Everette Hartsoe's RAZOR: SCARS GRAPHIC NOVEL
"We all have scars and each one comes with a story.
Some of us have been hurt more than others.
The fortunate souls, have scars that fade away.
The rest of us, have scars so deep they never heal.
These are my scars and I’ll let them tell the story."- Nicole from RAZOR: SCARS
Nicole Mitchell witnessed the murder of her father and the abduction of her sister, Jackie. Now an orphan bouncing from foster homes, in and out of juvenile detention, Nicole has been sent to Brighton Mental Institute and has spent the past 10 years locked away, enduring abuse, that cracks her already fragile psyche. Upon her release at age 18, Nicole plans to take matters into her own hands , to extract revenge on the asylum, her father's killers, find her sister and stop the flow of human trafficking within the corrupt walls of Queen City. This book is a dark, gritty goth-noir work of fiction for mature readers, in the vein of Sin City and The Crow. Everette Hartsoe's RAZOR:SCARS graphic novel will be published from Hartsoe Studios and Most Comics (Based on the story from Everette Hartsoe and Jeff Most the producer of 'The CROW')

"The visionary creation of cult legend Everette Hartsoe, Razor was his take on The Crow, a ultra violent revenge comic, centered on a female lead. After witnessing a brutal murder in her family, Nicole Mitchell becomes “Razor,” named for the steel blades strapped to her arms. In a world set almost exclusively in the back alleys of Chinatown, Razor dispatches thugs at night and helps wayward teens during the day. By far one of my favorite comic books of all time, and also one of the most overlooked. A brooding female-driven revenge saga, with a dark and finely crafted back story, Razor is like the female Batman, tormented by demons from her past she just can’t let go of .-Rebecca Rose Screenpicks.com http://screenpicks.com/2012/05/best-comic-book-heroes-without-a-movie/
THE HISTORY OF RAZOR
I created RAZOR in 1991 as a way to help deal with my depression over the death of my younger sister ( see bio ). The subject matter of a ultra-violent female vigilante turned off many publishers, so I decided to self-publish under the banner LONDON NIGHT STUDIOS. The 1st issue exceeded all expectations, which enabled me to quit the day job and draw comics full time. The flagship title, RAZOR UNCUT reached issue 51, which is a major feat for any independent comic book publisher. Between 1992-99 Razor has appeared in over 100 different publications. To this date back issues of Razor comics and cards are actively bought sold and traded on eBay and online comic retailers.
THE FUTURE OF RAZOR
Everette Hartsoe's RAZOR is currently in film development with MOST FILMS' Jeff Most ( the producer of THE CROW ). RAZOR: SCARS graphic novel will be the beginning of many more self-contained graphic novels from Everette Hartsoe .
"Razor is a very personal story to me. The type of tale that drives me into a dark corner of my mind and chokes the f@*k out of me until I submit. Razor:Scars is that submission into darkness."-Everette Hartsoe

Risks and challenges
The project is written and drawn by me, so the upfront costs are low, but this campaign will help with provide some cash flow for advertising and production costs to the colorists and graphics dept. There's not much in this project or it's incentives that are out of my control. I made sure of that so I can deliver a quality project fast. Updates will be frequent as I do like to stay in touch with my backers and let them know what is happening. Without you guys, there would be no RAZOR!
