Hello, Voluntaryist Fans!
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, but THREE 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!

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!

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!
Looking forward to sharing the next update with you revealing a color sneak peek.

Hello Voluntaryist fans!
I wanted to let you know that most all Voluntaryist perk orders have been shipped. You should see your perk in the mail come this week or next if in the U.S. If outside the U.S., within the month.
If you would, share a photo of your comic arrival with us on our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/volcomics/
It feels good to know that you got your perks and I love showing off the comic treasure!
In the process of working through the orders, I noticed that there were a couple of you who only did a donation, i.e., did not select a perk.
1.) Contributed toward the campaign with a printed comic perk amount.
2.) Made an error and did not select a perk. (Donation only.)
3.) And would like to get the comic perk you could have selected, then:
Please message me at mr.voluntary[at]gmail.com using the e-mail you made your contribution with for the campaign. I will fulfill the comic perk you would have received if you accidentally selected “donation” instead of “perk.” E-mail me with your campaign order name and mailing address by November 10th to be counted. I cannot process anything beyond this Friday, November 10th.
AGAIN – Thank you so much everyone for helping to make this issue the best yet!
I am proud to say that Voluntaryist Origins is the canon origins story I had hoped to start with from the beginning. While the past issues were a lot of fun and were important to flesh out the future of the series, I needed the groundwork laid, and this issue is IT!
From here on out, I will be working to continue the chronology, so please stay tuned on the Facebook page and on the website: http://volcomic.com, to find out when the next comic campaign launches to continue the story for part 2.
I cannot wait to share what Voluntaryist adventure unfolds next!
