Evil Inc is a daily comic strip about a corporation that's run by supervillains. It follows the daily lives of supervillains — and one superhero who happens to be married to one. The purpose of this Kickstarter campaign is to raise the funds to print the 9th graphic-novel adaptation of the strip in book form.

If you love comics — or even if you haven't read 'em since you were a kid — you're going to love seeing that world through the distorted lens of Evil Inc.

WAIT -- WHAT'S A "GRAPHIC-NOVELIZATION" OF A COMIC STRIP?!

This is something that I think makes the Evil Inc books really special. Instead of the usual printed collection of comic strips, I take the individual panels of the strips and design comic-book-style pages. I add content and panels that haven't been seen before to smooth out the narrative and make it a cohesive story. Here... take a look...

The result is a fantastic, continuous reading experience with a rapid-fire sense of humor.

SO, TELL ME ABOUT THIS VOLUME

Artistically, this volume represents a period of time when I think I was starting to hit my stride as an illustrator. I'm really proud of the visual appeal of these pages.

And the stories? The book is peppered with short standalone story arcs — like these moments between Captain Heroic and his son...

...and stories about Cap and Miss Match when they were a young couple...

Plus... longer storylines with driving plots like the heist of the Ruby of Ragnoor

When the mystical Ruby winds up in Miss Match's hands, a mis-worded wish has unintended results!

And, throughout the 112-page book, my dumb sense of humor.

GET TO THE REWARDS!

I've got some tremendous ways to reward your generous support of this project! Beyond the book itself, there's previous volumes, tons of original art, special Artist Edition books (in which I do a special drawing in your book just for you), and more!

Risks and challenges

Having done two previous Kickstarter campaigns, I have a realistic concept of how long it takes to print the book and then get it out to my supporters. I have adjusted my target dates accordingly, and I'm confident that this project will be delivered on smoothly.
