In iconic style with bold colours and a twisting dark plot you meet Dr. Konnick Stiffe (former CIA Phantom hitman). At its core, the R.E.E.P.E.R. (Remove Every Evil Person Entity Reserve) Men is a mystery group of revolutionaries who follow Malthusian doctrine of 1798 to control overpopulation and depletion of vital, natural resources. Their plan is to place every individual unknowingly under 2 lists- “SAFE LIST” and “EXPUNGE LIST”. The ultimate goal is to remove every evil person.
R.E.E.P.E.R. Men will be a 32 page first issue (#1) comic book, telling an ongoing story of a certain apocalyptic event in the near future and the actions taken by the worlds most treacherous society.
This issue will continue where the promotional issue (published in May 2014) left off.
Our goal is to reproduce issue #1, injecting a psychedelic mystery into the plot. Also an overall redesign of every page, producing visuals to be remembered.
This project will fund the creation of a full-color 32 page paperback comic novel for the first issue (#1) of R.E.E.P.E.R. Men.
We are also looking to expand beyond Amazon to comic book stores nationwide with distribution. This will help to fill necessary marketing, printing and shipping costs.
R.E.E.P.E.R. Men depicts life in the year 2050 after decades of rapidly expanding population growth. Based on the Malthusian doctrine of 1798, population of an extraordinary magnitude would require population control to ensure vital resources are available for human longevity, especially for the elite.
Around 2047, Dr. Konnick Stiffe, a former CIA Phantom hitman, studied the Malthusian theory and the growth of world population. He noticed planet Earth's population increasing at a drastic rate while natural resources severely decreasing at the other spectrum. He decided to take action by reaching out to 3 former members from his old unit and construct a secret society known as R.E.E.P.E.R.
Their agenda: place every individual unknowingly on 2 lists.
1. SAFE LIST
2. EXPUNGE LIST
Goal: Remove Every Evil Person.
Dr. Konnick Stiffe narrates a suspenseful story as we go deep into the thinking of the secret society, understanding it's thoughts, unlocking their dark secrets, reliving their past and discovering their true motive.
As a backer, you will be spared from the Expunge List and placed on the SAFE LIST. Note: This is just a comic, no you won't really be expunged, OR WILL YOU!!
We love kid's charities. A percentage of our comic book sales goes to charity.
This story can really happen in the future as population is growing at a rapid pace. Or is it already happening? Read a story you can believe in with stunning graphics and oh yeah, great writing!
This campaign will help keep R.E.E.P.E.R. Men alive and distributed throughout. It will all be because of the REEPERMEN NATION that R.E.E.P.E.R. Men stays alive and kicking. Yes, that song is in my head now too.

R.E.E.P.E.R. Men came to existence in the mind of J. Nelson during the cold month of March, 2013. From that point the storyline, characters have been developed and refined. With the help of an international network of great minds, R.E.E.P.E.R. Men took shape and came to life. After a few iterations and money spent, R.E.E.P.E.R. Men is now ready to be redesigned, rewritten and taken to the next level. With the help of our Kickstarter backers aka REEPERMEN NATION, we can make this first issue one to remember.
