"It's been 2 weeks since the incident at the Statue of Liberty...and with Lazerman out of action, people have begun to wonder if the incident was a hoax. Now, Lazerman is ready to re-appear to the public...just as New York finds itself under attack by a legion of Zombies! Is Lazerman rested enough to handle a horde of the undead? And what dark force is manipulating this cadaverous cadre of cantankerous corpses?? The Night of the Necrolord...has begun!"
What is Lazerman?
Lazerman is an all-ages comic about a comicbook geek who accidentally ends up with real superpowers. Last November, we sucessfully kickstarted "Lazerman: This Man, This Lazer" which collected the first four issues of the series (Volume 1). With this campaign, we intend to produce Volume 2, "Night of the Necrolord" , which will collect issues 5-7 of the series, picking right up where volume 1 left off. This trade paperback will be 100 pages, and will also include behind the scenes material, and several Lazerman bonus stories...short comics never before in print!
Like our first collection, NOTN is it's own, self contained story arc, following Lazerman's continuing adventures. Also, like it's predecessor, The story is all-ages appropriate...meaning for perhaps the first time anywhere, you can share the excitement of a zombie apocalypse with your kids (this may be the only family-friendly zombie story out there..seriously.)
This story is one of our favorites. With Lazerman's back story and character introductions out of the way, we are able to dive right into the good stuff,,,in fact, in alot of ways, we feel like NOTN is almost a better introduction to Lazerman than volume 1 was.
So if you contributed to our last campaign, and enjoyed Volume 1 of Lazerman, please support volume 2 to continue Lazeman's adventures! If you haven't, please consider this a great jumping on point. Several of our rewards include the first tradepaperback, to get you caught up!

Risks and challenges
We are looking for funds to produce a full, high-quality offset print run of Lazerman: Volume 2: Night of the Necrolord.
As with any small press, self publishing venture...coming up with capital up front is always a problem. Between running thew business, paying it's bills, and keeping all our distribution channels open enough that people can actually GET the books we make...it makes it very difficult to finance a print run, when so much of the cost is up front.
With our previous kickstarter, we learned alot....we had never been through the process of printing through offset, or at such a large scale. We now understand the process, and what is needed, and expected of us. We've even found a printing partner that can produce a lower quantity, and still keep the price reasonable.
And even more importantly, the material for the majority of the trade paperback is already finished! Issues 5, 6, and 7 are completed, and sitting on our hard drive...the only work that remains is finalizing the covers and some of the bonus material. The main obstacle for us is coming up with the funds upfront to go into production. With your help, we can smash through that barrier...and get Lazerman's continuing adventures into your hands.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
