Inhibit is a long-form urban sci-fi webcomic about teenagers with superpowers. I started posting Inhibit online to read for free in 2015, and now, with your help, I'm ready to bring the story to print for the first time. The goal of this Kickstarter is to create a 200+ page book with retouched art and lettering, and brand new exclusive extras.
As a kid, Victor dreamed of training to be a superhero. That didn't go so well.
Nine years ago, Victor eagerly joined the UK’s most esteemed superpower training centre. Now approaching his 18th birthday, he’s been kicked out and transferred to a facility for kids who can't control their powers. Despite a rocky record, he is given one last chance to receive his licence and go home to a normal life. But when he most needs things to go smoothly for once, everything starts to go wrong, and he finds himself tangled in the plot of a mysterious arsonist...
If you like teenage angst, unsettling government organisations, being gay, committing crimes, and expressions that break every law of physics, you might like Inhibit!
Please note the comic does feature violence, strong language, and some body horror.
The paperback book will include the prologue and first five chapters of Inhibit and will have over 200 pages of full-colour comic, with bonus material at the back. Early pages have been tweaked and almost half the comic has been re(-re-re-)lettered, with brand new book-exclusive chapter titles. The whole book is already drawn and ready to go to the printer. This is the first of three planned books, and backing this project not only lets me print this book but will help me continue to work on the rest of the comic!
As well as the book, backers can get their hands on a bunch of other fun rewards, like stickers, a charm, and beautiful prints by guest artists! Check out the chart below for which tiers come with which rewards!
* Single character, full body, traditionally inked. I reserve the right to refuse a commission request and ask for a different subject.
** I reserve the right to refuse a cameo request and ask for a different person/character.
Thanks to your help, all the stretch goals have now been unlocked! These rewards will be added to all orders with a physical copy of the book for free, including the Trainee tier!
Check out the links for each guest artist below, they're all incredibly talented and I'm a big fan of their work. I'd also like to give an enormous thank you to Alex, Spire, and particularly Hari for their constant motivation, support, and advice while planning this project!

Risks and challenges
This is my first Kickstarter, but I have thoroughly researched printing, shipping, and reward costs, and consulted with people who have run successful Kickstarter campaigns to make sure everything runs smoothly. The book's contents and the rewards are all finished and ready to go to print. I'll keep everyone updated every step of the way, and if there are any unexpected delays in production or shipping I'll be sure to let backers know!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
