Devil Spy is a teenage human animal hybrid who spends his days removing dead bodies from apartments, making his part of the city habitable for his own kind. But the only thing he really wants is to meet a live human being. Fortunately DS gets his wish one day when he stumbles upon a chubby teenager named Wyatt. The two quickly form a strong bond, and set out on a quest to find Wyatt's missing sister.

Devil Spy has a mix of sci fi, post apocalyptic, and adventure elements but it's mostly a story about loyalty and friendship. I started Devil Spy way back in July of 2014 and have been eagerly anticipating a time when I had enough pages to publish a graphic novel. That time is now, but I need your help to do it! Color printing is VERY expensive and I can't afford the cost on my own. I've successfully published two graphic novels previously; Willem and Split Screen, with your support on Kickstarter. I'm hoping you will lend your support again for Devil Spy.

My plan for the book:

A paperback book printed in full color. The webcomic pages are 6"x9" and the book will likely be the same size as my previous 2 books (6.5"x9.25"). The book will collect chapters 1-6 of the Devil Spy series and will include the 10 page prologue. There are seven chapter title pages and I'm planning to include a Q & A section, fan art, concept sketches and some series fun facts. I estimate the book will be around 105 pages.

Devil Spy is a series that is near and dear to my heart. I love Devil Spy and Wyatt so much and I really want to see this book become a reality! Please check out the rewards below and support the project where you can, and if you're able, please help spread the word! Thank you so much for taking the time to read about Devil Spy!

 First stretch goal announcement:

$3500: If the campaign reaches this amount, I will make soft enamel Devil Spy and Wyatt pins and send them out to everyone who pledged $25+! The designs are pending, but it will be chibi versions of DS and Wyatt, so 2 pin designs and you'll have a choice between which one you want. Below is an example of a DS chibi and a random enamel pin I found online, so I think you'll understand what I'm aiming for. :) Enamel pins require a simplified design so the chibi will look a little different, but personally I have some enamel pins which are pretty detailed so I assure you it will be super cute and rad! If the campaign reaches $3600, I will send both the DS AND Wyatt chibi pins to everyone who pledged $25+.

 

Risks and challenges

This is my third graphic novel Kickstarter campaign and I feel confident that I can deliver high quality books to you in a timely fashion. Of course, there can always be unforeseen problems that occur but I will do my best to work around them. The Devil Spy pages require a lot less touching up than Split Screen and Willem did so I am really hopeful that I can get these books printed and shipped to you much sooner than the six month deadline.
