Sneak Peek 5 – Voluntaryist Origins V

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

We are drawing CLOSE to completion of the Voluntaryist Origins V design process.

The first draft of letters is complete and the review + wrap on page arrangement is approaching shortly.

Here’s another sneak peek for you from the process:

That said, if you have moved or are planning to move soon, please UPDATE your address before we close update opportunities to prepare for printing and later shipment.

You can do so through the Indiegogo dashboard.

Once the comic wraps for print submission, the digital copy will be sent out to backers.

You’ll be seeing something in your e-mail VERY SOON. ( ;

That all said, Pho and I have a CRITICAL project we are working on that could really use your support.

Our latest song, DISOBEY, is currently funding for the music video production part on Indiegogo here:

https://igg.me/at/disobey

This is a sequel song to MASK ORDER which has nearly 100,000 views on YouTube alone.

See: 

We want to make this music video BIGGER, and BETTER than Mask Order and, to do that, we need the resources to be able to get more props, hire actors, and afford set help.

We’ve been pretty successful so far as you can see:

But that present success doesn’t have to be the end of the story.

With your additional support, we can increase our production quality and accomplish more hard-hitting shots that are guaranteed to make people think about how much the government has ruined our lives these past 2 years.

So, if you have not already, please consider heading over to the campaign here:

https://igg.me/at/disobey

to help us reach our next goal.

We’re almost to the second STRETCH GOAL:

Which will allow us to make another provocative art piece to send to backers at the art print tier or higher. It’s an art piece that is sure to turn heads and will be used for online promotion to rally the culture against the lockdowns, shutdowns, and mandates.

So THANK YOU to everyone who has supported the comic AND the music video’s creation and promotion.

You’re stepping up to turn the culture against the totalitarian police state.

Looking forward to the next update which will be the one letting you know that the comic has been sent out digitally to backers and to the printer’s.

Thank you for taking a stand with us!

In liberty,

-Jack & Pho

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!

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.

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!

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 – Digital Comic E-mailed Out!

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I am ecstatic to announce that the digital version of Voluntaryist Origins III is finally complete! Woohoo!

First page sneak peek preview:

First Page Sneak

Please be sure to check the e-mail you used for this campaign for a message from me with the digital download link inside. I think you’re really going to be impressed!

With the digital of Origins III complete, I ordered the print copy of the comics which are being shipped to me to combine with all the other perk goodies and bonus items you’re getting. I’m thrilled to be able to put your perk packages together and am looking forward to shipping each one of your perks out.

The comics should be shipping to you by March 2020. I will be making an announcement a few weeks before shipping, reminding everyone to update their mailing address if anything has changed since you placed your perk order. If you know that you’ll have a new address, please feel free to go ahead and update it right away if you know what it will be.

ALSO! I want to make ANOTHER exciting announcement:

Voluntaryist – The Comic Series will now be on SubscribeStar!

SubscribeStar is a platform like Patreon that allows for ongoing support of creators with special behind-the-scenes access and perks for support.

What this means is that, for future comic production, I will be continuing the Voluntaryist story on a rolling basis with new pages coming out each month instead of just doing a campaign once per year.

I will still be using Indiegogo to do special comic fulfillment fundraisers/events, but the ongoing support will come through SubscribeStar and you will be able to see the comic production as pencils, inks, letters, and colors come through.

What I hope to see is that, with your support, the Voluntaryist comic adventure can be something you get to look forward to each month and, eventually, each week.

Please check out the SubscribeStar page here: https://www.subscribestar.com/voluntaryist

and consider joining for the ongoing adventure!

I’m looking forward to updating you next when the print comics arrive!

Thank you again everyone for your continued support and fandom for Voluntaryist!

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

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.

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.

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.
