If you’re a U.S. backer, you should see your perk within 1-2 weeks. International backers should see theirs within 2-4 weeks.
If you do not receive anything by Jan. 2, 2022, please contact me through the Indiegogo dashboard or via email at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com so I can check on your perk and replace it if it ended up getting lost in the mail.
If you want to pick up any past print issues, you can over on Indyplanet here:
Origins V will be available for print copy purchase on Indyplanet soon, but the rest of the past issues are up and ready for selection. And, if you’re looking for something special to give that liberty-loving family member or friend this Christmas, check out the Voluntaryist Store over at:
There’s all kinds of liberty goodies- from shirts, to stickers, to hats, and buttons- all with a liberty theme!
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.
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.
This is a sequel song to MASK ORDER which has nearly 100,000 views on YouTube alone.
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:
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.
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.
