The Origins V comic came in a bit earlier than expected with the delays over at the printer, as you can see here:
They are out, in my hands, and looking AMAZING!
I will be working on fulfillment over the next month.
I am still waiting on one final stretch goal art piece to be finished so I can add it to your perk packages, but once that is in, they should be out to you shortly.
If all goes well, Christmas should come early for Voluntaryist Origins V backers!
If you are moving from your listed address by December, please do update your address with me through the Indiegogo dashboard or by contacting me with your perk information from Indiegogo at mr.voluntary(at)gmail.com
I want to make sure everyone gets what they ordered!
Thank you again as always for your generous support.
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.
I am excited to announce that all perks have been shipped!
International backers should see theirs within 3 weeks and U.S. backers should see theirs within a week.
If you do not receive your perk within those respective time frames, please contact us through the Indiegogo dashboard so we can check your tracking number to see if you package was lost and replace it if it was.
We really appreciate seeing when backers get their perks, so feel free to post a picture of your perks to your social media when they arrive, whether on Facebook, Minds, MeWe, Twitter, Flote, Steemit, YouTube, or otherwise, and TAG/@ US, so we can celebrate with you! ( :
Now that the campaign is fully wrapped, you may be wondering when the Origins V campaign will launch.
The good news is that it will launch sooner this year, as we’re planning for a campaign launch this May, 2021! So please be sure to check back on the Voluntaryist website at http://volcomic.com to find out when the campaign has officially opened for support!
In the meantime, if you have not already, please be sure to check out Pho’s latest patches over at http://treesofliberty.org and our in-person event coming up soon this April 3rd, with details and tickets over at http://phoevents.com
We’re looking forward to seeing you and staying in touch as we host more in-person events throughout the year – so come on out and say “Hi!”
Thank you again for helping bring the principles of liberty to the comic book world.
Let’s do it again in 2021 with Voluntaryist Origins V soon!
The Voluntaryist Origins IV comic campaign closed at an AMAZING $5,755! We unlocked the first stretch goal, so all backers at the print comic level and higher will be receiving an extra special Voluntaryist team art print.
ALSO! To thank you for going above-and-beyond, I will be adding 4 more pages to the promised page count, making the issue a full-length 24 pages. It will be awesome!
As for next steps, Indiegogo should release the funds to me within two weeks, if not sooner. I will then begin working on fulfilling perks as elements come to completion.
I had already been working on the comic, so I should get the comic out to you much sooner than anticipated, hopefully Spring 2021.
Which is a reminder to those who purchased advertisements – please have your completed advertisement content to me by or before February 1st, 2021. I will be contacting you to follow up on the advertisement layouts and helping you with any questions you may have.
Everyone otherwise please be sure to check and make sure you entered your information properly.Sometimes, people accidentally select “donation” instead of “perk.” If you did this, please let me know and I will note that you wanted the perk for the tier you supported at. If you did intentionally support without selecting a perk, that’s great and I appreciate the kind gesture!
If you end up moving or know you will move by March, 2021, please be sure to update your mailing information in the campaign dashboard. I will also send out an update reminder before mailing out the final perks to remind people to update their address if needed.
If you have any other questions, comments, or concerns, please message me through the Indiegogo dashboard and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thank you so much again, everyone, for making Voluntaryist Origins IV a reality and helping to bring to life one of the coolest liberty-themed comic series in print!
I am ecstatic to announce that the digital version of Voluntaryist Origins III is finally complete! Woohoo!
First page sneak peek preview:
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.
I am excited to announce that the Voluntaryist Origins III Indiegogo Campaign has ended on unprecedented heights!
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 one, not two, butTHREE BONUS ITEMS!
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!
I am excited to announce that Voluntaryist Origins III has reached 100% of funding!
Woohoo! We did it!
Because we reached the main goal, we now how have time to reach for STRETCH GOALS!
The first three stretch goals are as follows:
$5,500: A NEW special Voluntaryist art print to all backers at the physical comic level or above.
$6,000: A NEW voluntaryist game card to all backers at the physical comic level or above.
$6,500: A NEW voluntaryist character design pinup sheet to all backers at the physical comic level or above.
So, if you didn’t get a physical comic perk yet, now is the time to join in and upgrade to get us to the new stretch goals for print comic backers!
Don’t worry though if you don’t have any more pocket change to spare – you can still help us unlock the new stretch goals by sharing the campaign to your social media, getting the word out to those who have not yet seen the campaign!
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.)
Thank you so much again, everyone, for your generous help and support in bringing the Voluntaryist Origins III comic to life! I am excited to know that this comic was a success and am looking forward to making this issue the best of all time!
-J ( :
Campaign link to share: https://igg.me/at/origins3
We have NEW Voluntaryist superhero tees, action figures, game cards, art cards, and MUCH MORE!
We’ve taken steps to ensure that this comic campaign runs smoothly by hiring a new local art team and adjusting delivery times so we can handle any unexpected delays from third parties.
So you can support with confidence!
Even if you don’t have pocket change to spare, you can share the campaign link or promo video to your social media to help get the word out. This both boosts our visibility on Indiegogo in reaching out to new people and informs others about the comic’s launch.
I’m looking forward to making this comic issue the best everand growing the Voluntaryist universe with you!
Thank you again for your generous continuing support.
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.
