The long awaited day has arrived! Thanks to everyone who contributed! You can now collect your Digital Rewards, which includes Torch: RTS Digitals, Wallpapers, Audio Commentary and a bonus book "The Ignis Quadrant." I'm so excited to share all of this with you!

To receive your reward, look for an email from BackerKit to collect your files. If you don't see your email check your Sp@m folder. 

If you still don't see it, your card for physical shipping may have been declined (5 people), please resolve asap. 

Still having trouble? Reach out to me via message and I will hook you up! 

Please share your thoughts with me and others! Creators can be in a vacuum at times so feedback is welcome! It's been a long road, and I'm dying to hear what you think!

As for print copies, I'm talking with the printers now and files will be sent to them next week!

DEADLINE - Surveys Will Lock Sunday
about 1 month ago – Thu, Aug 25, 2022 at 05:44:16 AM

Hi Everyone!

So 90% of the Surveys have been filled out.  Thank you to those who were prompt in filling theirs out, this enables everyone to get their books sooner!

In order to be fair to those who've patiently waited for their books -- I'm instituting a deadline. Surveys and Orders will be LOCKED Sunday, August 28th at 11:59 pm EST. 

This means after this date, if you haven't filled yours out you will not be included in the Thank You page. Nor will you be able to purchase special add-ons.  The train is leaving the station!

I don't want people to miss out, so please reach out if you have any issues finding your BackerKit survey. 

Book Updates

I'm happy to report that RedVeril has started on Book 3 Art Layouts! Meanwhile, I'm working away on the rest of the script, fine tuning dialogue and whatnot. I've also finished recording my audio commentary for issue 2 and begun purchasing the Stretch Goals. 

Thanks again!

Hiya gang,

So it's been a few weeks and I'm here to reports that 80% of the surveys have been filled out. If you haven't filled your survey out yet...PLEASE DO SO. The sooner you do, the sooner I can get everyone's rewards sent out. 

You might think that you're response is no biggie...but it IS. Backers at every tier has their name added to the Thank You page. So please get that done asap. 

Reminder that surveys are coming via a third party called BACKERKIT, be sure to check your email and spam folder for an email from BackerKit. 

Thanks everyone!

That's right! It's GO TIME. The BackerKit surveys have been sent to your email address. 

Please do them ASAP. The sooner everyone finishes their survey, the sooner I can send the Digital Copies of issue #2 and contact the printers. 

CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDERS. BackerKit is a separate entity from Kickstarter so your email inbox might throw a fit. Also if you have any questions, feel free to reach out via KS Messenger or comment here!

That's it! I will check in with everyone in about a week with an update to survey counts.

Overmind: A Science Fiction Thriller Graphic Novel

A cool sci-fi graphic novel featuring a badass redhead. The covers and art pay homage to the great scifi art of the 1940s and 50s. 

Ayla Rin, Agent of Terra Prime has uncovered a plot against the Imperium! On a faraway colony planet, the governor is linking his populace into an ethernet where they are being mind-controlled by a rogue artificial intelligence that seeks galactic domination! Only Alya Rin can stop this nefarious plot and save humanity as we know it. Fans of Valerian, The Incal, and Saga will love OVERMIND!

Shieldbreaker Pt. 2

I don't see a lot of Viking indies out there which makes this campaign cool . Plus it looks like Mickey Scott carefully researched Norse mythology for this story. 

Tyra Karlsdottir's journey as she takes part in her first battles and raids, aided by the mysterious spirit trapped in her sword, will lead you down that path. Follow Tyra as she discovers what it really means to go a-viking and is forced to choose her own path in this 33-page chapter in the Shieldbreaker Saga.
