All Voluntaryist Origins IV Perks Shipped! What’s NEXT?

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I am excited to announce that all perks have been shipped!

Voluntaryist Origins IV

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!

In liberty,

-Jack & Pho

Sneak Peek 4 + Special Announcements

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!Production on the comic is moving along smoothly and within schedule.

I am finishing up the last page’s pencils, then I have a batch of pages going in for inks and colors, to be followed by my lettering. I believe the comic should be wrapped within 2 months max, and then it will go to print.

I have all the additional special perks already produced and readied for shipment.

With that in mind – a quick reminder to advertisers again – please make sure you have your finished advertisement pages to me by the end of February.

On that note – here is a another sneak peek of the comic:

I can wiggle a little more time if absolutely needed past that, but I would like to get the comic wrapped and out by the end of Spring at the latest so that we can move on to planning for the next issue. On that note – here is a another sneak peek of the comic:

ALSO! Pho and I have released a new product line, starting with some COOL AR and AK patches and a No Step On Snek Chibi keychain.

The campaign ends this weekend, so if you’d like to get some extra AWESOME merch, hop on in here: https://igg.me/at/phomarket

Thank you so much again for your generous support!

Looking forward to updating you soon on the next Voluntaryist comic development.

Sneak Peek 2 and Reminder for Advertisers

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I hope you’re having an AMAZING start to the new year.

I have another sneak peek for you from the Origins IV comic:

20 pages have been pencilled so far and about half have been colored. The first art print design is complete and another is being worked on.

I also want to remind those who purchased an advertisement perk to send your files over to me by the end of this month (January, 2021).

If you need more time to finish your ad – no worries!

We have plenty of extra time if needed.

Please just let me know if you need more time so I can give you notice of when the print process is nearing for final cutoff.

Thank you again everyone for your generous support!

Looking forward to updating you on the next Voluntaryist Origins IV development.

Sneak Peek 1 and First Shipment Update

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

Hope you are doing well as we approach the new year!

I just shipped out the stickers-only perks today, so those who only got a sticker perk should see their perk within the next week (maybe a little more with Christmas traffic).

I also have a sneak peek for you of the comic WIP. Check it out below:

Looking forward to updating you with another sneak peek in the near future as the comic progresses!

Thank you again for your generous support,

Voluntaryist Origins IV IS A SUCCESS! Next steps…

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

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!

With gratitude,

Voluntaryist Origins III – Sneak Peek 7 + Progress Notes

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I wanted to update you that the Origins III pencils, inks, and letters are complete and they look AMAZING!

I really think this is going to be the best Voluntaryist comic issue yet!

With that good news, I also want to keep you apprised of the fact that we are running SLIGHTLY behind schedule on finishing colors.

Jesse Hansen of Cornerstone Creative Studios takes ownership of this delay and is appreciative of our generous time extension so he can wrap up colors per our agreement.

You can see his public post on that delay here:

Update on Delay

Facebook Link To That Post

SO, with that in mind, I don’t think this will lead to a delay in the delivery window. Things should still wrap up close to on-time if not still as expected.

And to thank you for your trust and support, here is another teaser of the comic:

Looking forward to getting you the digital copy of the comic this month! (And then on to print for 2020!)

Funds have been disbursed and production has begun! WOOHOO!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I am ecstatic to announce that Indiegogo FINALLY processed my campaign and sent out the funds. It was a joy to wake up to and see that we could actually get on to making the comic now.

indiegogo disbursement sent

This morning I sent out the script, character details, and specs to our new comic production team, Cornerstone Creative Studios. Jesse Hansen, the art team lead, has been wonderfully helpful in ensuring that this will be a smooth production process. He’s excited to be working on this title and to bring the quality to the next level.

I will update you every few weeks with teasers/sneak peeks as the pencils, inks, colors, and letters come through.

Thank you again for your patience in waiting on this unusual delay with Indiegogo’s review process.

Let’s make this Voluntaryist issue the best one yet!

The Voluntaryist Origins III Campaign Wraps Up A SUCCESS!

Hello, Voluntaryist Fans!

I am excited to announce that the Voluntaryist Origins III Indiegogo Campaign has ended on unprecedented heights!

campaign close success Voluntaryist origins III

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 onenot twobut THREE BONUS ITEMS!

stretch goals all unlocked voluntaryist origins III

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!

Voluntaryist Tabling Photos from LPF con 2019!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I wanted to share some photos with you from my most recent tabling at the Florida LP convention. I had a great time getting to meet up with liberty-lovers of all kinds including die-hard Voluntaryist fans and new people who hadn’t heard about the series before!

It was encouraging to see so many who are not only passionate about principled liberty, but who also care enough to support creative projects carrying the torch forward.

I am looking forward to seeing what other tabling opportunities I can participate in to grow the Voluntaryist comic fandom!

Thank you again, everyone, for supporting Voluntaryist Origins III. Your support has enabled me to continue expanding Voluntaryist world to new venues!

Cheers in liberty,

Voluntaryist Origins III half-way update! Woohoo!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I just wanted to update you on the progress of the campaign as we have now hit the halfway point with 30 more days to go.

So far, we have raised 55% of goal, sitting at $2,788 raised – which is fantastic progress!

55 percent funded Origins III

In order to finish strong, it will be important that those of you who already have supported share the comic campaign to your social media to help get the word out so we can cross the finish line at 100%!

If you would, please take a moment to share the comic campaign link here:

https://igg.me/at/origins3

to your social media profiles so that Voluntaryist Origins III gets out to new faces, sharing an AWESOME comic story rooted in the principles of liberty.

An aside, I managed to see both Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame this weekend. No spoilers – but I do want to note that both movies left me with a reminder of why I am doing what I am with Voluntaryist.​

While action sequences and special effects improve, character dialogue and philosophical thinking continue to grow thin, leaving much to be desired.

In supporting this series, you’re helping to bring about a new level of intellectual intrigue and an incredible, contemporary discourse on what it means to be truly free.

So thank you so much for your support again in this journey!

I will be keeping you posted on developments and will be making a few more live stream appearances with The Pholosopher to promote the comic and talk about comic culture in general, so be sure to stay tuned for updates on our Facebook page and Website at:
