Welcome to the world of IGNITION where Life’s Too Short To Drive Slow! This debut issue introduces readers to up and coming race car superstar driver Jemele Reid. She couldn’t be higher in her career when one tragic incident changes her life completely, forcing her to decide if she’s willing to risk everything she has left to get back what she’s lost.
The first issue is 28 pages of action-packed poignancy written by Shawn Pryor (CASH & CARRIE, FORCE) and Jenna Lyn Wright (AMBITION). Also, enjoy artwork and lettering by Kelly Guillory (WAYWARD SISTERS). When asked about the origins of IGNITION, writer Shawn Pryor had this to say: “IGNITION is one of the most challenging, creative and dramatic projects that I’ve been a part of to date, and I’m honored that Jenna and Kelly are taking this artistic ride together with me. We hope that you support this project!”
There are numerous reward tiers available for backers, including exclusives only available during the Kickstarter campaign that you don’t want to miss out on! For only $5 you can get the Digital Deluxe PDF of IGNITION #1, which features bonus material including the script and additional artwork. Decide between two Kelly Guillory covers for the low price of $10 for a physical copy of IGNITION #1.
Or make the even tougher decision between four other Kickstarter exclusive variant covers for $15 each, featuring the amazing artistic talents of George Kambadais (BLACK GHOST, THE DOUBLE LIFE OF MIRANDA TURNER), Shae Beagle (MOONSTRUCK), Luiz Ferrarezzi and Jhenne Tyler. These exclusive covers come with an assortment of goodies including posters and magnets. Plus you can pledge at higher reward tier levels to get bumper stickers, tees, and other bundles.
The project needs to reach $5,500 by March 27, 2020, at 11:43 AM EDT. Show your support by checking out the Kickstarter here.
