Robbie MacK and the creative crew at Vigilante Comix are back on Kickstarter raising funds to print the sixth and final issue of the Deborah Daring Detective series, as well as the complete graphic novel.
NEWS FLASH! THE GRAPHIC NOVEL NOW COMES IN HARD COVER!
Issue 6 will be a 20 page, full-color comic of standard dimensions available digitally and in print. The graphic novel will also be available digitally and as a perfect-bound 132 page trade paperback. All back issues will be available in the Add-Ons section of this campaign, as well as a wide variety of awesome rewards, such as pinups, posters, trading cards, stickers, t-shirts and custom art! We have some great stretch goals planned too!
The Deborah Daring series has been Robbie MacK’s passion project for the last four years and he is absolutely thrilled to see it come to fruition! As the writer and editor for the series, Rob enlisted some top-indie talent from around the world to bring this epic tale to life. The main character was inspired by his wife and the story is a modern take on the private detective genre with a uniquely Canadian spin. If you like sexy, tough, yet vulnerable female characters in a suspenseful story packed with action, then this is the comic series for you! By backing this campaign, not only will you get a great comic/graphic novel, you’ll also be helping Robbie MacK fulfill his life-long dream of publishing a full-blown comic book series.
Deborah Daring is the story about a perky paralegal with a military background and a taste for trouble. Deb started moonlighting as a private investigator, because she was getting bored to death with her work at the office. Her investigations hadn’t been very exciting until recently, when she took on a strange case from a mystery client. Now she's got all the intrigue and excitement she can handle! Fortunately, she's got the assistance of police officer, Jacques Brousseau, who was her army buddy in Afghanistan. Soon the two of them find themselves embroiled in a case involving the Russian Mafia and corruption too close to home. If that wasn't enough to worry about, Deb keeps having nightmares about her service time in Afghanistan and they're starting to take a toll on her relationship with her boyfriend, Ray. Can Deb solve the case for her client, not get killed by a Russian assassin and keep her relationship together? Join Deb as she battles the bad guys, unravels her first big mystery and gradually becomes a true DETECTIVE!

Here's a sneak peek at a double-page spread fight scene from issue 6, where Deb fights her nemesis, Danuta!
The creative crew at Vigilante Comix has come together like never before to produce the best quality books and rewards for you, our valued backers!
Please note that individual back issues can also be purchased at our eStore in both digital and print format.
Note: The fabulous pinups and trading cards were illustrated and colored by Vigilante Comix newcomers, Hakan Ayadin and Sean Callahan. The amazing landscape poster was created by Italian artistic sensation, Leo Colapietro.
To make this campaign successful, we need to raise $3,000 CAD. The artwork is already complete for issue six, so the entire series is essentially complete. However, we need the funds this campaign will provide to print the sixth issue and the graphic novel. The funds we raise will also go towards the production costs of the other fabulous rewards we’re offering.
Stretch goals will be added as our funding increases.

Risks and challenges
All the artwork for the entire series is complete so there is essentially no risk that the books for this campaign will not be completed on time. Furthermore, we are using the same trusted Canadian printer (Copywell) that we’ve used for our last 3 campaigns, so there is minimal risk that we won’t be able to ship a quality product to our backers in a timely fashion. Lastly, all our books are packaged in standard comic bags and all reward packages are shipped in sturdy cardboard envelopes and boxes, so there is minimal risk that your rewards will be damaged in transit.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
