Emily exists in a fictional, Republic of Sapphire. This setting acts as a place holder for Middle Eastern countries at war, which allows the story to comment on specific ideas without convolution of intricate politics.
The heart of the story is Emily’s coming of age. Diving into real world politics would have heavily distracted the story from this focus. There are simply too many plot lines of multiple warring factions to be contained within a 28 page comic.
It looks like Chad got off his ass and finally launched my Kickstarter Campaign. Now he goes back to hiding behind his little computer while I do all the work.
I do a lot of heavy lifting on this project. I kick ass, get my ass kicked, and even rip open throats with my bare hands! I do all of this, and then I have to listen to him complain about clicking buttons. How that guy survived this long is beyond me. He gets hand cramps and I get PTSD… what a loser.
Check out my book on Kickstarter. Hopefully it’ll teach you something, or at least make you think a little. If that fails, there’s always good ol’ fashioned violence to fall back on.
After years!? Time really flies… After years of hard work, I was able to hold a print copy of Emily Executioner in my hands!
The work is not over yet, I still need to find new homes for all the hard work put into Emily Executioner. Running a Kickstarter campaign is next on my list of things to do, I hope I can count on your support.

The amazing Dre Thorne was kind enough to create a lil’ Emily Comic strip with me. I’m looking for feedback on this strip, the lettering and the new logo. Please comment, or message me, if you have any critiques.
Dre is open to taking on commissions. You can review other work he has done on his DeviantArt page. You can contact him via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Emily Executioner Kickstarter
We are still moving forward with the campaign, not ready to set a date at this time, but I will definitely post updates leading up to the launch. The best way to support the project right now is to like the Facebook page.

We are toying with the idea of doing a little comic strip with her. I’ll post an update if we can get this to happen.
I’m still finding new things I didn’t know about the Kickstarter/self-publishing process everyday. The latest update is registering for an ISBN. While I am learning a lot, there is the feeling of one step forward and two steps back in the process. I wish I could magically get this book out right now, but it wouldn’t be done right.

Remember that time Emily shot the guy in the face?
You know, when she hit the eye shot.
Still not narrowing it down enough.
Remember… he had a gas mask on?
Hmm… Nope sorry, she killed so many of those… Wait! Oh yeah, that guy! What a tool.
Yeah, he didn’t have a chance.
The very talented Dre Thorne was kind enough to create a Pin-Up of Emily!
