Ruined My Rhythm, Volume Four

is the final installment of a graphic novel set in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Contemplation
Contemplation

Suicide.      Grief.     Alcoholism.     Homelessness.

 Ruined My Rhythm is a graphic novel of a sort of magical realism-type style about a Latina teen sketch artist that is actually illustrated by a Latina teen sketch artist, Luna Cooper from Springfield, Missouri.

***

123 people die by suicide every day in the U.S. on the average. That’s about the number of passengers in a jet crash happening every single day. Just think how we would demand an end to airliners crashing every day, yet suicide remains an ignored epidemic. Not only does this story aim to entertain but also inform.

***

We're so excited to finally get this last volume printed and to you first before it's sold to the rest of the world!

Volume 4 is coming soon!
Volume 4 is coming soon!

Please consider one of the reward tiers on the right.

You'll be supporting a story of victory over homelessness, suicide, loss and addiction.

In A Dark Place
In A Dark Place

After Maria, the main character, loses her mother, she arrives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, homeless and in search of a father she never knew.

As the story progresses, she begins to wonder if the drawings in her sketch pad are causing things to happen.

You Know Why I'm Here
You Know Why I'm Here
Friends.
Friends.

RUINED MY RHYTHM is...

Female-Lead Story
Female-Lead Story

Volume One follows snarky, intelligent outsider, Maria Sanchez. She is hard, edgy and tough, a combination of Lisbeth Salandar, the angry, volatile main character from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and cynical, witty, coming-of-age Enid Coleslaw from Daniel Clowes' Ghost World. 

Mama!
Mama!

When Maria's mom dies, she comes to Tulsa, Oklahoma, homeless and in search of her father.

Maria's sketches that predict possible futures, a Volkswagon Microbus painted yellow and black that attracts bees and Terri's grandmother who literally hasn't slept in decades all provide a unique touch of Neil Gaiman or Gabriel Garcia-Marquez-type magical realism.

In the story's penultimate volume 3, Maria's suppressed grief surfaces when she visits her first ever Day of the Dead Festival in Tulsa's Arts District.

Now, Volume Four is almost ready to be printed and we need your support. A 48-page, 10 & 1/8 inches by 6 & 5/8 inch modern comic book, its pages and cover are thicker than most. With the help of this KICKSTARTER, we'll get it into the hands of everyone who's been waiting.

As the story culminates, Maria must choose between her newfound friends and a free ride to California in a continued search for her father. Which will she choose?

Co-creator, Illustrator, Colorist, Letterer, Luna does it all.

At the age of 15, Luna Cooper began working on the pages for Ruined My Rhythm, Volume One. Now 19 years old, she is excited to see Volume Four in print, but sad to see the end of an era. Luna is a twin. Her sister Maia is also an excellent illustrator. And...Luna and Maia's four younger sisters are also creative sketch artists and painters (quite a family of artists, the Coopers are). This is certainly not Luna's first comic book endeavor and it won't be her last.

When he isn’t taking nature walks with the love of his life, Michele, through Tulsa's Oxley Nature Center or practicing yoga at Be Love on 6th Street, Robert is writing fiction, contributing to Preview magazine, spending time at the lake with his parents, Roger and Maddy, or attending to every need of his three cats, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.

Robert Soul currently serves the chronically homeless of Tulsa as an employment specialist with the Mental Health Association Oklahoma's A Better Way program.

Zach Raw started drawing as a kid and never stopped. He entered his art in a drug awareness contest in the third grade and took first in state. Since then he's won several awards from the Tulsa County Public Library, two mini con competitions, and first place in an issue of Game Informer, the American video game magazine. His art has also been shown at the Philbrook Museum of Art, Conestoga,Tulsa People magazine, the Tulsa World, and a steam punk art show. He's always working on tons of projects, including comic books, children's books and murals.

M.A. Chiappetta is on a continual quest to become famous and well-paid through copywriting, ghostwriting, editing, blogging and journalism. She has been published in a variety of magazines and websites, including Preview, Oklahoma Magazine, Vehicle MD, go.drive, Science Fiction and Fantasy Writer’s Chat, Mensa Bulletin and Recursor.tv.

Four of our favorite artists have contributed additional VARIANT covers to Ruined My Rhythm, Volume 4!

WOW.

NATASHA ALTERICI, talented artist and writer of HEATHEN, cover artist for The WILDS and contributor to so many other fantastic works, brings such beautiful energy, yet muted emotion to this cover. So appropriate for the volume's final scene. We love it! This Oklahoma artist is fantastic, ya'll.

GABBY RAMIREZ's tender, melancholic take on Maria's conflicted feelings about choosing between her new friends and finding her father in California is absolutely brilliant. We're excited to have this Houston, TX artist represent.

Micheline Hess of New York City, creator of the award-winning graphic novel, MALICE IN OVENLAND, graciously granted us a variant cover and we love the innocent, childlike whimsy.

STRETCH GOALS! ! !

When the project reaches $2000, Ruined My Rhythm button pack added to every physical reward tier.

When the project reaches $2300, we will be able to add 4 bonus pages addressing suicide awareness to the back of Ruined My Rhythm, Volume Four.

Around 1.7 million young people experience at least one night of homelessness every year, according to the National Network for Youth. Many of them go way past one night without a place to stay. The CDC's 2015 report on risky behavior in youth finds that homeless youth are at a much greater risk of suicide compared to their peers.

When the project reaches the STRETCH GOAL of $2500, a copy of the 2019 issue #1 of Weird and Strange Tales on Route 66 will be added to the physical reward tiers.

STRETCH GOAL $2700-         ????????

STRETCH GOAL $3000-         ????????

*Help us decide other stretch goals as we go along. Message us with your ideas.

Risks and challenges

Listen, there are always risks, but we've had 6 out of 6 successful projects on this platform alone. The art for the story is complete, just a few tweaks here and there in the dialogue and a few pages of bonus material and we're ready to go to the printers. We're so excited to get this to you and and any challenges that remain won't stop us.

    ALL 4 SIGNED PRINTED VOLUMES & YOUR CHOICE of ONE VARIANT COVER

    In RMRV4's 48 pages, Maria faces a dilemma. When her search for her father and her new found friends in Tulsa seem to be going in opposite directions, a hard choice has to be made.
