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!

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.

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!

In liberty,

Voluntaryist Origins VI is a success! Next steps.

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

We did it!

The 10th Anniversary Voluntaryist campaign is a complete success with both hitting goal and unlocking 3 stretch goals!

This means that all physical perk backers will be getting a bonus sticker for hitting goal and those at the print comic tier and above will also be getting the bonus character sheet, bonus game card, and Voluntaryist team art print on top.

To thank you for going above and beyond for this issue, I am going to go ahead and unlock the 4th stretch goal bonus and add that to your perk packages as my way of saying, Thank you!” for giving me this opportunity to take the Origins story and put it into a start-to-finish remastered read. So that will add on another Voluntaryist art print and a die cut sticker to your perk packages at the print comic tier and higher.

I could not have made it this far if it was not for your generous support and trust in building out the Voluntaryist universe.

That said, there are some important details for you to be aware of so that everything goes smoothly as I work toward creating the comics and fulfilling the perks.

I will be working incrementally on the comic sequentials, starting with issue VI. I have already completed over a dozen pencil pages for issue VI, but we still need to finish the rest of the issue and then lay the inks, colors, and letters.

As I am working incrementally, issue VI will be finished first before the Origins I and II remasters.

I plan on shipping out the issue VI perks as soon as that issue and the associated perks are ready.

This means that those who got the trade paperback or the I-VI single issue set will get their perks later when the remasters and new covers are complete.

I estimate that the issue VI perks could be finished by the end of 2022 to early 2023.

The trade paperback will likely take until closer to the estimated delivery date in late 2023 because it involves both remastering issues 1 and 2 and adding more pages to give extra lettering space.

I will be making updates at least once per month through the Indiegogo page and in parallel on the http://volcomic.com Website.

So, if you are ever wondering what’s going on with the development, please be sure to check with either site so you can get the latest progression update.

I will also give everyone a heads-up update message whenever I plan to do shipment.

Please be sure to update your address if you have moved or plan to move by the time shipping is to take place.

You can log into the Indiegogo dashboard for this campaign and update your address there for us. You can also e-mail me at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com if you have any trouble logging in with the email you used for your perk purchase.

You can read the Indiegogo FAQ for more helpful information:

https://support.indiegogo.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002383767-Backer-FAQ

If you are an advertiser, please get in touch with me at least a week before the end of August, 2022, so that we can go over your ad to make sure it’s fit for print. I sent all advertisers an e-mail detailing the format with the comic book template attached for respective single and double-page ads. If you did not get this, check your spam box. If it’s not there, please message me at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com so that I can make sure you have the needed sizing specs and template for your ad.

For those who chose the “donation” option on Indiegogo (which really should be labelled “gift” because we’re not a charitable organization), you will not be getting a perk. You can tell that this was selected if you did not get a prompt for putting in your shipping information when you checked out (minus the digital early release which has no shipping). If you did this in error, but would like to get a perk, please let me know what tier you supported with by emailing me at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com and I will invoice you for the shipping to get your shipment address.

This is going to be a wild ride getting this project done, but I have never been more thankful and excited because this finished compendium is going to make Voluntaryist a serious competitor in the alt comics world with having the Origins story in a completed format I can readily showcase for convention tabling.

Cheers to us in helping be the change we want to see, especially with the direction mainstream comics have taken these past few years.

You are AWESOME!

In liberty,

Voluntaryist Origins VI First Stretch Goal Unlocked!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I have some exciting news! As of today, June 2nd, the first STRETCH GOAL has been UNLOCKED!

Wooohoo!

What this means is that ALL print comic tier and higher backers will now receive a BONUS character sheet art print in addition to all their other perk goodies and the bonus sticker for hitting goal.

On top of that, I will be creating a variant cover for Origins V.

Those who got the 1-6 perk set will receive an Origins V issue with the new cover!

If you are still sitting on the fence with a lower perk tier, now’s the time to upgrade to the print copy because you are guaranteed BOTH the bonus sticker AND the bonus character art sheet!

There’s still plenty of time for us to move on up too and unlock the other listed stretch goals, so be sure to share the campaign to your social media so that more goodies can be released as we go further in the campaign.

On a separate note, both Pho and I will be going on more interviews and hosting more streams to promote the comic series coming up.

One of the interviews on the #comicsgate track will be with the Critical Blast Podcast on Wednesday, June 8th, at 8 p.m. Eastern.

https://www.youtube.com/c/Criticalblast/videos

We will be streaming live and sharing our story about how the Voluntaryist universe came to life and what we’ve been working on over the years.

If you’re free, pop on in and say “Hi!” during the stream so we can help pump up the visibility metrics and get the word out.

Thank you so much again, everyone, for your generous time and help in getting Voluntaryist to this record-breaking momentum!

I think you’re going to LOVE all the work we’re putting into it with the new art and remastering.

Looking forward to sharing the next update with you soon!

My first-ever non-fiction book: The Definitive Guide to Libertarian Voluntaryism

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

While you may have come to know me for my fictional Voluntaryist comic book story, I finally decided to make my first non-fiction book in line with the Voluntaryist universe.

It’s the culmination of 15 years of activism and study within the libertarian-Voluntaryist spectrum.

It’s NOT a history book.

It’s NOT a summary of other’s works.

It’s not a bunch of pull-quotes from past thinkers.

This is my unifying the fields of property rights and consent ethics theories into a universal philosophy that anyone can readily relate to and defend.

By the nature of the work, it will be challenging in many ways because it introduces a new basis by which to framework WHY one would want to uphold property rights and consent ethics.

You’ll be surprised, intrigued, and provoked to deeper investigation in the process.

But, unlike many other libertarian works, I’ve distilled the concepts into the minimum description needed to get people to understand the basics and their applications.

That makes it accessible for anyone, whether you’re a seasoned Misesian or are new to Voluntaryist thought.

No matter what, I hope you enjoy the ride and that it at least sharpens your thinking in the process.

Cheers to your kind support, from helping me refine my thoughts in conversation, to getting your own edition for the liberty bookshelf!

In liberty,

And, MOST IMPORTANTLY, please remember to check out, share, and support the next Voluntaryist campaign for Origins VI when it launches, tentatively, summer, 2022.

We will not only be completing the Origins arc with issue VI, but also hope to remake Origins I and II to bring the series into conformity with the later artist’s designs, and, put ALL the Voluntaryist Origins comics into a single trade paperback compendium.

It will be an essential collectible for any Voluntaryist fan.
Thank you so much for believing in me and the Voluntaryist comic book series. I could not have accomplished this feat without your generous support over the years.

Let’s make 2022 the best year for liberty yet!

With eternal gratitude,

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.

Looking forward in liberty,

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 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.

Sneak Peek 3 – Voluntaryist Origins V

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

Everything is moving along swimmingly with the Voluntaryist Origins V production process.

I have another SNEAK PEEK to share with you from our inking stage:

The details are filling in quite nicely.

If you want to order past issues, you can do so over at Indyplanet here:

https://indyplanet.com/?s=Voluntaryist

Pho and I recently attended YAL Revolution and we got a little spoiled by having a private meet with the legendary Ron Paul:

He’s still the same guy trying to get people to realize that government is not the solution to their problems.

Looking forward to updating you on the next development for Voluntaryist Origins V!

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.

I have all the additional special perks already produced and readied for shipment.

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.

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

Facebook Link To That Post

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:

Jesse Hansen, the art team lead, has been wonderfully helpful in ensuring that this will be a smooth production process. He’s excited to be working on this title and to bring the quality to the next level.

It’s my small way of saying, “Thank you!” for being so generous with your time, link shares, and contributions.

In addition to that extra perk, I can also announce that we will be able to produce a FULL-LENGTH ISSUE with a solid 24 standard pages! You can pat yourselves on the back for going above-and-beyond to help make this comic the best yet!

With the campaign officially closed, I will now be taking the next steps to get production underway.

Once the funds release to me, I will be immediately working with our new creative team at Cornerstone Creative Studios, handing over the script and character descriptors so that they can get to work on the initial pencils and inks.

I will also begin working on non-comic perk orders. Those who ordered a perk that does not involve a print comic will get your goodies a little sooner than the projected delivery date.

Those who ordered the physical comic will receive their perks together with the other extras that come with the order.

My expected delivery date is March 2020. I hope to get it to you sooner, but I want to make sure that I leave enough time in case of any unexpected delays from third parties in the production process.

I will be updating you when I send out the non-comic perks and will be sharing teasers here on Indiegogo, Facebook, Minds, and the main Website as production comes along.

As always, if you have any thoughts or questions, you can reach me at mr.voluntary[at]gmail[dot]com.

I will be reaching out a few weeks before shipment through the campaign dashboard to make sure that everyone has provided their most up-to-date address. I want to ensure everyone gets what they ordered.

I’m humbled by how much care and engagement you’ve given Origins III and I cannot wait to bring a smile to your face with a perk package you’ll be proud to show off!

Thank you for believing in me and this comic.

I’m looking forward to another successful production process as we continue to design the canon origins story for Voluntaryist!

THE ORIGINS II COMICS HAVE SHIPPED!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

Today is the wonderful day I get to tell you that your comics have gone out for shipment! Virtually all perks have now been mailed, so please keep your eyes out for them in the coming weeks. Most of you will likely see your comic come to you within the next week or two. International orders, within the next 3-4 weeks max.

I am grateful to you, the Voluntaryist fans, for being a part of this MONUMENTAL achievement in producing the first full-length Voluntaryist comic issue with 24 pages. It’s humbling that, after 6 years of hard work in prototyping, we now have a canon Voluntaryist line that is being continued chronologically here on out.

I appreciate every person here who supported with perks and shares of the campaign, and I look forward to bringing you a whole new level of quality and experience with this next upcoming comic campaign in Indiegogo.

In preparation for improving the process so the expectations are reasonable, I have adjusted the time framing for the next campaign delivery to ensure that we have enough time to deal with unforeseen delays from third parties. I also am working with a new art group which is going to bring a new level of artistic quality to the comic, and I think you’ll be impressed when you see the new cover in full with the Origins III campaign.

Please do come visit on March 30th and April 1st for the launch. You’ll be able to see the campaign link on the main Webiste at http://www.volcomic.com and at the Voluntaryist Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/volcomics

If you want, please feel free to share unboxing pictures on social media with the hashtags #voluntaryist and #volcomic as I’d love to see you get your awesome comics and bonus goodies.

Thank you again for bringing true liberty to the comic world!

With gratitude,

Voluntaryist Origins II – Update on Progress + Sneak Peek 7

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

Thank you so much again for your patience in the adjusted delivery timeline for Voluntaryist Origins II! I appreciate your kindness and consideration as we have been working through the final stages of production.

I wanted to give you the latest update from our publishing group, Short Fuse Media, on the status of the comic. I have been told that the letters will be completed this week and that the art director will make any adjustments to the final letters as he goes through the other edits that were needed.

If things go as planned, the digital comic should be out to you by January 2019, and I will be promptly printing and shipping perks thereafter.

To celebrate this update, I am also including two sneak peeks – a colored panel and a colored card element.

I hope you and yours have a lovely holiday and a happy new year!

Let’s make 2019 the year of growth for liberty culture together!

Yours truly,

-J ( :

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!
