VIDEO TEXT

Madison, Wisconsin, 1981.

An unexpected publishing event collided with the status quo of the major comic book publishers.

The creators of this event were Mike Baron and Steve Rude -- the comic book was called Nexus.

One part victim, one-part hero, Nexus is forced by his dreams to act as executioner of the most violent mass-murderers in the galaxy.

Artist Steve Rude’s classically-styled artwork pushed the boundaries of graphic storytelling, earning him every major industry award.

In 1998, after nearly one-hundred issues of Nexus, Rude released “The Moth”; a circus daredevil who supplemented his act by moonlighting as a freelance bounty hunter.

Now, after 35 years in the comic book industry, in the style of once hugely popular newspaper comic strips, Rude is excited to announce the revitalization of “nexus” and “the moth”

From the entire team here at Rude Dude Productions, we appreciate your pledge.

BASICS

We’re excited to bring something rare and unique to the comic book industry. A weekly newspaper strip with a mailed subscription! Our goal is to engage readers with superlative story and art from two of the most lauded practitioners currently working in comics, and to also give subscribers a unique experience from the moment the package arrives in the mail.

We will launch this project with a brand new story from the award-winning comic Nexus, which will be chronicled in 35 individual strips, released one strip per week. When our Nexus storyline is completed, it will be followed one week later with a brand new and equally long-running story featuring the Moth!

We plan to partner with a local high school to enable us to ship monthly subscriptions out quickly. The school has a number of educational travel opportunities for students including trips to Costa Rica, a West Coast College Tour, and Washington DC. Rude Dude will make a donation to the school to be divided among travel accounts for students who come out and help. We hope to enable students that may not otherwise be able to afford travel to see the world.

CREATIVE TEAM:

Here’s the fantastic creative team for both Nexus and the Moth:

GOAL/BUDGET:

The goal is $30,000 which covers expenses for 3 months.

The budget is broken down below with estimated costs of nearly $113,000 for the year.  This is assuming 500 subscriptions total mailed monthly for 12 months in the US.  Creator cost is around $36,000; postage/shipping/supplies is $65,000 and Kickstarter/Credit Card fees around $12,000.

REWARDS

There are 5 basic editions (scroll down for further details).

• Digital only,
• Newspaper only,
• Basic Edition,
• Premium Edition, and
• Retailer Edition

Special Editions include:

• Original Art Edition, and
• Anniversary Appearance Edition

All levels come with the option of 1 or 12 month subscriptions. 1 month subscriptions will have the exclusive option to continue at the same rate with the same benefits. Annual subscriptions have extra benefits that you can only receive as a Kickstarter backer with a 1 year prepaid subscription.

We expect Nexus to run for approximately 8-9 months to then be followed by the MOTH.

The strips will be offered online for FREE (with the option to “buy us a coffee”) or for a minimal charge to download as well as downloadable through Comixology. Printed newspapers will be printed the month after digital release collecting all the strips released the previous month. (i.e., Nexus digital released weekly in September will be collected in an actual newspaper mailed out in October).  Paper will be at least 8 pages with extra bonus material not included in the digital release.

When the entire Nexus run is completed we do have plans to collect it into an oversized book.

We are limiting the initial release to the number of Kickstarter backers. This means that subscriptions will initially NOT be available to the public.

Risks and challenges

This will be our 3rd and largest Kickstarter. We are making each Edition level as simple as possible to expedite mailing.

Steve is already more than halfway through drawing and inking the Nexus series and we plan to not release anything until the first 35 strips are penciled, lettered, inked, and with the colorist. This keeps us ahead of schedule.

Budget willing we plan to hire an accountant and overall project manager. Steve's wife is already acting personal assistant, accountant, and a dozen other duties. Having a dedicated project manager will ensure a smooth workflow.
