The Redeemers #0 was a Wizard World Chicago Exclusive and sold out. The first printing of The Redeemers #1 was officially released at Chicago's C2E2 convention in mid-April and it, too, sold out. Now we'd like the chance to make The Redeemers #2 an even bigger success.
"We" are Eric Rampson (writer) and Wil Brendel (artist). We're looking to raise funds to pay Wil a page rate (so that he doesn't have to try to squeeze drawing in between shifts at Denny's - it's hard to work with art that has Moons Over My Hammy smeared all over it), pay for printing costs, and hopefully offset some of our marketing (i.e. website and convention) costs.
The Redeemers is the story of a band that fights evil when they aren't rocking the faces off their fans (and sometimes, they do both at the same time). The guys all have something to atone for and they've decided to help themselves by helping others. Think Almost Famous + Buffy The Vampire Slayer and you're starting to get the idea.
