Sinners

This morning, Hope Martinez woke up dead in a derelict apartment. To make matters worse, Danny, her on-off boyfriend, and the only person she comes close to trusting, lies murdered in the hallway outside.

Shocked and confused, Hope runs, but only as far as the mysterious limousine parked outside the building.

Sheltering inside from the cops, the chauffeur tells her the limo is now hers, and she must now go wherever the GPS tells her to collect the sinners.

Before she can find out anything else, the chauffeur opens the trunk and gets sucked in, in a blinding flash of light.

Now Hope is alone, with the limo, the GPS, and the whole of the US in front of her...

Sinners Volume One

Collected in this bumper volume are Sinners issues 1 to 4, each issue a 32 page, full colour, comic, combined into a 132-page omnibus covering the first 24 hours of Hope's new journey.

The 'Sinners' comic series is 12 issues in total. Seven of the issues will cover the seven deadly sins, and the rest build the story.

As well as Hope, we also discover where Danny, her murdered boyfriend, has ended up, and follow him on his journey into other realms.

Why Kickstarter?

We're running the 'Sinners Volume One' Kickstarter campaign to help raise the funds for printing.

Using Kickstarter, we're able to reward our backers by offering Kickstarter exclusive rewards, as well as the guarantee you'll be receiving the book first!  

'Sinners Volume One' is 100% complete and, bar the backers' names being put into the book, ready to go to print.

Kickstarter is a fantastic site, which helps us reach as many people as possible, and we're always delighted to hear the great feedback we receive from our fans.

Campaign Timeline

The 'Sinners Volume One' campaign runs mid-January to mid-February. We'll send out surveys in late February, print the book and create the merchandise in March/April, before sending the books out to the backers in late April.

We have contingency built into this model, to cater for any unforeseen delays.

Thank You

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at our campaign. If you've got this far, then we hope you've found it interesting.

I loved creating Sinners Volume One, and I hope it will intrigue and surprise you!

 

Risks and challenges

Since 2015, Blue Fox Comics have directly run twelve successful comic book Kickstarters, and have helped three other projects get funded.

We have a very good understanding of exactly what it takes, not only to run a Kickstarter campaign, but to successfully deliver on the rewards.

'Sinners Volume One' is complete, with the only outstanding tasks being to add backers names and portraits to the back of the book.

As soon as those tasks are complete, we can send the book to the printers.

Should any issues arise, we will let you know immediately, along with any action we need to take.

Feel free to look at our previous Kickstarter campaigns for evidence of our ability to successfully communicate with our backers post-campaign.

Thank you.
