Today is launch day for The Crusader #1 (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inkspotcomics/the-crusader-1).

We're pushing the big green button on our Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing and distribution of the first issue of our new series, as well as art prints, t-shirts, and trading card sets. Yes, trading card sets. The 90's have returned to comics.

Michael and I are really excited about getting this book out to readers. It's everything we know and love about comics as only we can do it, and while Inkspot Comics has had some small success before with stories appearing in both Grayhaven Press and Fifth Dimension Comics anthologies and the release of our digital-only series The Assembly (http://comics.drivethrustuff.com/product/115763/The-Assembly--01) on DriveThruComics, this is our first series done our way under the Inkspot banner, and our first book to (hopefully) go to print.

Hope you dig it.

Day 1: 8 backers, $345/3000

A big thank you to everyone who's helped spread the word about our little book so far!

We're going strong, but I want to get us up to 20% by tomorrow morning. So, once we hit $1000, we'll publish the fifth page of our preview, and we'll keep posting the next page for every $1000 we raise.

PUBLIC CONFESSIONS

We are initiating an internet-wide Q&A about The Crusader #1, Inkspot Comics, and anything else you'd like to ask us. Reach us through Facebook, G-Mail, Kickstarter, Penciljack, Digital Webbing, and Twitter.

Also, during the Q&A, anyone who backs us on Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inkspotcomics/the-crusader-1) will receive a digital copy of The Assembly #1 (http://comics.drivethrustuff.com/product/115763/The-Assembly---01?filters=0_41065_0_44532). If you like comics about aliens, wizards, vampires, vampire hunters, vikings, and middle-eastern fire demons, it's the only one that has them all.

Is it just me or are all the images showing as negatives? Even on the Kickstarter page.

Uh oh. That could be a problem.

But, … I just checked everything and it's all displaying fine. Hmm, …

Edit: Swapped all the images out. Are they still negatives?

Some of the awesome art Michael Bushman put together. This time for the print.

It will be 11x14 and look great on your wall.

Thanks to the generosity of our 11 backers The Crusader #1 (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inkspotcomics/the-crusader-1) has raised $395 towards our $3000 goal. We're making progress but we still need more people to check us out and #JoinTheCrusade.

If you like TMNT, 60's Marvel, and supporting independent creators, check us out!

And a better look at the art for the shirt. Any guesses on the homage?

A Place To Hang Your Cape (http://ap2hyc.com/?p=11838) featured The Crusader! I talk about my inspirations and making a superhero out of a priest.

A little behind the scenes on the preview pages we've unlocked so far.

When we get to $1000, we'll show off Page 5, and we'll unlock a new page for every $1000 we raise of our $3000 goal. We've been hovering at $400 for a few days now, and we still have a long ways to go before we've got enough to print and ship all the awesome stuff we've got planned. Not to mention our first issue!

Yeah, still. All your images are negative except for one. Looks like you're uploading CMYK versions of them. When you export your images using Photoshop, you should use the web option.

Good luck with your campaign!
