Leaping into your headspace yet again, let’s talk to some creators about their current crowdfunding efforts. Most importantly, if it sounds like something you would vibe with… BACK IT.

http://kck.st/2PEkimf

, THE COMIC CORNER: March 12 Edition, The Indie Comix Dispatch

Aaron: Welcome! I like to start off pretending that nobody knows who you

are. So, here is your chance, tell us all about yourself.

Travis: I have been working in comics off and on for 20 years. I have been blessed to work on books of my own creation such as Voodoo Nations, Broke Down And Four Dead Bodies and Cthulhu Invades Oz. However, i have also done work for The Pit, Night Wolf, Omni, and a few other amazing books. I am blessed to have a wonderful wife with two awesome daughters and son. I am proud to be part of the Indie comics community.

Aaron: Tell everybody a bit about your project “Broke Down and Four Dead

Bodies”, give us the elevator pitch!

Travis: Broke Down And Four Dead Bodies is about 2 guys who break down on the side of the road. They are caught in a massive revenge plot that leads them on the wrong side of a barrell. Lots of Guns!! Lots of Violence and lots of F’words. 

Aaron: What were the influences on this story?

Travis: I am a huge crime comic and movie fan. However, i wanted to do one closer to the movies that i like. Pulp Fiction, Way of The Gun, Reservoir Dogs. I wanted to bring that dark humor and gritty crime to the comic book world.

Aaron: What is your creative process like?

Travis: The process for me is very personal. I map out the whole book issue by issue and then I build on it. For this book, I wanted to create a character profile piece of each of the characters. So each issue is about really 1 character and how they tie into the greater tapestry of the Broke Down universe. This book is about me creating a universe that tells these great stories and builds on these characters and what makes them tick. 

Aaron: What are your plans for the future of this story and/or series?

Travis: This kind of wraps it up in a big oversized 40-page ending. This is the end of it all and i can’t wait to share it with the world. I do have some surprises for the TRADE but you will have to wait and see.

Aaron: What is your favorite reward item for this campaign?

Travis: I mean the book itself is enough its the end!!! Everyone loves a good ending!! We have a great cover for issue #4 . We have the artist and colorist from SCOUT’s GRIT on there. We are also re-releasing ISSUE 1 in a very special way. The first edition was just floppy with not a great cover. So, we are doing 2 more covers for issue 1 that are special editions with very cool UV coating!!

Aaron: Thank you so much for taking the time to answer these questions. I hope

you have much success and continue to deliver great comic books.


CRIT 0-3

, THE COMIC CORNER: March 12 Edition, The Indie Comix Dispatch

Aaron: Welcome! I like to start off pretending that nobody knows who you are. So, here is your chance, tell us all about yourself.

Chris: Hey I am the creator of CRIT and owner of Homebrewed Heroes. I have been an avid comic collector since I was 4 years old, and have wanted to create my own stories since. 

Aaron: Tell everybody a bit about your project “CRIT Issues 0-3”, give us the elevator pitch!

Chris: CRIT is an action packed story of discovery about a group of friends that have gained mysterious abilities and grapple with choices that test whether or not they can call themselves heroes. 

Aaron: Your art is beautiful! Who are your artistic influences?

Chris: my artistic influences are Jim Lee, David Finch, and Paco Medina 

Aaron: What is your creative process like?

Chris: well it all begins on the table. We get together once a month and play our game. It’s dnd 5th edition that’s been completely Homebrewed for a modern super hero setting. I record the sessions and then story board them out. Then Terreyl (who plays bolder) and Brad (Who plays caliber) help me set dialog. We keep it as close to the game as possible but as with any medium transition there is always edits from the original but the book emulates the game as much as it can

Aaron: What are your plans for the future of this story and/or series?

Chris: We will be doing 36 books for CRIT and then we will move on to something else. We have a sci fi book planned and a book set in king Arthur’s time all in the same universe and exploring the history of the Nulls (immune to abilities), Gede (raw ethereal beings) and ethereal powered beings (humans that have been altered by ethereal energy). 

Aaron: What is your favorite reward item for this campaign?

Chris: My favorite reward is the posters because I can’t wait to hang the cover of issue 3 on my wall. My favorite stretch goal is the raw original issue 0 that started it all. If we hit 60 backers I am going to print it but only for this campaign. And I’ll never print it again.  

Aaron: Thank you so much for taking the time to answer these questions. I hope you have much success and continue to deliver great comic books.
