UPDATE #1 - STRETCH GOALS UNLOCKED
UPDATE #2 - REVIEW BY "WE THE NERDY"
321: Fast Comics is a comic book series published by Felipe Cagno and his label Timberwolf Entertainment where some of today's biggest comic book artists take up the challenge of producing short stories with:
1 Twist Ending
As long as the above rules are in place, anything goes. Artists are more than welcome to try different styles, different techniques and a myriad of genres to tell "321" stories.
Volume 1 was Kickstarted earlier this year with help of 239 backers and is now heading towards New York Comic Con for another debut event.
And if you are wondering what people thought of the first book, look no further, here are some reviews about the first 321: Fast Comics:
"Just jam-packed with so many pages of good comics." -- Ain't It Cool News
"4.5 out of 5 stars!" -- comicbooked.com
"Brims with talented artists and with a neat premise..." -- The Spire
"It’s a high concept idea that gets knocked out of the park." -- The Outhousers
"Im really in love with the concept!" -- Black, White and Read All Over
"A fantastic and stylish collection which I’d wholeheartedly recommend to any comic lover." -- We The Nerdy
Well... we are BACK with the second volume of the series!
With more stories, a lot more pages and an even bigger roster of top artists!

Because Volume 2 will be that much bigger, I thought I would have some very talented writers helping me out as well. I'm proud to present the team of writers joining me on the "321"challenge:
Estevão Ribeiro / Pietro Proggetti / Luis Henrique Garavello / Pedro Sampaio
Marcelo Maiolo / Carlos Estefan / Raphael Fernandes / Daniel Esteves
Alex Mir / Renato Almeida / Gustavo Borges / Ben Shiffin

Much like the Brazilian edition where we reached every Stretch Goal we had, here's hoping we get to knock a few of them out of the park for the international edition as well.
We have some very exciting goals planned that include extra pages, an exclusive dust-jacket by superstar Matteo de Longis, a brand new "321" story by rising duo Gustavo Borges & Herbert Berbert and even an ADDED 12-page COMIC BOOK!!
Please help us spread the word on the web! Tweet about it, post it on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, anything really helps a ton!

Risks and challenges
You've probably backed projects before here on Kickstarter or some other crowdfunding platform, I know I have and it's a business model that works if the creators are as passionates as the backers.
I am, and always will be.
Crowdfunding works for me, I love it, not because we get to fund a personal project, but because we get to directly connect to an audience. This will always trump pre-orders or other professional means to market a product and that's because it is personal.
This will be sixth crowdfunding campaign and project. So far I've been five for five and I count on you to not break that streak. The risks are many and there is never a guarantee for success in entertainment, let alone with a comic book, but having done this before, I hope to lean on experience to keep problems to a minimum.
I strongly believe that, with your support, this will be the best Kickstarter / crowdfunding campaign I've run so far. What about it, let's do it together?
