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!

Pho and I will be doing one last live stream Tuesday night (March 28th) as the campaign comes to a close, so join us as we wrap up the final hours and talk about the next steps with the comic! (Time of stream to be announced that day.)

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,

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,

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:

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,

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!

In liberty,
