      Hi Matt. Good question. The book is done!! I'm waiting for any additional final notes from beta readers and then the digital copy will be released ASAP. I have to go out of town for work for the rest of the week but I plan to check in within the next few days.

      Hi all,

      I'm a bit overdue for an update. Just waiting on some new color pages which I hope to share very soon. We are making progress and the book will be 88 pages of story + pinups. Final inks will be completed very soon and I have started lettering. Color may take a month or so longer but I plan to release a black and white digital version for backers who want it when it is ready. Thanks for your patience and support. I hope to have an update to all of you later this week.

      Thanks,
      Kara

      Does this look to be completed next month or in December? I'm not complaining just looking at a best guess.

      Hi Rachel,

      I am sorry to be MIA. I will post all about it in my upcoming update this week. The book is in progress. It's just taking longer than expected. Stay tuned. New update coming later tonight!

      This is a birthday present to myself and the suspense is killing me. I know you are super busy K, but how much longer do we have to wait?

      Hi Kosongz. The past two weeks of my life have been crazy. No time for anything. JC is still working on artwork though so we are progressing. I'll get an update posted soon with some new art. Hang in there!

      Hi Lance,

      Those will be going out as soon as I finish lettering issue #3 so everyone can read all 3 issues at once. I just sent a new update with more information. Check your email :)

      Have the $7 pledge rewards been sent out yet?

    22. Img_0330.small

      Creator K. Barrett on February 1, 2013

      Mark,

      The $10 get an official Thank you in the book and receive a sticker or postcard of original artwork. This is not included in the digital only tier.

    23. Missing_small

      Creator Mark on January 31, 2013

      Do the $10 pledges get the same digital offers as the $7 pledges?
      The End is Totally Nigh etc...

      Hi Kosongz,

      I'm waiting to finish lettering issue #3 so you can read them all at once. I'm hoping to send out the link in about a week or so.

      Creator Antonio Garcia on December 21, 2012

      @Scott: I have exactly the same question. Hopefully we do get the digital versions of the End is Totally Nigh since it would be a nice bonus for pushing this upwards of $15k.

    29. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Scott Rowland on December 20, 2012

      Looks good! Do tiers above $7 also get the digital versions of "THE END IS TOTALLY NIGH "?

      I just stumbled upon your campaign, watched the video and immediately wanted to read your story! It reminds me of the enjoyment found in Anne Rice's novels and my unhealthy addiction to pulp (in a good way!) 60's/70's horror comics (I was a big Dark Shadows fan). All the best with your campaign!

      Can't afford to pledge right now.. have to cut down on the amount of pledging.. so I am cancelling my pledge on the projects that are already well above their goals. I would love to keep backing this project but just need to limit things a bit. Sorry.

      I lived in Oklahoma City all my life before moving to Redmond, WA 12 years ago and you don't realize how much joy I have seeing someone from OKC working on a graphic comic and putting it on Kickstarter. I wish you the best.

      Hi Charles,
      This my project and I am the writer and creator. Yes, I am located in Oklahoma city.

      Is this project really from Oklahoma City?

      Didn't even have to look at the preview.. the subtitle alone "A Supernatural Graphic Novel Set In The 1950's" was enough to pledge at $10 tier. :)

      I've been looking for a good comic project and this is definitely it. The art is tremendous and the story is fairly unique. Just from the preview I can see you have the tone down. Good luck to you.

      That preview's absolutely perfect. I'm hooked from the start. This is the best preview I've seen for a graphic novel on kickstarter. Love the tone. Darwyn Cooke's take on Parker meets Robert Johnson at the crossroads.
