Emily Executioner is a 28 page action comic about an assassin who refuses to kill her target. Emily is an orphan raised by the Contractors, a private military company, who trains her to become their greatest asset. The Contractors want to sustain conflict in the region to maintain the profits. Emily freezes up when she is ordered to murder the daughter of a problematic political figure, becoming the enemy of the same people who she once knew as family.
The Kickstarter successfully wrapped up June 1st of 2018. A big thank you to all who backed the book and brought it to life. It was a great experience!
Running a Kickstarter campaign is a unique experience. I am grateful for all of the support it received. Without the pre-sales, it is hard for self-publishers to determine not only print runs, but costs associated with production.
Thanks to Alfonso at Studiocomix Press. This Kitchener ON based printer specializes in comics and is very helpful with new indie creators such as myself.
We had a fun book launch. Thanks to Lee at Bridge City Comics for hosting! Emily had some constructive criticism for me. It is inspiring to get so much support from comic fans for this small indie title.
