HexComix : Next Level Launch
Take HexComix to the next level! Fund the printing of the Hex11 Volume One trade and each issue of Volume Two!
Who We Are/What We Do
HexComix is a Los Angeles-based comic book label. We are proud to be a 100% nerd girl-run operation, changing the world through creative ideas and compelling characters. Nominees of the Dwayne McDuffie Award for Diversity, HexComix is devoted to showcasing non-traditional voices and telling unique stories. We are currently dedicated to our premiere title, Hex11, an ongoing series created and illustrated by Lisa K. Weber, written by Kelly Sue Milano, and produced/edited by Lynly Forrest.
In the world of Hex11, humans, through the discovery of a new energy source called The Ether, have found they are capable of Magic. As civilization moves from the Digital Age to this new Magic Age, the corporatocracy is concealing what they know, seeing an opportunity for a new level of control and unprecedented monetary gain.
Meanwhile, a class war is brewing in the urban underworld known as The Hex; where the have-nots have found themselves after years of injustice and oppression. It also serves as a haven for the magically inclined, a place where they can operate in secret.
One such woman is Elanor Kent, a young witch living in the Hex and apprenticing the eccentric Vera, a very powerful oracle. Though she aspires to master the many facets of magic, she finds herself practicing basics and running Vera's errands. However, when one seemingly ordinary task places her in the crossfire of a black market warlock and a demonic mercenary, the excitement she had hoped for becomes all too real and all too dangerous…

Up until now, we have self-funded a full year and a full volume of Hex11. Though we've been even more successful than anticipated, we have learned in that process that taking HexComix to the next level requires capital, and that's where you come in. Your contributions will help us to:
- Print a large quantity (min. 1000) of the Volume One Trade of Hex11, which is the first 6 issues bound together.
- Print individual issues of Volume Two. Issues 7-12 are mapped out and in the pipeline. We want to bring more story to you as soon as possible!
- Aid in our continued presence on the Comic Con circuit. There's nothing we love more than meeting our fans and giving the people what they want!
By supporting this project, you will not only help us to fund the continuation of Hex11, but the growth of HexComix as a label.
Special Thanks to Jeff Yaroslow and Casey Gates for their help making our awesome video!
Risks and challenges
You're in luck! We have been publishing independently for a year and have an established fan base with built-in demand.
As such, we have a track record of successfully delivering each issue of Volume One on a consistent schedule.
We have strong relationships with our printing and merchandising vendors, plus experience confronting the various challenges of being a small self-publishing entity.
We've built a business infrastructure to ensure our success. This is evident by our aggressive Comic Con schedule, our thriving Comixology relationship, and our webstore: HexComix.com
The next six issues of Volume Two are under way. Delivery is imminent!
