https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1915262526/fred-perrys-gold-digger-colorized-part-4/description About Help us colorize the original Black and White Gold Digger series by creator Fred Perry. If you're not familiar with us, my name is Joeming Dunn, and I run Antarctic Press, a small, independent comic company started in 1984. I have personally collected comics of almost every type and genre since 1974, and I can say that during the past 30 years, we have published some of the greatest and best independent comics out there. Our publishing history includes titles like Gold Digger and Ninja High School. The comic industry has changed over the years, so we have started this Kickstarter program to help introduce new projects from our talented group of creators. You may have seen some of our other successful and fulfilled campaigns. Over the years, we have published a number of series. Prominent among these is Fred Perry's ingenious title, Gold Digger, which Fred describes as a mixture of Indiana Jones and Final Fantasy. The idea for Gold Digger was first conceived during Fred's tour of duty in the first Gulf War, and it debuted in Antarctic Press's anthology comic, Mangazine, in 1991. A four-issue miniseries followed in 1992, and a regular monthly black-and-white series followed starting in 1993. The current color series began in 1999 and has continued since then. It is the second-longest-running solo-created title in the industry. In 2013, Fred was honored at Comic Con International in San Diego, where he received an Inkpot Award for his work on Gold Digger. One of our most frequently received fan requests over the years is, "When can I see the original black-and-white series of Gold Digger in color?" Getting a book colored is not an easy proposition due to the cost and time involved, and both of those commodities are scarce in the independent publishing world. But with Kickstarter, it is now possible to achieve that goal. We experimented with a previous Kickstarter (Gold Brick 7), and due to its success, we were able to color the first two issues of the black-and-white series. So back in June of 2016, we ran the first part of this campaign, and we were able to COLORIZE 5 ISSUES. With such encouraging response, we made successive colorizing campaigns. Out of the 50 black-and-white issues, a total of 15 have been colorized thus far. Here is a small sample of what's been done. Below are original and colored pages from Gold Digger #6, colorized thanks to one of our previous Kickstarters. What we would like to do is to continue this process with issue #16 of the series, since the first 15 issues are already funded. Here is a PDF link for Gold Digger #16... http://antarcticpresslibrary.com/gdbw/gdbw16.pdf The money collected will go to paying the colorist to perform the task of coloring. And for each $1200 we collect beyond the first, we will color the next issue. For instance, if we collect a total of $2400 with this campaign, we will then proceed to color issue #14; if we collect at least $3600, we'll have issue #15 colored, and so forth and so on. Supporters will receive the PDFs of each completed issue that is colored, and those in the upper pledge tiers will also get the issues that have already been colorized. Wouldn't you like to see the many great Gold Digger moments in color? Theo versus the Lich King, the first appearance of the Leprechaun mecha, Ace's 747 battle against Dark Bird, Gina and Penny's wedgie war, the first appearance of Ryan, and the epic Time Warp saga are but a few of stories that can be eventually colorized. How we budget the money... $1200 Goal $120 Kickstarter Fees (Kickstarter takes 10% for various fees) $150 for Fred...for all his hard work $130 Administration...to manage and send the PDF's to all the supporters $800 for our esteemed colorists...each issues is from 24 to 30 pages long, so that comes to about $25 to $30 per page for them.
A general question of interest. During ReaperCon, I was one of the lucky participants of Reaper Wolf's RPG sessions that starred this year's four factions. One thing he mentioned was that the individual adventures (one per faction and one mashup, so five total) would be downloadable and available the Friday following the con. Two and a half weeks later, I finally remind myself to download them. But... where are they? I can't seem to find them on the ReaperCon site, if that's where they are. Since several of us forumites participated, I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering this.
