Please fill out your SURVEY!
over 1 year ago – Wed, Jul 13, 2022 at 08:40:29 AM

Hi Masters,

We still have around 100 backers that have not responded to their survey. We are going to extend the lock date till Sunday, July 17th*, but on that date, we will LOCK orders and get them over to Barry at Ka-Blam for fulfillment. PLEASE, fill out your survey ASAP so we can get the Masters #1 into everyone's hands. If you need help with your survey, please email me at [email protected]

*after July 17th, there may be a delay in getting your books

Please note, we will only lock orders for Masters #1 and not for the Trades as they won't be shipping till after ALL campaigns for single books have completed. We also have not charged postage to those with Trades. That will happen when the time comes for them to ship.

One week till we lock orders!
over 1 year ago – Wed, Jul 06, 2022 at 10:38:27 PM

The last day to make final updates to your order is Tuesday, July 12th. After this date, we will lock your reward selections and  charge cards for add-on item purchases, pledge upgrades, and pre-orders.  You can update your shipping address up until we lock addresses for  shipping. And you can also grab some cool add-ons, like Posters, Action Figures, etc.

If you haven’t answered your survey by July 12th, you can still answer your BackerKit survey or pay for extra shipping after the deadline order due date, we’ll still receive your information but your  shipment may be delayed.

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can  return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or  requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit  project page at


Thank you all again for being so responsive to answering our  BackerKit survey—even though it may not seem like much as an individual  backer, you have no idea how tremendously helpful this has been for me  when trying to keep track of all 567 of you!

Thanks everyone for your support!


The Masters Issue 1 is at THE PRINTER!!!!!!!
over 1 year ago – Wed, Jul 06, 2022 at 03:43:28 PM

Finally after close to 2 years since conception, the first issue of my first self-published comic series, "The Masters" went to the printer.

It's been quite the Odyssey, and I am so grateful to my family, friends, collaborators, advisors, supporters, and backers who have made this possible.

I wish to thank everyone who supported the Kickstarter campaign, and to let you know you can purchase some ADD-ONS now when filling out your survey.

Great items like POSTERS and ACTION FIGURES and so much MORE!  So BACKERS keep an eye on your email Inbox!

If you missed the campaign, NOW is the time to get in your PRE-ORDER!  Please visit our store.  Link listed below in the first comment section. HERE:

In addition, The Masters Issue #1 will be available at two retail chains: Graham Crackers Comics (all 12 locations) AND Dream land Comics & Vinyl in Libertyville, Illinois.  Keep checking back with Power Comics, Inc. for dates of artist appearances!

Below are some pictures of some friends with me AND the samples I received from the printer.  Enjoy and thanks again for everybody's support!

Peace, Love, AND The Masters!

Today is the day. We will send out a smoke test of surveys first, and once we see that is working, we will send out the rest. They will be coming from Backerkit, so keep an eye out.

This survey will collect postage for your rewards and also give you a chance to add-on other rewards you may have missed. Make sure you look at all that's available and grab the items you may have missed or did not have the money for the first time: posters, autographs, more comics and trades, and ACTION FIGURES! It's a splendid chance to get some cool swag.

Please Fill Out Your Survey ASAP!

We want to get the order into Ka-Blam as soon as possible, so we are putting a two-week limit on getting surveys in. On July 12th, we will lock addresses and send all we have over to Barry at Ka-Blam. This does not mean yours will be delayed, but we can't guarantee if they will go out at the same time as those we have received by the 12th.

Next Kickstarter

Once we have shipped the Master Issue #1, we will announce the next Kickstarter.
