RAVEN NEVERMORE: MIDNIGHT DREARY

CA$ 2,716

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 3: “MIDNIGHT DREARY”, a 30-page comic that follows Corvan Moore, who is coerced into clearing a shipment of dreamdust into Cog Town, if he wants to see his daughter again. What does the ship's first mate, a celestial, know about Corvan, and how is he connected to Sheriff Gearwall? Corvan's bloodline holds answers, but is he ready to accept them?

I started a YouTube Channel, where I talk about Raven Nevermore, inspirations, behind the scenes production/design stuff, address questions and comments, talk about the journey of making the comics and crowdfunding them, etc.

It's a work in progress and a place where fans can engage. If this interests you, don't forget to SUBSCRIBE.

Check out the 46 minute video above to get an idea of the kind of stuff I'll be talking about.

Risks and challenges

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.

I have partnered with a local printer, located about an hour away from me. This significantly reduced the anticipated production time on previous issues. With the previous experiences out of the way, I am confident that subsequent production runs will be smooth and efficient.

The issue 1 packaging and shipping experiences taught me what I needed to know to successfully repeat the process. Despite the learning curve, issue 1 delivered earlier than expected. I'm confident that future campaign fulfillment will see a reduction in turnaround times.

This campaign is launching while waiting for issue 2 to arrive from the printers. This process is ahead of schedule, and issue 2 will be packaged and delivered to Backers ahead of the deadline, as well.

The target delivery goal includes a 4-6 week buffer, to account for any other challenges along the way, that could delay the fulfillment process--but I don't anticipate requiring it.

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!
