BRAUN is a passion project I've worked on for several years; a story that I'm excited to finally share. It’s a layered action story combining mystery, sci-fi and adventure. This hardcover will only be distributed through Kickstarter.
This action-adventure stars Maven and Braun, her highly-advanced robot guardian who's the last link to her missing parents. In the world of Decca City, governing corporations called Politicorps are constantly battling to win votes using the latest and greatest populist tech for the teeming masses. To get their hands on competitor tech, Axiom Global take over the robot reclamation facility where Maven and Braun work. Braun is flagged as an “employee of interest” because of his mysterious internal parts signatures. Axiom learns that Braun may be part of a secret project that evaded their grasp 20 years ago, and Braun and Maven go on the run. In the fight for survival, Maven finds out the truth about Axiom, her missing parents... and a darker secret that changes her world forever.
I've been running the webcomic in grayscale on my site for the past several months. Check out the FIRST CHAPTERS for FREE. The goal is to finally share with a broader audience the color version and lot of extras unavailable anywhere else.
I've been an indie comic creator for just over a decade. I've also run a successful freelance business where I provide concept art, video editing and storyboard work to a wide range of national and international clients. Maybe you've seen my video tutorials on my Youtube Channel called THE PROCESS. I've worked on books like Fear Agent, Hawaiian Dick, The Overman series for Image as well as my own graphic novels, North Country and Things Undone.
If you're fan of classic sci-fi adventure, with cute girls and robots, a dash of humor and fresh art, then I think you'll really dig this! The book is laid out and ready for pre-press, proofing and printing. I've contacted an overseas printer whose work I've admired for a very long time. I figure I have one shot at making the book the way I want it, but now I want to hear from you. Let's check out some of the cool stuff I've added...
All images are for reference. They may not include the full list of items.

Risks and challenges
The book is ready for pre-press. The original art premiums are finished. The printer is overseas so there is some risk involved but considering they print for comic companies in the states as well as a lot of Kickstarter projects, I'm confident that they can handle the work smoothly.
I've worked with many of the suppliers for the premiums and have been happy with the results. Commissions will take a little longer and I have estimated the time accordingly hence the later ship dates.
Because I am a freelancer I dictate much of my time and have opened up my schedule to handle order fulfillment as quickly as possible. Still, I am one person.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
