Unit 44 Kickstarter Successful

Did you hear the good news?

After two months of Kickstartering, the first issue of UNIT 44 will soon come to life with the help of artist extraordinaire, Eduardo Jimenez!

We set out to raise $2,000 to complete the first issue and due to the generosity of 100+ backers, we raised over $2,700 to get the series started.

I can’t thank Ed enough for his patience throughout the process and willingness to help in creating numerous graphics, images and promo material along with actively helping to promote the campaign. It’s nice to have the fundraising out of the way so that we can get to what we joined forces for — to bring Unit 44 to life!

If you’d like to see how our campaign shook out, feel free to visit the Kickstarter page by clicking here. If you’d like to pick up a copy of our first issue, you’ll have a bit of a wait, but click over to unit44comic.com and sign up for the mailing list to get all the latest and greatest on the process.

If you helped support, THANK YOU!

We-did-it!

 

 

Unit 44 Kickstarter Redux

It’s no secret that the first Kickstarter campaign for UNIT 44 didn’t reach the desired goal of $9,000, but admittedly, artist Eduardo Jiménez and I got a little bit ambitious.

Rather than let (what we think to be) a great book and idea die on the vine, we decided to relaunch the campaign in an attempt to fund just the first issue of the book rather than the entire 4-issue graphic novel.

This time we’re seeking $2,000 that will cover the art and printing costs of Issue #1. From there, we can gather some reviews of the book, sell it at conventions and stores and begin building our brand and audience in order to fund the remaining three issues of the series.
