The following artists have created 25 amazing, all-new stories for New World!

Iron Circus' classic bonus model will be in full effect with New World!

This pre-order event will determine the bonus pay of New World's creators. They've already earned a page rate for their contributions, but the more money this Kickstarter makes, the more money they'll receive!  

  • If the Kickstarter reaches $20,000, each contributor/team will collect an extra $50.00
  •  If the Kickstarter reaches $25,000, each contributor/team will collect an extra $100.00
  •  If the Kickstarter reaches $30,000, each contributor/team will collect an extra $150.00
  •  If the Kickstarter reaches $35,000, each contributor/team will collect an extra $200.00
  •  If the Kickstarter reaches $40,000, each contributor/team will collect an extra $250.00.

 And so on! There is no cap on artist bonuses!

 And stretch goals? We got 'em.

 If this project reaches $25,000 in funding, it will unlock a limited edition alternative cover by Benjamin Dewey, author of The Tragedy Series and artist of Tooth & Claw!

 If New World achieves $35,000 in funding, I'll be able to offer hardcover editions!

At $45,000, I'll be able to publish hardcovers of Benjamin Dewey's variant cover! There will only be 50 of these! 

 Our final stretch goal is a tarted-up paperback edition of New World. I'm thinkin' foil? Maybe spot gloss?

I don't blame ya!

Here are some excerpts from New World, just a fraction of the 300+ pages already made and ready to publish!

Risks and challenges

This is Iron Circus Comics' SEVENTH Kickstarter comic project. Five of our previous projects have been fulfilled and completed, and the sixth is half-completed. Our track record speaks for itself!

There's always the danger of past-due fulfillment, printing disasters, and other small hurdles. But rest assured: this ain't our first rodeo.
