What's Going On Here
Hello, I'm Stacy Hummel the artist behind The Acryden graphic novel
The Acryden was created in 2001 by Art Schiskey and myself. It began as a hobby project but quickly grew into something bigger. We never stopped working on it, and 11 years later, our simple story had grown to over 40 unpublished volumes. Unfortunately, it remained tucked away in the closet, even though it was our dream to see the book in print.
But to achieve your dreams you can't hide in the closet forever...
With the aid of this campaign we can realize our dream and see the book in print!
Visit the official website Acryden.com to check out our comic get caught up with the story.
To turn the first volume of The Acryden into a full color 176 page graphic novel.
Our goal is to raise $50,000, with it we can:
- Print the first volume of The Acryden in full color
- Purchase our ISBN numbers and barcodes
- Fulfill all of the cool rewards for this campaign
- Pay credit card/PayPal and other fees for this campaign
- Stock our online store and participating bookstores
- Help promote our book so others can enjoy
- Jump start the printing for the upcoming volumes
What if the goal isn't reached?
If the goal isn't reached we will only be able to print a very limited number of books and there wont be enough to have them available online or in bookstores.
What if the goal is reached?
Success! If we reach the goal we will have enough money to print a larger number of books and can stock our online store and participating bookstores. We will also have enough money to print volume 2 which we will begin working on as soon as the rewards are out.
What if we exceed the goal?
The more we make the more we can do and the more volumes we can print. We have over 40 volumes so that’s a lot of reading! if we raise $600,000 we can print them all!
