We're on to stretch goals!!
Set about 15 years after the world fell apart, a nomadic physician struggles to survive in a savage frontier of the poor and powerless, trying to balance her calling as a healer with the necessity of killing for survival. As a consequence, maybe she’s become more skilled with her saber than she is with a scalpel, and she’s trying to get out from under that reputation.
In Chapter 1, Turtle Island, we follow Doc Hanover as she answers a call for medical help that takes her farther west than she’s been -- away from the violence and anarchy she knew back east and away from her past. At the feet of South Dakota’s Black Hills, she finds a surprisingly prosperous and peaceful fort, where destiny has plans for her.
Created and written by John Pence, The Surgeon has now been brought to life by the Unlikely Heroes Studios team! Zack Dolan, Laurie Foster, Eve Orozco, and Erek Foster are bringing you this .45 caliber adventure of guns, swords, fists, scalpels, laughs, and maybe a few secret tough-guy tears.
The initial goal of this Kickstarter is to raise funds to print The Surgeon Chapter 1 and get it into your hands, as well as produce a small pile of really cool bonus merchandise for you, the fans! We are ultimately aiming, however, to raise more money, hit our first stretch goal (12.5k), and begin production on Chapter 2 of this planned 5-issue series. The stretch goals will only get better as we go, so stay tuned during the campaign for surprises and bonus gifts!

For Stretch Goal Fulfillment, backers would receive each issue individually once it is completed and printed.
I.e.: Upon completion of this Kickstarter, backers will receive Issue 1 as soon as it is printed (it is already complete), along with all other non-stretch goal rewards.
Subsequent issues will be printed and shipped separately upon completion. Backers would receive issue updates in the Kickstarter feed. Goal amounts include printing, shipping, and aid in the production of the new issues.
Risks and challenges
This project comes with little to no risks or challenges. We have had three successful past Kickstarters and are extremely familiar with delivering rewards that people love on time!
Our initial goal consists simply of enough money to print The Surgeon Issue 1, along with a little extra to produce and ship the rewards for the other tiers!
Our stretch goals consist of further issue production and printing.
Simple and efficient! We want to get books into your hands!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
