Fight School High School Chapter 1

UPDATE: ***STRETCH GOALS!!***

Thanks to everyone's amazing Support, we are able to offer these amazing stretch goals to strive for. Let's keep spreading the word, and take this project to new heights together!

$1,400 STRETCH GOAL: TEACHER'S LOUNGE OMAKE

A Japanese fandom term for "extra or bonus", Omake are short little comics attached to a larger story. If we hit $1,400 Isaiah and I will have the means to add a short bonus comic to the end of chapter one. Ever wonder what teachers get up to when their students aren't around? How about if those teachers happened to be insanely powerful martial arts masters? Let's reach this goal and find out!

$1,600 STRETCH GOAL: PREMIUM COVER

With 1,600 dollars in our pockets, we can upgrade the cover of chapter one to a heavier, more luxurious stock. And trust me, with what Isaiah has planned for the cover, this will be well worth the upgrade. 

***MORE TO COME!***

 WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?  Fight School High School is a story about finding friends, growing into your own, and navigating the turbulent waters of adolescence...told through the perspective of the new kid at a boarding school for martial arts experts. Hiro Yūsha only ever wanted to live a quiet and normal life, but he was always destined for greater things. Now thrust into an environment where conflict is everywhere, and the next class could always be his last, Hiro must learn not just to fight, but win! 

 

This Kickstarter is designed to pay for the first chapter of Fight School High School. It will be twenty pages of unfiltered awesomeness, full of everything you could want in a love letter to shonen manga and anime.

Matt Gordon handles the writing and lettering for Fight School High School. He works as an English teacher and freelance writer, and has worked on such projects as Retail Haiku and Musings.

Isaiah Broussard takes care of the visual side of things. He knocks out stellar pencils, inks, and occasionally colors for Fight School High School. He's also the creator of the hit comic series Transyltown, as well as the political commentary comic Crackers & White Wine.

WHAT SORT OF REWARDS AM I IN FOR?  We have lots of great rewards for those awesome people who support this Kickstarter. Everything from getting your name on our credits page in the book, to merch bags full of buttons, stickers, and posters, to original lined and inked pages and commissions! Just check the right side of the page for more details. 

 

 

Oh, and the book itself, of course. 

HOW TO GET INVOLVED: If you've pledged money, congrats! You're about as involved as you can be, and we thank you tremendously for it. Please spread the word to anyone and everyone you think would enjoy a story about friendship, fighting, and fun! Every pledge helps, so the more people you tell the better.

Risks and challenges

Since both the script and a majority of the pages are finished, we will hit our deadline of finishing the book before the year is out. It is, however, possible that the printer may not be able to have the books done in our estimated time frame, the start of 2018. We promise to stay in contact with our printer, and share information regarding printing schedules.

Original art rewards may take time to complete as Isaiah works on the final few pages of chapter one, as well as a few other projects. Again, communication will be regular and transparent about our process.
