"Many works out there deal with the event itself. The cataclysm raining hell down on the helpless people. Violence and gore are aplenty in such works. We’ve all read that. Now while Warren Hope does include these things, the book in general encompasses so much more than just the savage in of itself. Especially our protagonist. What was life like for her before all that room in Hell opened a maw upon the earth? What does she do to deal with the current circumstances? Does she lose herself along the way or does she tough it out? These questions and more are what await you by supporting this work!"

             - Jeff Aultman, The Grand Geek Gathering

Over the past year I was able to write, illustrate, and publish 5 issues of an ongoing series of comic books. The series is called The Warren Hope.
(read issues 1 and 2 for free here)

The Warren Hope is a study. How we deal with loss, hope, fear, and trust. All this from the point of view of Clara, a young woman who went from taking care of children to being a survivalist, fight for her life and the lives of others.

 

 

This Kickstarter is to help me bundle all 5 issues into one book, a 120 page book to be exact! That's where I need your help. Through this campaign I'll be able to not just publish a large amount of the books, but also get the story out there to more readers.

The story is there, the art is done, I will fix some of the minor spelling and grammar errors that slipped through before.

I also plan on publishing a compendium to go along with the book. I'm calling it the Compendium of the Supernatural, Divine, and the Damned. This comic book sized compendium will have a special cover designed specifically for the Kickstarter and will offer readers more insight into the various things going on in The Warren Hope that raise questions, like "What exactly are fiends?"

 

 

Risks and challenges

Luckily all pages for the book are ready to go, so we aren't waiting on that! The biggest risk would be that there ends up being some problem with the printer as we make the books. You will all be along the ride with me as we go through the various stages of the process, when the proof comes in to when we get the whole shipment!
The other steps that may prove difficult are when I ship to people outside of the US. I will do whatever I can to accommodate. Once again, communication will be key.
We're in this together!
