Sneak Peek 4 for Voluntaryist Origins V +DISOBEY Music Video

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

The Voluntaryist Origins V colors are underway, so I have another sneak peek for you from the coloring process:

Also, if you have not already heard, Pho and I recorded and released a new song called, “DISOBEY,” taking on the tyrannical lockdown, shutdown, and mask/pass mandates.

You can listen to DISOBEY here:

We’re raising funds to create the music video as a sequel to our popular song, MASK ORDER, which has nearly 100,000 views on YouTube alone.

The campaign ends in a few weeks here: https://igg.me/at/disobey

And we’ve already hit the minimum amount we needed to create a basic video.

However, we still have room to grow because we want to get more props, actors, and set help, possibly letting us afford a bigger production crew with advanced filming equipment if we hit 10K.

Your support helps us create another hard-hitting, through-provoking culture piece in defiance of the police state.

So, if able, please consider joining the campaign and getting rewarded with some great perks.

We’ve even unlocked the first stretch goal, so those supporting at the sticker level or higher will already be eligible for EXTRA goodies.

Thank you again, as always, for your generous belief in our work.

In liberty,

Sneak Peek 3 – Voluntaryist Origins V

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

Everything is moving along swimmingly with the Voluntaryist Origins V production process.

I have another SNEAK PEEK to share with you from our inking stage:

The details are filling in quite nicely.

If you want to order past issues, you can do so over at Indyplanet here:

https://indyplanet.com/?s=Voluntaryist

Pho and I recently attended YAL Revolution and we got a little spoiled by having a private meet with the legendary Ron Paul:

He’s still the same guy trying to get people to realize that government is not the solution to their problems.

Looking forward to updating you on the next development for Voluntaryist Origins V!

Pencils finished! On to inking and coloring.

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I hope you are having an AMAZING start to your weekend.

We just finished up all 24 penciled pages for Voluntaryist Origins V and have now moved onto the inking and coloring process.

Everything is going well so far and is on-track for success.

I’ve also been working on the perk designs and have even finished and printed the latest Voluntaryist game card. The new card for Bastiat is quite the beaut! ( ;

In celebration of this, here’s a little sneak peek from the penciled pages:

I am looking forward to updating you when I have the next major development.

In liberty,

P.S. If you want to get yourself past print copies of Voluntaryist, you can do so at: https://indyplanet.com/?s=Voluntaryist

Also, Pho and I will be at Tom Woods 2000th Podcast event in Orlando. Tickets to the main event are free, and this will be one of the BIGGEST gatherings for liberty this year.

Voluntaryist Origins V is a SUCCESS! Next steps. ( :

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

WE DID IT!

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.

Voluntaryist Origins II – Sneak Peek 4

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

Thank you again for your patience as I know we are behind our original estimated delivery date. Rest assured, I am just as excited as you are to finish the comic and get it into your (and my) hands! The colors and letters are still being worked on and I am ensuring that utmost quality control is being exercised based on the great feedback I received on Origins I. I do not want to give you anything that you would not feel good showing off on a display case or to your friends! As always, I seek to continue pushing forward the quality on the comic production, and hope to continue that tradition with Origins II.

On that note, I have another sneak peek for you, this time, a sneak peek of artwork for the card game prototype! This comic campaign has many goodies coming along with it, so there will be quite a few things to unpack when you receive your perks!

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!

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,

Saving Snowden: The Voluntaryists versus the NSA – CAMPAIGN SUCCESS!

Final Thank you

Hello friends!

We did it! What an excellent round of support we have for this issue of Voluntaryist with Saving Snowden: The Voluntaryists versus the NSA. We managed to raise $1,915 – an INCREDIBLE FEAT! With this budget, we should be able to manage the cover + an 8-page storyline – a great number to work with. I promise to make sure the content in this issue is some of the best yet with liberty-minded dialogue, anti-state action, and NSA smashin’!
The funds will be disbursed to me in the next 2 weeks. Afterward, I will be working to update the original narrative to fit the funding size and make sure the outcome is a quality one. The story 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.

As for perks, those who ordered non-comic perks will begin to see those sent out within the next month.

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.

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

I’m feeling extra inspired this round to see how far we can push the envelope on spreading the message of liberty. This will be an issue that can be proudly displayed on stand at comic conventions when I table for the series, and I know it will spark new conversation about what government is doing behind closed doors.

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.
