Well, I have gone from self-publishing issues one and two  to having an independant publishing company offer to publish my title for me.  However, I have had some setbacks.  My ultimate goal is to NOT just get funds to help continue my work with ODM, but also gain exposure.  Right after moving my laptop crashed and luckily the second hard drive on it was still good.  So my mother found another computer from her work that I am able to use.  It still needs upgrading, but at least it allows me to continue my work.  Then I found out that my scanner/printer will not scan unless it has ink!  Funny how that works.

So if I have found an independant publisher, why do I need the support?  Well, I'll tell ya... self-publishing two issues has shown me a lot of things.  First and foremost, you don't really make a PROFIT doing so.  Things like ink for printers, pencils and pens, paper to draw on, costs to print and distribute, business cards, mini-posters, ad-space/marketing, going to conventions to get the word out and pass around my comic (issue one was paid for completely out-of-pocket), all these things cost and are needed to become a successful comic artist.  An independant publisher is much like a self-publisher except they deal with more than one person's titles.

And I have a limited income which goes to "important" things like food, rent, utility bills, and daily life-stuff.  So, I figured I would try this and see who else might like to help!
Tiers
Pledge $10 or more per month
Ok, in all seriousness, if I get people pledging 10 a month, I can help see to it they get a copy of the comic when it comes out.  I'll be honest though, this will NOT be a monthly title.  So just try to be patient and understand that I am ordering from an independant publisher my own title to then ship to you.  So, regarding how long it takes to publish after I get it done is kind of out of my hands at that point.  But I will have your address and I can help make it happen!
Goals
$0 of $1 per month
If you want any digital art that I have already done, hit me up and I will send you a file.  Your pick.  I am always doing different pages, or even different types of art.  So if you see something on the facebook page you like, I'll send a digital copy of the file to you.
