I'm running this campaign to help fund the art production for the last two issues of Just Another Sheep. Up until this point I've managed to fund the first three issues mostly by myself, but now I'm low on funds. So I'm turning to the Kickstarter community for support. With your help, we can make the completion of this five issue miniseries a reality!
Just Another Sheep follows a timid teen learning to think for himself in the days of Flower Children, free love, and the Vietnam War. But this is not just a soul search! The teen is on a quest to find out how he has the amazing ability to make people experience anything his body has before-- be that food poisoning, intoxication, pleasure, or pain.
Story by Mat Heagerty (Wrinkled- 215ink), Line Art by JD Faith (VIRGIL), Colors by John Paul Little (Morning Glories- Image Comics), Colors also by Jon Cairns (Alpha Flag), Lettering by Ed Brisson (Sheltered- Image Comics)
