What is NIGHTSMOKE, you ask? Well, I'll tell you! For the past year and a half, I've been updating NIGHTSMOKECOMIC.com with the continuing story of David, a teenager who moves to a new city with his parents and just wants to fit in. He meets Mariana, a fun-loving risk taker, and the two proceed to get themselves into more trouble than they can get out of.

There's awkward teenagers, bad ideas and, of course, superpowers.

NIGHTSMOKE: Volume One is the collection of this first year and a half's comics, put together in a nice, around sixty page, perfect-bound book. I really think you're going to love it!

Plus, there's a Kickstarter-exclusive print available, too!

I'm glad you asked! I'm also including in the campaign an exclusive  NIGHTSMOKE print! They're 13" by 19" and will be signed and numbered, so you know that's some fancy stuff.

Pretty cool, huh? Alright, I'll bet you want to know what the backer rewards are next, don't you?

Look how in sync we are! And to help you out, I've made this handy chart. Talk about preparation, huh.

Find something you like? Awesome! Snag it!

What's a Kickstarter without stretch goals?! I'm so happy to give you guys more stuff the better the project does. After all, you're making this happen, why shouldn't you get the rewards? So tell all your friends! You could get these awesome rewards!

Anything else?

Of course! How could I forget? Here ya go:

Cool! And if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment here on the Kickstarter! I'll be doing my best to respond as quickly as possible.

Thank you so much for your support!

Risks and challenges

I think the risks are pretty minimal with this Kickstarter. The art for the book is already done and laid out in InDesign, about 95% ready for print as I type this. During the 30 day funding period, I'm going to be in communication with the printer, making sure the book is ready to print almost as soon as funding closes.

I've also been in communication with distribution companies, so if the project gets too big for me to pack and ship out on my own, I'll pass those duties off to them, so you can get your stuff on time.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please, please, please leave them in the comments! I want you to feel confident pledging to this project. :)
