We made it! But we can still make the book even better! Here are some awesome Stretch Goals you can get, too!

Whoa, whoa. Hold on. Let's level-set here. First, tell me...

NIGHTSMOKE is a young adult superhero comic by me, Scott Drummond! I started this project five years ago as a webcomic, and the first volume was collected through a successful Kickstarter a few years back.

Since then, I've been working on an action-packed followup to that book, which is now going to be collected in a matching perfect-bound softcover book through this very Kickstarter! And I ouldn't be more excited!

The book! This is what we're making! It's going to be awesome!
The book! This is what we're making! It's going to be awesome!

 

After a terrible lab accident, David finds his father dead and his friend Mariana badly injured, but he miraculously has the ability to turn into smoke! He tries to get the others help, but when the police think he is the one who caused the explosion, he flies away. 

Wracked with guilt, David confides in his father's lab partner, Dr. Meldrick Luent, who claims to want to help David get expunge his powers. But the good doctor may not be all that he seems...

Yeah, this doesn't seem like a good situation to find yourself in.

There are tons of twists, turns and action to keep you guessing what's going on throughout the book!

BOOKS!

NIGHTSMOKE: Volume One & NIGHTSMOKE Volume Two: Up for Air
NIGHTSMOKE: Volume One & NIGHTSMOKE Volume Two: Up for Air

NIGHTSMOKE Volume Two: Up for Air will be a 60+ page perfect-bound softcover book, that matches Volume One, so they'll look great together on your shelf. It collects comics fifty-eight pages of comics from the webcomic, and adds a three page epilogue that won't be available anywhere else!

In case you haven't read the first book, I'm offering that one here, as well, so they'll ship at the same time and you can enjoy all the NIGHTSMOKE all at once.

Additionally, I'm offering a reward tier where I will do a pencil and ink sketch in your book! Talk about customization!

If this reward fills up, I will add another, but with a later delivery date. I want to make sure yours looks great!

PRINTS!

Gorgeous 11x17" giclée prints. Get one or the whole set!
Gorgeous 11x17" giclée prints. Get one or the whole set!

While I was making these books, I made individual issues of the pages I had finished and sold them at conventions. I had a great time making the covers for these, so now I'm offering them as beautiful 11"x17" prints!

These giclée beauties will be printed on 100 lb., 100-bright paper that's incredibly high quality. These will also ship flat, so there's no risk of damage. You'll be able to get just one, or all three for the price of two!

ORIGINAL ART!

Ink and marker sketch examples. Let's have some fun with these!

NIGHTSMOKE is made digitally, but I love working with traditional media. For these rewards, I'll be working with ink and Copic markers on Strathmore 400 Series Mixed Media paper and mailing them flat with the prints and books. You can choose any already-established character for these rewards. For other commissions or questions, feel free to shoot me an email at scottdrummondart@gmail.com. I'm more than happy to discuss them!

BE IN THE BOOK!

You could be in the book!
You could be in the book!

That's right! There are three reward spots where you (yes, you!) could appear in the book! In the epilogue, I have three brand new characters, one of which could bear your likeness! I will tell the backers at this reward level what happens in the epilogue and let them choose (by order of who backed first) which of the new characters they would like to be! 

  • Just as a disclaimer, the characters appearing in the book all must be adults, so if you want a kid to be in the book, I may age them up a little bit to accommodate that request. Also, *spoiler alert* must be okay with killing and/or being killed.

Pricing

Thank You

NIGHTSMOKE has been a huge part of my life for the past five years, and I'm so incredibly excited to share this next chapter with you. Thanks so much for checking out this project, backing it and/or sharing it with your friends/family/etc on social media. With your help, we can make this book a reality!

Another special thank you to my friends Dusty Fann and Eric Paul for loaning me some great equipment to help me get this video made. You guys are awesome!

Risks and challenges

There's very little risk to backing this project, I'm happy to say! The book is completely finished, except for the epilogue, and since this is my second comic book Kickstarter project, I'm incredibly confident that I'll be able to get the rewards printed and shipped in an incredibly timely manner!
