Salt City Strangers: is a book about Utah pop culture, urban legends, and the things that go bump in the night. New backers might want to start with: "The story so far..."
The Strangers began as a "yeah, I'll do that someday" idea among friends. It grew into a challenge to see if we could in fact get a comic book off the ground.
To date, that tongue-in-cheek joke has spawned 4 issues, many visits to comic-cons, cosplay, and even a live improv show. Soon (with your help) we'll have 3 more issues (at least.)
Your support is helping make Hoffmangler Studios l.l.c. a launchpad for up-and-coming artists to showcase their talents and start their comic book industry career.
With the completion of the fifth book, we will be able to collect the story into one graphic novel and start talking to distributors about carrying the book nationwide.

Risks and challenges
If unforeseen challenges arise after the project successfully funds, we will be transparent with our backers with exactly what has happened and what we intend to do about it. The biggest obstacle could be if I or the artist, get so busy at work that drawing the book gets delayed. I will address that by taking vacation if need be to complete this book. Our plan is to continue Salt City Strangers as a series and to do that, we can't disappoint our fans!
We've already successfully finished issue #1 on our own, and #2, #3, and #4 with a successful Kickstarters, so we're very familiar with the process and how everything works from ordering to fulfillment. Our team member Josh has also has success on Kickstarter and has warned us of possible pitfalls.
Salt City Strangers is a labor of love that we have fun doing regardless. We just want everyone along for the ride.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
