STRETCH GOAL

We are going to use the stretch goal to attempt to go debt-free on the project. To make the goal achievable we had to take on £600 ourselves. Anything after our funding goal will go towards paying off that debt.

Thank you again for supporting the project, and we can't wait until everyone gets to read Queen #1 and #2.

We have THREE digital guest comics that are creator-owned to unlock. Once we hit the percentages above they will be made available! (BACKERS-ONLY)

60% UNLOCK:

Replicator Issue #1 available to all backers now (click here).

An action thriller that intertwines enhanced humans and cutting edge technology set in a plague ravaged England.

80% UNLOCK:  

Hard Wyred Issue #1 available to all backers now (click here).

A virus attack hits in an online world as one man seeks to redeem himself in this sci-fi adventure.

100% UNLOCK:  

R:ILPERSONA Episode One available to all backers now (click here).

In a post apocalyptic future, a young assassin with extraordinary abilities awakens with amnesia, finding himself in the middle of a global conflict.

Why am I creating Queen?

"In 2013 I began therapy for an anxiety disorder called Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. One of my coping mechanisms was to come up with stories about confronting some of the things I was afraid of like corruption, inequality and the consequences of actions.

Could these be your next comics?
Could these be your next comics?

After gaining confidence, making steps towards stability in my life, I began to want to develop what I had daydreamed about for so long. I taught myself how to letter comics, and saved up money from gigs to pay Bernard Gita and Sean Callahan to work on a script I'd written. This comic is the result of my journey from struggling to leave my home, washing my hands up to 25 times a day, to attempting to live out a life long goal of creating stories."

- Jamie Me

With your backing we can continue making Queen. Every back will help give us momentum towards reaching our goal!

What is the comic about?

Emily Green is a struggling politician. She is the second-in-command of the British government, but her personal life is falling apart, she doesn't believe in the political system anymore and she is preparing to quietly step down from her position after the upcoming General Election.

Hactivist group 'Nidus', known for releasing leaked documents to the general public, have greater plans for the Deputy Prime Minister.

What the comic critics are saying about Queen.
What the comic critics are saying about Queen.

Jump into the Queen universe that Graphic Policy's Brett Schenker, who works in politics, describes as "about as authentic as you can get."

Why do we need Kickstarter?

We successfully crowdfunded issue one of Queen, and we sent out physical copies to our backers. What we have returned to Kickstarter for is to raise funds to finish colouring issue two, and to send the first two parts to print.

Kickstarter Cost Breakdown

Above is a breakdown of the costs for this Kickstarter campaign. Thank you so much for checking out our campaign, and any and all support you, the Kickstarter community, give us is much appreciated.

Risks and challenges

One of the risks that any comic Kickstarter has is delays in production. We have taken major steps to avoid this by completing the drawing phase (pencils and inks) before crowdfunding begins. We now only have to complete the colouring stage, and Sean Callahan is already in the process of completing this step.

I have also ran five successful Kickstarters now, and I will use my experiences to make this campaign as smooth as possible. I have a local comic shop, Inter-Comics, helping with the shipping phase, and all of the goods go out bagged, boarded and in durable packing you would expect from a top-end online retailer. I take shipping seriously, and getting your goods to you in mint condition is something I pride myself on.

You can also ASK ME ANYTHING about the campaign by messaging me on here. I will get back to you ASAP.
