I will be taking a break from Indiegogo for a little while to drum up support for Voluntaryist through SubscribeStar. Eventually though, I will return to Indiegogo when we’re ready to put together print copies of the rest of the Origins story.

Thank you so much, everyone, for believing in me and the Voluntaryist message. Your commitment has helped bring the Voluntaryist comic to a new level of accessibility and quality that will continue from here on out.

You’re the real heroes of this adventure!

Voluntaryist Origins III – Digital Comic E-mailed Out!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I am ecstatic to announce that the digital version of Voluntaryist Origins III is finally complete! Woohoo!

First page sneak peek preview:

First Page Sneak

Please be sure to check the e-mail you used for this campaign for a message from me with the digital download link inside. I think you’re really going to be impressed!

With the digital of Origins III complete, I ordered the print copy of the comics which are being shipped to me to combine with all the other perk goodies and bonus items you’re getting. I’m thrilled to be able to put your perk packages together and am looking forward to shipping each one of your perks out.

The comics should be shipping to you by March 2020. I will be making an announcement a few weeks before shipping, reminding everyone to update their mailing address if anything has changed since you placed your perk order. If you know that you’ll have a new address, please feel free to go ahead and update it right away if you know what it will be.

ALSO! I want to make ANOTHER exciting announcement:

Voluntaryist – The Comic Series will now be on SubscribeStar!

SubscribeStar is a platform like Patreon that allows for ongoing support of creators with special behind-the-scenes access and perks for support.

What this means is that, for future comic production, I will be continuing the Voluntaryist story on a rolling basis with new pages coming out each month instead of just doing a campaign once per year.

I will still be using Indiegogo to do special comic fulfillment fundraisers/events, but the ongoing support will come through SubscribeStar and you will be able to see the comic production as pencils, inks, letters, and colors come through.

What I hope to see is that, with your support, the Voluntaryist comic adventure can be something you get to look forward to each month and, eventually, each week.

Please check out the SubscribeStar page here: https://www.subscribestar.com/voluntaryist

and consider joining for the ongoing adventure!

I’m looking forward to updating you next when the print comics arrive!

Thank you again everyone for your continued support and fandom 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. (Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/dapholosopher/YouTube link: https://youtube.com/thepholosopher)

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 Campaign Complete

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

I am excited to announce that we have completed our Voluntaryist Origins Indiegogo comic campaign!

While we did not reach our lofty backing goal, we did reach AMAZING heights with this campaign that make Voluntaryist Origins the MOST SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGN EVER.

In this campaign, we:

  • Hit the No. 1 spot on Indiegogo comics!
  • Reached over 5,200 fans on our Facebook!
  • Reached 97 backers – BEATING ALL PREVIOUS RECORDS!
  • Raised over $3,600 – OUR HIGHEST-FUNDED CAMPAIGN OF ALL TIME!

Because of this, I can tell you that not only will this comic be the longest in our production history, but it will be the first full industry-standard comic book we have completed in one shot.

The Voluntaryist Origins story will be released as a “Part 1” with Part 2 to be worked on soon.

Thank you so much again for your generous time in sharing the campaign and contributing support! You’re the reason why the next evolution in culture and liberty is taking place. I promise to you as I have with each campaigns’ backers to make this issue the best one yet. I will be giving the production process my utmost attention and taking the feedback I have received over the years to ensure that every aspect of this comic is artful and articulate.

COMIC PRODUCTION DETAILS AND TIMELINE

The comic production process will begin after the funding is released from Indiegogo in about two weeks. I will be working with our production team to set the storyboarding for the primary penciling artist. The drawing and revision process will take 6-8 weeks with a coloring and lettering process of another 6-8 weeks afterward.

As per the campaign timeline, I will begin fulfilling those who ordered solely non-comic perks first in the coming weeks.

Those who ordered print comics alone or with other items will receive their comic bundle once the production process is complete.

As we work on the process, I will be posting teasers on our website, http://volcomic.com and on our Facebook page, http://facebook.com/volcomics

Please check back at those sites if you want to get some sneak peeks over the next few months.

If you will be moving in the coming months, please make sure to send us an updated address to mr.voluntary[at]gmail.com We will send a reminder e-mail before we ship major comic perks as well.

I’m still stunned at how well this campaign performed. I think 2017 might just be the beginnings of some greater strides toward more Voluntaryist virtues!

In liberty,

Shielding Assange first sneak peek!

Hello friends!

Those who ordered solely non-printed comic perks had their goodies shipped out over a week ago. Hopefully they all have arrived safe. If not, please let me know at mr.voluntary[at]gmail.com. Those who ordered a printed comic perk along with anything else will get everything they ordered all at once once production is complete.

The production of the comic is underway as scheduled. As such, I have the first sneak peek teaser for you to share. Enjoy this clip from our upcoming release Shielding Assange: The Voluntaryists vs. the NSA 2!

Shielding Assange Sneak Peek 1

 

 


SUCCESS! Shielding Assange: The Voluntaryists vs. the NSA 2

shielding assange successHello friends!

WOW! That’s what I have to say to what has become the second-highest supported Voluntaryist comic of all time! Shielding Assange: The Voluntaryists versus the NSA 2 is now set to become the longest issue to date, beating the record 14 pages from last issue. We managed to raise $2,833- an INCREDIBLE FEAT! I’m the most excited for this issue out of any because the page space will allow for major developments on all fronts: character, narrative, action, and liberty!

The funds will be disbursed to me in the next 2 weeks. Afterward, I will be working to make sure the story is set just right to the budget raised. The script will then go to our primary artist for review. He will then work with me on the storyboarding and hash out the inked pages. After inking, the pages go to the colorists and letterers and then back to me for final approval. If all goes as planned, we should be getting out the digital comic just into the fall months and the physical comic just before winter, if not sooner.

Those who ordered non-comic perks will begin to see those sent out within the next month in June.

If you ordered the latest issue bundled with a perk, you will receive your comic and your perks together. Check the estimated delivery date on the Indiegogo.com campaign to see when it will be complete as well as our updates here.

If you will be moving in the coming months, please make sure to update your address for any perks. I will be posting updates through Indiegogo.com to remind you, but can always let us know via e-mail at mr.voluntary[at}gmail.com

If you have any questions or comments, please always feel free to reach out on the Website at http://volcomic.com on the Facebook page at http://facebook.com/volcomics or again directly via e-mail at mr.voluntary{at}gmail.com.

While working on this issue, I will be also preparing plans to make the full origins graphic novel. The origins story of Voluntaryist has been about 4 years in the making, but I never built a campaign around it because I felt that the fandom wasn’t large enough to rally support. After seeing Captain America: Civil War’s success and the 3,000+ fans now on the Voluntaryist facebook page, I think the time has finally come to create the foundation masterpiece.

Thank you again for believing in this comic series. It’s great to finally have something of substance in the entertainment world that truly embraces free markets, free minds, and voluntary living.

With humble appreciation and love,
