RAVEN NEVERMORE is a 9-part limited comic series set in a bleak and dreary supernatural horror-fantasy setting that tells the origin story of the elite lawman, Corvan Moore, as he faces off against criminals, shifters, fiends, and spirits.
This Kickstarter is for RAVEN NEVERMORE, CHAPTER 5: “FORBIDDEN LORE”, a 30-page comic continuing the tale of Nightwatcher Corvan Moore, who returns to the spirit realm. This time he intends to explore the potential of his new-found ability. Corvan is determined to hold on to life in order to seek revenge against his enemies, but doing so may strip him of what's left of his humanity.
NOTE: This series is intended for Mature Audiences. It contains violence, profanity, nudity, sexual themes and other content suitable only for mature (18+) readers.

After fulfilling three successful Campaigns, and in the midst of fulfilling the fourth, I've gotten pretty good at predicting timelines. Below is the current schedule, on the assumption everything going as smooth as expected.
I've included the prior Campaign fulfillment, and the following Campaign kickoff, to give Backers a clear view of the broader timeline.
- Oct 1 to Oct 31 - Campaign for RAVEN NEVERMORE #4 fulfills*
- Oct 1 to Nov 30 - Campaign for RAVEN NEVERMORE #5 (60 days)
- Dec 1 to Dec 15 - Kickstarter funds validation process; funding released
- Dec 15 to Dec 31 - Final design, bonus content, printer lined up, digital files send
- Jan 1 to Jan 30 - Campaign for RAVEN NEVERMORE #5 fulfills*
- Jan 1 to Feb 28 - Campaign for RAVEN NEVERMORE #6 (60 days)
* Includes: printing, packaging, shipping; Backers should start receiving their packages by the end of the month
The entire production of all nine issues (272 pages and nine covers) that make up this sprawling tale are completely done and mostly ready for print.
Risks and challenges
All issues, in prior campaigns, have delivered earlier than expected, or on time, despite obstacles. This includes final design prep, printing, packaging, and delivery to backers, has taken about 45 days on average.
The target delivery goal includes a 2-4 week buffer, to account for any unexpected challenges along the way, that could delay the fulfillment process.
I will frequently update Backers on the campaign status and hope to be as transparent as possible about the experience. If you have any questions or concerns along the way, I will do my best to address them!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
