Voluntaryist Origins VI Sneak Peek Update 5

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

It’s 2023! Happy New Year!

And what’s great about kicking off this new year is that I have received the print copies of Voluntaryist Origins VI!

Boy, do they look BEAUTIFUL!

Many of you have even already received your print copy if your perk was at the game card tier or lower.

Print comic perks at the game card level and below were mailed out on December 19th. If you have not received your print comic yet, please message me at mr.voluntary(at)gmail.com and I will see if your order was lost in the mail and replace it if so. (If you’re an international backer, it may still take another week or 2 with all the holiday busyness.)

As for the rest of the perks at the Art Tier print level and higher, those are still pending as we’re working through the Origins I and II remasters, the I-V cover remasters, and the final art print.

We are doing great schedule-wise as the promised delivery date is December, 2023. (That’s right – in case you forgot – getting the digital copy of Origins VI and the early print shipments are 1 FULL year ahead of promised delivery date. I hope you’re as impressed as I am!)

We are moving as fast as we can to deliver the rest of the perks well-ahead of the promised date, especially so, because we want to be able to launch the next Voluntaryist Arc campaign, SUIT SAGA, in 2023. And we won’t do that until ALL perks on this Origins VI campaign have been shipped.

To give you a sense of where we’re at, at the time of this writing we’ve:

  • Completed and have in our hands the Origins VI print comics.
  • Completed and have in our hands all perk accessories except the $75 tier art print.
  • Shipped out all perks at the Game Card tier and below.
  • Penciled 39 pages of the Origins I remaster.
  • Colored 32 pages of the Origins I remaster.
  • Lettered 32 pages of the Origins I remaster. (that’s me)
  • Got the Origins III, IV, and V comic remasters in production.


PRETTY impressive considering that we normally only have a single comic issue each year of about 24 pages. By summer 2023, we will have completed in 1 year what amounts to 4 comic book creations in total page counts. A record feat!

Stay tuned for when we do our next batch of perk fulfillments as we increment toward total project completion.

And speaking of completion, we would not have been able to achieve as much as we did if not for our ROCKSTAR executive advertisement sponsor, Victoria King.

Victoria has been an early believer in Voluntaryist and our other projects, and wanted to see the Origins Remaster and trade paperback come to fruition – so she went the extra mile on this campaign.

She wants you to check out her book Dear Younger Me, Victim To Victor: A Memoir, as it’s her life’s memoir about overcoming an abusive relationship. She wrote it to help inspire others and bring them healing.

If you’re looking for something unique to help challenge your thinking on relationships, pick up a copy of her book here: 

https://amzn.to/3Ihp9Dk

(affiliate)

in special thanks to her for helping this campaign reach goal in record time!

Thank you Victoria, and everyone else here, for your generous support and social media shoutouts! It makes me feel good to see you get your perks in the mail.

And on that note of feeling good–

My and The Pholosopher’s ANTISTATE music video is now live!

Voluntaryist Origins VI Sneak Peek Update 4

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

Hope you are doing well as we kick off November!

We are working diligently on the Voluntaryist remasters and bonus art with everything going according to plan so far.

To show you a more in-depth look at what we’re doing with the remaster, I made a little video covering what we’re changing as we update Origins I and II to have the same art style as the rest of the series.

You can watch that sneak peek at:

https://youtu.be/mMBSsaoFAto

I think you’ll be impressed at how much better the sequential pages look with the new inks, colors, and lettering!

(A sneak peek of one of the Voluntaryist team art print layouts.)

And, speaking of improving, if you want to improve your portfolio diversification, I highly recommend checking out one of our Voluntaryist Origins VI sponsors, Taggart Trading!**

Taggart Trading deals in bullion, rare coins, and precious metals, which are especially important to consider holding on to in these inflationary times!

Taggart Trading’s owner Marc Tancer is not only a friend, but I can personally recommend his services as I have used them time and again over the years.

What’s unique about Marc is that he’s not just some large corporate chain where you’re dealing with a series of intermediaries. Marc is both the expert and the executive and offers you personalized service whether you’re looking to just break into precious metals for the first time or want to order large quantities.

Check out his Website over at: http://southfloridabullion.com/

and be sure to give him a call when you’re ready to set yourself up for success in 2023.

It’s a great time to investigate the benefits of precious metals in your portfolio!

Looking forward to updating you next month on the Voluntaryist comic progress.

Voluntaryist Origins VI Sneak Peek Update 3 + ANTISTATE

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

Hope you are doing well this October.

I have all good news to share as we have fully completed the colors and lettering for the Origins VI standalone issue and all final advertisement placements have come in.

That said, we are still diligently working on the rest of the project goals, from remastering Origins I and II to the additional art pieces that come with perk packages.

On that note of additional art pieces, one of the artists for those pieces is Aimée McLernon.

Aimée McLernon is an incredibly talented, multi-media artist and graphic designer whose professionalism and unique style places her as one of my favorite artists of all time.

She also happens to be one of the ad sponsors of this issue and, with that, is offering her creative talents for your illustration needs, from comic art to graphic design, to even 2D animation!

So, if you’re looking for someone to help you create a logo, put together a beautiful flier, or conceptualize a character for your own comic project, give her services a look.

She comes personally recommended as I can attest to her skills and professionalism from my own work with her on Voluntaryist.

Check out her business Website at:

https://aimeemclernon.com/

And see for yourself her beautiful portfolio. Plus, she also has her own comic book series you can scope out called Reality Hackers – a psychological thriller of the cyberpunk genre.

Looking forward to updating you next month on the latest Voluntaryist Origins progress!

Voluntaryist Origins VI Sneak Peek Update 2 + ANTISTATE

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I am excited to share with you nothing but GOOD NEWS as we’re moving along expediently with the Origins VI TPB campaign production.

We have completed all inks on Origins VI and are onto the coloring stage.

We have also started working on the Origins I remaster pencils and have been improving those layouts so that there is plenty of breathing room for the speech bubbles – something I have wanted to improve for a long time. SO, THANK YOU for giving me this opportunity to make the series perfected and uniform!

I have a couple of sneaks peeks to share with you from our production including a colored Lumbertarian sketch from the character turn, an inked panel, an Origins I remastered pencils page, and a draft layout from the Archist game card!

Archist Game Card Sneak Peek
Origins I Remastered Pencils Sneak Peek

To the advertisers – thank you so much for most all of you getting to me your advertisement placements.

If you have an outstanding advertisement, be sure get back to me a.s.a.p. with your proof or reach out to me if you’re struggling to get something put together. I can assist with basic graphics if needed – BUT – I do need to get those proofs in as soon as possible so I can review it to make sure your ad will fit for form and appropriateness and, if needed, work with you to adjust. I sent out reminder messages, so check your inbox if you did not already confirm your final ad spot with me.

The e-mail I sent that from is mr.voluntary(at)gmail.com If your ad is not sent for proofing and confirmed with me by the end of this month, I will sadly have to cancel your advertisement perk and refund you entirely. I don’t want to have to do that, but I do have to set a hard deadline to make sure I can print the comics according to schedule.

And on that note of advertisers, I would like to thank Punk Rock Libertarians Podcast for their support on this Origins VI comic! The guys there have a great show and I have even been a guest on it myself.

Punk Rock Libertarians

Speaking of people who like ROCK MUSIC…

Pho and I have just launched our music video campaign for our song, ANTISTATE!

ANTISTATE MUSIC VIDEO INDIEGOGO

CAMPAIGN LINK: https://igg.me/at/antistate

It’s a song getting people to think outside the state with an alternative rock meets electronica sound.

This is a special opportunity because a director we’ve known for years is giving us a hook-up to shoot this video in New York City so we can use the environment to craft an artistic, dystopian feel to match the sound of the song.

In support of this project, we’re offering some unique perks where you can be listed as an executive producer or have your name/business mentioned in the credits.

It’s a cool way to take part in the project and get yourself some PRIME-TIME LIMELIGHT!

So, if you would please, head on over to the ANTISTATE campaign page and check out what ways you can get involved.

And as always, even if you don’t have change to spare right now, a campaign share to your social media is GREATLY appreciated to get the word out. The more eyes we can get on the project, the more of a chance we have to reach goal and get some publicity for our liberty message!

AND, if we DO hit goal, we are planning to host a meetup in NYC for ANTISTATE campaign supporters, likely, at a PHO restaurant. It’s a fun way to connect with everyone over food while sharing our love for liberty and creative production.

Thank you so much for your continued support, everyone!

Looking forward to sharing the next progress update with you on Voluntaryist Origins VI in October!

Voluntaryist Origins VI Comic Sneak Peek Update 1

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

Hope you are having a great start to your week with August kicking off!

I wanted to update you on the progress of the comic and let you know that everything is going smoothly!

We’ve already finished the pencils on Origins VI, in part, because I had been working on them even before the campaign started and, in other part, because our primary penciller has prioritized working on Voluntaryist, helping us get more pages completed sooner than expected.

The pencils for Origins VI are already off to the inker/colorist and are being worked on right now with an expected completion by or before the end of September.

Once those inks and colors wrap, they will then come back to me so I can lay down the lettering.

To celebrate this milestone, I am sharing with you a sneak peek from the Origins VI pencils and one from the art prints!

Voluntaryist Origins VI Pencils Sneak Peek 1
Lumbertarian Character Sheet Sneak Peek 1

Pretty cool, huh?

A quick reminder to our advertisement sponsors – please be sure to submit your ads for review by or before Wednesday, August 24th, so we can have a chance to check over them and make sure they’re good-to-go for both specs and fit.

You can send that proof to mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com.

And on that note of our ad sponsors, I will be thanking each sponsor as we go through our updates!

Up first, I would like to thank Kirk of CJRoasting.com for his generous support on both this campaign and on our I DID NOT CONSENT music video. Kirk owns a coffee bean company at https://cjroasting.com/ selling organic and fair-trade coffee.

Custom Joe Roasting

So if you’re looking to try something new while supporting those who care about individual liberty, give CJ Roasting a try!

He has a variety of blends, from light roast to dark roast.

And thank you everyone here for helping us continue to succeed.

We’ve seen a bump in Voluntaryist comic interest on the heels of Eric July’s RIPPAVERSE comic universe launch, so these are some exciting times for the alternative comic book world!

Looking forward to updating you soon on our next developments.

Rippaverse Fan Art Submission Isom with Voluntaryist

In celebration of Eric July’s success, I have made this fan art of Isom from the Rippaverse with Voluntaryist of AnCap Comix. It’s incredible to see how far Eric has come with his work and how much he is paving the way for an exit from the SJW statist paradigm for both comic fans and comic creators.

Isom greets Voluntaryist

I am looking forward to seeing more fan art submissions for the Rippaverse campaign 400K stretch goal.

Be sure to support the Rippaverse Isom No. 1 campaign before close at https://rippaverse.com There are tons of great ways to get involved with the campaign, from comics, to posters, to hats and shirts.

Voluntaryist VI Second Stretch Goal NOW UNLOCKED!

Hello, Voluntarist fans!

I am happy to announce that the second stretch goal is officially UNLOCKED!

WOOOOOO!

Everyone at the print comic book tier and higher will now be receiving a new game card prototype in addition to the bonus character sheet from passing stretch goal No. 1 along with the bonus sticker for reaching goal.

So again, if you are currently supporting at a tier lower than the print comic, you’re definitely going to want to upgrade now to reap the bonus perks as you’ll be getting not one, not two, BUT THREE bonus items!

And, on top of that, we’re going to be making variant covers for Origins IV and V for a mainstream appeal.

As we still have about a week to go, there’s plenty of time to unlock stretch goal number 3 to add another bonus item to your perk packages.

Getting there is as simple as everyone sharing the comic campaign here:

https://igg.me/at/origins6


to their social media and letting others know what we’re doing. The more awareness, the more of a chance we have to gain support and reach a record-breaking accomplishment that will set the Voluntaryist series up as a serious competitor in the alternative comic book space.

We’re also doing our part to get the word out and have been promoting Voluntaryist on a number of shows and will be doing even more this upcoming week.

If you want to listen to some of our recent interviews, you can here:

On Hank Strange: https://utreon.com/v/-8D-ghp-Ru6

On Critical Blast: https://youtu.be/uhO_KDnqCD0

On Immortal Rising Comics: https://youtu.be/ar8w1Iq4-NA

On Freshly Based: https://youtu.be/eU2EcR2MOLU

Thank you again, everyone, for your generous support.

This 10th anniversary is groundbreaking for the series, and I genuinely believe this trade paperback compendium is going to put Voluntaryist on the map, especially in the ComicsGate community.

On that note, we will soon be announcing an official time for our campaign end livestream next week, but it will likely be Thursday, June 30th, around 9 p.m. Eastern on The Pholosopher YouTube channel.

So be sure to join in with us then as we celebrate with you and close in on that 3rd stretch goal!

Voluntaryist Origins V Print Comics Have Arrived – Next Steps

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I have some great news!

The Origins V comic came in a bit earlier than expected with the delays over at the printer, as you can see here:

They are out, in my hands, and looking AMAZING!

I will be working on fulfillment over the next month.

I am still waiting on one final stretch goal art piece to be finished so I can add it to your perk packages, but once that is in, they should be out to you shortly.

If all goes well, Christmas should come early for Voluntaryist Origins V backers!

If you are moving from your listed address by December, please do update your address with me through the Indiegogo dashboard or by contacting me with your perk information from Indiegogo at mr.voluntary(at)gmail.com

I want to make sure everyone gets what they ordered!

Thank you again as always for your generous support.

Projected Shipping Delay for Origins V Due To Printer

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

Hope you are doing well.

I wanted to give you an early heads-up that there is a delay from the printer (Ka-Blam). 

See:

Link to the post: https://www.facebook.com/KaBlamDigitalPrinting/…

I had placed my order for Origins V on September 30th:

And was crossing my fingers that all of the government malfeaseance wouldn’t have an impact…

But sadly (and predictably), all of the state tyranny has had a cumulative effect on supply chains and shipments.

That said, I have worked with Ka-Blam for 10 years because they are one of the largest comic printers in the world and are reliable for getting the final product to completion.

So I’m not worried at all about the comic’s eventual printing…just sad that it will take a little longer than expected.

I will keep you updated on when they finally get to my order and let you know when I think the comics will be out to you by.

If will you end up moving by the time of the projected shipment, please do reach out to me through the Indiegogo dashboard and let me know your updated address, or email me at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com with your order information and I will make sure your package goes to your updated address.

Thanks again for your generous support!

Looking forward,

Sneak Peek 5 – Voluntaryist Origins V

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

We are drawing CLOSE to completion of the Voluntaryist Origins V design process.

The first draft of letters is complete and the review + wrap on page arrangement is approaching shortly.

Here’s another sneak peek for you from the process:

That said, if you have moved or are planning to move soon, please UPDATE your address before we close update opportunities to prepare for printing and later shipment.

You can do so through the Indiegogo dashboard.

Once the comic wraps for print submission, the digital copy will be sent out to backers.

You’ll be seeing something in your e-mail VERY SOON. ( ;

That all said, Pho and I have a CRITICAL project we are working on that could really use your support.

Our latest song, DISOBEY, is currently funding for the music video production part on Indiegogo here:

https://igg.me/at/disobey

This is a sequel song to MASK ORDER which has nearly 100,000 views on YouTube alone.

See: 

We want to make this music video BIGGER, and BETTER than Mask Order and, to do that, we need the resources to be able to get more props, hire actors, and afford set help.

We’ve been pretty successful so far as you can see:

But that present success doesn’t have to be the end of the story.

With your additional support, we can increase our production quality and accomplish more hard-hitting shots that are guaranteed to make people think about how much the government has ruined our lives these past 2 years.

So, if you have not already, please consider heading over to the campaign here:

https://igg.me/at/disobey

to help us reach our next goal.

We’re almost to the second STRETCH GOAL:

Which will allow us to make another provocative art piece to send to backers at the art print tier or higher. It’s an art piece that is sure to turn heads and will be used for online promotion to rally the culture against the lockdowns, shutdowns, and mandates.

So THANK YOU to everyone who has supported the comic AND the music video’s creation and promotion.

You’re stepping up to turn the culture against the totalitarian police state.

Looking forward to the next update which will be the one letting you know that the comic has been sent out digitally to backers and to the printer’s.

Thank you for taking a stand with us!

In liberty,

Sneak Peek 4 for Voluntaryist Origins V +DISOBEY Music Video

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

The Voluntaryist Origins V colors are underway, so I have another sneak peek for you from the coloring process:

Also, if you have not already heard, Pho and I recorded and released a new song called, “DISOBEY,” taking on the tyrannical lockdown, shutdown, and mask/pass mandates.

You can listen to DISOBEY here:

We’re raising funds to create the music video as a sequel to our popular song, MASK ORDER, which has nearly 100,000 views on YouTube alone.

The campaign ends in a few weeks here: https://igg.me/at/disobey

And we’ve already hit the minimum amount we needed to create a basic video.

However, we still have room to grow because we want to get more props, actors, and set help, possibly letting us afford a bigger production crew with advanced filming equipment if we hit 10K.

Your support helps us create another hard-hitting, through-provoking culture piece in defiance of the police state.

So, if able, please consider joining the campaign and getting rewarded with some great perks.

We’ve even unlocked the first stretch goal, so those supporting at the sticker level or higher will already be eligible for EXTRA goodies.

Thank you again, as always, for your generous belief in our work.

Everything is going well so far and is on-track for success.

I’ve also been working on the perk designs and have even finished and printed the latest Voluntaryist game card. The new card for Bastiat is quite the beaut! ( ;

Voluntaryist Origins V is a SUCCESS! Next steps. ( :

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

WE DID IT!

The Voluntaryist Origins V comic book campaign is a 100%-funded success!

And we managed to not just unlock 1, but 2 STRETCH GOAL PERKS!

Everyone who supported at the print comic perk tier or higher will also be receiving an Agora character print and a NEW Voluntaryist team art print.

So thank YOU for your help in getting us to an AMAZING finish.

What’s next now that the campaign is officially closed?

The pencils for Origins V need to be wrapped first. I had been working on the pencils for a while, so we’re almost finished with all 24 pages and should be done with those in the next few weeks.

After penciling completes, the pages then go to the inker and colorist. That process should take 30-60 days depending on how booked those artists are.

When the colors and inks finish, they then will come back to me for lettering. I will probably be able to finish letters within a week of colors receipt.

Once the letters are done, it’s off to printing at Ka-Blam. Depending on how booked Ka-Blam is with conventions, the print and return process can take 40-80 days.

Once I get the print comics, I will then pack them in your perk mailers with your ordered extras/bonuses and ship them off to you!

I will be updating on the comic’s progress on Indiegogo and at http://volcomic.com, so you can keep up with the latest developments and see what stage the comic is at as we work on it.

If you end up needing to change your address because you will be moving in the next 3-4 months, you can always reach out through the Indiegogo dashboard or with an email to mr.voluntary (at) gmail (dot) com and I can update your order’s address to ensure your package gets to you.

I want to make sure that everyone gets what they ordered.

And, on that note of orders, there is an occasional accident where someone picks “Donation” instead of “Perk” on the campaign. You can tell if you did this because you did not enter in your address information.

If you accidentally selected “donation” instead of a perk, please reach out so I can notate what tier you qualify for and get your shipping remainder. I want to make sure you get your all of your goodies so you don’t miss out when the print comics arrive!

Thank you again, everyone, for your generous support of this latest Voluntaryist issue.

I am especially thrilled to be where we’re at with this series because the next issue (Origins VI) will be the last issue in the Origins arc!

It feels special to be so close to completing an entire Voluntaryist arc for the first time.

You’re forever a part of that history now.

Looking forward to updating you soon on the next stage.

Sneak Peek 4 + Special Announcements

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!Production on the comic is moving along smoothly and within schedule.

I am finishing up the last page’s pencils, then I have a batch of pages going in for inks and colors, to be followed by my lettering. I believe the comic should be wrapped within 2 months max, and then it will go to print.

With that in mind – a quick reminder to advertisers again – please make sure you have your finished advertisement pages to me by the end of February.

On that note – here is a another sneak peek of the comic:

I can wiggle a little more time if absolutely needed past that, but I would like to get the comic wrapped and out by the end of Spring at the latest so that we can move on to planning for the next issue. On that note – here is a another sneak peek of the comic:

ALSO! Pho and I have released a new product line, starting with some COOL AR and AK patches and a No Step On Snek Chibi keychain.

Origins III shipment WEB

I think you’re going to love them as much as I do and want to proudly display them.

Pho and I will be working diligently this week to arrange your perk orders and get them out to you a.s.a.p.

We are looking forward to hearing and seeing your excitement when you get the packages, so please keep us in mind if you make a celebratory post! We’d love to share it to the comic page!

Also, don’t forget to check out the ***NEW*** Voluntaryist SubscribeStar. There are already new comic pages posted continuing the story after Origins III. You won’t want to miss out on the latest updates. Check it out here: https://www.subscribestar.com/voluntaryist

I will update you next when the comics have been shipped out to you.

Thank you again for your generous time and support in bringing principled liberty to the comic world!

With gratitude,

Voluntaryist Origins III – Digital Comic E-mailed Out!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I am ecstatic to announce that the digital version of Voluntaryist Origins III is finally complete! Woohoo!

First page sneak peek preview:

First Page Sneak

Please be sure to check the e-mail you used for this campaign for a message from me with the digital download link inside. I think you’re really going to be impressed!

With the digital of Origins III complete, I ordered the print copy of the comics which are being shipped to me to combine with all the other perk goodies and bonus items you’re getting. I’m thrilled to be able to put your perk packages together and am looking forward to shipping each one of your perks out.

The comics should be shipping to you by March 2020. I will be making an announcement a few weeks before shipping, reminding everyone to update their mailing address if anything has changed since you placed your perk order. If you know that you’ll have a new address, please feel free to go ahead and update it right away if you know what it will be.

ALSO! I want to make ANOTHER exciting announcement:

Voluntaryist – The Comic Series will now be on SubscribeStar!

SubscribeStar is a platform like Patreon that allows for ongoing support of creators with special behind-the-scenes access and perks for support.

What this means is that, for future comic production, I will be continuing the Voluntaryist story on a rolling basis with new pages coming out each month instead of just doing a campaign once per year.

I will still be using Indiegogo to do special comic fulfillment fundraisers/events, but the ongoing support will come through SubscribeStar and you will be able to see the comic production as pencils, inks, letters, and colors come through.

What I hope to see is that, with your support, the Voluntaryist comic adventure can be something you get to look forward to each month and, eventually, each week.

Please check out the SubscribeStar page here: https://www.subscribestar.com/voluntaryist

and consider joining for the ongoing adventure!

I’m looking forward to updating you next when the print comics arrive!

Thank you again everyone for your continued support and fandom for Voluntaryist!

Voluntaryist Origins III – Sneak Peek 7 + Progress Notes

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I wanted to update you that the Origins III pencils, inks, and letters are complete and they look AMAZING!

I really think this is going to be the best Voluntaryist comic issue yet!

With that good news, I also want to keep you apprised of the fact that we are running SLIGHTLY behind schedule on finishing colors.

Jesse Hansen of Cornerstone Creative Studios takes ownership of this delay and is appreciative of our generous time extension so he can wrap up colors per our agreement.

You can see his public post on that delay here:

Update on Delay

SO, with that in mind, I don’t think this will lead to a delay in the delivery window. Things should still wrap up close to on-time if not still as expected.

And to thank you for your trust and support, here is another teaser of the comic:

Looking forward to getting you the digital copy of the comic this month! (And then on to print for 2020!)
