What is Sequility?
At a certain stage, almost every comic artist comes to a point where they want to share their work on the web. The question is then: how?
Our goal is to create Sequility, a community and platform for publishing comics is a clean, professional gallery fit for professionals as well as those new to publishing their work on the web. Your artist space will be ad-free, customizable and designed to be a professional front for your work.
The best way to raise money? Get together with talented artists and show the world the way we want Sequility to work; bringing amazing comics to you in a way that compensates artists fairly for their work.

These look kind of familiar...
That's because all of this work was featured in a gallery show in downtown Savannah called The Underground Comix Show!
With these artists we have just completed a successful gallery showing at Ashmore Gallery, over 500 people came to check out the work and support us. However, we realized that there is a much larger audience out in the world who couldn't make it to the show, and now we are making available to you the awesome opportunity to support the budding professional carreers of 17 young artists and the idea we all stand behind to create a place for all artists to showcase their work.
What We Need (and what you get out of it)
Like all development projects, there are many cost hurdles that need to be covered before a stable, finished product can be made available to everyone.
- We still have a long way to go. The show did well to cover costs of the original printing and the gallery space, but we need more funds available for future projects such as:
- A second gallery show where we expand the number of artists to more incredible talent
- The ability to print more comics and make them available locally and through the web
- Covering the costs to go to the upcoming HeroesCON and other conventions
- Server costs and equipment to test and develop the site further as we move into the Beta stage and prepare for a full release.
If you back us, you don't just get the fuzzy feeling of being part of something incredible (even though that's pretty great). You get tangible, beautiful proof of what your impact is achieving.
There are a variety of contributor perks that you can see on the left. We already have a large amount of minicomics printed, and all pages and covers are available for high-quality 11x17" prints.
Furthermore, we are offering custom drawing perks for a one-of-a-kind keepsake.
All of the comics are available on higher tiers as PDFs for offline viewing on a computer or tablet. They are higher DPI than the online versions and look extremely pretty on a Retina (high DPI display) device.
All backers will have access to the Sequility development blog and future vlogs.
Artists: All backers will have an opportunity to be a part of the early closed beta, if you are interested in trying out Sequility before the general public a contribution of any amount will put your name on the list.
Finally, if you like Sequility one facebook you will recieve the secret code-word. If you paste that code word in the form at check-out, we will send you a free bonus gift!
We believe that by offering limited edition comics, prints and illustrations at a good price, we can help you help us help us all. Here's exactly where your money will be going:
20% of each sale will be used as funds for Sequility and future shows/printings and events
4% will go to IndieGoGo
~5% will go to shipping
and 71% will go directly to the artist who created the work. The artists are the primary reason that this is possible, and unlike the mainstream comic industry they should recieve the bulk of the revenue to support them in making future work.
Other Ways You Can Help
Any time you spend sharing this page with IndieGoGo's included share functions is highly appreciated. Telling your friends and family about the project is the best way to help fund us after you've made your contribution.
Please feel free to link to the show on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and in meatspace. 100% of our exposure will come from word-of-mouth, so your help is essential.
Your contribution is valuable in realizing the dream to offer every artist the chance to have their comics find a home on the web that enhances the reading experience without ads or clutter. We are sincerely grateful that you took the time to read our story (and our comics) and hope that you contribute to our efforts and become a part of our vision.
REMEMBER: After you have made your selection send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name on your IndieGoGo account, and the Title and Artist Name for the comic(s) that you want us to send to you. They will arrive after the end of the campaign.
