In the 1960s, the CIA sent astronauts into space...and lost them. Until today...
2 Stretch Goals UNLOCKED! 2 more added!
We blew right past the first two stretch goals: THANK YOU! We've added two more. Keep SHARING the project and telling your friends. Let's get to 3k. Not sure what stretch goals we'll add to get to that one, but we feel like we're up to the challenge!
Welcome to the kickstarter for Kayless #1, the first issue in a five issue mini-series to be published by, Silverline, a genre spanning independent comic book and graphic novel publisher. The comic is completely finished: all 22 pages of story and art plus the covers are done! All we need now is YOU!
In 1967, Scott Anders rocketed into space on a secret, CIA-sponsored mission referred to as the Kayless Project... to investigate an astronomical anomaly known only in the darkest corridors of the U.S. Government. Three days later all communication ceased. The project, seen as an embarrassing and costly failure, was erased from history and forgotten.
Until today, when Scott mysteriously plummets to earth and emerges, unscathed, and hellbent on one purpose… to return to the anomaly in space. Why does he want to go back? How did he gain his new invulnerability? And what is the mysterious organization that stands in his way, determined to protect the secret of Kayless at all costs?
Kayless is a science fiction/ superhero/ government conspiracy drama in a beautiful full-color comic book, standard 22-page format. This Kickstarter is for issue #1 of the first five-issue arc. The book is finished and ready to ship.
The Kickstarter cover is exclusive and will only be available for those who back the campaign. We’ll have regular updates to keep you up to date on how we’re doing. We hope you’ll join us!
Some assorted art
So...what will we do with the money? We don't have any fancy charts to show you, so I'll just tell you the plan. Obviously, the primary role of the money we raise here will be to print and ship the rewards out to you; remember, the comic is completely finished! Without you, we've got no reason to be here. Beyond that, we're hoping for enough money for some stretch goals--which are always fun. But we're also hoping to raise enough to fund the production of Kayless #2.
Risks and challenges
The risks are minimal. The comic is completely finished, and except for adding the "thank you" page, it is ready to send to the printer!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
