Hey! I'm Selena Ahmed and I make the comic Vindicaris! I've been working on it since May 2017, and first started publishing it January 2018. I recently graduated college with my degree in Animation and Game Art, and am currently trying to kickstart my career as a full-time webcomic artist!

Vindicaris is a scifi/action comic about Periodica: artificial soldiers embodying the Periodic Elements.

The story follows Ces and Sel: two rogue Periodica on their quest for revenge against their own creators. Along the way, they must combat gangs, other Periodica, and their own moral conflicts.

Warning: This comic contains violent and gory content.

Vindicaris Book One is softcover,  6" x 9", and about 280 pages. It will contain the prologue and first three chapters of the comic, along with whatever cool bonus is unlocked!

The DIGITAL version is a PDF that also comes with animation downloads.

 Twitters: Koolaid-Girl | Runegod | Kendall | Serpyra

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarter campaign, and while I've done a lot of research I'm still learning as I go along. However I have been printing and shipping comic books and other merch for several years now!

The biggest challenge will be ensuring the rewards are sent out in a timely manner. Production and receiving everything can take months, and I want to ship out rewards with care to avoid any damages. In addition, I’ll be trying to maintain a regular comic update schedule, but the Kickstarter will take priority!

All the artwork is done for the book, the prints, and even the secret rewards. (The only things that would need to be drawn post-funding are the fan-character cameos, profiles, and animations, as those are backer-based). So once the campaign is funded, all that needs to be done is ordering and shipping out rewards!
