Blank - The Graphic Novel on Kickstarter
This is The Brothers of The Silence, a.k.a. Ian and Implovious, coming to you from the dungeon where we’re constructing Blank — the GRAPHIC NOVEL SERIES / Movies / Games (download the complete first chapter here: Chapter 1 - A Virus for the Virus). This is our first BIG PROJECT since breaking with our publishing house. It’s finally time to attach the electrodes and bring our monster into the living world! We invite you to become a backer and make yourself a part of this project.
BLANK IS A SUPERNATURAL ADVENTURE STORY — the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters. A beleaguered hitman discovers he is mankind’s last hope. The only problem: he’s already dead! In the next world he must fight increasingly menacing monsters to make his way back to this world so that he can vanquish the terror threatening to destroy all mankind. The story has tons of monsters, a ghost, a megalomaniacal psycho killer, a love story, warring families of two cults, beautiful assassins, an extinction-level virus and much more. It is truly an adventure franchise on an epic scale.
We’re real people. We need help.
WE’RE SUCCESSFUL CREATORS. We’ve been published six times by Barnes & Noble’s publishing division. Implovious’ illustrations have appeared in Sports Illustrated and Variety, including an Emmy Awards campaign for David E. Kelley Productions. Blank is the first graphic novel in history to have launched in real-time on Facebook and Twitter. We already have a fanbase of over 100,000 beautiful people — about the population of Savannah, Georgia, and bigger than 52 countries. Book One is called “A Virus For The Virus” and has 200 pages and several posters already developed. It’s the start of something BIG. But we need your help! Blank is an epic story that MUST BE TOLD.
BLANK ON KICKSTARTER is the next natural step for us. Generally a publisher would be responsible for a $200,000+ media budget, a $100,000 printing bill, their own overhead, sales staff, warehousing and distribution expenses, leaving very little left over for the authors. This time, we want to do it differently. Your pledge will help us bypass that entire web of inflationary costs and inefficiencies. This is the future of publishing. The future begins with you.
WITH YOUR HELP, we can make this into the next big thing! Pick a reward. We’ve made it fun. You can choose to get an unlimited reward or a Limited Edition Reward, most will be signed and numbered. We’ve got rewards on either path for every budget, from $1 to $10,000 (the Kickstarter limit). You’ll get recognition, books, art and so much more! But mostly what you’ll get is our thanks for your support and our commitment to bring you the best story ever.
Choose your reward exclusivity. It’s your choice.
We’ve crafted our launch as a “Kickstarter Exclusive” with unique rewards that you will only be able to get on Kickstarter during this project and then they’ll be gone forever.
Some of you will choose Unlimited Rewards. All rewards for those who choose “Unlimited Rewards” have no quantity limits, but include special art exclusive to this project on Kickstarter until the funding period ends.
Some of you will choose Limited Edition Rewards. “Limited Edition Rewards” are signed, numbered and branded with special art, and are exclusive to this project here in limited quantities on Kickstarter until the funding period ends.
Spread the word. Support the Arts & Humanities.
Thanks to all who help and support us. We love you and we promise that however large or small your participation, it definitely makes a difference in the final product we produce.
We’re only as good as our network of friends. As soon as you support this kickstarter, PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU'VE DONE IT, AND SPREAD THE LINK FAR AND WIDE. Thank you for supporting the arts & humanities with your Kickstarter donation.
We’ll leave you with some random pages from Book One: A Virus For The Virus.
