If you're new to Side-Kicked and want to Catch-Up on the series and receive the Side-Kicked Volume 1 trade paperback (containing Chapters 1-4), it is very simple to participate in the Stretch Goal reward.

When you select your Reward Tier (starting with, at least, the $35 - Art Enthusiast Bundle), add $20 to the Pledge Amount so you will still receive your signed copy of the Side-Kicked Volume 1 trade paperback (containing Chapters 1-4).

It's that simple!

ABOUT SIDE-KICKED

Sick and tired of being taken for granted by the citizens of Chicago, ignored by the media, and disrespected by the super-heroes they worked with, the sidekicks of Chicago WENT ON STRIKE.

Side-Kicked Chapter #1 - Page 23
Side-Kicked Chapter #1 - Page 23

That is the story detailed in Side-Kicked Chapters 1-4, which were successfully funded on Kickstarter in two separate campaigns.

This campaign is to raise funds to print Side-Kicked Chapter 5, the First Issue in a brand new 5-issue mini-series, and the beginning of an all-new, complete story in the world of Side-Kicked.

But don't worry.  If you missed out on Side-Kicked Chapters 1-4 (collected in the Side-Kicked Volume #1 trade paperback) you can still get copies through this campaign.  There are three Reward Tiers specifically for catching up on the story so far.

$13 - Digital Catch-Up Streamlined Edition 

$24 - DIGITAL CATCH-UP TIER

$35 - PHYSICAL CATCH-UP TIER

You can also INCREASE YOUR PLEDGE at ANY PLEDGE LEVEL to add a Digital Copy of Side-Kicked Chapters 1-4 ($8) OR a Physical Copy of the Side-Kicked Volume #1 trade paperback ($20).

DISCLAIMER: You don't NEED Volume 1 to understand or enjoy Chapter 5 (Side-Kicked Volume 2: Issue #1), but you will certainly have a greater experience if you've read it.

Side-Kicked Volume 2 (Chapters 5-9) is a 5-issue comic book mini-series created by series writer, Russell Brettholtz.  Its story picks up right where Side-Kicked Chapter 4 left off.

The strike is over.  The sidekicks have teamed up with some of the heroes they formerly worked with creating Chicago's first super-team.  But will an alien threat destroy the new status quo the sidekicks fought so hard for?  And all the while, the former sidekicks to Chicago's greatest super-villains are consolidating their own power, filling the vacuum left by the imprisonment of their former bosses.

Series writer and co-creator Russell Brettholtz (that's me) has already finished scripting the entirety of Chapters 5-9.  Sales from the Volume 1 trade paperback produced enough profit that the artwork for Chapter 5 is paid for, but I will still need help with printing costs.

Having physical copies of issues of Side-Kicked to sell provides me with the necessary money to continue paying my art team to produce this series (and reduce the funding goals for future Kickstarter campaigns to create Chapters 6-9).  Once the artwork for all of Chapters 5-9 is complete, I will be able to present the new, complete series to Darby Pop (publisher of the Side-Kicked Volume #1 trade paperback) for consideration for greater publication.

What Are People Saying About Side-Kicked?

Side-Kicked Volume 1 Trade Paperback (collecting Chapters 1-4)
Side-Kicked Volume 1 Trade Paperback (collecting Chapters 1-4)

 "You should pick up this book - its heart is in the right place... and yours will be in your throat!" - Michael Zapcic (Comic Book Men)

"Brettholtz’s deadpan comedy allows few breaks for the sidekicks throughout, tapping into the down-on-their-luck wave (think Hawkeye or Ant-Man) that has proven to be a winning formula in the last few years. The series is worth a look if you are keen to venture outside the mainstream capes." - Jeff Marsick (Newsarama

"4 out of 5 Stars" - Richard Vasseur (firstcomicsnews.com)

"Check out Side-Kicked - You'll be glad you did!" - Ed Garrett (tmstash.com)

"I hope there’s a sequel." - (Don't Read My Blog)

Meet the Creative Team

Writer: Russell Brettholtz

Russell Brettholtz started reading comic books at the age of eight, when his grandmother gave him an Archie.  At twelve he graduated to the X-Men which he collected for over twenty years.  Russell’s road to writing comics began with X-Men fan-fiction in high school and college, and finally a story submission to Marvel (it was not published).  When he realized that finding an artist and self-publishing were realistic possibilities thanks to the internet, Russell put serious effort into creating his own comic book.  Side-Kicked was his first full length comic book with original characters.   The Volume 1 (Chapters 1-4) trade paperback sold out of its initial Darby Pop Publishing printing and is well on its way to selling out of its second edition, as well.  Russell lives in New York’s capital region with his wife and two daughters. 

Penciler: Andrey Portilla

Andrey Portilla is a Colombian comic book artist and illustrator.  He discovered his interest for comic books at the age of 14 when he bought his first Spawn.  Marveled by the art of Greg Capullo, he began to copy his drawings and set a goal to someday reach the same level of success as him.

Andrey made his professional studies in graphic design, but abandoned them soon after realizing that his course was deviating from his goal that was to draw and to live comics.  From there, Andrey began to work for publishers in his native country, drawing textbooks and children's books, later beginning to work with comic projects for comic book publishers and indie authors. Andrey also worked on storyboard, character design and concept art.  In his spare time, he likes to write stories, paint, read manga and draw his own comics.

His previous works include Knight’s Legacy: Awakening of the Pen Ddraig (Heroic Tendencies Studios) and Dragon Tamers (Bronco Ink Publishing).

Inker: Quepler Pirchiner

Quepler Pirchiner is a 23 years old, comic book inker and colorist.  He graduated in Graphic Design from Estácio de Sá University Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and has published works for the North American and Brazilian markets.

One of his most recent works was for John Daniel Taylor IV’s, 3 CORPS (Top Secret Press).

Colorist: Colin Patrick Moore

Colin Patrick Moore is an artist and colorist based out of Portland, Oregon. His color work can be found with publishers like Dynamite and IDW, as well as in a wide variety of indie markets. His art can also be found in the webcomic, River City

Letterer: HdE

HdE has been lettering comic books since 2010, having slapped fonts down on books published by Source Point Press, Attic Studios, Dark Horse, Darby Pop, Aspen Comics and Devil's Due Publishing.

He also writes and presents 'HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show' on YouTube, an acclaimed but under-watched show in which he examines video games from every era.

What is the Money For?

Comic books are expensive to make.  The artwork for a single issue can easily cost between $4,000 and $5,000 dollars (or more).  In order to raise the money to pay my art team I have sold off large portions of my personal comic book collection, attended comic book conventions to sell copies of Side-Kicked Volume 1, and ran two successful Kickstarter campaigns.

I now have enough cash to cover the art costs for Side-Kicked Volume 2: Issue #1 (Chapter 5).

The $3,000 Goal amount represents the money I will need to pay for printing costs for the physical copies of the comic and mini-prints, and packaging/shipping costs.

I am not keeping any money for myself.  This campaign is all about the production of the comic.

A successful campaign means I will have new product to bring to conventions to sell and continue to save funds toward the artwork for the next issue.

What Rewards Are Available?

How Will Your Books Be Packaged?

All comics will be individually bagged with boards.  Backers at the $15 Print Edition Reward Tier will have their books shipped in ULINE Stay-Flat envelopes.  All Backers at Physical Reward Tiers above $15 will have their books shipped in Gemini Comic Supply Flash Mailers.

Original Art will be secured in hard plastic top-loaders, sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard in a large bubble mailer.

I will be handling fulfillment, personally, so any problems can be directed straight to me and I can fix your problem without delay.

(True Story:  Months after my last campaign ended and the rewards had been shipped I got an e-mail from a backer.  He told me that he never received his comics.  I immediately put together a new package for him, drove it to the post office the next day, and he received his books just a few days later.  Nearly a year later, his original package was returned to me, having apparently spent several months in a Houston sorting facility.  Crazy)

THANK YOU

Thank you for taking the time to explore my Kickstarter campaign.  

Any contribution you can make to this project is greatly appreciated (and if you can't do it with money, consider helping by spreading the word).

If you decide to become a Backer, please consider leaving a Comment letting me know where you heard about this project (Facebook, Twitter, Website Forum, a Friend, My mom, etc...). Marketing a comic book campaign for Kickstarter is very difficult and time consuming. Any information on what worked will help tremendously in the future.  

Thank you!

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk to this project is a delay in production.

Once the Campaign is financed, the completion of the project will fall almost entirely on the shoulders of the creative team. A setback at any stage of development will trickle down (and sometimes compound) and delay the completion of the comics.

With the exception of the seven pages with potential cameo appearances by Backers, the comic is penciled. On top of that, four pages are complete, leaving 18 pages to be inked, colored and lettered.

There are also the typical risks of printing cost increases, shipping cost increases and shipping delays (not to mention the unknown costs of replacing lost or damaged Backer Rewards).

I have done my best to build these unknown costs into the Pledge Goal, but there is always a risk.

After running two successful Kickstarter campaigns for Chapter 1-4, I am quite confident that I can produce all of the Rewards offered and deliver them in a timely manner.

A look at the Updates from those Campaigns will also show that I update Backers regularly (weekly or bi-weekly) so that there are no surprises.
