Vigilance is a hero that we need right now. A strong female hero that can stand on her own away from the shadow of any male counterpart. Michael Watson feels so strongly about this need that he made Vigilance the strongest character in the entire Hotshotverse!!!

This campaign will help us to print and release our Vigilance series. We have multiple issues completed in the series with more issues planned out for production and we thought as we just did with our Hotshot series (successfully funded and released thanks to you guys), why not bring the entire series to Kickstarter for fans to enjoy!!!

Beyond having just Vigilance featured we also wanted to continue to introduce you to the rest of the Hotshotverse!!! So we're also adding completed issues of The Cypher to this Kickstarter for release as well as they take you deeper into the Hotshotverse and introduce you to other characters that can potentially pop up in stories with Vigilance in the near future.

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. We've proven this fact with our #WeAlwaysDeliver campaign promise that has allowed us to deliver our books directly to our backers immediately following the completion of our campaigns!!!

All of the funding will go towards the production of new issues including expenses for the creative team to make this project perfect! Multiple books are complete with only some fine tuning being done to them!!! Check out some of the pages below!

We have more apparel that we'll post in the updates as the campaign progresses....But beyond the apparel we have the newest issue of Vigilance that will be available as well as some AWESOME Variant covers that we're going to be offering on this campaign as well. 

The first of those variant covers is for a hilarious Tie-In to the fun that we had with our Gritt vs. Unstoppable Covers as we had Hotshot make a cameo on the Variant Cover to that issue. So we decided to have Gritt and Glory cameo with Hotshot on the cover to Vigilance #1 for some good conversation with artwork provided by Gritt series artists D.C. Stuelpner.

We didn't do a variant cover for issue #2 of Vigilance as we have that issue available for the Cameo Cover Option. So if you want to see yourself or your own original character grace the cover for Vigilance #2, make sure you check out that reward.

We've also ADDED an AMAZING "Natural Beauty" Variant CVR B courtesy of artist Ren McKinzie that looks stunning!!! While it's not listed in the rewards to the right, this cover will be added to the Cameo Cover & Variant Party Reward!!!

We are also very excited to have our first Cosplay Cover Variant. The production on this cover was tons of fun as we intermingled our LIVE action cosplay artist Kayla with a digitally rendered version of the villainous VOID to create this stellar piece. We'll only be printing a limited supply of these.

Of course, a campaign from us wouldn't be right without the chance to score some cool action figures of our characters (or action figures of YOU or YOUR ORIGINAL CHARACTERS for that matter).

And since she debuted in our Hotshot series, we've also made the Hotshot Action Figure available as well.

Risks and challenges

As we did on our previous two campaigns......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.
