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:

Looking forward to more good things and a successful second half of the comic campaign!

We have NEW Voluntaryist superhero tees, action figures, game cards, art cards, and MUCH MORE!

We’ve taken steps to ensure that this comic campaign runs smoothly by hiring a new local art team and adjusting delivery times so we can handle any unexpected delays from third parties.

So you can support with confidence!

Even if you don’t have pocket change to spare, you can share the campaign link or promo video to your social media to help get the word out. This both boosts our visibility on Indiegogo in reaching out to new people and informs others about the comic’s launch.

THE ORIGINS II COMICS HAVE SHIPPED!

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!

With gratitude,

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

WOOHOO! The rest of the Origins II comics have arrived!

This morning I shipped out what I could from what I had been given in the first box from Ka-Blam. Now that I have the rest, I will be fulfilling the remainder of the orders.

Most everyone should receive their comic perks within 2 weeks, many within the next week. 

Please be on the lookout and feel free to share your perk package opening with us on social media!

It’s been a LONG journey but lots of fun with goods things to come.

I have also just received the cover for Origins III and have been working diligently to ensure that everything will be smooth on this next upcoming campaign.

I will be waiting to launch the campaign until these perks are shipped to ensure that everyone is happy and confident in our work. The campaign is tentatively scheduled for March 30th, so please stop by www.volcomic.com and www.facebook.com/volcomics to see what is taking place at that time.

I also have been working on some new perks that will hopefully excite you, including a new Voluntaryist tee. You can take a look at the work-in-progress:

Thank you again for your kindness, support, and understanding.

I hope that when you open the perk packages it gives you a HUGE SMILE when you see the extras I added in to thank you for your patience. ( :

Action Figure Line Sneak Peek

***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.

I think you’ll be enjoying them too!

Voluntaryist Origins II Mini Update! Sneak Peek Origins III

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

I wanted to give you a quick update on what’s taking place with comic production.

I have received the comic game cards in hand and now am just waiting on the print copies of the comic.

game cards

I was told by Ka-Blam that they are arranging my comic and that it should go out for print soon!

Once that is finished, the comics will then come to me and I will make a last call for updating addresses before shipping them out. If you want to update your address now, please do so by e-mailing me at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com.

I also have here a little sneak peek of the cover mockup for Origins III:

The Origins III campaign will be launching likely on March 30th after everyone has gotten their perks shipped.

Voluntaryist Origins II – Digital Comic Sent Out!

digital comic sent out voluntaryist origins II

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

It is with great excitement that I can announce the comic design process has been completed!

So with that, I present to you the Voluntaryist Origins II comic in digital form. The download link should have been sent to your e-mail. If you did not receive it and were supposed to, please contact me right away at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com. I want to make sure you get it.  ( :

Thank you so much, everyone, for your extraordinary patience and kind support as I know it was frustrating to have to wait longer than expected for our estimated delivery.

Now that the digital process has come to a close, I have ordered the physical copies of the comic and game cards. The turnaround time for that depends on how fast Ka-Blam can get the comics to me, which is usually contingent on convention traffic. Fortunately, this isn’t convention season, so I expect a little faster processing time, though they gave me a “by-or-before March 1st.”

Once I do get the printed comics, I will update everyone and ask that anyone who has changed addresses to let me know of your new address so I can be sure to get your perks to you.

I’m looking forward to personally compiling and signing off on each of your perk packages, and cannot wait for you to show off the cool extras I’m throwing in.

Because this took extra time, I am going to wait to launch my next campaign until I have shipped out these perks. I want everyone to be confident in the work and the successful completion first before asking for your trust again on the next comic issue.

And, you can believe this: I have worked extra hard to ensure that, going forward, there will be even smoother, higher-quality output. You’ll get to see it especially when the next teasers come out for the continuing Origins story campaign.

As always, if you have any questions, thoughts, or concerns, I’m here for you and will make myself available to speak with you concerning anything on the comic process and delivery. You can reach me at mr.voluntary(at)gmail(dot)com.

I hope you enjoy this issue as much as I did in bringing it to life.

Looking forward to more comic culture in liberty,

Voluntaryist Origins II Sneak Peek 9 + Critical Update

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

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.

In liberty and with humble appreciation,

Hello, Voluntaryist fans!

Thank you so much again for your patience in the adjusted delivery timeline for Voluntaryist Origins II!

Here is another sneak peek to hold you over until I receive my next update from Short Fuse:

Also, I wanted to share with you a music video I produced with The Pholosopher called “AnCap Grind.” Voluntaryist character “Voluncap” makes a guest appearance in cosplay, so I think you will enjoy that visual treat. Video here:

Voluntaryist Origins Perks Shipped – Special Note

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.

If you:

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!
