Here's the Story:

SMOOTH is a five issue all-ages miniseries starring the title character, “Smooth” Newt the Fox. Seeking a bigger thrill in his life, Newt leaves his illustrious acting career behind to start his own private investigation agency. With the help of his talkative assistant Jabber the Parrot and friend/police contact Kaitlin Terry, the trio work together to solve crimes around the city of Star Town. 

When a walk-in client comes to Newt regarding a missing friend, he immediately takes the case in the hopes of it being his next grand adventure. He winds up getting that and more, as his case eventually intersects with one of Kaitlin’s ongoing investigations, prompting the two team up and find out what’s going on.  

SMOOTH is inspired by things like LOONEY TUNES, BONKERS from the Disney Afternoon block, the video game GEX (points if you remember that!), and even a little bit of CALVIN AND HOBBES. 

The Creative Team:

Writer: Quinton Miles is a writer whose work has been featured in a number of mobile video games, including iCarly Mobile (with Nickelodeon) and Army Men: Mobile Ops (with Take Two Interactive). If you couldn’t tell from the video, he’s also a fan of star wipes. Lots and lots of star wipes. 

Artist: Angela Corbin is an extremely talented artist and a recent graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design. She’s also a big fan of animated properties and anthropomorphic characters, which directly influences her style.

Colorist: Miguel Marques is a published colorist whose work can be seen in a multiple books. His most notable projects include the GI Joe books from IDW and Tales of the Starlight Drive-In from Image Comics.

Letterer:  MaGnUs, also known as Martín A. Pérez, is a writer and letterer that publishes the webcomic “My Life Without a Jetpack” (http://nojetpack.thecomicstrip.org/comics/). 

The Plan: 

Our goal is to release an issue of SMOOTH digitally each month, tentatively starting in July, just like a regular comic book. The first arc will comprise of Issues 1-4, and Issue 5 would be an anthology with stories from past episodes of Newt’s various television shows. It’ll also serve as a big thank you to our backers, because you’ll also have a chance to get your name on the Star Town Wall of Fame in the issue, or even be a supporting character in one of the stories! We will then collect those issues in a trade paperback edition. 

How We'll Use The Funds:

All funds raised go directly towards the production costs to complete (paying the artist, letterer and colorist), market (Facebook ads, press releases, etc.), and publish the series in print (the trade paperback version)  and on various eBook outlets (iBookstore, Android Market, Kindle, Nook via Graphic.ly). If we got really REALLY lucky, we’d like to make SMOOTH an ongoing digital series, and would use the remaining funds to cover production costs for a new four issue arc + anthology issue, followed by the printed version of the trade.

This is a series we’re amped about, and with your help we can make it a reality. Thanks!
