About this project

Over the last 6 1/2 years, I have been doing work on an original character called White Ninja Guy. He began as a simple doodle on a sheet of paper that I kept for some reason. After sometime, I stumbled across this sheet of paper after clamoring trying to figure out an idea for a new superhero. The rest was history after that. I came up with some ideas for other characters, but when they didn't work out, I always ended back up with White Ninja Guy. Back in 2010, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to self-publish my first anthology comic called White Ninja Guy #0:One Shot. I went to conventions to sell this book, with a bit of success. Now finally after more polishing of my artwork, and the lack of support of other projects I have tried to bring to life through my independent comic studio, Obsidian Studios, I thought it was time to reintroduce White Ninja Guy.

What is the Project?

White Ninja Guy Saga... White Ninja Guy Sage Miniseries is a 6 part comedy action adventure comic series for general audiences. The story is about a 4'10 white ninja born of a 'noble' bloodline who is the greatest ninja warrior in ALL existence. He is a hero, and the protector of Earth that no one cares about, knows about, or let alone knows even exists. In Issue one, White Ninja Guy is reintroduced in a comedic origin story, where he tells of his amazing feats and where he comes from.

What are the funds going to be used for?

The cash will be used for a limited 500 print run of White Ninja Guy Saga #1 which is to be released in October of 2012, and putting together the rest of the mini series in a graphic novel format. This project is a labor of love for myself, and so i am the writer, artist, and creator of this entire story. I am not getting paid for any of the work done. However, there are others who are involved that will need to be paid. These are my cover artists for variants, my graphic designer, printing costs, convention costs, and also production toward the next issue of the saga. My goal is to get this book into the hands of as many people as possible to bring lighthearted action and fun amidst all the gloomy dark anti hero comics out today. I want to use this flagship character to launch other future projects that I have in the works through Obsidian Studios.

What do you get for contributing?

The contributions to this Kickstarter campaign is more of a pre-sale campaign for the project upon release. The penciling stage is near completion, and we are hoping to get the comic done and released in time for Alternative Press Expo Convention in San Francisco this year in 2012. The rewards for helping me reach this goal are in the form of copies of the comic book, Kickstarter Only rewards, posters, original artwork, and possibly your likeness in the book.

What happens if you don't make your goal?

This is an all or nothing Kickstarter Campaign. That means, that if I do not make my goal, I don't get a single dime toward this project. Now I said before that this project is going to happen no matter what. However, my artists, and graphic designer that wants to be paid will get paid much much later, and things will be stalled. This is not a good thing to have happen if I want to see this book released in time for conventions. So I am imploring you to not only contribute if you can, but also spread the word about this project to your friends and family and see if they can help out. It's a book that ALL AGES can enjoy, and is a project that will help me realize the dream I have had ever since I have picked up a pencil and started drawing comic books. So thank you all so very much!
