    The story:

    “We plan to fully fund the production via support from Kickstarter backers,” Whalen said. “The funds will be divided appropriately over the major areas of production common to comic creation, and along the way we’ll offer some exclusive and exciting rewards as a thank you to our supporters like T-shirts, three unique Funko Pops, enamel pins and more.”

    All backers will have their names featured in the books and dependent on the tier level have their likeness featured within the comics.
