In the city of Detroit, being a superhero has become a way to survive. Amongst the many ‘capes’ who roam the Motor City’s streets, destiny has thrown one alcoholic wannabe into the adventure of his life …whether he wants it or not. Please help us publish his epic tale!

What’s going on here then?

Ah ha! You clicked the link!! Thank you so much for giving some time to read this!

We are Black Snow Comics, the comic group behind various super-hero parody comics such as the Original Black Snow comic book series, the insane Hollywood themed ‘I’m Famous!’ and its noodle-headed manga spin-off ‘I’m Famous in Japan!

Now, after many years of sharpening our artistic and writing skills, we’re now taking the plunge to produce and market our first Graphic Novel (aka ‘Fancy Comic’) featuring the anti-hero Black Snow in ‘Two Drink Minimum’.

However, as we all have day-jobs just to make ends meet, raising the funds needed to print and promote this book has proven to be very difficult. In order to print a run of the comic that will be both of high quality and affordable for all, we would need more funds than we could afford.

But, thanks to KickStarter and hopefully your with your help, this comic could have a chance of becoming a reality.

Ok then, how does this thing work?

Over on the right you’ll see the target goal. That’s the amount we need to get a good print run of the comic made, with hopefully enough left over to handle logistics and further marketing. If the goal is reached, production will begin at once to get the comic out for our deadline. If the goal is not reached, you will not be charged. You only pay of the project reaches its goal.

Hey, wait a minute! You want me to pay money?! What do I get out of it?

Not to worry. If you pledge cash to our KickStarter, we consider you to be all kinds of cool and therefore must be rewarded. Along the right panel, you will see categories with US dollar amounts. By pledging an amount of cash, you will receive the reward listed in that category.

Stretch Goals

$2,000  Regular Black Snow Comics contributor and all around nice guy Mark Egan is throwing in a digital copy his upcoming book Back Office Volume 1 for all of the backers if our $2,000 goal is reached!  You can check out his comic at http://rawrtacular.com/bo/

$2,500  All backers of $20 or more will get the Black Snow Drink Mix Guide!  A printed mini-book featuring a collection of alcoholic mix drinks inspired by your favorite Black Snow: Two Drink Minimum characters.

$2,750  All backers of $20 or more will get 3 exclusive bookmarks.  These will be made only for this project's backers and will incorporate art inspired by the book and state that you helped make this book.

$3,000  We will make a video that shows the entire book, where we voice act out all the lines and probably add some music and sound effects.

Risks and challenges

One important challenge has been met, and due to additional backing and changes in our publication plan we have been able to lower the minimum requirement goal from our previous our previous Kickstarter effort.

The biggest challenge will be to finish drawing the book. It's completely written and there are really just a few more scenes left to draw, so it should not be a problem. From there it will go through a formatting and proofing phase, before ultimately being printed and shipped out to all you fantastic supporters.
