START AGAIN Issues 1 & 2

£5,878

START AGAIN is a critically acclaimed superhero boy meets girl comic. We are now returning to print, and bringing out the ALL-NEW issue two. Last year the first issue had 350+ backers, and since then has gained critical acclaim in the comic industry.

Our story follows British superhero "Jump" as he struggles to cope with his government appointed role as the nation's saviour. 

On a wild night out he meets Natalie Brown, and their chance encounter becomes the foundations of a scandal that will have far reaching consequences for the unlikely duo.

START AGAIN combines my love of super-powered stories and influences of my real-life struggles with OCD, intrusive thoughts and anxiety. I wanted to create a story that displayed difficulties dealing with mental health while also trying to work under pressure.

Many men like myself find it extremely hard to ask for help, to even admit we need help, and I wanted to explore this in a fictional setting.

The comic is created and written by Jamie Me. Art by Toni Doya (IDW's Back to the Future). Colours are by Sean Callahan (Action Lab's Stray). Editing by Archie Dait (Queen, START AGAIN, Ani Wild).

The START AGAIN COMPANION PDF is unlocked for all backers at £3 and upwards.

STRETCH GOALS ARE LIVE!

We are proud to announce the START AGAIN Print Collection.

This Kickstarter exclusive collection is dear to the heart of our entire project because it takes us all the way back to the start. Each A4 art print features the initial concept designs of characters by Toni Doya in the START AGAIN Universe.

Every backer will get digital copies of the concept art. If you have shipping included in your tier (£10 and upwards) then you will also get a print copy included in your order.

Here is a full preview of issue #1, and your first look at the cover and pages from issue #2. Please note that the content is NSFW featuring adult content.

 All the artwork is 100% complete for both issues.

Our cover for issue #2 is by Halo: Collateral Damage (DARK HORSE) cover artist Zak Hartong. It features a certain location in Leeds City Centre...

Art by Dark Horse's "Halo" cover artist, ZAK HARTONG!

START AGAIN #2 picks up moments after the cliffhanger from the first issue, and what started as a chance encounter may define both Ajay and Natalie's lives...

Become a super-supporter, and catch-up with the START AGAIN series. We wanted to make the entire series, so far, accessible to EVERY backer of the campaign!

START AGAIN is proudly a crowdfunded series. Below is a breakdown of exactly what funding will be used for.

Thank you for any support you can give, or have previously given our project. The entire team is grateful for the opportunities you have given us!

Risks and challenges

This will be our tenth Kickstarter. We have always aimed to improve with every single campaign, and this one will be no different.

As the artwork is all 100% completed we don't have any risks in terms of delays producing the pages. All that is left to do is the lettering, and that's what I do for a living.

You can expect a high end product, shipped using quality packaging and for it to be on time.

Regardless, we will keep you informed every step of the way. In the unlikely event of a delay you will be notified immediately. We message our backers every two weeks until we have shipped the finished product.

Thank you for any support.
