Under New Management, the new Evil Inc graphic novel

$17,094

345

Since we reached our funding in the first two weeks, I'm thrilled to announce our first Stretch Goal — Hardcovers!

Evil Inc is a comic about a corporation that's run by super-villains. It was launched in 2005 as a comic strip, and then relaunched in 2016 as an online graphic novel. This new book — "Evil Inc: Under New Management" — collects the first two years of that relaunch. Here are the details:

  • Softcover
  • 96 pages
  • Full-color
  • 8½ x 11 inches

SO, TELL ME ABOUT THIS BOOK

After doing Evil Inc as a continuous comic strip for over ten years, I decided it was time to reimagine the concept. Along with the change from comic strip to comic book, I decided to restart the storyline and the characters as well. The result was a vast improvement in writing along with the visual storytelling. In short, I think it's some of my strongest comics work in my 18 years of professional art.

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.

ADD-ONS!

If you'd like to help us towards our goal, you can increase your pledge now and apply the extra funds to your order after the campaign is over.

Just go to the Kickstarter page, click Manage My Pledge, and increase the dollar amount. But don't change your reward tier! This is especially important if you have a reward that is now closed-out — like the Early Bird Special!

Remember... you can change that pledge right up until the end of the Kickstarter campaign.

Use this handy chart to determine how much you should add on to your pledge!

WHAT'S THE "AFTER DARK" DIGITAL EDITION?

Every once in a while, the Evil Inc storyline got too steamy for my public website and had to be continued as part of the exclusive NSFW content I offer on Patreon. (The page below was one such instance.) The digital "After Dark" Edition of Under New Management will pair the Evil Inc storylines with their After Dark counterparts.

This reward is for people 18+, please.

Risks and challenges

This will be my fifth Kickstarter project, and I'm confident about my ability to fulfill this project. But I do know that surprises can pop up along the way — both in production and in fulfillment. Should any problems or delays arise with the this book book, backers can expect to be kept well-informed with regular updates until the problem is addressed.
