Frequently Asked Questions
Oxymoron looks fantastic in terms of art, but I have to ask - to me it just sounds like a whacko guy - basically The Joker on a killing spree. Is there more to this story, because that's all I am seeing?
I'm glad you like the art showcased on the Oxymoron book, and can I understand your concerns. Here's what I can tell you about the writers on the book. We have:
- An Eisner nominee with two well received IDW mini-series under his belt and one on the racks right now.
- A writer of two current series, one by Image Comics and one by DC comics.
- A writer who just landed a gig writing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and has a creator-owned coming soon as well.
- A writer who's contributed to a New York Times best selling graphic novel, with several published books from the top small-press comic companies to his name.
- A writer who just won the 2012 Scottish Independent Comics Award for best writer
- A writer/editor with nearly 20 years experience
- And a number of promising newcomers who I hand selected because I think they have major chops and I want to work with them.
Point being, these guys know how to tell a story and are writing about something more than just gratuitous violence. They wouldn't waste their time on just that.
The Oxymoron character is a psychopath obsessed with contradiction. So it's really a book about contradiction and its many forms.
The stories range from very dark to downright silly...but they all have a point. Yes, there's a lot of violence. It's rated Teen +, or the equivalent of DC Comics darker books.
But yes, there's more to the book than just a killing spree.Last updated:
Sure, I posted and update with all the details on Oxy-Tees. Read it here:
After the campaign has ended, Kickstarter allows me to send out a SURVEY to all backers. In that survey, one of the questions for those who chose a T-shirt package will be to select your shirt(s) and t-shirt size.Last updated:
Not a problem. If you see a reward you want, but you're already locked into another reward that you don't want to lose (ex. a commission or script critique), just send me an email and we can probably work something out. I'm happy to create a "personalized reward level" that will let you get all the goodies you're interested in for a fair price.Last updated:
This is a one-of-a-kind reward that will go to one lucky writer who wants all the support he or she needs to bring their own 22-page comic to life. Editorial support? Check? Artists? Check. Pre-production? Check. It's all here, along with guidance from ComixTribe the entire way.
Choice of Artist
There are 4 OXYMORON contributing artists who are available to for this package to choose from. All of these artists are professionals and have published work to their credit. View more of their work here:
Alex Cormack - http://www.alexcormack.com/Comic_Art_and_Comics.html
Jonathan Rector - http://jonathanrectorart.blogspot.com/
Rafer Roberts - http://plasticfarm.com/
Dave Myers - http://www.davemyersillustration.com/
Artist requests nothing "Hard R" rated, no violence towards children, no sexual stuff, no "furry" stories. Writer has complete ownership of rights.
This package does not constitute a publishing agreement between the writer and ComixTribe. Such an agreement would have to be negotiated separately. However, because of the close involvement of ComixTribe personnel in this project, that option may be on the table. The writer is free to take the completed work to any publisher or self publish.Last updated:
Because this campaign has exceeded expectations, we'll now be able to produce up to 10 variants. The runs on these variants will be very limited (somewhere between 75-150 copies each.)
Backers who have pledged $40 or more will be able to select the variant of their choice. (Note: The $40 pledge level also gives you the bonus THE RED TEN #1 Kickstarter Exclusive variant.)
Because of the limited number of copies of each variant that will be produced, I realized that there is no way I can guarantee that every single person at the $25 level will be able to get the variant of their choice. There simply won't be enough books for me to make that guarantee.
So, I've had to make the "choose your own variant" associated with a higher pledge level of $40 or more. (Which again, also gets you another bonus...THE RED TEN #1 Kickstarter Exclusive Variant.)
WILL THERE BE A DISCOUNT IF YOU ORDER MULTIPLE VARIANTS?
Yes! Right now there is a DOUBLE PACK (save 4% per book) and a FOUR PACK (save 10% per book) pledge level, which now allows you to select the variants of your choice.
Once all the variants are revealed, I'll be adding a new pledge level featuring ALL variants at a solid discount. So stay tuned!
Again, we're thrilled at the new dimension this has added to the campaign. And we're not done yet...in fact, we're less than $750 away from the BIG $15K unlock!Last updated:
