Voluntaryist Origins VI Sneak Peek Update 3 + ANTISTATE

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

Hope you are doing well this October.

I have all good news to share as we have fully completed the colors and lettering for the Origins VI standalone issue and all final advertisement placements have come in.

That said, we are still diligently working on the rest of the project goals, from remastering Origins I and II to the additional art pieces that come with perk packages.

On that note of additional art pieces, one of the artists for those pieces is Aimée McLernon.

Aimée McLernon is an incredibly talented, multi-media artist and graphic designer whose professionalism and unique style places her as one of my favorite artists of all time.

She also happens to be one of the ad sponsors of this issue and, with that, is offering her creative talents for your illustration needs, from comic art to graphic design, to even 2D animation!

So, if you’re looking for someone to help you create a logo, put together a beautiful flier, or conceptualize a character for your own comic project, give her services a look.

She comes personally recommended as I can attest to her skills and professionalism from my own work with her on Voluntaryist.

And see for yourself her beautiful portfolio. Plus, she also has her own comic book series you can scope out called Reality Hackers – a psychological thriller of the cyberpunk genre.

Looking forward to updating you next month on the latest Voluntaryist Origins progress!

Voluntaryist Origins VI is a success! Next steps.

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

We did it!

The 10th Anniversary Voluntaryist campaign is a complete success with both hitting goal and unlocking 3 stretch goals!

This means that all physical perk backers will be getting a bonus sticker for hitting goal and those at the print comic tier and above will also be getting the bonus character sheet, bonus game card, and Voluntaryist team art print on top.

To thank you for going above and beyond for this issue, I am going to go ahead and unlock the 4th stretch goal bonus and add that to your perk packages as my way of saying, Thank you!” for giving me this opportunity to take the Origins story and put it into a start-to-finish remastered read. So that will add on another Voluntaryist art print and a die cut sticker to your perk packages at the print comic tier and higher.

I could not have made it this far if it was not for your generous support and trust in building out the Voluntaryist universe.

That said, there are some important details for you to be aware of so that everything goes smoothly as I work toward creating the comics and fulfilling the perks.

I will be working incrementally on the comic sequentials, starting with issue VI. I have already completed over a dozen pencil pages for issue VI, but we still need to finish the rest of the issue and then lay the inks, colors, and letters.

As I am working incrementally, issue VI will be finished first before the Origins I and II remasters.

I plan on shipping out the issue VI perks as soon as that issue and the associated perks are ready.

This means that those who got the trade paperback or the I-VI single issue set will get their perks later when the remasters and new covers are complete.

I estimate that the issue VI perks could be finished by the end of 2022 to early 2023.

The trade paperback will likely take until closer to the estimated delivery date in late 2023 because it involves both remastering issues 1 and 2 and adding more pages to give extra lettering space.

I will be making updates at least once per month through the Indiegogo page and in parallel on the http://volcomic.com Website.

So, if you are ever wondering what’s going on with the development, please be sure to check with either site so you can get the latest progression update.

I will also give everyone a heads-up update message whenever I plan to do shipment.

Please be sure to update your address if you have moved or plan to move by the time shipping is to take place.

You can log into the Indiegogo dashboard for this campaign and update your address there for us. You can also e-mail me at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com if you have any trouble logging in with the email you used for your perk purchase.

You can read the Indiegogo FAQ for more helpful information:

https://support.indiegogo.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002383767-Backer-FAQ

If you are an advertiser, please get in touch with me at least a week before the end of August, 2022, so that we can go over your ad to make sure it’s fit for print. I sent all advertisers an e-mail detailing the format with the comic book template attached for respective single and double-page ads. If you did not get this, check your spam box. If it’s not there, please message me at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com so that I can make sure you have the needed sizing specs and template for your ad.

For those who chose the “donation” option on Indiegogo (which really should be labelled “gift” because we’re not a charitable organization), you will not be getting a perk. You can tell that this was selected if you did not get a prompt for putting in your shipping information when you checked out (minus the digital early release which has no shipping). If you did this in error, but would like to get a perk, please let me know what tier you supported with by emailing me at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com and I will invoice you for the shipping to get your shipment address.

This is going to be a wild ride getting this project done, but I have never been more thankful and excited because this finished compendium is going to make Voluntaryist a serious competitor in the alt comics world with having the Origins story in a completed format I can readily showcase for convention tabling.

Cheers to us in helping be the change we want to see, especially with the direction mainstream comics have taken these past few years.

You are AWESOME!

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,

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!

Voluntaryist Origins II – Sneak Peek 3

Hello Voluntaryist fans!

I am excited to share with you sneak peek No. 3 for Voluntaryist Origins II!

Everything is looking good so far with quality control on the comic production.

However, we do have a comic production push-back due to our primary artist getting sick for several weeks, so our estimated delivery date is going to likely be after October as we are still working on page completion.

There is nothing to worry about though! Our publishing group, Short Fuse Media Group, LLC, has a strong reputation they stand by: “WE ALWAYS DELIVER!” We are confident in their ability to deliver the final art as they have in the past and, as always, we will be sure that all perks are delivered directly to you.

I am also preparing the final touches on the costume for Voluncap so that The Pholosopher can do her cosplay shoot. She’s especially excited as it also going to be her Halloween costume this year.

Please stay tuned here and at http://www.volcomic.com as I will continue to post teasers and updates as the colors and letters come through so you can see the production progress.

Looking forward to getting this issue into your hands as soon as possible!

Voluntaryist Origins II Success! Next Steps On Production!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

We did it!

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!

finished campaign voluntaryist origins II

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!

Voluntaryist Origins – Early Digital Release Sent Out

Hello from J at Voluntaryist – The Comic Series!

I am excited to announce the Indiegogo supporter early digital release of Voluntaryist Origins! I know we’re a little behind schedule, but I think it was worth the wait as I added on an extra page to production, making this a full-length comic book with 24 interior comic art pages.

THE EARLY RELEASE SUPPORTER DOWNLOAD LINK HAS BEEN SENT TO DIRECTLY TO YOUR E-MAIL IF YOU WERE A SUPPORTER.

This is the first time the Voluntaryist story is being presented from the beginning of the canon, with the chronology to follow from here on out in future issues.

The physical perks are being ordered now and the digital files are being sent off to the printer. The printer will then be shipping the comic books to me and then I will be shipping out the physical comics to those who ordered them.

Those who wish to pick up a physical copy outside of the campaign will be able to do so at Indyplanet.com. I will share the link on the Indiegogo.com campaign when available.

If you have any thoughts, questions, or last-minute changes of address, please make sure to contact me at mr.voluntary{at}gmail.com or by submitting the change of address form through Indiegogo directly on the comic campaign.

Thank you so much for helping to bring the Voluntaryist comic to life! I couldn’t have made it this far without your years of support which have allowed me to flesh out the details of the comic story and characters and refine production so that each issue is even better than the last.

Looking forward to bringing the message of liberty to the comic world with you!

Sincerely,
