$13,500

     If we hit this STRETCH GOAL, everyone who donated $50 to $110 will get a second copy of the comic, signed by Siike, with ANY variant they would like, MINUS the Kevin Eastman Retailer one. Sorry. That's still just for retailers. 

     If you donated at $111 or more and we hit this number, when we print the future Con Exclusive (Con TBD, aiming for SDCC) by Transformers artist, Livio Ramondelli, you will receive this variant before it's available to anyone else. Imagine Solestar as a giant robot, fighting one of his Godzilla-sized villains from the story, drawn by the guy who did the image below.

Me and Dan at Harmontown 1/7/13

     The plot revolves around Isamu Takahashi, a Japanese man that gets his powers during the bombing of Hiroshima. Waking in that disaster, he chose to use his powers to help rebuild his country. Over time he learned that he no longer aged like everyone else.

     In 2013, he meets the love of his life, Ashley. They get married, but 20 years after the day they met, she passes away from a brain aneurysm. When the story opens, it's Christmas Eve of the year 2099, the anniversary of the day he met Ashley. 

     After over 150 years of life, Solestar knows that today will be his last day alive. He's sensed this day coming for a while. He accepts it, knowing he's lived a long, good life. Still, his compassion for mankind won't allow him to leave the world the way it is. 

      Being the last superhero on Earth, and knowing that some of his villains still exist, waiting for him to die so that they can take over the world, Solestar embarks on his most difficult journey yet- to turn the bad guys good. From villains that control the elements (Boom & Cloud), to giant Godzilla-like monsters, irradiated men (Hotoke), and ending with his greatest enemy of all (Yuu Hasashi), Solestar aims to find the good in all of us, one last time. 

       "Give more to this world than what you take from it. Endure the bad. Embrace the good. All life is connected, all life is worth saving."

     The story is told in 5 chapters. Chapters 1-4 are 11 pages each and chapter 5 is 20 pages. The rest of the 96 page book features unused art, designs, information on brain aneurysms, and more. Solestar's origin isn't told in this book. The story focuses heavily on his last day on Earth. If this is a success, we'd like to create two more Solestar books, going backwards in his life, creating a reverse trilogy. We start at his death, and end at his rebirth. We'd also like each book to help with a different cause. Help us reach our goal so that can happen.

     We are solely raising money for two things: printing the book and covering the cost of our Kickstarter prizes, such as shirts, prints, wristbands, etc, with more being announced throughout our campaign.

     Cross Blue Overseas Printing in Chino, CA gave us a great deal on these books. We can now print around 4,000 copies of Solestar, at very high quality. We aim to get this book into as many hands as possible through Diamond Comics Distributors, Inc, and Cross Blue is now allowing us to ship more with their incredible prices. 

     The remaining money after printing the books will help cover the cost of our Kickstarter Prizes so that we are also delivering the best quality in shirts, prints, wristbands, and properly shipping the books as well as the original art we're offering.

     The reasons printing the most books we can afford is important, is NOT because I want to build a fort with all the boxes in my small apartment, but it serves our end goal. As long as it doesn't conflict with the agreement we made with Kickstarter, I'd like to use the money I make from selling the final books later this year for something selfless- to help other aneurysm victims like myself, and those who have it worse. 

     $11,000 is a very humble and realistic goal for what we want to do. Please help us reach it and allow us to start 2013 off with something positive, and potentially save a few lives.

     Indy artists, big names, and legends unite in a single comic to tell one of the most personal journeys a superhero has ever gone through. Only on this book can you see a page drawn in pencil by an Indy artist, then inked by a comic book superstar, followed up with colors and letters from two extremely talented people that you may not have heard of. 

     Solestar is a one-of-a-kind comic book experience that will not only deliver beautiful artwork from over 60 different artists, but will hopefully present something new on an emotional level for the reader. With even bigger plans for it after it's distributed, (if granted a successful Kickstarter) Solestar could very well become the first of its kind, using artwork for a cause it's never been used for.

     Add your name next to the many talented people coming together on this project. Whether you pencil, ink, color, or letter... we still need help wrapping up the final 4 pages of this book. 

     Get involved with this, potentially, once in a lifetime opportunity. If you're breaking in to comics, rocking it at the Indy level, or have created and kept icons alive for years, we would love to have you on board. Just contact us at one of the links below...

     On one of our tiers, we have a great offer from a few of our artists. Jenai Pellerin and Kate Carleton have offered up their original artwork pages, along with a number of other artists - including some of the artwork you've seen above, so that you can own an actual page from this great book. Jenai and Kate also have gone a step further and offered up a commission drawing, in limited supply, of any character of your choosing. Below are Kate and Jenai's original pages of art, followed by samples of Kate's recent commission work.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Originally our Risks and Challenges were finding artists to help us finish the book. I'm happy to say that since launching this Kickstarter, we are only searching for around 4 more artists.

I will say that doing these 4 pages, while still getting in the other ones that were due this week, and getting it all print ready by the time our Kickstarter ends may seem impossible, but I've been so pleased and grateful on the talents that have come together this far to keep us on schedule.

We still email around 10-15 artists a day, discussing and sharing their pages so that other artists have stuff to work off of, and with my horrible memory, it has been hard keeping it all together. Luckily I have two great editors in Gene Hoyle and Richard Caldwell that are limiting how stressful these risks and challenges can be.

We have Chapters 1-4 nearly completed, and are currently wrapping up Chapter 5, our final chapter in the graphic novel. This leaves our last obstacle of reaching our goal and using that money to print, which hopefully is as easy at it sounds. We want the book print ready by mid January so that it will be ready for its release in Orlando, FL in March for MegaCon 2013. It's a challenge alright, but one I hope we can overcome.

FAQ

  • This amount allows us to not only print close to 4,000 copies of Solestar, which an amount that size is imperative to our end goals with the project, but it also gives us enough left over to get high quality T-Shirts made, wristbands, high quality prints, and so much more without having to dip into our own pockets, which I promise you, my pockets do not go deep.

  • To me, everything. His heart, his outlook on the world, and how no matter how bad things get, he believes the world, and its inhabitants, can be better. He sees the good in us when we can't or won't. That's rare in this day of cynicism.

    Last updated:
  • First off, it's never really been done before. We've had single issues done like this in the past, some for different charities, but this takes that to the next level. Plus on those previous versions, it was either Marvel or DC, using Marvel or DC artists only, most of whom got paid for their work. THIS project truly unites people under a much more selfless banner. NO ONE on this is getting paid, and EVERYONE on this is from a different level of the artistic world. Some have worked at Marvel, DC, or Image, while others you've never heard of, but are extremely talented. Some do their art in tattoo ink, while others do the more traditional pencil/inks/colors method. A few paint, others do everything digitally. Having everyone donate a page makes this project bigger than me or any single person involved. It's now all of ours and that separates it from any other comic project currently on Kickstarter.

    Last updated:
  • I'm relearning how to draw. The aneurysm stripped me, or tried to, of my ability. I'm fighting my way back. Originally I wanted to draw this entire book, but there's no way for that to be possible at this time. I am drawing one page (Chapter 3, Page 11) and doing one of the variant covers, with inks by the man/myth/legend himself, Kevin Eastman.

    Last updated:
  • I'm not sure. I literally have no money. My credit is awful, the job I work allows me enough to eat and take care of my dog, and maybe pay rent on time, but that's it. If we don't hit our goal, I will be sitting on a finished comic book. I guess I'd try to save up enough money to print a few hundred and sell those, then use that money to print more, but then it will take me ever to get to my end goal, so I'm not sure what I'll do. I guess I'll cross that bridge if I come to it.

    Last updated:
  • Hopefully lives will be saved. That's the end goal. We can't use Kickstarter to promote or raise money for a charity, and there are other rules as well, so we don't want to break or dishonor the agreement we made with Kickstarter. That being said, after the book is out, and released through Diamond, we hope there's a way to do something selfless with THOSE profits. Knowledge is power, so by having a comic with a small message in the story, that alone could save thousands, if not millions. Still, something has to be done to come up with better treatments so others out there don't have to live in the pain that I do every single day. My end goal is to save someone's life through art and this project, it's just a matter of figuring out how.

    THE "YUU HASASHI" TIER: Ever wanted to be drawn into a comic book? What about starring in the final 20 pages as the Main Villain? Well this Tier is your chance! On top of getting the three 8x10 prints, the wallpapers, and signed Rhino... you get a Dedication in the book as our biggest supporter, you get a credit in the book as co-creator of the villain, Likeness rights, and you get a page of original artwork from the graphic novel, featuring you as the villain, signed by the artist. Since you are also donating so much, we will throw in an extra T-Shirt, both with an extra personalized message about you being our biggest contributor printed on both shirts, and you will get (because I doubt a Retailer would be upset over this considering how much you donated) Covers A, B, & C of the Graphic Novel, along with Cover E featuring Kevin Eastman's art. If I can work out getting Kevin's cover signed by him, I will. You will also get Cover D upon it's completion, which is our MegaCon 2013 Con Exclusive Cover, featuring art by Graven & Monica Ravenwolf, signed by them both, which will feature an homage cover to the original Crisis storyline from DC, where Superman's holding a dead Supergirl in his arms. PIC SOON. You also get to be on an episode of our Nerd Nation podcast to talk about donating, and how cool it feels to be a villain in a comic book; especially one as unique as this. IMPORTANT NOTE: The person who donates this will have to sign a release form, allowing us to use your likeness, and be okay with us putting you in the role of super villain. We know we have a not of nice friends, family, and fans out there that want to be drawn in our book, so we want you to be okay with being evil in fictional form.
