The project

We are launching this kickstarter campaign to help us with the creation and production of the second volume of our graphic novel series; Far Out.

Originally, our cowbot aesthetic was only a cool concept created by Olivier for apparel and prints, but the more we showed the art to people, the more we were asked for an actual comic series!

So we created the weekly webcomic Far Out, which tells the story of a newly arrived robot amidst this funny and weird robotic western civilization. Although our series is packed with action, we're also careful about building a coherent universe around our cowbot concept, always with great respect and admiration for Leone’s spaghetti westerns.

Two years after publishing our first webcomic page online, we now have our first 80 pages book printed, published by Studio Lounak. It is already available in bookstores, and the feedback we are getting from readers is great. So great that only a month after our first print run, we might already have to go to reprint!

Since 2012, we could only work part time on this project, creating one page of art per week. Being comic book readers ourselves, we know how frustrating the wait for an upcoming issue or trade can be, that's why we want to release Far Out vol.02 as fast as possible! In order to do that, however, we need time, and that’s where you guys can help.

What will we do with the money?

We will use most of the money to free our schedule and work on the project on a more regular basis, but still, a third of our budget will go towards incentives production.

- 14% of the budget will go towards incentives production
- 63% will go towards art creation
- 13% will go towards writing
- 10% will go to Kickstarter and fees

Can I see what you have done so far?

Off course you can! And we will be publishing a new page of the second volume regularly from now on! You can follow the story at :
www.faroutcomic.com

The print
A little 6.5 x 10 original giclée print, signed by the creators, that every Sergio Leone (and Far Out!) fan are sure to enjoy!

The t-shirt
The t-shirts, made in Canada, are available in woman and men sizes. They are printed on ethica fabrics made of 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton.

The fine art print
The fine art print is a 17 x 22, 100% cotton fiber, acid-free base paper, with a new original drawing by Olivier, portraying a day-to-day scene straight out of the Far Out universe.

The commission
Olivier will draw an original 11x17 ink wash commission for every perks of 180$ and more! Here's an example  :

The scultpure
Yes! For real! Limited edition sculptures of our hero, Murphy, just for you! We will post more updates about the production process during the campaing.

Your cowbot design in the book!
Get your hands on one of the few chances we give you to submit your own cowbot design to Olivier, which will be part of a village scene at the beginning of the second volume of Far Out :

 Stretch Goals!!!

If we reach our 15000$ before March 1st, we will produce a new 6.5 x 10 print every 2000$ until 21,000$!

- For the first 2,000$ over, every 45$ or more pledge will get a print by the amazing Caroline Breault !
- For the second 2,000$ over, every 65$ ore more pledge will get a print by the great Andy Bélanger !
- For the third 2,000$ over, every 100$ ore more pledge will get a print by the amazing Karl Kerschl !

Risks and challenges

Having been around the comic book and crowd funding world for a while, we know how complex the creation and shipping of incentives to every backers can be. That's why we teamed up with Studio Lounak to help us manage this aspect of our campaign and make sure our incentives and books get into our backers hands on time, and in good shape.

Far Out vol.02's new pages will be published regularly (normally Wednesdays on KimiQ.com) starting now, so you will always be able to follow the production of the art and the evolution of our story, even when the campaign is over.
