Risks and challenges

The risk potential for this project is very low as the artwork for the comic is completely finished, by the end of this campaign we'd be able to put the print order through. So this is essentially a pre-order system.

This is our 9th Kickstarter campaign, all our previous campaigns have been fulfilled ahead of our deadlines.

We post daily on our social media pages to show you the progress we are making on this project every single day. Check it out!
