With your help this project creates a Graphic Novel featuring a brand new superhero called Kid Impact. The Graphic Novel is a self-contained story about an amazing boy named Dawood. Our hero is a young Syrian who while fleeing the violence and death within his homeland finds himself in an entirely new warzone. Having already survived great tragedy as a refugee this young man is now compelled to face his greatest fears on a quest to reunite what is left of his family. We present a perilous adventure where magical destiny intervenes to help Dawood discovers his greater purpose.
We invite you to join the team, share behind the scenes experiences and receive some really cool stuff as we produce an awesome comic. The story will be available in English and Spanish and we are planning to provide additional translations as well.
The Kid Impact comic is a super hero adventure that reflects recent world events to deliver a hero relevant to this generation and committed to peace. Our champion has been influenced by real tragedy and inspired by real humanity. We are honored to introduce this hero on the United Nation’s International Day of Peace and proud to join millions of people around the world celebrating this important day.
This campaign is powered by friends and family. Welcome to TEAM IMPACT! Here’s the rest of the Crew:
- Burhan Arif, color art and painting.
- Eden Ayala, concept, Dawood’s doodles and Dawood's sketches.
- Errol Grencio, sequential pencil and ink art.
- Raymond Ayala, creator, writer, design & production stuff.
The Kickstarter funds will pay for the comic art, prepare for digital distribution and cover the Kickstarter and reward costs.
We'll go as far as backer support demands and have stretch goals in mind that include a short print run for conventions and the release of a multimedia comic with a full audio sound track. How cool is that?
I'm an indie creator that believes that what we do creatively should reflect what we believe in...not just the bottom line. In Kid Impact: The Making of a Hero we are producing a great heroes journey that will entertain with a compelling story and good artwork. But we want it to do more. Kid Impact is the first in a line of heroes and comics to be used internationally in partnership with peace building organizations as a free resources. Kid Impact is just the the start.
Risks and challenges
I’ve backed a lot of projects and helped kickstart some really cool stuff. This is also my third Kickstarter campaign as a creator. So with all of this Kickstarter experience, I know that campaign risks and challenges are REAL! The greatest lesson learned is that communication is important. I totally get it and I expect to utilize backer updates to keep you up-to-speed and engaged as much as possible. As a fan/backer I don’t ever want to feel misled or forgotten - so as a producer I won’t do it. I’ve tried my best to consider potential obstacles in the delivery projections and overall prepared the best we can.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
