There are rewards for pledges starting at $1 (B&W Silent Edition PDF of Issue 5, a look at Scott's pencils before the final process, plus all access to any Kickstarter exclusive updates) all the way up to $1,000 (original artwork, trade paperback cover, TPB, PDFs, bust drawings, prints and more).

Scott’s art has been published by several newspapers and magazines in California, including the “Inland Empire Weekly” and “Culture” magazine. His career also includes doing interior art, cover work and pin up work.

Scott took a 10-year hiatus at age 20 from creating art to pursue another childhood dream -- professional wrestling. His successful career included touring the world and gaining much popularity and notoriety on the independent scene. He helped create and co-found the famous Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. After ending his wrestling career on his own terms, Scott decided it was time to hang up the tights and return to drawing them.

About “The 2nd Shift”

John Hopper works long, thankless hours at "FishWorld" (a SeaWorld-like theme park based in San Diego). Even with his assistant manager position, he's forced to share a three-bedroom apartment with his friends/teammates Sarah, Eddie and Anne. The dregs of 9-5 gigs and the mundane existence of day-to-day life is only half the battle, as the real battle occurs in the streets of San Diego. Slinging comics or boomerangs? Dicing onions or criminals? Busing tables or busting heads? Solving math or murders? All of the above. It’s going to be a long day.

The Characters:

1. John Hopper (“Lightshower”): 23, though quite capable as the team’s leader, he's often prone to questioning his in the field decision-making. Powers: Ability to transfer, manipulate and control energy

2. Anne Shepard (“Focus”): 19, highly motivated and brilliant college student. Enjoys the crime solving rather than crime fighting aspects of her team’s activities. Powers: Hyper-intellect and flight.

3. Sarah Bautista (“Spree”): 25, seemingly always hustling to find work, she's currently waitressing. She is the older sister of Eddie. Lifelong martial artist. Power: Superhuman speed only in her upper extremities.

4. Eddie Bautista (“Switch”): 18, Works at a comic store while drawing his soon to be published comic. He's an over the top pro wrestling fan , movie buff and food lover! Younger brother to Sarah. Power: Shapeshifter
