1.) Spread the word- The main objective of Bayan Knights is to collect and promote promising and exciting characters that we hope will shape the future of local comics here in the
2.) Donate- 200 pesos and get a free copy. This is for an industry that we say we love, if you really feel this way then I guarantee that this act of selfless charity is the right way to go. How much is a single well-known comicbook today? Just imagine giving some random kid or a relative a copy of Spiderman or Superman. That’s all it will take for you to make a difference. This way you will leave a lasting mark, for your name will be printed inside the first issue along with other heroes so that your voice and our voice will be heard. (All donations outside the country does not entitle them for free shipping.)
3.) Pledges- Pledges is the term for creators or anyone who will entrust us with their 1,000 pesos each just to make this happen. It is not mandatory - each creator believes that it is a small price to make their dreams a reality. I personally can say this is true since I’ve spent just to make my dream of publishing my own titles, and frankly, it isn’t cheap. In return you will be a part of us. You will get extra access on the development of our projects.
4.) COMMISSIONS- This offer is only on my personal behalf. Every commission I get, I will take part of that and place it automatically for this cause. I’ll either put that to “Bayan Knights” or “Free comics drive” So the ones who commission me automatically help out with no extra charges. So by giving me work, that, in return, is translated into kindness. No free copy here for the client though.
5.) PRE-ORDER- This is for retailers, school organizations or just people who loves comics and wants to order in advance and in bulk. The good thing here is the discount. You can ask your friends to buy the issue as a team.
6.) COMMIT your OC- If you have an original character that you think will make a difference, you can commit to us. They will still be yours, our only job to make the OCs legit by putting them on print, to promote thus helping you get momentum with your own title. We are not going to print your books, we’ll just showcase your characters and hope it will generate a lot of interest to the reading public.
Lastly what’s in it for me?
To be quite frank, there is really nothing much in it for me. Nothing but the sheer satisfaction that I am doing something for the comics industry. I’ll be doing a lot free chores in this project, but I’ll be doing them with great people around me. So what happens if we succeed in this gigantic endeavor? Well, be ready for more exciting surprises coming your way. All I am asking you now is simple. Think deep and consider us. Act now, be a BAYAN KNIGHT and we‘ll do the rest.
