelations that completely shatter their worlds and turn their lives upside-down. Drake Smith is such a searcher, and he will take us on a magical quest filled with hidden clues, supernatural terrors, subterranean passageways, deadly traps, secret chambers, and the world's most sinister secret society, before he finally learns the truth.

Risks and challenges

Life is uncertain. Mathieu could have a horrible skydiving accident. I could meet up with one of the famous gargantuan Florida alligators having a bad day...you never know. But I will tell you this: Google us. We produced two books together: Jim Reaper: Week One and Lil' Hellions: A Day at the Zoo. We've proven that we are battle-tested professional creators who know how to finish. But life is uncertain. Things could happen that will cause us to fall behind. But you have our word: as long as we have breath, we will work feverishly to complete this book and get it into your hands as soon as humanly possible. And that's the best that anyone can honestly promise.

No Stretch Goals?

We will keep printing as many books as we need to. If you want a copy we want to give it to you. So keep on pledging! Whatever funds we raise above that will be used to begin production on a second Houdini's Silver Dollar Misfits graphic novel. You heard it here first, folks! We have a lot more stories to tell about Drake and his misfits. So, by helping us exceed our goal you will not only help us make the first book, but also to begin the second!
