***A special aside announcement from the Origins II production.***
Hello, Voluntaryist fans!
I just got word that Short Fuse Media Group, LLC. owner and director Sean Mack has gotten a batch of action figures for their new Indieverse Unlimited Action Figure Line. As you can see, Voluntaryist – The Comic Series is among them! So I am excited that they have been successful in their prototyping process so that we may offer you, in the near future, high-quality next-level Voluntaryist action figures! I am grateful to Sean for the opportunity to be a part of the process and look forward to more good things.
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.
I am ecstatic to announce that Voluntaryist Origins II closed at a record-breaking $5,544 supported by 119 backers, making this issue the highest funded, most received, longest, and most successful Voluntaryist comic to date! Thank you for your generous time and support in not only backing the campaign, but also being a true fan by continually sharing the campaign promo images and links to new faces online!
Now that the campaign is closed, the chain of production is beginning, and I will keep you in the loop with updates and teasers along the way.
Once Indiegogo releases the funds to me within 1-2 weeks, I will be working with our publishing group, Short Fuse Media, to format the layout for production. The comic will then go into a pencils review process over the course of 1-2 months, with inks, colors, and lettering to follow over the next 1-2 months.
Those who ordered physical, non-comic perks will receive those first. If you ordered a physical comic perk, you will receive whatever you ordered as a bundle once the comic production is complete. Check the completion date estimations on the Indiegogo campaign page for your respective order: https://bit.ly/2Iz5YpY
I will be sending out an e-mail message directly to give all backers their BONUS ITEMS, which includes ALL PAST DIGITAL VOLUNTARYIST ISSUES, The Liberty Force digital comic by Johnny Adams, and a digital copy of Heroes Ignited by Short Fuse Media Group. Please be on the lookout for that e-mail from mr.voluntary[at]gmail.com.
Make sure to check and ensure that your e-mail and shipping address are correct. If anything changes over time, you are able to update that information on Indiegogo by signing in to your order. I will send a campaign reminder 1 week before shipment to ensure that anyone who has moved can update their address before I send out physical comic perks.
If for any reason you made a mistake and forgot to select a perk, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I care about all supporters and want to make sure that no one made a mistake by not selecting a perk. So please double-check and make sure you selected a perk for your respective pledge, and send me a message if you didn’t select your perk by accident so I can update your order.
I’m looking forward to making this the best Voluntaryist issue ever, and I know I can because of you! So thank you for believing in me and the series and helping to bring Voluntaryist – The Comic Series, to life!
Hello friends! I am excited to announce that the next Voluntaryist comic campaign is now live! Saving Snowden: The Voluntaryists versus The NSA is the next issue out and it’s bringing to light the intensive global government spying perpetrated by the prying NSA.
