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,

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

WOOHOO! The rest of the Origins II comics have arrived!

This morning I shipped out what I could from what I had been given in the first box from Ka-Blam. Now that I have the rest, I will be fulfilling the remainder of the orders.

Most everyone should receive their comic perks within 2 weeks, many within the next week. 

Please be on the lookout and feel free to share your perk package opening with us on social media!

It’s been a LONG journey but lots of fun with goods things to come.

I have also just received the cover for Origins III and have been working diligently to ensure that everything will be smooth on this next upcoming campaign.

I will be waiting to launch the campaign until these perks are shipped to ensure that everyone is happy and confident in our work. The campaign is tentatively scheduled for March 30th, so please stop by www.volcomic.com and www.facebook.com/volcomics to see what is taking place at that time.

I also have been working on some new perks that will hopefully excite you, including a new Voluntaryist tee. You can take a look at the work-in-progress:

Thank you again for your kindness, support, and understanding.

I hope that when you open the perk packages it gives you a HUGE SMILE when you see the extras I added in to thank you for your patience. ( :

Voluntaryist Origins II – Digital Comic Sent Out!

digital comic sent out voluntaryist origins II

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

It is with great excitement that I can announce the comic design process has been completed!

So with that, I present to you the Voluntaryist Origins II comic in digital form. The download link should have been sent to your e-mail. If you did not receive it and were supposed to, please contact me right away at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com. I want to make sure you get it.  ( :

Thank you so much, everyone, for your extraordinary patience and kind support as I know it was frustrating to have to wait longer than expected for our estimated delivery.

Now that the digital process has come to a close, I have ordered the physical copies of the comic and game cards. The turnaround time for that depends on how fast Ka-Blam can get the comics to me, which is usually contingent on convention traffic. Fortunately, this isn’t convention season, so I expect a little faster processing time, though they gave me a “by-or-before March 1st.”

Once I do get the printed comics, I will update everyone and ask that anyone who has changed addresses to let me know of your new address so I can be sure to get your perks to you.

I’m looking forward to personally compiling and signing off on each of your perk packages, and cannot wait for you to show off the cool extras I’m throwing in.

Because this took extra time, I am going to wait to launch my next campaign until I have shipped out these perks. I want everyone to be confident in the work and the successful completion first before asking for your trust again on the next comic issue.

And, you can believe this: I have worked extra hard to ensure that, going forward, there will be even smoother, higher-quality output. You’ll get to see it especially when the next teasers come out for the continuing Origins story campaign.

As always, if you have any questions, thoughts, or concerns, I’m here for you and will make myself available to speak with you concerning anything on the comic process and delivery. You can reach me at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com.

I hope you enjoy this issue as much as I did in bringing it to life.

Looking forward to more comic culture in liberty,

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!

I don’t have anything new yet on my end as I am still waiting on final edit delivery from Short Fuse Media (the production team), but I wanted to keep you up-to-date that everything otherwise appears to be moving along.

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

Also, I wanted to share with you a music video I produced with The Pholosopher called “AnCap Grind.” Voluntaryist character “Voluncap” makes a guest appearance in cosplay, so I think you will enjoy that visual treat. Video here:

Thank you so much again for your support! I am excited and eager to get your perks to you and begin the process for the next comic issue!

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 ( :
