Charles McFitzgerald, AKA Chip McFitz, is a reporter for the Los Angeles Trombone.
Thanks to a diet of coffee and cigarettes, McFitz has managed to operate without sleep for years. As a result, his fried mind is always hunting for the next big story -- one that will blow this city wide open!
Just as long as his caffeine and nicotine levels are maintained - after all this time, who knows what would happen if he finally did fall asleep...
Chip McFitz: A Dame in Starlights is a 24 page, A5 full colour comic book.
When movie producer Jerry Schoonmaker is found dead at the wheel in the Hollywood hills, Chip McFitz is sent to do a simple write-up of a celebrity DUI. Instead, he pulls at the thread of clues - as well as his own sanity - to seek out the truth behind this suspicious tinsel-town tragedy!
Think Double Indemnity meets Naked Gun on speed!

First things first, the book is already complete!
All of the pages and artwork have been written, drawn, inked, coloured and lettered.
This Kickstarter is paying for 100 copies of the book to be printed and shipped straight to you! As well as some rewards which have also already been completed.
Why, yes! Have a look at what's on offer:
Risks and challenges
I have contacted a printer and will be firing off the comic to them if and when the Kickstarter reaches its goal.
I will probably have bits and bobs to fix, this is my first time printing a comic book so it will not be perfect! But I will be sure to update you in the event of any serious delays.
The rewards will be packaged in cardboard non bend envelopes and shipped off to wherever you may be!
The only stretch goal I'd offer would be to print and ship more copies of the book.
If the goal is reached and people like the comic, I hope to make new Chip McFitz stories - I've got loads of ideas for what could become a mini series, where I can further explore Chip's past and push the writing and artwork in more insane directions!
I greatly appreciate you checking out my Kickstarter campaign.
Feel free to ask me any questions about the project.
