About

Time Nomad is a 24 page, full color, action adventure story.  Alex and his robot assistant use their time machine to have the best summer vacation EVER.  And save his crush, the only person who knows how to operate the machine and get them all back home!

It's a story for those of us who like our action a little more light-hearted.  Think more Bill and Ted rather than Terminator.  

Have you ever had that initial spark of inspiration?!  At a convention in California I was sitting in my car and a title came to me - Time Nomad.  I couldn't shake it. What would make someone a nomad through time?  Why would someone choose (or be forced) to live that way?  Well, next thing you know I had the title, tagline, and a brief synopsis of the basic story and characters.

After getting started on the book and getting some concept art done, I knew it was a story I needed to tell.  So I'm coming to Kickstarter to make this idea a reality.

Time Nomad #1 - three different covers to choose from, more special reward tiers, and a few surprises for backers we'll roll out during the campaign!

Time Nomad features an all-star international team of independent talent, and features a covers by Renan Shody, Coffin Comics' and Marvel artist Justin Hunt, and a limited edition cover by Northwest legend Tony Dela Cruz.

THE TEAM

 BILL COULOMBE is the writer and creator of Time Nomad.  His previous work includes the independent superhero series, Kinetic.  He currently lives in Seattle, and has exhibited at many comic conventions across the United States.

FABIAN COBOS is a comic artist and illustrator.  He started as a color assistant at Graphikslava studio, and has done pencils and color work for IDW, Dark Horse, Alterna Comics, and others.  He lives in Mexico.

VALERIE ST. GELAIS Valerie St. Gelais is a colorist, cartoonist, and 3D artist who works in video games, independent illustration, and of course comics. You can see her work on her Twitter @QuireInk.  She currently resides in London, Ontario.

LUCAS GATTONI is a seasoned graphic designer and typesetter, bringing over fifteen years of professionalism to the team. He's worked many indie publishers and is lettering two yet-to-be-announced series for Action Lab Comics. He lives in Argentina.

The funds raised here will be used to print and ship the book to you, and to pay my artists all a fair page rate.  Just check out some of these great pages done by Fabian, Valerie, and Lucas, and myself:

THE TIMELINE:

  •  MARCH 2019 - KICKSTARTER IS LIVE
  •  APRIL 8TH - LAST DAY OF KICKSTARTER (And Bill's Birthday!) 
  •  APRIL 22ND - FUNDS RELEASED TO US(Kickstarter takes about 2 weeks)  
  •  APRIL 30TH - ONE WEEK TO ADD BACKER NAMES, FINALIZE FILES
  •  MAY 1ST - SEND FILES TO PRINTER
  •  MAY 2ND - 23RD - PRODUCTION TIME (generally 1-2 weeks, I'm being very conservative) 
  •  MAY 23RD - JUNE 6TH - SHIPPING FROM PRINTER
  •  JUNE 6TH - 13TH - PACKAGING AND SHIPPING TO OUR WONDERFUL BACKERS
  •  JUNE 13TH - 27TH - I'm factoring in an additional 2 weeks time, just in case something comes up. This could include: unexpected file or revisions needed, complete hardware failure (though everything is backed up), or complete tear of the space/time continuum, etc. 
  •  JULY 1ST, 2019 - You have a smile on your face and comic in your hand!

Most of the book is already complete, so there will be a short turnaround time.  Once the funding is secured, we'll finish the last few pages and send it off to the printer!  I've worked with PrintNinja for my last eight books; they do quality work and their turnaround time has been like clockwork.  When they're back from the printer I will send the books, and all additional rewards to you!

The amount raised is going entirely to the production, printing, and shipping of the book and extra backer rewards such as posters, stickers, and a few other surprises.  I am not taking any slice of the pie.  Here's how the finances break down: 

Thank you for checking out Time Nomad; this couldn't happen without you.  

Now for the fun part!  Go check out our great selection of rewards, pick out your favorite, and let's make this book a reality!

Risks and challenges

Having backed several Kickstarter projects myself, I'm aware of how important your pledges are. I am very familiar with comic projects, and have 8 books already published. I've budgeted accordingly to make sure this gets funded, printed, and in your hands in a timely manner.

The book is nearly complete, and just needs a few tweaks and pages finished. I have worked with my current printer, PrintNinja, for my previous series, Kinetic, so I know we'll deliver to you on time and hopefully ahead of schedule.

Since this is my first Kickstarter, to help with my launch, last year I signed up to the Comixlaunch course which has given me valuable insight into making my project successful, not just for me and my creative team, but also for the backers, and Kickstarter community.
