Crowdfunding campaign launches to complete 110 page Graphic Novel
"Disparity" is a 110 page character driven Graphic Novel incorporating drama, action and romance.
Bendigo, Victoria, Australia - A new Kickstarter campaign is seeking to fund the graphic novel, “Disparity” written by Ben Singleton. Disparity is the story of James, a man pushed out of the company that he started, with a number of lingering questions. When he's offered the answers, he jumps at the chance. But the people answering the questions don't necessarily have his best interests at heart.
The campaign is seeking to raise $4,971 by March 19.
The creation of Disparity began almost 2 years ago. In the original conceptual phase, it was initially to be an epic ongoing saga set in a post-apocalyptic future. While there's still some traces of that which are teased in upcoming volumes, the story has evolved into a character driven story that incorporates drama, action and romance. "In a way, I'd envision this as actually being a prequel to the story that I originally wanted to tell." Singleton said, "I had a premise for the original story, but when I sat down to ask myself how the world came to be exactly where it was, I found a more compelling story in how the fallout between 2 friends changed everything."
The script has already been completed for this volume, and the story and layouts weigh in at around 15,000 words.
The project has truly taken on an international flavor. The artist for this project, Ari Syahrazad, was hand-picked from a list of over 60 possible artists. Based in Indonesia, he has completed the concept work and is currently inking the novel. The project Colorist, Jose Expósito, originates from Spain and thus far has perfectly captured the essence and style of the work.
The remaining work on the project and the focus of the Kickstarter campaign is the inking, coloring, lettering and printing. The artist is contracted for 3-5 pages per week with artwork to be completed by October. The colorist is anticipating a similar timeline to completion. Once each of these elements is complete, the novel will go to print, allowing for a fourth quarter 2016 delivery of the final product.
The campaign is offering several rewards for backers. At the $10 level, backers can get a digital copy of the completed Graphic Novel, as well as a wallpaper for their computer. Their name will also appear in the rear of the book on the thank you page. A $35 pledge gets backers a hand signed hard cover copy of the graphic novel. At the $95 level, backers can get a hand signed copy of the hard cover book, as well as a display case designed and manufactured by Focal Point Design. See pictures in description. Additional backer levels combine a multitude of gifts for the donor.
