About this project

“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 murderer, 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.

STYLE

"The action scenes are filled with quirky side jokes and goofs. With the electric art style of Lazymills and conflictingly emotional toned situations, the lively pace of the story will not let you rest as there are surprises around each corner. With all of the depth in a character and funny moments making you feel safe, It's the sudden eruption of butt whoopings that wake you up.... The best part of waking up is "the whoopings of the butt". The fight scenes are cleverly unorthodox. The humor is dry and quirky. While the plot and character motives are dark and grey, there is always a beam of color reminding you that life is still in progress." ~Lazymills

GOAL

To make Violator Union come to life in the form of a comic book. (Both volume 1 and volume 2) We want to be able to order at least 200 books ready for this year, but if we can make it 1000 copies, VOLUME 3 and 4 of VU will be next for a debut. A stretch goal is to have volumes 1,2,3&4 made into one hardcover book. THAT WOULD ROCK!

WHERE DOES FUNDING GO?

I do need to stay alive and fed while i'm getting the book finished. Funding will cover the artists, Lazymills and her assistants, as they work on the comic as well as the preparations for the years comic conventions. It will cover the cost of printing, shipping, and polishing the books. It will cover the cost of ads, banners, convention booths, displays, website space; VU merchandise will also be covered to further build onto the VU world. T-shirts, buttons, posters, and funny shorts that will be posted on the ViolatorUnion Youtube channel for free viewing. the stretch goal is to do a full length animation.

Risks and challenges

Hi, this is Lazymills. Currently, I am the only artist able to work on both line art and writing for the comic but the goal is to have the pages in full color. For that, I've got one the best colorists I could ask for standing by. If the campaign fails, it will be tough to do it without him polishing it up all pretty like. On top of that, is the plans of taking the books to conventions for it's debut. It would be our goal to have the book completed in time for this, but also to have enough to have shops keep a number of for sale.

The biggest risk, however, is that I may need to divide my time between work and the pages. If that is ever the case, there will be a shift on to another artist who will work their magic as i direct. I don't plan on that happening, but worst case scenario...

If this VU Kickstarter campaign is successful, I will likely do another Kickstarter campaign for the animated pilot of VU.

so lets do this. LETS VIOLATE THIS JOINT?
