This is a special one-week campaign designed to provide work for Will Caligan, a military veteran, a Christian, and a comic artist who was swarmed by SJWs and lost his publishing arrangement due to his willingness to stand up for his beliefs about right and wrong. All of the funds raised will go to paying for the production of one or more comics illustrated by Will that will be published by Arkhaven. The graphic novel – or novels – will be based on novels chosen by the backers that have been contributed by various authors, and comics legend Chuck Dixon will be providing the initial adapted script for free. A Gold-rate team of colorists, Arklight Studios, will provide the colors for the cover at a steep discount.

For more details about Will’s story, please read the article written by Megan Fox at PJ Media.  Will is a Desert Storm veteran and Airborne Counterintelligence Agent who attained the rank of Specialist. Here are several examples of Will’s work. To see more of them, please visit his Artstation page.

The authors who have granted permission to utilize their graphic novel rights for this project are: Nick Cole (The End of the World as We Knew It), Peter Grant (Rocky Mountain Retribution) , Lawdog (The Lawdog Files), Rolf Nelson (The Stars Came Back), Kai Wai Cheah (Flashpoint: Titan), Rawle Nyanzi (Sword and Flower), and John C. Wright (Swan Knight’s Son). The choice of the novel to be adapted will be made by the backers in an email poll.

The precise size of the graphic novel will depend upon the novel adapted, but it is expected to be around 132 pages. Will Caligan’s comic will be published in a series of 22-page comics and as a single graphic novel, in black-and-white format with a full color cover. A color interior is one of the stretch goals. Below is an example of the coloring done by the Arklight Studios team for an Alt★Hero cover.

50 percent of the revenues derived from any subsequent sales of the comics and graphics novels will go to Will and the direct contributors to producing the comic.

    I was very glad to contribute to this fund-raiser. Good luck Will.All the best from a Canadian supporter.

  • Cetera

    Godspeed, Mr. Caligan. Deus Vult!

      Deus Vult!

  • jeffystorvensen

    Just to clarify – it’s $50 for paperback, $100 for hardcover, and then $250 for both of those plus individual issues. I’d like to back for $250, especially if that’s the only way to get the individual issues, but how many floppy comics are included for the extra $100?

    • Vox Day

      It depends upon which source material is chosen, but most likely 5 or 6 “floppy comics”. Except our 24-page issues are not floppy, they are mini-trade paperbacks.

      • jeffystorvensen

        $250 is only .025btc now, so it’s more affordable than ever

  • Mike S. Miller

    OORAH!

  • ThaddeusWS

    The cover of alt*hero looks good.

  • luckymarty

    Does the Iron Star reward tier now include both books, and the third if (when) it’s reached?

  • 1337kestrel

    Is there an add-on for Paperback #3 coming?

  • Chance Boudreaux

    Conservatives and free speech advocates really need to step up here and not allow Crybullies to de-platform conservative voices.

  • Man of the Atom

    WOOT! 18 comics! Well done, contributors!
