Read my creator-owned comic book, SEASONS (free)

Postby NFShaffer » Mon Sep 19, 2016 4:43 am

Hello everybody, my name is Nandor Fox Shaffer, and I am the creator and writer of SEASONS, a new comic book I'm posting online at seasonsthecomicbook.com. I'm trying to spread the word over the internet and everywhere and anywhere I can. I hope you like it and check it out weekly. New pages will be posted every Monday and Friday. The first five pages are already up!

http://seasonsthecomicbook.com

Here is a description of the book:

"SEASONS is an original, creator-owned comic book drama for readers who want be a part of a deep and serious one year journey that will challenge how they look at themselves, others and the world around them. The story of SEASONS revolves around one character, Fletcher Hart Iiams, a misunderstood, average young man who isn’t happy with life anymore and has run away from almost everything and everyone. The entirety of this series will span over one year of Fletcher’s life as SEASONS is planned to be four separate but interconnected stories that follow the seasons of the year. The title has a two-fold meaning: the seasons of the year and the “seasons” people go through throughout their lives. There will be four limited series stories — Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter — and each storyline deals with a combination of different obstacles, enemies, themes and problematic situations the main character will have to face all set in real time. Fletcher is given a new set of powers with every seasonal transition; as the world changes, so does he. It is an allegorical character study piece ultimately about finding a reason to live in this world that will drag you down with it if you let it."

Please Support My Graphic Novel, SEASONS, on Kickstarter Today!

Hey guys,

My name is Nandor Fox Shaffer, and I’m the creator and writer of the new compelling graphic novel series, SEASONS. The Kickstarter for the first graphic novel volume launched today, and I am so excited about this campaign and what we’ll accomplish with it; namely, finally making a physical and high-quality hardcover graphic novel of the first story. I need $6,500 to print 500 copies of SEASONS Volume 1: Spring, and your support would mean so much. Here is the link to the Kickstarter project page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/306932693/seasons-volume-1-spring/

This is what other creators have to say about SEASONS

“I am really glad you sent [SEASONS] my way. It looks really cool, and I can’t wait to see it unfold. VERY strong start.” 
- Brian Michael Bendis (Modern-day Marvel Comics legend and writer of Ultimate Spider-Man, Secret Invasion, New Avengers, Avengers, Alias, Powers, Daredevil, Uncanny X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, and many, many more)

“You guys are making a strong comic and I love finding new stuff that I'm shocked at when I see the quality. It's rare in the webcomic world. I can't wait to follow what you guys do.”
- Jason Brubaker (highly-successful self-publishing comics creator of reMIND, SITHRAH, and Unnatural Talent)

"With lovingly detailed and textured art in a style not unlike what you might see from a Sean Gordon Murphy or James Harren comic in the stores today, SEASONS asked me to take a breath, to step inside a frame of mind that was all too familiar, and to recall the excitement and angst that comes along with the territory.Beneath the daydreams and obsessions (and the self-torment that must always balance them), I discovered a psychological exploration of the strange and the unknown that reminded me of Twin Peaks, Alan Wake, or Legion, while tugging on thematic threads one might find in Dostoevsky's Notes from Underground. It is very much its own story though, and I can tell it was written because it had to be written. And to me, that means it demands my attention.” 
- Levi Hoffmeier (creator, writer and artist of the beautiful sci-fi space-opera comic series Mayflower)

Don’t know if you should back SEASONS, or are you on the fence about if the story and art are even that good? Those are totally valid concerns (I would have them, too), but that’s why I’ve been posting pages of SEASONS Vol. 1: Spring at seasonsthecomicbook.com since last September, where you can read the series entirely for FREE. And if you like what you see, I hope it evaporates any reservations or doubts if this is the real thing or not. I assure you, it totally is in every respect. Anthony and I are giving all we have to this project. This is a dream project of mine that I’ve been financing and building from the ground up for the past year, and I’d love for you to be a part of it. We have affordable and awesome rewards to choose from, too. So please read SEASONS and please back the Kickstarter campaign today! You will literally change my life!

Thanks so much,
~ N. Fox

!0 Days Left! Kickstarter For My Comic Is 63% Funded

Postby NFShaffer » Tue Jul 04, 2017 5:33 am

Hey guys,

I've been posting here regularly about the Kickstarter campaign for my graphic novel, SEASONS Vol. 1: Spring (hopefully it doesn't seem like I'm spamming the forum haha). If you haven't checked it out yet, I'd ask that you please do. There's only 10 days left (11 including today) and I know we can make the goal. I just really need your help. This is my dream passion project that I've been working on for the past 2-3 years and I've spent over $10,000 just to get it to this point. If the campaign fails, I don't know how much longer I can keep the book going (I haven't made any money off of it). Even $5 will mean a lot, and for just $10, I'll send you a digital copy of the graphic novel. We have way more cool rewards -- a collector's signed edition, getting drawn into the book, receive original art from the series -- so definitely see if there's anything you'd like. And if you can't pledge, sharing it with anyone you know or on social media would be fantastic.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/306932693/seasons-volume-1-spring/description

Your support would mean so much. I honestly cannot do this without you.

Thanks so much!
