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 2: “TEMPTER SENT”, a 30-page comic that follows Corvan Moore, as he seeks answers regarding what’s happened to his family. He heads down into The Waterways, a complex sewer labyrinth beneath the city. He’ll get some answers down there… the lead to more confusion, questions… and grief.
As Stretch Goals unlock, purchasing subsequent issues will be made available as new Campaign Tiers. Hopefully this provides a unique way to crowdfund, and receive, future issues sooner!

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 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 issue #1. With the first issue experience out of the way, I am confident that subsequent production runs will be smooth and efficient.
The first issue packaging and shipping experience is also now out of the way and I am confident that future campaign fulfillment will see a reduction in turnaround times. The distribution 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 this second time around. I released the first issue ahead of schedule.
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
