WHAT IS OFFSET?


In the Caribbean island of Bimshire, there exists an underground obeah trade called the Dark Arcs, where magic is sold in exchange for a fee. Due to the nature of this trade, the Dark Arcs is hidden in every corner of society, from the common witch on the street to the glamorous offices of the corporate world, and with every miracle bestowed there is an equally burdensome debt attached.

Offset follows a young man named Kyle Harding who stumbles unto this obeah trade after he encounters a creature called a Shaggy Bear one night. Barely surviving with his life, Kyle is forced down a path where he discovers the history surrounding his family and the massive debt they owe to the Dark Arcs. Along the way, Kyle will face serial killers, dancing wraiths, genies in the form of wooden dolls and many other threats, who are all intent on destroying the Hardings to clear debts of their own.




Armed with only a lowly sugarcane his mother left behind, Kyle must protect his home or face certain oblivion of his mind, body and soul.

Offset is an urban fantasy fused with elements of crime drama and martial arts action films. It draws influences from Harry Potter, Night Watch, the Matrix, Narcos, The Wire, Breaking Bad, The Raid, Tenjou Tenge, Bleach, Rurouni Kenshin, Samurai Champloo and many others. However Offset combines and warps them with Caribbean culture and folklore in a unique entertaining tale.



WHO ARE WE?

My name is Delvin Howell; the creator of the Offset series and the lead illustrator is Tristan Roach. Both of us are part of a Barbadian comic-book publisher called Beyond Publishing Caribbean and Offset is one of our main titles. To date we have published three issues of the Offset comic book and are steadily working on issue #4. However, despite the positive response, we are finding it difficult to release issues quickly enough to satisfy the audience and ourselves. As part time creators we are unable to move any faster than we are now, however with a little help from you guys we might be able to focus on Offset full time!




HERE’S WHERE YOU COME IN
We decided to use Patreon as a platform to get our feet wet with crowdfunding. Interacting with our supporters has always given us joy and we are always thankful for any support you guys give. Often, we are asked, “When is the kickstarter?” “How can we help?” and we haven’t been able to give a solid answer, simply because we wanted to offer a product worth the hype. With Patreon however, we can collaborate with you guys consistently to make something incredibly dope without any risk from either you or us.

HOW WILL THIS WORK?

Monthly updates will arrive from us – always with processes and extras specific to your support level! With more support we can increase how often we update with artwork, videos, tutorials and more. To be ambitious, we hope to grow Offset and go deeper into the island of Bimshire and the dangerous yet magical trade of the Dark Arcs. So please do share your support and spread the word ^_^.


We’ll be creating a steady stream of varied Offset content, character designs, illustrations, comic chapters, some video logs about the lore and other concept stuff. We also plan to have some guest artists on board to create special illustrations from the Offset series – along with processes and/or tutorials as well.

We appreciate any support at any level. Let’s finish what we started ^_^
