This campaign will help us to print and release remastered versions of the ENTIRE Hotshot series. We are up to issue #8 in the series with more issues planned out for production and we thought why not bring the entire series to Kickstarter for fans to enjoy!!!

We didn't want to fill up this page with covers so we'll be showcasing more of the covers (and pages) in the updates throughout the campaign!!! 

So why are we bringing this project to Kickstarter? The short answer...we need the funding to continue to produce and print these books...The long answer....we LOVE the Kickstarter community and feel that this project can have a greater amount of reach to fans that will appreciate something different using a direct market approach than we feel it will have going through distributors.

Freestyle Komics spent years following the traditional models of releasing comics and have now partnered with Short Fuse Media Group to expand into more non-traditional methods to reach a newer audience for their titles and diverse universe of characters.

All of the funding will go towards the production of new issues including expenses for the creative team to make this project perfect! The project is just about completely remastered with only some fine tuning being done to it!!! Check out some of the pages being remastered below! 

 

 

 

 More pages will be posted on EVERY UPDATE during this campaign!!!!

Risks and challenges

THIS CAMPAIGN WILL BEGIN DELIVERING REWARDS THE SAME WEEK THE CAMPAIGN ENDS!!!

We've managed all of the risks associated with this project by doing the leg work before this campaign's launch.

We understand the importance of fulfilling our promises and always ensure that all of our supporters receive their rewards. And we always find ways to sneak extra swag into our reward packages as a thank you for the patience in supporting our projects on the front end and patiently waiting for them to be completed and delivered....so we can focus on the fun part.....making comics!!!

It's because of your continued support that we are able to make these AWESOME comics! And for that we truly appreciate ALL of our backers and keep a wide open form of communication for you all to reach us at any time.

So what are you waiting for! Check out the rewards to the right and sign up to get in on the action! Share this campaign with your friends and family that LOVE comics like us. And stay tuned for more announcements throughout this entire campaign. Thanks for checking out this campaign. We hope you will become a backer.
