Once more unto the breach...
The first volume of True Patriot was released this past summer and our fans immediately demanded more! So we're back for a second volume scheduled for release summer 2014. This campaign is to raise funds to cover the cost of production, printing, shipping, and fulfillment of rewards for a 104-page, full colour, limited hardcover edition of True Patriot: Volume 2.
Creators returning for "2rue" Patriot include Adrian Alphona (Uncanny X-Force), Andy Belanger (Kill Shakespeare), J. Bone (Rocketeer), Jack Briglio (Scooby Doo), Scott Chantler (Two Generals), Tom Fowler (Quantum & Woody), Adam Gorham (Zero), Faith Erin Hicks (The Last of Us), Fred Kennedy (Teuton), Tim Levins (Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes), Ramon Perez (Tale of Sand), Ron Salas (Dracula: Company of Monsters), Jay Stephens (Secret Saturdays), J. Torres (Bigfoot Boy), and Howard Wong (After the Cape).
New patriots joining us this time around include Paul Rivoche (Mister X) and Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth)!
While the star of the show here is the 104-page, full colour, limited hardcover edition of True Patriot: Volume 2 (SRP $24.99), we're also offering a number of other cool rewards including bookplates with sketches, opportunities to appear in a story, exclusive prints, original art, as well as a book bundle just for our comic book retailer friends. On top of that, we're offering True Patriot merchandise such as stickers, notebooks, sketchbooks, and t-shirts as part of other reward bundles.
As an added bonus, Jay Stephens has written and drawn a special 4-page Arrowhead story just for this Kickstarter! Tune in here every Wednesday during the campaign for a new page. Tell all your family and friends! Lure them here with the promise of free comics!
We'll include this story in the PDF, and also the book if we hit our first stretch goal...
If we hit our main goal of $20,000, we humbly submit the following stretch goals.
$22,000 - To add 8 pages to the book upping the page count to 112
$24,000 - To add 8 more pages upping the page count to 120
$27,000 - We print a TPB of Volume 1 for wider distribution
Should we raise anything above that, we'll consider a TPB of Volume 2 for wider distribution as well. We'd also love to compensate our creators for their hard work and artistry and have them profit as much as possible from this project. Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges
With this many different comic book creators involved, scheduling and getting everyone to meet deadlines can pose a challenge. However, after successfully fulfilling one crowd-funded campaign, we've learned a lot and we're confident that we can pull it off again. We thank our fans for their support, patience, and enthusiasm for True Patriot. We just know that you'll love Volume 2!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
