“What if the power to destroy or change the world was given to irrational criminals?”

The Cowan Nation is oppressed under a dictatorship. Drug-users called “Tainters” litter the world with problems, and bounty hunters are hired to enforce the law.

The land has been divided into districts, which are run by governors who claim the districts like mafia lords.

Violator Union follows the group of four recklessly horrible criminals and their giant dog. The story focuses on the group’s thief, Leara, and the killer, T.A., who possess mysterious powers that make them the prime target of hunters, rebels, and the government.

They all set out on a journey together to find a rumored paradise as they rob, murder, kidnap, fight bounty hunters, and avoid being captured by the government.

If they don’t end up killing each other, they may just find a way to paradise.

GOAL

We already have book 1 nearly finished and will be going on to book 2 and have them printed if it is funded. The goal is to publish book 1 and 2 both together, total pages being 48. It will be Funding will cover distribution. Having VU in stores around the US. Funding will also be used in bringing the team to comic and game conventions in more than one state, where we will have booths setup with VU books and merchandise. The team is already prepared to dive into the animated production of the series, and funding will allow us to get right to the animated shorts. The shorts will be made available for free viewing on the Violator Union Channel and they will also be the vital installment for the steps towards the continued full animated series. Funding of the books and the exposure of the books will aid in developing the brand, animated series, and games. There are 12 books planned, so if we exceed expectations, more books will be made to reveal the Violator Union world.

We will likely be doing Kickstarters in the future for the Violator Union animated series and possible game.

WHERE DOES FUNDING GO?

Funding will cover the artists and writers. Conventions. Printing, shipping, distribution, and polishing the books. Animated shorts, as well. Further funding will go to marketing and VU merchandise: T-shirts, buttons, posters, and toy models. All the things to give us convention presence. 

IF GOAL ISN'T REACHED

If we do not meet our goal completely, book 2 and all of the animations will not be available to audiences. There will be no game. There will be no 12 books coming soon to a store near you. It will not have a presence at comic con. Violator Union book one will not be fully realized. They won't be printed. People who may like the story won't get to see it from start to end.

Please Share or Fund... or both. Both would be super tactic.

Risks and challenges

As you may have seen, the VU project was campaigned on Kickstarter before. It was unsuccessful. We've learned since then, to give more information and more about the story so that the audience can REALLY get the feel of what the story is about. The last time, VU came across as something that wasn't completely realized and the delivery lacked focus. We touched only very lightly on the world of VU. So lightly that it was difficult for viewers to feel like they could be a part of the world. Also being that the amount of funds expected in the last campaign may have been a bit high for a project you may not have realized was fully thought out, we have lowered the goal and revealed more of what we already have waiting to be expanded. We also have better updates and news regarding VU and the mission to bring it to conventions.

The challenge is getting this prepared and available this year for more than the internet crowd. To expand the VU world into other formats, the comics funding is essential. So the first step being the comic and by helping pilot it's exposure, you will be the regarded largely as VU's most important contributors. We are prepared to move forward no matter the struggle, but funding is needed in order to move this out to the world in this life time.

We want to thank you for all of your support. So THANKS!
