Signed C: the missing, Issue #2

$2,706

105

We hit our goal!

That means we will be able to bring our backers additional rewards of limited, signed and number items as we hit stretch goals.

Stretch goal #1 ($2600) has been reached! Signed and numbered Damn Heroes strips for everyone over the $20 mark!

Next stretch goal at $2800! Expect something "foreboding" and "ominous" if we get there.

Thanks for having a look. You Rock! When you give, you get a lot.

What Signed C: the missing is about: Everyday, young women go missing in the big city but most aren’t models with a talent agent who happens to be the most badass sorceresses of all time. After a young model misses an appointment, her agent C starts an investigation. Discovering the model’s apartment in ruins, C unleashes her supernatural powers and a quest begins. C enters fantastic realms of both god and man on her search until a conspiracy to undo the cosmic balance is revealed. Her past comes back to haunt her and not even the gods are safe. It will take all C has to defeat a nemesis who has outsmarted her at every turn. More than the life of a single human is on the line and an epic battle threatens to bring down the heavens.

You can be first to get, first to give, and be first of a greater vision.

[Attn: Every single backer, even $1, now gets a copy of the novel The Cell. See the bottom of this page

Why did we come to Kickstarter?

1) You are here and you are awesome. This platform allows us to go directly to you.

2) To offer you a chance at getting the comic book before anyone else. People who contribute to Kickstarter are part of that special group who recognize great projects before anyone else.

3) The comic book is ready for the printers and artists deserve to get paid.

4) We want to make you a part of the Wayward Raven Media story. You can make us better.

5) We can offer you exclusive, limited items that otherwise you couldn’t get. Check out the pledge rewards.

6) Now to be blunt. Making comic books is expensive and it’s only easy for multi-million dollar companies to get financing. But we don’t want a loan. We have products that we want you to receive without a middle-man.

[FYI, THERE'S MORE COMIC BOOK ART IN THE UPDATES]

"Ars longa, vitae brevis." We are Wayward Raven Media, an independent comic book company, seeking your generosity to assist in producing the second issue of our series C: the missing. It falls under the umbrella of our Signed comic book line much like how Fables is a designation of an overall fictive world.

Something you should know about us. We’re fans. We’re geeks. We’re underdogs… And we don’t give up.

[MORE ART FROM THE COMIC IS IN THE UPDATES. PLEASE LOOK]

Over the last two years, Wayward Raven has faced some obstacles and growing pains, but we’ve have learned from these challenges and allowed us to bring you even better products. Part of our expansion included going to more comic book conventions while heading back to the ones where we were quite successful like NYCC and the Boston Comic Con. More and more people are recognizing our work and coming back to get subsequent issues of our comics at these cons and nothing could make us happier.

The bird brains behind the operation are: 

Mark C. Frankel @PantherPitt

Mark is the CEO/COO and has worked in Entertainment Media for over ten years. He's the writer/creator on many of our titles, including Signed

Joshua Lee Andrew Jones @JLAJones

Josh is the Editor-in-Chief of Wayward Raven and is published novelist as well as the co-creator of Signed and other Wayward Raven titles.

Alexander Sapountzis @asapountzis

Alex is the Creative Director and CTO of Wayward Raven. He is the co-creator and artist of Damn Heroes and maintains all things technical for Wayward Raven.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Since we hit the half-way point to our goal, we've decided to add another incentive. If we reach our pledge goal, everyone who backs this project gets a copy of The Cell. It's a paranormal novel about a young comic book artist who loses his way until a call comes from beyond the grave and he goes on a journey so that more than just his soul is saved. It will be provided as an ebook to every backer, even $1. 

Don’t forget to check back and tell your friends. We will have stretch goals once certain levels of funding are reached.

Risks and challenges

During our first two years of being in business we have learned much. We've perfected the logistics of our business from working with our artists to production and distribution. Our process is now streamlined.

Our next challenge is to expand our brand. In order for that to happen, we need the support of our current fans as well as the assistance of new ones. A successful Kickstarter will set us on the path to growth, a challenge that we accept wholeheartedly.
