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!

Voluntaryist Origins III – Sneak Peek 3

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I hope you are doing well and that you’re having a well-rested labor day!

Everything is going well with production so far and I have been enjoying the pencils/inks process.

This next sneak peek is from one of the stretch goal bonus items.

Can you guess who it is?

I hope you enjoy this teaser and I look forward to sharing another one as production continues.

Funds have been disbursed and production has begun! WOOHOO!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I am ecstatic to announce that Indiegogo FINALLY processed my campaign and sent out the funds. It was a joy to wake up to and see that we could actually get on to making the comic now.

indiegogo disbursement sent

This morning I sent out the script, character details, and specs to our new comic production team, Cornerstone Creative Studios. 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.

I will update you every few weeks with teasers/sneak peeks as the pencils, inks, colors, and letters come through.

Thank you again for your patience in waiting on this unusual delay with Indiegogo’s review process.

Let’s make this Voluntaryist issue the best one yet!

The Voluntaryist Origins III Campaign Wraps Up A SUCCESS!

Hello, Voluntaryist Fans!

I am excited to announce that the Voluntaryist Origins III Indiegogo Campaign has ended on unprecedented heights!

campaign close success Voluntaryist origins III

Thanks to you, we had 124 backers raising a total of $6,324!

This means that Voluntarist Origins III has officially beaten all past records in support!

To thank you for this, I am going to give all physical comic backers the third stretch goal in addition to the two we unlocked! So now you have not onenot twobut THREE BONUS ITEMS!

stretch goals all unlocked voluntaryist origins III

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 campaign has been a wild success so far! Not only is Origins III the best-funded campaign of all-time, but we have also reached one of our first STRETCH GOALS FOR THE FIRST TIME!

Thanks to your generous support, all those who ordered a perk at a print comic level or higher will also be receiving a special Voluntaryist art print in addition to your expected perk goodies!

But wait! There’s more!

We have two ADDITIONAL stretch goals to reach that I think you’ll be quite delighted to see.

The best part is that we’re almost to stretch goal No. 2 at $6,000 with $5,831 raised so far!

So if you only got a digital perk, now is the time to upgrade to both get yourself a physical comic copy and UNLOCK even MORE BONUS PERKS THAT YOU’LL RECEIVE FOR BECOMING A PRINT COMIC BACKER!

As always, one last share of the campaign link to your social is appreciated to finish out strong, so please do so by this evening so that last-minute support can come through to release the last STRETCH GOALS!

Finally – there is one FINAL RECORD of all time to break: BACKER TOTAL!

The highest backer total for a single campaign is Origins II at 119. If we reach 120 backers before close, I will throw in an ADDITIONAL BONUS to thank everyone for getting Origins III to break every single past Voluntaryist Indiegogo record!

Pho and I will be live streaming tonight, March 28th, from 9 p.m. until 11 p.m. Eastern (at least) to promote beating the total backer record, so please join us if you can on Facebook and YouTube.

Voluntaryist Tabling Photos from LPF con 2019!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I wanted to share some photos with you from my most recent tabling at the Florida LP convention. I had a great time getting to meet up with liberty-lovers of all kinds including die-hard Voluntaryist fans and new people who hadn’t heard about the series before!

It was encouraging to see so many who are not only passionate about principled liberty, but who also care enough to support creative projects carrying the torch forward.

I am looking forward to seeing what other tabling opportunities I can participate in to grow the Voluntaryist comic fandom!

Thank you again, everyone, for supporting Voluntaryist Origins III. Your support has enabled me to continue expanding Voluntaryist world to new venues!

Cheers in liberty,

Voluntaryist Origins III half-way update! Woohoo!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I just wanted to update you on the progress of the campaign as we have now hit the halfway point with 30 more days to go.

So far, we have raised 55% of goal, sitting at $2,788 raised – which is fantastic progress!

55 percent funded Origins III

In order to finish strong, it will be important that those of you who already have supported share the comic campaign to your social media to help get the word out so we can cross the finish line at 100%!

If you would, please take a moment to share the comic campaign link here:

https://igg.me/at/origins3

to your social media profiles so that Voluntaryist Origins III gets out to new faces, sharing an AWESOME comic story rooted in the principles of liberty.

An aside, I managed to see both Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame this weekend. No spoilers – but I do want to note that both movies left me with a reminder of why I am doing what I am with Voluntaryist.​

While action sequences and special effects improve, character dialogue and philosophical thinking continue to grow thin, leaving much to be desired.

In supporting this series, you’re helping to bring about a new level of intellectual intrigue and an incredible, contemporary discourse on what it means to be truly free.

So thank you so much for your support again in this journey!

I will be keeping you posted on developments and will be making a few more live stream appearances with The Pholosopher to promote the comic and talk about comic culture in general, so be sure to stay tuned for updates on our Facebook page and Website at:

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!

Action Figure Line Sneak Peek

***A special aside announcement from the Origins II production.***

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I just got word that Short Fuse Media Group, LLC. owner and director Sean Mack has gotten a batch of action figures for their new Indieverse Unlimited Action Figure Line. As you can see, Voluntaryist – The Comic Series is among them! So I am excited that they have been successful in their prototyping process so that we may offer you, in the near future, high-quality next-level Voluntaryist action figures! I am grateful to Sean for the opportunity to be a part of the process and look forward to more good things.

I think you’ll be enjoying them too!

Voluntaryist Origins II Sneak Peek 9 + Critical Update

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

Thank you so much again for your patience in the adjusted delivery timeline for Voluntaryist Origins II!

I wanted to share with you some good news and some critical news as relates to the comic development.

I have received the letters for my approval and they all look pretty good with some small adjustments to be made.

So I am happy to see that the comic is truly nearing completion overall.

However, I must tell you that I have not been happy with the delay from the publishing group, Short Fuse Media, LLC. They are late on contract, and I have reached a critical point where I have told them that the comic must be delivered to me, in full, by January 26th or I will have another team finish it.

I am sad that it has reached this point, but I am thankful that I have at least received artwork as paid for, so there is no overall problem in completing the comic, just in whether Short Fuse will deliver on-time by my final delivery acceptance offer.

So, with that in mind, I do hope that Short Fuse delivers this month and you are able to receive the digital copy so you can know the comic production is complete and will wrap up with your perks sent to you soon.

I take full responsibility for allowing their lateness to continue this far, and I do appreciate that you have been patient in waiting with me.

To that end, if anyone has ANY questions about the comic production process, I am happy to talk with you face-to-face online and show you what has been done and discuss any details.

Your trust and confidence in me is critical, and I want to do everything I can within reason to maintain it because I VALUE your support.
So please feel free to take the opportunity if you wish to have a one-on-one with me to discuss anything. I am here and I am open for you.

That said, I do have in-hand most all completed inks, colors, and letters – so it is just a matter of finalizing the last edits that, hopefully, will be concluded by Short Fuse in about a week.

Thank you again for your support. I PROMISE that when you receive your perks, you will open them and be happily surprised at the bonuses I have added as an apology for the unforeseen lateness. I hope that it brings you a smile and new confidence in me for the next comic issue as I plan to keep working on Voluntaryist and producing it until I die. It’s a lifetime endeavor.

I’m looking forward to hopefully getting you the digital copy of the comic this month, and then proceeding to get you the physical perks thereafter.

In liberty and with humble appreciation,

Voluntaryist Origins II Mini Update + Sneak Peek 8

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

Thank you so much again for your patience in the adjusted delivery timeline for Voluntaryist Origins II!

Here is another sneak peek to hold you over until I receive my next update from Short Fuse:

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 – 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,
