Liberator is a unique and beautifully illustrated comic book series starring brave heroes risking it all to protect animals.

THE COMIC:

Do you love gritty anti-heroes like Dexter or Batman?  Check out Liberator, featuring a new type of superhero who avenges the torture of animals.  For anybody who ever thought comics could be punk and subversive and maybe even glorify some good old fashioned direct action, this is something unique and worth supporting.

The idea for the book formed with the realization that the same people who might support and enjoy stories about someone like Batman, who puts on a mask in the night and helps people, might also support and enjoy stories about an underground animal liberation activist, who puts on a mask in the night and helps animals.

UPDATE FROM MATT 1-10-2013

Yesterday I sent out a video update that details some of the work my wife and I do for the animals - the rescue work we do in Rockaway, NY.  I've linked that below if you're interested in seeing nerdy video of me talking but also video of rescues and some personal clips from when Hurricane Sandy hit.

Please know this: My portion of profits on post-Kickstarter sales are going straight to helping us continue our animal rescue work.  The Kickstarter funding pays the art team to make the books.

Again: My personal part of Liberator sales profits post-Kickstarter goes back in to helping animals.

THE CREATORS:

Writer MATT MINER is an activist who's spent years in the fight for animals on the legal aboveground front line, and more recently spends his time on animal rescue and pit bull advocacy, writing for BSL News and helping displaced animals in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.  Matt plans to use his part of post-Kickstarter Liberator profits to help fund his independent pit bull rescue work.

Artist JOEL GOMEZ is an accomplished penciler and inker who got his start at Top Cow before being hired by Jim Lee for Wildstorm Studios.  Joel's catalogue of work includes Wetworks, Nightmare on Elm Street, Lost Boys: Reign of Frogs, Flashpoint: Reverse Flash and Detective Comics.

Colorist BETH SOTELO is one of the top color artists working today, adding gorgeous color and amazing rendering to books from Supergirl to X-Men and most recently on Aspen titles like Fathom.

Letterer and Editor VITO DELSANTE is a familiar name in the comic world from having managed one of NYC's premier comic shops, Jim Hanley's Universe, but he's also written books ranging from Superman and Batman Adventures to his own creator owned titles like FCHS.

Backup Artist YASMIN LIANG is a rising talent in the comic world and is handling art duties on the articles and extras in Liberator as well as line art of some gorgeous variant covers.  Yasmin is the artist for Steed and Mrs. Peel (Boom! Studios) and contributed to the wildly successful recent Before, After & In Between: A Comic Anthology Kickstarter project.

OUTSIDE COLLABORATORS / CONTRIBUTORS - In addition to 24 pages of sequential comic story in every issue, we're packing in pages of explosive articles, features and extras written and submitted by collaborators and contributors featured in the reward tier packages.

THE KICKSTARTER:

Liberator is a 4-issue full-color mini series and this Kickstarter's goal is to fund the whole thing so we don't need to fundraise again and again. 

Liberator has found a publishing home but, as is the nature of creator-owned books, we have to pay for the art team and other production costs ourselves.  If we can't pay for the art team to finish the book then there won't be a book.  The price tag for creating an issue of Liberator is around $4000, so the Kickstarter funds that plus all the rewards, shipping, the 10% cut that Kickstarter and Amazon take between them, and other related expenses.

THE REWARDS:

Here's where things get really good for you, the backer of this project.

Not wanting to make a cookie-cutter comic book or run a cookie-cutter Kickstarter campaign, we reached out for collaboration to likeminded, supportive and otherwise animal-friendly bands, organizations, and individuals who are major players in their respective fields.

What does this mean?  It means that contributors to LIBERATOR range from punk rock icons BAD RELIGION to convicted animal liberation activist PETER YOUNG to award-winning filmmaker SHANNON KEITH to a bunch of amazing comic book creators!

It also means that these people have made and assembled amazing, rare and exclusive reward packages just for this Kickstarter campaign.

Who knew, when we started this thing, that it would gain so much interest over such a broad spectrum?  We're thrilled to have so many diverse people and organizations contribute to the creation of this comic project!

PLEASE NOTE: If you want to pledge for multiple rewards YOU CAN - just add the appropriate amount of money to an existing pledge then use the CONTACT ME link, tell me what you're adding and I'll take care of it!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The biggest risk we face is in public perception of the finished book. We want it to be clear that this book is for EVERYONE.

When you pick up a copy of Liberator you won't face pious lectures or be made to feel guilty for ideological differences. There will be no proselytizing here.

Liberator is a book for everybody, about real-world everyday people with regular problems and personalities who happen to have a burning drive to help animals, even taking matters outside the law at times. But first and foremost, the book is about our heroes.

Aside from that there are challenges and unexpected setbacks that could potentially arise, but if we're successfully funded, Liberator's publisher is 1000% committed to bringing the book to market and making Liberator shine. Their genuine love for the project and personal interest in seeing it come to life is, in itself, an assurance that Liberator is in good hands.

FAQ

  • If we go over then there are stretch goals we have in mind that would reward every backer to the project with some really cool extras! Aside from that any overage will go straight into a second series. We've got a lot of great Liberator stories that we'd love to bring to you!
