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!

In liberty,

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,

-J ( :

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!

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,

Hello friends!

We have done an amazing job so far! Right now, our campaign has been shared over 2,800 times on social media and we have raised over $1,200! Outstanding work! We have just a few weeks left to go now, so, if you would, please take the time each week to share the campaign and let others know about our goal! The best way to reach out is if we do it together, and that means sharing the campaign on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit, Google+, or in conversation with friends!

Let’s make this the most memorable issue yet as we take on a subject that is happening right now as you read this! (This message has probably already been sucked into the NSA’s Tempora and XKeyscore system.)

Together – we can tackle the NSA and raise awareness about government spying!

Thank you in liberty!

Voluntaryists Versus Statist Zombies Comic – Indiegogo Campaign Now Live

Check out the Voluntaryists vs. Statist Zombies comic campaign on: http://igg.me/at/volzombies/x/952007

When the U.S. government decides to test a new mind control chemical on the public, they get more brain-for-the-buck than they hoped for! Zombification leads to Keynesian-style economic “stimulus” and a relentless inquiry of, “Who will build the roads?” Fortunately, the liberty-loving ladies of Voluntaryist might be able to to curtail the chaos…but can they do it without violating the N.A.P.? Find out and join us on this next issue of Voluntaryist – The Comic Series!

In this issue we bring you the leading ladies: Voluntaria, AnCat, and Agora!

Help make the next big adventure happen!

Beginning work on the second issue!

Hello friends!

Just received the monies for the comic today and am beginning work on the comic’s production. I sent off the storyboard outlines to the primary artist and am ready to make this some of the best content yet!

There will be 1 cover and 4 primary pages, each giving a backgrounder on a new character. I will then be seeing about adding in special sections with additional shorts.

Thank you again for you support! Looking forward in liberty!
