So here’s an embarrassing video of me talking about myself and Illegal. It’s embarrassing because I am in it.
No, but seriously, if you are unfamiliar with me or my work, I go over who I am and what I’ve done. I also talk about Illegal, it’s stretch goals, and our plans with it. Also there is a lot of thank yous.

Hey all you wonderful people out in internet land!Jeremy here! As my wife is a teacher and headed back to school this week, I had to take this last weekend off to take her and my daughter out to the beach. So, it was not until today that I finally got a chance to sit down and say something very important to you all.THANK YOU!From the bottom of my heart (and speaking for Heather’s heart as well) thank you so much for being so incredibly supportive of this project. We were funded in less than 10 days and we could not be more thrilled. The first volume of Illegal will now be funded and Heather is already hard at work on the first issue.Now, onward and upward! Heather and I got a chance to make some updates to our campaign and get some things that people had been asking for. Here’s what’s new:-NEW TIERS! — There is now an even bigger Princeless tier that includes not only the two volumes of the ongoing series but also the trade paperback of “Princeless: Short Stories Vol 1” and a special sneak preview of “Princeless Book 3: The Pirate Princess” and something I’ve never done before - a copy of an original Princeless script signed and annotated by hand by yours truly. So you get a look into the inside of the making of Princeless. Cool, no?-ADD ON PRIZES — I’ve had several people express the interest in picking up extra copies of Illegal #1 as well as Trade collections of Princeless and Vacant. We’ve also heard some people might be looking to pick up extra copies of the original Illegal Kickstarter Print and the Limited Edition Dogtags. As long as your original order includes these items, you can add additional copies for the new prices listed at the top of our Prize section on the main Kickstarter page. When you up your pledge, just let us know what it’s for in a note and we will add that to the order.-STRETCH GOALS! — Last but far from least, we’ve set up new stretch goals and the first one is nearly hit already! Look in the stretch goal section and you will see that starting with $7,000 we will be making additional issues and new content available to all our backers at the $10 tier and above. For example, if we reach $7,000 everybody will be getting a digital pdf copy of Illegal #2 as soon as it’s ready. And the rewards will keep compounding with every $1,000 we raise.We hope this is enough to incite you to pass the word along to other folks who might be interested or even to up your own pledge if you see new things that you want.! We’ve got 18 more days, let’s make them count!All of my thanks and love,Jeremy Whitley

Comic writer Jeremy Whitley returns to Graphic Policy Radio to discuss his new series Illegal which is currently a part of a Kickstarter project. Illegal is a near future science fiction story about about an America in which the rich live in a lush paradise in and on top of skyscrapers, while the poor literally live in their shadows below. All of the citizens are tracked and monitored by a microchip under their skin from the time they are born and anyone undocumented is sent to deportation camps where few actually survive long enough to be deported. Our heroine, Gianna DelRey is an undocumented immigrant who fled with her mother from an abusive household when she was young. She’s survived by scrubbing floors and allowing her rich employers to treat her like dirt. When one turns on her and she finds herself on the run, Gianna will discover that when everyone is constantly tracked, being able to movie invisibly is something that many will pay a high price for. Will she keep running or will she decide to take a stand? Join us as we talk to Jeremy about this and more! You can take part by calling in with your thoughts, or Tweeting them to us @graphicpolicy.
ICYMI: Here’s me on the internet radio talking about Illegal, Princeless, misrepresentation and under representation in the media, and diversity in comics and other media - a thing which, if you didn’t know, I maintain is important.
Wilderness Peggy Carter Part 2
So here it is the glory that is my Fan Expo Canada 2014 Cosplay! I finished it just before heading on vacation to my cabin so naturally I had to do the costume tests in the middle of the Canadian wilderness. This part is the photo set with bad ass lighting and a very sneaky Agent Carter. Big thanks to the lovely voldemrtsnipple for taking these gorgeous photos!
The sneakiest of agents
You know it!
Just a quick column catching up with one of our faves Jeremy Whitley princelesscomic and the newest project he’s working on. Together with artist Heather Nunnlley imaginetheending, they have created an unique new comic focused on one Gianna Delrey, a young undocumented worker living in an America city in the not too distant future. It’s a place where she lives as a second class citizen—something akin to a crime. Illegal looks to be a sci-fi treat with a very important theme behind it.
Feel free to read the write up in its entirety and be sure to take a look at their new kickstarter campaign—they’ve made a great start but still need pledges! Let’s help make this awesome comic a reality!
5 Page “Illegal #1” Preview! Check out the opening to our story. If you like what you see please support imaginetheending and I on our Kickstarter. We’re getting close to our initial goal, but we need your help to get there!
