So we cruised past the thousand mark and thus have BROKEN our initial stretch goal. So what's left to do? SUPER SIZE IT AGAIN! That's right, if we cross the $1,500 before the campaign ends we'll increase to a whopping 48 pages! 44 pages art & story, 4 pages artwork, thank yous and letters! Let's do the time warp again!

Stretch Goal #2: 48 Pages! No Filler!

Stretch Goal #1: SUPER SIZE ME!
 - ACHIEVED!

The Sire is about a superhero forced by his costume to fight evil – it's like having a spider-sense but instead of warning him of danger it puts him in danger.

Phazer follows the story of scientist Mark Moreno, the victim of a sabotaged experiment with alien technology. As a result he uncontrollably shifts through time and alternate realities where his altered molecular structure manifests different super powers on each new world he lands.

What the Funds Will be Used For:

The bulk of the funds raised for this Kickstarter will be used for printing and shipping. Of course, Kickstarter will be taking their fee out of what we raise. There will be some money used to cover the expenses of our artist fees, and whatever is left will be used to cover promotions and conventions to get the book out there and keep it in circulation.
