Last year, the fourth chapter of the fantasy adventure webcomic Suihira: The City of Water concluded, and it's time to bring those pages to print!

 The goal for this kickstarter is to fund a small run of Chapter 4 issues for 2018! The book will contain 42 pages, printed in beautiful full color in soy-based inks at 10.25" x 6.5".

Chapters 1 through 3 are also available through this campaign, in both digital (high quality .pdf) and print form, so if you haven't picked up the others yet, you can do so here! Each Chapter comes with its own Digital Sketchbook, containing behind-the-scenes content such as concept art and production notes in a high quality .pdf! 

Stickers with the Suihira characters drawn in a chibi style are now available thanks to reaching our first stretch goal!

 What's Suihira: The City of Water about? This award-winning webcomic is about a zealous desert princess running away from home to find the legendary city of a dishonored water goddess. 

 In Chapter 4, Princess Wahida, also known as "Dija", tags along with two "desert folk" who promise to help her get supplies for her journey to Suihira. Little does she know, they actually plan on turning her in for a quick cash reward. However, things may not go exactly as any of them had hoped...

 

Chapters 1 through 3 are also available in beautiful paperback prints, and I'm excited to add Chapter 4 to my printed roster!

All my books are printed in the USA with soy-based inks, which has less of an impact on the environment than regular printing ink.

Here are some samples from the Digital Sketchbooks. They include all sorts of bonus material, like concept art, model sheets, studies, and more! Each chapter comes with its own sketchbook with different content. 

 

For this campaign, I am also offering a limited number of custom pencil sketches of a character from Suihira! Here's a sample of my pencil work!

 

Stretch Goal #1 -  REACHED!!!

The sticker sheet will be 5x7 in and in high quality vinyl! Every reward with a physical book will have these included! 

If you back any of the Digital Books without paperbacks and want the stickers as well, increase your pledge by $10 with a message that you'd like the stickers as well! 

Stick these beauties on your laptop, thermos, on your best friend's back... etc!

Stretch Goal #2 - REACHED!

Anniversary Postcards!

These illustrations were made to celebrate Suihira's first, second, and third anniversary. Now they're here to celebrate this Kickstarter and its backers! Every reward with a physical book will have these 5 x 7 in postcards included!

If you back any of the Digital Books without paperbacks and want the postcards as well, increase your pledge by $10 with a message that you'd like the postcards! If you would like both the postcards and the stickers, increase your pledge by $15 with a message that you'd like both!

Stretch Goal #3 - $3000

Acrylic Keychains!

If the campaign reaches $3000, Acrylic Keychains of Suihira characters will be available to backers! Can we make this stretch goal before the campaign ends?!

Q&A:

Why not make a volume of all 4 chapters?
I considered doing this, however, I would prefer to stick to releasing single issues for each chapter until a full book is complete (8 chapters). Suihira, when finished, will be 2 books. I may print an Omnibus upon completion of both books, but that won't be for at least another decade.

Do you have any stretch goals?
I wasn't originally going to, but I was so blown away by the campaign, that I must now have stretch goals! 

Where's the $300 go to?
Half of it goes to printing and the other half goes to shipping, fees, taxes, etc! 

I'm going to be at Emerald City Comic Con / Wondercon. Can I pick my book(s) up there?
Absolutely! Just please let me know, and I'll reserve copies for you at these cons!

Risks and challenges

Although this is my first Kickstarter, I have experience with printing and shipping out orders, so I'm confident about fulfilling this book. That being said, things outside of my control, such as technology failing, shipping delays, human error, miscommunication, etc, can always arise. In this event, I'll do my best to resolve things quickly and stay in communication with my backers.

All the comic artwork, digital files, and previous chapters' printed issues are finished and ready to be sent to you all! All that's left to be done is the actual printing of Chapter 4.
