Stick Vet Comics are about Veteran life in the civilian sector. The comics are a way of communicating truth through humor by describing the challenges Veterans face after serving in the military. In this manner Stick Vet has proven successful in accomplishing much more than just joking about the situations Veterans face.

  • Stick Vet Comics help Veterans recognize they are not alone and promotes unity in the Veteran community.
  • Stick Vet also bridges the gap of understanding between Civilians and Veterans. In this way the comics have become a powerful communication tool for relationships.
  • In our fight to stop Veteran suicide, Stick Vet also brings awareness in a way that Vets can relate to. Encouraging Veterans to reach out to each other and stay connected.

This Kickstarter will empower me to write Stick Vet Comics as a full time job rather than a part time hobby. This crowdfunding will allow me to open an online store to sell Stick Vet hats, T-shirts, posters, books, etc. Stick Vet has been growing rapidly and already has 24,000 followers who are eager to support me and many have been asking to buy products. With an online store I will be able to fully commit to writing more comics every week, devote time to interacting with the Veteran Community, start consistent livecast videos, and start speaking at Veteran events.

This Kickstarter will enable me to order a large quantity of hats and shirts in order to start selling Stick Vet products.  It will also get me the funds necessarily to professionally upgrade the website www.stickvet.com and have an online store created.

Risks and challenges

What's most important for people to understand is that Kickstarter is an all or nothing platform. If I do not hit my goal of $5,000, I don't receive anything. This will be my first Kickstarter, and my biggest challenge has been trying to communicate my genuine enthusiasm for this project, without feeling like I'm bugging people.

So we're asking you to please donate to the Kickstarter and share it with every Veteran you know. Everything has been priced and calculated, the comics are mostly finished. Of the 115 comics for this book I have finished 108.
I will keep my backers up to date with the progress of this Kickstarter.
