As you may or may not know, I'm a stay-at-home dad. About a year ago my wife and I decided that, instead of enrolling our son into daycare we opted for me to quit my job so our son could be raised by his parents instead of someone else. This decision was also made on the idea that I would have more time to work on my comic book Flying Fortress.
Thankfully, all of these plans have worked out. I spend everyday with my son, getting to watch him grow up right in front of me. Not a lot of parents get to spend their whole day with their kids, so I count myself as one of the lucky ones. I'm also able to spend more time drawing my comic book. Flying Fortress is taking up all of the free time that I have when I'm not chasing Elliott around the living room.
There's one flaw in all of this planning. One flaw that is something you can help correct. You see, the creative team of Flying Fortress is trying desperately to get more comics finished and out the door for people to read and enjoy. The big obstacle in the way, is money. Now, I can draw the comic book for free... I already do that. I've not been paid to draw any page of this comic, nor will I. That's not what this is about. What it is about is that we need help getting these books printed. Thanks to IndieGoGo, we've started a campaign to get that done. Our goal is to raise $1,943 in order to cover printing comics and trade paperback collections. It also helps us create merchandise like buttons, shirts, stickers, and bomber jackets to name a few.
It's pretty simple to contribute. All you need to do is go to our campaign page and select a reward you would like. It's basically a down payment on future products coming soon from our humble little studio. Say if you want to buy the trade paperback. Select the $25 dollar option and you're done. You've pre-ordered the book. You pay up front to make sure you help get yours and other books printed and you get a copy of the book in return. All the rewards work like this. So help support us today by either contributing or telling your friends and family. Every little bit helps. Thank you!
