THANK YOU GUYS FOR YOUR SUPPORT! 

WE DID IT! This fully colored comic book is complete and ready to be PRINTED! 

But we still need your help to actually get it printed!

See you at San Diego Comic Con!

Come hangout with the Ninja Knockouts, a group of badass ladies from California and Texas as they solve a mystery on the back-lots of the studio! 

Hello! I'm Krystle Starr, I have had the most amazing experiences at conventions over the past 8 years! I’ve been working for other people in the industry for the past several years and now I'm finally coming out and doing this comic for my friends and myself for once! There is a reason the universe brought Remy & Sam into my life! Finally decided to make the jump… let’s see if we can FLY!

This process has taken some time, but along the way, we as a team have learned so many new and wonderful things! I definitely psyched myself out many times thinking I wasn’t capable of creating a comic book! THEN last summer I got a chance to show a few pages to Stan Lee while working on a small project with his team in California. He told me he wasn’t sure anyone would like Spiderman… That was it, that was my “Magic Moment” (and that is why one of the reward Stickers is a picture of Sam & myself with the GREAT Stan The Man Lee!). Issue One is a beautiful steppingstone for my work! This set will be a four book project! I love writing new characters because I tend to put a little of my friends in each one! MAYBE YOU WILL BE NEXT!?!?!?

Making the comic was the fun part! Printing seems to be insanely hard! Now I know why there are so many starving artists! I was invited as a guest at SDCC very last minute as this first book had just been completed! I happily walked into the printing shop in Dallas expecting to have my order placed when I walked out… When I got the quote back I almost fainted… When I heard the number they quoted, my full heart hit the floor! My skin turned green and my tummy turned into knots. I knew there was no way I could find that kind of cash in two days! Then a light-bulb! KICKSTARER! So many companies do pre-sales first to successfully fund the printing!  I hope enough of you will enjoy the art and the characters and join our Ninja Knockouts family to support our Project. 

Meet our Ninja Knockouts TEAM!

 THE CREATIVE TEAM 

Remy- 

THIS man IS the MAGIC! The man behind the pen, the creator of all badassery things! 

Remy has been drawing and making animations in sunny California forever! Please check out some of his older work on YouTube at Dirtbagtoons! His passion for the Knockouts is the biggest blessing! We call him, "The Fastest Pen of The West!" His sense of humor and keen eye for the nerd culture shows throughout his drawings! Be sure to look for hidden gems and Easter eggs!

Krystle -

I’ve worked on many projects ranging from films, TV, video games and apps. I’ve been on the cover of comics before, but this will be my first time WRITING ONE! Grew up reading Marvel on the ranch in Texas. Got in trouble at school for writing and drawing comics with friends instead of paying attention. I guess it’s all starting to pay off! I take all the background photos. This story is loosely based off truth… LOOSELY… I hope you enjoy my friends and our new adventures! 

Sam- 

Horror Movie Junkie. Has a love hate relationship with humans, can tolerate Remy, KStarr (Krystle) & Bae Kay! Loves watching comic cons from a far. Too much anxiety to actually go to one… Maybe one of these days… Grew up in Hollywood Hills, chills in Malibu these days or at the skate-park in Venice Beach. Sam is a fantastic artist, Remy has taught her so much these past years! 


REWARDS!

For $99 YOU can be a Space Soldier in issue #2!  

This is a rough sketch of what the outfit will look like. 

Your character will not have speaking lines at this reward level, however we do offer that with other reward levels. 

Kay rockin' our PIN SET on her white hat. 

Kay will soon have her own pin! 

Cutest model ever!

It is EXTRA special that we are having our launch for San Diego Comic Con's 50th! This is actually where we first meet many years back! It is always one of our favorite times of the year! We are so happy to be sharing this experience with YOU!

We also have a *hidden scanner* placed in each book that leads you to a *secret site!* 

With extra *sexy mysteries* to solve with the girls! 

Oh yeah... a taste of Issue TWO!

That's right! We are already working on issue TWO! sneak peek! 

But shhhhhh! Don't tell anyone! 


Kick back and enjoy the summer with Ninja Knockouts! 

Thank you for your epic support!

Risks and challenges

I will say that our hopes are to get the first book back and in the mail but the end of September but I will be REAL with you guys I have cons for a lot of the summer so worst case you will get this package in October at the latest! This will actually be a great thing for ME because this means not only did we meet our goal… WE WENT OVER and had to buy extra books! THIS IS WHAT I WANT!
