  A fantastic ultraviolent space opera for mature audiences only. Set in a universe ravaged by a 3,000 year war, our heroes set forth on a mission unlike any other as they discover the conspiracy around their planned annihilation! Ruthless Pirates, Bounty Hunters and cloned Kittybots! Heroic Bunnies and Kittens in skimpy space suits! Inspired by a healthy mix of mainstream sci-fi and video games, SPACE CRISIS is a series with humor, horror and sex appeal.

  I am creating a 200+ page graphic novel which I would like to eventually self publish. With your help, not only will this great story finally get out there, but you will be the only crowd on the planet to get exclusive access to pages of the book long before going to print... day to day as it's being created! I will keep a weekly blog with new storyboards, rough/cleaned pencil art, final inked art and (if the COLOR goal is meet) the gorgeous final pages in full color. Other rewards include one of a kind storyboard artwork (signed by the creator) and even the actual hand drawn and inked final pages from the book itself, almost guaranteed to become valuable if SPACE CRISIS ever hits the mainstream.

  The completed script is 92 pages long and I am currently in the process of completely revising it as well as adding content where I feel it necessary. That being said, a graphic novel for a script this size is going to take at least 200 pages to complete. Instead of publishing it as a comic book series, I would rather get the entire story (thus far) into one big book.

Goals
$0 of $200 per month
This first goal would allow me to cover costs for all materials needed per month to create the graphic novel. Besides purchasing a few hundred oversized comic book art boards, I also need (who knows how many) pencils and pens required to produce the 200+ page graphic novel. I use professional pencils and pens (no Bic ballpoints here), so this expense actually adds up fast.
