The world is war-torn and impacted by disease. The few remaining cities left in the United States have become fortified playgrounds for the rich. When citizens of these cities need to transport themselves or goods from one city to another, they must hire an escort as opposed to facing the wrath of the barren wastelands on their own. But when an escort is hired, you need the best. And that’s why you call Esme Ford.
We need your help to keep The Escort going!
Created and written by Iggy Michniacki, The Escort follows Esme Ford, a character Michniacki had been developing for nearly a decade. First appearing in the CW Cooke written Barrens #1, Esme Ford's journey is a vision that Michniacki couldn’t wait to get into a comic. Now Esme Ford stars in The Escort with a script from Michniacki and artwork from the talented J.C. Grande (Johnny Monster, Necessary Evil), Esteban Salinas (Deviant Apple Studios), and Bobby Delaney (BD3 Illustration).
The Escort: Chapter One is a 24-page comic that debuted in 2017 as the first installment of a five-part story arc ready to entertain the masses. Through early release, The Escort has seen favorable reviews and has captivated its readers. This campaign is set to fund a print run of the completed Chapter One and help Michniacki and his team wrap up Chapters Two and Three.
The Escort: Chapter One opens up with a preview of the wasteland and a wealthy traveler running into some trouble.
Incredible cover art by Esteban Salinas.

Publishing a comic of this caliber is no easy or inexpensive task. Funds are needed mostly for printing, but we also need to pay the artists to continue the series, supply the perks and promotional materials, and cover the costs of the campaign.
Every dime raised from this campaign will go to the creative people that helped make this book happen as well as toward future issues. Profit will not be pocketed as we have work to do!

As you can see, it takes a number of individuals to make a project and a brand like this work. There's so many more individuals who have contributed art, helped us at events, and those who have focused on other aspects of the brand that cannot be forgotten.
This is an independent creation as Project-Nerd Publishing is no longer the publisher of this title. Project-Nerd Publishing was acquired by Insane Comics.
There are nine different options to support the campaign.
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges for this campaign are low. The Escort #1 is completely written, drawn, colored, and lettered. The book just has to go to the printer for a large order, and we'll have it ready for you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
