Voluntaryist Origins II – Sneak Peek 4

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

Thank you again for your patience as I know we are behind our original estimated delivery date. Rest assured, I am just as excited as you are to finish the comic and get it into your (and my) hands! The colors and letters are still being worked on and I am ensuring that utmost quality control is being exercised based on the great feedback I received on Origins I. I do not want to give you anything that you would not feel good showing off on a display case or to your friends! As always, I seek to continue pushing forward the quality on the comic production, and hope to continue that tradition with Origins II.

On that note, I have another sneak peek for you, this time, a sneak peek of artwork for the card game prototype! This comic campaign has many goodies coming along with it, so there will be quite a few things to unpack when you receive your perks!

Update On Production and Action Figure Sneak Peek

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I just wanted to take a moment to update you on the production process. I just got word that inked pages have started to get colors and lettering worked on, so the artwork is underway toward completion.

I also have a special teaser announcement: an action figure line is being developed for mass scale, so there will be an opportunity to get a posable Voluntaryist figure with unmatched quality – coming soon!

Voluntaryist Origins II – Sneak Peek 3

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

I am excited to share with you sneak peek No. 3 for Voluntaryist Origins II!

Everything is looking good so far with quality control on the comic production.

However, we do have a comic production push-back due to our primary artist getting sick for several weeks, so our estimated delivery date is going to likely be after October as we are still working on page completion.

There is nothing to worry about though! Our publishing group, Short Fuse Media Group, LLC, has a strong reputation they stand by: “WE ALWAYS DELIVER!” We are confident in their ability to deliver the final art as they have in the past and, as always, we will be sure that all perks are delivered directly to you.

I am also preparing the final touches on the costume for Voluncap so that The Pholosopher can do her cosplay shoot. She’s especially excited as it also going to be her Halloween costume this year.

Please stay tuned here and at http://www.volcomic.com as I will continue to post teasers and updates as the colors and letters come through so you can see the production progress.

Looking forward to getting this issue into your hands as soon as possible!

Voluntaryist Origins II Success! Next Steps On Production!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

We did it!

I am ecstatic to announce that Voluntaryist Origins II closed at a record-breaking $5,544 supported by 119 backers, making this issue the highest funded, most received, longest, and most successful Voluntaryist comic to date! Thank you for your generous time and support in not only backing the campaign, but also being a true fan by continually sharing the campaign promo images and links to new faces online!

finished campaign voluntaryist origins II

Now that the campaign is closed, the chain of production is beginning, and I will keep you in the loop with updates and teasers along the way.

Once Indiegogo releases the funds to me within 1-2 weeks, I will be working with our publishing group, Short Fuse Media, to format the layout for production. The comic will then go into a pencils review process over the course of 1-2 months, with inks, colors, and lettering to follow over the next 1-2 months.

Those who ordered physical, non-comic perks will receive those first. If you ordered a physical comic perk, you will receive whatever you ordered as a bundle once the comic production is complete. Check the completion date estimations on the Indiegogo campaign page for your respective order: https://bit.ly/2Iz5YpY

I will be sending out an e-mail message directly to give all backers their BONUS ITEMS, which includes ALL PAST DIGITAL VOLUNTARYIST ISSUES, The Liberty Force digital comic by Johnny Adams, and a digital copy of Heroes Ignited by Short Fuse Media Group. Please be on the lookout for that e-mail from mr.voluntary[at]gmail.com.

Make sure to check and ensure that your e-mail and shipping address are correct. If anything changes over time, you are able to update that information on Indiegogo by signing in to your order. I will send a campaign reminder 1 week before shipment to ensure that anyone who has moved can update their address before I send out physical comic perks.

If for any reason you made a mistake and forgot to select a perk, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I care about all supporters and want to make sure that no one made a mistake by not selecting a perk. So please double-check and make sure you selected a perk for your respective pledge, and send me a message if you didn’t select your perk by accident so I can update your order.

I’m looking forward to making this the best Voluntaryist issue ever, and I know I can because of you! So thank you for believing in me and the series and helping to bring Voluntaryist – The Comic Series, to life!

Voluntaryist Origins Perks Shipped – Special Note

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

I wanted to let you know that most all Voluntaryist perk orders have been shipped. You should see your perk in the mail come this week or next if in the U.S. If outside the U.S., within the month.

If you would, share a photo of your comic arrival with us on our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/volcomics/

It feels good to know that you got your perks and I love showing off the comic treasure!
In the process of working through the orders, I noticed that there were a couple of you who only did a donation, i.e., did not select a perk.

If you:

1.) Contributed toward the campaign with a printed comic perk amount.
2.) Made an error and did not select a perk. (Donation only.)

3.) And would like to get the comic perk you could have selected, then:

Please message me at mr.voluntary[at]gmail.com using the e-mail you made your contribution with for the campaign. I will fulfill the comic perk you would have received if you accidentally selected “donation” instead of “perk.” E-mail me with your campaign order name and mailing address by November 10th to be counted. I cannot process anything beyond this Friday, November 10th.

AGAIN – Thank you so much everyone for helping to make this issue the best yet!

I am proud to say that Voluntaryist Origins is the canon origins story I had hoped to start with from the beginning. While the past issues were a lot of fun and were important to flesh out the future of the series, I needed the groundwork laid, and this issue is IT!

From here on out, I will be working to continue the chronology, so please stay tuned on the Facebook page and on the website: http://volcomic.com, to find out when the next comic campaign launches to continue the story for part 2.

I cannot wait to share what Voluntaryist adventure unfolds next!

Voluntaryist Origins – Early Digital Release Sent Out

Hello from J at Voluntaryist – The Comic Series!

I am excited to announce the Indiegogo supporter early digital release of Voluntaryist Origins! I know we’re a little behind schedule, but I think it was worth the wait as I added on an extra page to production, making this a full-length comic book with 24 interior comic art pages.

THE EARLY RELEASE SUPPORTER DOWNLOAD LINK HAS BEEN SENT TO DIRECTLY TO YOUR E-MAIL IF YOU WERE A SUPPORTER.

This is the first time the Voluntaryist story is being presented from the beginning of the canon, with the chronology to follow from here on out in future issues.

The physical perks are being ordered now and the digital files are being sent off to the printer. The printer will then be shipping the comic books to me and then I will be shipping out the physical comics to those who ordered them.

Those who wish to pick up a physical copy outside of the campaign will be able to do so at Indyplanet.com. I will share the link on the Indiegogo.com campaign when available.

If you have any thoughts, questions, or last-minute changes of address, please make sure to contact me at mr.voluntary{at}gmail.com or by submitting the change of address form through Indiegogo directly on the comic campaign.

Thank you so much for helping to bring the Voluntaryist comic to life! I couldn’t have made it this far without your years of support which have allowed me to flesh out the details of the comic story and characters and refine production so that each issue is even better than the last.

Looking forward to bringing the message of liberty to the comic world with you!

Sincerely,

Voluntaryist Origins Campaign Complete

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

I am excited to announce that we have completed our Voluntaryist Origins Indiegogo comic campaign!

While we did not reach our lofty backing goal, we did reach AMAZING heights with this campaign that make Voluntaryist Origins the MOST SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGN EVER.

In this campaign, we:

  • Hit the No. 1 spot on Indiegogo comics!
  • Reached over 5,200 fans on our Facebook!
  • Reached 97 backers – BEATING ALL PREVIOUS RECORDS!
  • Raised over $3,600 – OUR HIGHEST-FUNDED CAMPAIGN OF ALL TIME!

Because of this, I can tell you that not only will this comic be the longest in our production history, but it will be the first full industry-standard comic book we have completed in one shot.

The Voluntaryist Origins story will be released as a “Part 1” with Part 2 to be worked on soon.

Thank you so much again for your generous time in sharing the campaign and contributing support! You’re the reason why the next evolution in culture and liberty is taking place. I promise to you as I have with each campaigns’ backers to make this issue the best one yet. I will be giving the production process my utmost attention and taking the feedback I have received over the years to ensure that every aspect of this comic is artful and articulate.

COMIC PRODUCTION DETAILS AND TIMELINE

The comic production process will begin after the funding is released from Indiegogo in about two weeks. I will be working with our production team to set the storyboarding for the primary penciling artist. The drawing and revision process will take 6-8 weeks with a coloring and lettering process of another 6-8 weeks afterward.

As per the campaign timeline, I will begin fulfilling those who ordered solely non-comic perks first in the coming weeks.

Those who ordered print comics alone or with other items will receive their comic bundle once the production process is complete.

As we work on the process, I will be posting teasers on our website, http://volcomic.com and on our Facebook page, http://facebook.com/volcomics

Please check back at those sites if you want to get some sneak peeks over the next few months.

If you will be moving in the coming months, please make sure to send us an updated address to mr.voluntary[at]gmail.com We will send a reminder e-mail before we ship major comic perks as well.

I’m still stunned at how well this campaign performed. I think 2017 might just be the beginnings of some greater strides toward more Voluntaryist virtues!

Hello friends!

Those who ordered solely non-printed comic perks had their goodies shipped out over a week ago. Hopefully they all have arrived safe. If not, please let me know at mr.voluntary[at]gmail.com. Those who ordered a printed comic perk along with anything else will get everything they ordered all at once once production is complete.

The production of the comic is underway as scheduled. As such, I have the first sneak peek teaser for you to share. Enjoy this clip from our upcoming release Shielding Assange: The Voluntaryists vs. the NSA 2!

SUCCESS! Shielding Assange: The Voluntaryists vs. the NSA 2

shielding assange successHello friends!

WOW! That’s what I have to say to what has become the second-highest supported Voluntaryist comic of all time! Shielding Assange: The Voluntaryists versus the NSA 2 is now set to become the longest issue to date, beating the record 14 pages from last issue. We managed to raise $2,833- an INCREDIBLE FEAT! I’m the most excited for this issue out of any because the page space will allow for major developments on all fronts: character, narrative, action, and liberty!

The funds will be disbursed to me in the next 2 weeks. Afterward, I will be working to make sure the story is set just right to the budget raised. The script will then go to our primary artist for review. He will then work with me on the storyboarding and hash out the inked pages. After inking, the pages go to the colorists and letterers and then back to me for final approval. If all goes as planned, we should be getting out the digital comic just into the fall months and the physical comic just before winter, if not sooner.

Those who ordered non-comic perks will begin to see those sent out within the next month in June.

If you ordered the latest issue bundled with a perk, you will receive your comic and your perks together. Check the estimated delivery date on the Indiegogo.com campaign to see when it will be complete as well as our updates here.

If you will be moving in the coming months, please make sure to update your address for any perks. I will be posting updates through Indiegogo.com to remind you, but can always let us know via e-mail at mr.voluntary[at}gmail.com

If you have any questions or comments, please always feel free to reach out on the Website at http://volcomic.com on the Facebook page at http://facebook.com/volcomics or again directly via e-mail at mr.voluntary{at}gmail.com.

While working on this issue, I will be also preparing plans to make the full origins graphic novel. The origins story of Voluntaryist has been about 4 years in the making, but I never built a campaign around it because I felt that the fandom wasn’t large enough to rally support. After seeing Captain America: Civil War’s success and the 3,000+ fans now on the Voluntaryist facebook page, I think the time has finally come to create the foundation masterpiece.

Thank you again for believing in this comic series. It’s great to finally have something of substance in the entertainment world that truly embraces free markets, free minds, and voluntary living.

With humble appreciation and love,
