"Steeped in supernatural weirdness, Sinners might be a competitor for the seminal Hellblazer... it’s not a series you’ll want to miss out on."

Just Added - Level 500 - An 8 Page Sinners Comic About You!
Ever want to have a comic written solely about you! Here's your chance. There are 3 spaces available for backers to have an exclusive 8 page comic written about them!
It's a fantastic opportunity to see you and your friends in your own comic! Best hurry is you're interested! Hope's a busy gal!
SINNERS is an original ongoing, mature reader, comic series about a young homeless Hispanic girl named Hope Martinez, who wakes up dead one morning, discovers her boyfriend murdered nearby, and gets given a Limo to drive around the US gathering the sinners guided by the somewhat creepy GPS.
Every Sinners issue is a 32 page, full colour, comic. beautifully drawn and printed, which will sit proudly on its own or within your comic collection!
Issue 2 is called 'Before a Fall', and is the first of our seven deadly sins issues, dealing with Pride.
The main character is called Craig, a band roadie, and son of a wealthy lady who has sponsored part of the band's latest tour.
Annoyed at the band's attitude towards him, he takes things into his own hands, and just when he thinks his day can't get any worse, he runs into Hope.
In this world of endless Sinners, our reward levels offer a brief interlude, and allow us the chance to become a little more saintly (in the eyes of the Sinners Comic Book team, anyway!).
Please note the Digital Media Pack includes a PDF version of the comic!
Below you'll see more information on specific rewards, including pictures.

Gone Issue #1 (PDF @ Level 1+)
Gone is a Sci-Fi mystery comic also written by Simon Birks. There will be a Kickstarter running for Issue 2 after this campaign finishes, and I'll send out more information sooner to the time.
You've sinned. Stop protesting (and why are you not protesting?), you know it and I know it. It kind of links us all. Some of them are big sins (shame on you), and some of them are the everyday sins that have become part of your life. They're nothing, right? They're secrets, right? No-one will ever know? Unless you're Hope, and you drive a special Limousine that knows everyone's darkest secrets. Its job is truly endless. Remove a sinner, and move on to the next one.
But that's not all. Who is Hope? Why was she chosen? How did she die? Where is Danny, her (sort of) boyfriend? Who is the shining girl watching her? There are many questions that need answering, and over 12 issues, the shocking answers are revealed.
Hope is a Sinner, she admits it, and one day, she's going to make you admit it, too.
Issue 2 is finished. All 32 pages of striking pictures are complete, and it's now ready to be printed. One great way of doing this is to use Kickstarter to generate the money needed for printing by creating a type of pre-ordering project. You pay for your copy of the comic, and that money goes directly into printing and shipping the comic book to you.
Not only that, but it spreads the message about the comic, and starts generating great interest! Plus we can create some extra special rewards just for you! Every single penny/cent/etc raised in this Kickstarter goes straight back into the Sinners Comic Book.
Support us, receive a great comic, and become part of the Sinners family with this unique opportunity!
Simon Birks - Writer & Letterer
I'm Simon Birks. I write stuff. I DON'T draw (don't ask, it's not pretty). Which is a shame. And also not a shame. Because if I could draw, I wouldn't have met RHStewart (Sinners sequential artist) and Erol Debris (Cover Artist). Boy, can these people draw. And they're very nice people too!
But I don't just write comics (though there are three more in the works as I write). I write screenplays also, and am proud to say that a movie I co-wrote (The Search for Simon - watch it on Blinkbox!) not only won best screenplay, but was described as "A Triumph!" by Terry Jones, and "Very Silly!" by Michael Palin. It doesn't get any better than that!
I also wrote a six part sitcom called Last Contact which featured Norman Lovett (Holly from Red Dwarf). I've also written plays, comedy sketches, a novel and a couple of novellas for The Doctor Who Project. I also act a bit, because why have any spare time?
RHStewart - Illustrator
Name is Roy, I was born and raised in London UK, and I now reside in Leeds UK. I have a Degree in Graphic Design & Illustration and my first published Sequential art was for Blue Water comics’ Vincent Price Presents in 2009, I was then asked to come back and illustrate a 4 issue Miniseries 'Roger Corman’s Death Sport Games'.
In the succeeding years I have contributed to a number of anthologies including a successfully funded Kickstarter 'DeadRoots' and Afterlife's ‘Silver Screen’ for Big Punch Studio's , The British Showcase Anthology and Kuruz.
In 2010 I collaborated with BE Active’s transmedia production 'Collider' providing the ‘flashback’ art for the 6 issue series which has now been made into a Emmy nominated feature film.
May 2013 my Aleister Crowley Biography for Markosia was published as a paperback and was later released as a Limited edition Hardback at Thought Bubble comic convention in November 2013.
Erol Debris - Cover Artist
Over the past two years, I've worked with small press publishers in both the US and the UK.
Sinners Origins Story
Sinners started off (and still resides as) eight separate short film scripts. I wrote the first one many years ago, and pitched it to directors. One of the directors, Dan Thorens, loved it, and together we developed the next seven scripts along the lines of the seven deadly sins.
As with a lot of film projects, the costs involved in creating the effects on a short film can be prohibitive in the making of it. Fortunately, the same effects can cost a lot less when drawn in a comic.
It took a couple of years to find the right artist to suit the mood of the book. It's a noir type story, and it was only after walking around many comic-cons (yeah, like I minded!) that I found RHStewart's work.
Thankfully he loved the story, and over the past few months, Issue 1 has been developed. These guys really know how to draw, and have created something incredibly special and professional.
Risks and challenges
As mentioned, Issue 2 is complete! Writing, drawing and lettering all done! This Kickstarter is a way to pre-order the comic, and generate ongoing interest in Sinners. If we get all our funds, the comic gets printed, the other rewards get produced and it all gets sent to you with a pretty bow! (I lied about the pretty bow.)
So, risks are truly minimal! Bar Hope paying us a visit in the Limousine and all of existence ending, you're going to get your book!
Of course, if any setbacks occur, we'll let you know immediately, and make alternative plans quickly and efficiently.
As also mentioned, Issues 3 & 4 are all written, awaiting illustration. Sinners is a 12 part story that'll have you enthralled till the end. And then there's bound to be the spinoffs!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
