Ken Krekeler Seeks Funding via Kickstarter to Publish His Upcoming Comic Series "Westward # 7"

A steampunk-mystery comic series, Westward follows the ongoing themes of individual achievement and the essence of human happiness.


Detroit, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2014 -- The latest title from Kinetic Press, Westward is a new steampunk mystery comic from writer/illustrator Ken Krekeler, author of Dry Spell and The Colodin Project. The story is told over the course of 10 issues, played against a Victorian/Deco background of corporate espionage and technological revolution.

Westward has received consistently positive media reviews and Kickstarter support; crowd-funding is a great way to make connections and get the word out on independent comic titles like this one. Westward #7 is listed in the February issue of Previews (under Tool Publications) and will be distributed through Diamond in April of 2014. 

Depending on pre-order sales, the cost of publishing a limited print run for each issue of Westward is typically between $1500 and $3000. Issue #7 will feature a black-and-white cover, which will help keep printing costs affordable. There will also be a few hundred dollars in shipping costs... and, of course, producing and shipping of the Kickstarter Rewards.

The goal of this campaign is to secure funding for printing, shipping and distribution of Westward #7.

This project will only be funded if at least$2,000 is pledged by Thu, Mar 20 2014 8:57 PM +05:30.
