About

Reena Saffron may have survived her first few days as an officer with the Pallad City Police Department, but her most dangerous cases are yet to come! She'll have to investigate a theme park where not all is as it seems, try to prevent an experimental tank from leveling the city, hunt down a robotic police canine unit, and contend with a berserk android...

Can Reena and her hot-headed partner, Madison Wynter, bring law and order to a city on the edge of chaos?

Danger Zone One originally began in June 2016 as a weekly webcomic. It continues to update every Sunday and we haven't missed an update since we started three years ago. You can read the comic online at www.DangerZoneOne.com

Last summer we successfully funded Danger Zone One, Volume 1 on Kickstarter! Now we're back with the goal to fund a second physical volume of new Danger Zone One material. This volume will contain over 150 black and white pages, featuring 6 chapters of the comic, along with behind-the-scenes artwork, sketches, concept art, pin-ups, Danger Zone Onesies, and more!

The physical edition will be formatted as a traditional manga-sized paperback (5.5" x 7.75").

Here's a look at a physical copy of Volume 1 and how it compares next to Yen Press's High School of the Dead release:

Below are several page samples from Danger Zone One, Volume 2:

The funds received will go towards the cost of printing the books, shipping them to backers, paying for additional rewards, and the necessary Kickstarter fees/tax. In addition, funds will go to pay Danger Zone One's artists for any remaining pages needed prior to printing. All excess money will go into funding future Danger Zone One chapters.

Missed out on backer rewards from our previous Kickstarter for Volume 1? Here's some more info on them: 

The limited “Chief of Police” tier not only nets you a bunch of great backer rewards, but you will also receive one full-color commission, drawn by the current Danger Zone One artist, Salaiix, and sent to you digitally. Here's an example of Salaiix's art style, and what you can expect from this tier:

Pledge amounts for backers in the United States include shipping costs. International backers are responsible for taxes, VAT, and/or customs fees. Sadly, we can not mark items as "gifts." All physical items ship via USPS.

Risks and challenges

A majority of the chapters are already completed, with only one chapter left to produce. This means that the primary challenge is getting the volume printed.

Thanks to our previous Kickstarter for Volume 1, I have already had experience working with a printing company, publishing a quality product, and securely shipping it to backers (along with pledge rewards).

From 2011-2015 I published Shadowland Magazine, a quarterly print publication that covered the best in horror, sci-fi and fantasy entertainment, which was available in comic/hobby shops, book stores, and Barnes and Noble locations nationwide. I'm well-versed in working with distributors, and with meeting production/print deadlines, along with producing a product that backers will be satisfied with.

Backers are both excited and invested in the projects they support, and I know the value of communication. I will keep backers in the loop throughout the entire process.
