Trinity used to live a life of crime, but now she makes ends meet by working as a barista in New York City.
The thing is, though, in New York City... well, making ends meet isn't easy to do with a minimum wage job. Not to mention the fact that customers are beginning to get on Trinity's nerves, and it's becoming harder and harder to keep it together.
And now, Trinity's past is calling and she finds out firsthand that just when she thought she was out... they pull her back in.
From the team that successfully Kickstarted Destiny NY, Clonsters, Modern Dread, Prison Witch, and Afterglow comes a brand new thriller that will keep you laughing while you're on the edge of your seat.
GANGSTER ASS BARISTA is a 70-page graphic novel written by me (Pat Shand, writer/creator of Destiny NY, Afterglow, Breathless, Little Girl, Snap Flash Hustle and more) and illustrated by Renzo Rodriguez (Breathless, Hellchild). After teaming up on Black Mask's hit horror comic Breathless, Renzo and I are back with this comedic, coffee-fueled crime thriller!
GANGSTER ASS BARISTA is a DESTINY NY spinoff, but you don't have to have read that series to enjoy this! It stands alone as a brand new, character-driven adventure.
If you want to catch up on her past, though, you can also get both volumes of DESTINY, NY through this Kickstarter! They are available in print and digital.
We have three beautiful editions of GANGSTER ASS BARISTA, with a standard cover by Renzo, a Kickstarter-exclusive edition by DESTINY, NY's upcoming series artist Elisa Romboli and a limited Bootlegger edition by THE TOMMY GUN DOLLS' Daniel Cooney.
Keep reading to check out our amazing rewards, including:
- the graphic novel itself
- original artwork from the book
- custom artwork commissions
- the chance to get drawn into the book
- enamel pins
- coffee coaster
- signed bookplate
- and more!

Risks and challenges
We have a well-oiled system and a plan to get the book done ahead of schedule. In a creative endeavor of this size, possible challenges could be delays in production or printing, considering we ship overseas. However, any time that has happened in the past has been minor -- we have successfully Kickstarted multiple projects before as creators AND as a team, which has given us the utmost confidence that we'll meet and exceed your expectations. When hiccups are hit, we send updates. When we receive our shipment, we get them our to backers THAT WEEK without delay. Our backers deserve the absolute best, and we promise to deliver the highest quality and the best communication.
