A full-color comics anthology featuring new comic stories and illustrations by Corey S. Lewis the Reyyy (Sharknife)

Hello, my name is Corey Lewis. I'm a comic artist. I write and draw the "Sharknife" series of graphic novels, as well as the advanced kickball comic "PENG!", and the space-grape action adventure "Seedless". You may have also seen my work in Marvel's "Nation X" and "Strange Tales" anthologies, as well as the "Avatar: The Last Airbender, Lost Adventures" graphic novel. 

**UPDATE! 1/5/13**

**PLEASE NOTE! ALL backing levels (even the early-bird $12 level) will come with the Stretch Goal Items! (in addition to whatever is included) **

**END UPDATE!**

For the last three years I've self-published a black & white comics anthology series called "Layered Jacket" and released them at the Emerald City Comic Con, annually. 

This year I'd like to do something a little next level. 

Presenting "SUN BAKERY" my first ever full-color self-published project! 

Sun Bakery is a comics anthology / art book / design container. The first volume will feature THREE unique comic stories, all in their own varied styles, sporting a variety of themes. Along with the comics will be an artwork / illustration section, making Sun Bakery a hybrid comic book / art book.  Along with all that, Sun Bakery will have some written columns, microcomics, and most definitely some eye-popping design.

The following are the contents of Sun Bakery #1!

-- THE COMICS --

  • "LAZER JACKET"

Continuing in the tradition of "Layered Jacket" comes the birth of a new Magic Jacket-wielding Persona. Jim Thompson is an above-average scientist with a major personal problem that overflows into his work. When personalities clash, it gives way to a mistaken biproduct: A jacket made of matter undocumented by mankind-- A tool of precision world-building, or utter destruction. Is Jim-- now more than a mere human-- friend or foe? 

  • "COCKFIGHT"

It's a blood-sport most don't care to acknowledge. But to a certain sect of individuals, rooster battling is the ultimate past time. However, in this world, it's not just the chickens in danger. Whatever pain is inflicted upon the losing rooster, is also inflicted upon it's master. It's high risk, man meets animal action. Featuring characters from my long-running series of illustrations, the Skeletal Scarf Ninjas.

  • "THE GOOD & THE FOWL"

When the president's daughter is kidnapped, it's up to LJ and the Unnamed Black Knuckle Swordsman to defeat the Panang Chain Gang and recover her! But what happens when you're too hungry to continue?

Originally seen online, this Layered Jacket side-story is finally printed in all it's 3-color glory. BUT ALSO with an extended ending that shifts LJ's world into a realm he never expected!

-- THE ARTWORK --

In addition to the comic sections, Sun Bakery will have an artwork / illustration section. A lot of these are various marker drawings, commissions, fan art from comics, anime & video games, drawings done online, or for fun.

And more and more!

-- THE REWARDS --

Of course, all backers will receive a copy of SUN BAKERY-- but most of the Reward options come with extra stuff, too! Check it out... 

  • PINS! Four 1" full-color buttons to emblazon your favorite garments with!
  • SHIRTS! Armor your torso with this daring piece of apparel, featuring Sharknife, Sabreseal and Orcasword, scrawled in hi-graphic intensity. 

** Depending on the amount of backers, these shirts might be extremely limited. So if you want one, now's the time to strike! **

... If you're not sure what "Sharknife" is-- It's my graphic novel series!

  • PRINTS! Three offset printed, cardstock art prints. Sharknife one is 8.5x11" Shredder / Spider-man are 5.5x8.5" and each one also has shiny spot gloss!
  • ORIGINAL ARTWORK! There's a limited amount of backing levels that will also come with an original marker sketch from me! You can request what you'd like me to draw. It will be drawn on 11x14" bristol in markers.
    Here's an example of what my marker commissions look like: 

*Many of my previous commissions are featured in Sun Bakery!

-- STRETCH GOALS!!! --

Since my goal has been obliterated, I've decided to add some stretch goals. If we get to the following prices, these things will happen:

  • $6000 - Each backer of SUN BAKERY will get a die-cut SHARKNIFE sticker! Same design from the t-shirts, featuring Sharknife, Sabreseal and Orcasword! 
  • $7000 - Each backer of Sun Bakery will receive a WHOLE EXTRA COMIC!!! ! !!! A 12-page Sharknife side-story featuring the Sliding Penguin, RUFYO!!!! 
  • $8000 - Each backer of Sun Bakery will receive SUN BAKERY 1.2 !!!! A 32-page supplemental black & white Sun Bakery zine! Containing both the Sharknife Rufyo side-story AND the unfinished reyyy horror comic, OCTO POISON (re-drawn, and finally finished in all it's horrific glory!)

**Note: Unfinished pages. Octo-Poison will be completely remastered / restored for SUN BAKERY 1.2 ! 

Thank you all for your support, and let's see if we can meet these goals, get more quality comics in your eyes!

-- THE GOAL --

I need $2000 to pay for about 200 books and the shirts, prints and buttons. $2000 is the bare minimum and I think that's even kind of cutting it close. If I happen to go over my goal, I'll be printing more books & shirts.

I'm hoping to continue "Sun Bakery" as an ongoing anthology of my comics stories, so any help you can throw my way will be greatly appreciated :]

Thank you for taking the time to look at my project, and hopefully your support!
