About Reagan Lodge

WYIT is about a boy marked for death, a rogue soldier, and finding friendship in a dark world. 



Set in a Dieselpunk-Fantasy age of myth and machinery, the story of WYIT is a bit like if you took the anthropomorphic style of Disney’s Robin Hood and the brotherhood story of Terminator II, set in the aeronautic world of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.

Currently WYIT is in the inking stage, and the end page count will be approximately 180-190 fully-colored pages. The book will be launched on Indiegogo to crowdfund the final stages of production as a high-quality printed graphic novel.



Most of you know me from my various comics or world-building projects over the years, such as FLIGHT ComicsAvatar: The Last Airbender, and my collaborations with the artist Jennadelle. 

WYIT originally started off as a therapeutic hobby to occupy myself with while recovering from a dark period in life in the years after the Marine Corps. Eventually it took on a life of its own, leading to a world and characters I fell in love with, and I think you might too. If you're a fan of PG-rated two-fisted adventure like Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Rocketeer, you'll probably find something to enjoy in WYIT.



SO WHY PATREON?

I've been funding this book's production mostly out of my own capital; driving a delivery truck, Craigslist hustling, selling art originals, a few gracious KoFi donations and support from my livestream audiences.

But not everyone's an art collector, uses KoFi or watches livestreams. Multiple people have suggested I set up a Patreon for this reason, even just a basic one as a monthly tip-jar to offset business expenses... And fund my prodigious coffee consumption.

So, for starters I'm keeping this Patreon cozy-simple and focusing on making WYIT. In time I might add some more tiers and exclusive perks, so long as they don't take time away from finishing the book, which is what you all want in the first place!

Finishing WYIT is my #1 priority, but I've got some cool ideas for Patrons-only content that should work within my production schedule. We'll take it one step at a time.

Stay tuned, and thank you for your support.



FAQ

"Will this be a webcomic?"
Right now there's no plans for a webcomic or digital release. This story is intended to be a physical printed book.

"What age group is this suitable for?"
WYIT is PG-rated, so probably ages 8 and up. It's an adventure dealing with intense depictions of good and evil, but will have no profanity, or explicit violence/sexual content. It's the story I wish I had as a kid, but it's serious enough that adults will love it too.

"Okay cool, WHERE CAN I BUY IT?!"
I'm working on it!! The book is still in progress. Once I get enough done, I'll be launching a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to fund its printing, shipping, and future projects.
