SO, JUST TO SUMMARIZE SOME AMAZING THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN GOING DOWN:

  • Nero O’Reilly and I have a 20-page kaiju murder mystery story in New World, the talent-packed new colonization-themed sci-fi/fantasy comic anthology coming out from Iron Circus (y’know, the publisher who put out Smut Peddler/Sleep of Reason/Poorcraft/basically every dope Kickstarted comic thing).
  • AS OF TONIGHT, the New World Kickstarter has already zoomed past $35,000! IT IS AN IMMENSELY POPULAR KICKSTARTER, and there are still 18 days to go!
  • This means that the final book is going to look SO DOPE. Picture this: alternate cover by Benjamin Dewey, the Tooth & Claw artist? Hardcover option available? This book is going to be like the Rolls Royce of anthologies. AND THERE ARE MORE STRETCH GOALS TO COME.
  • It also means that we get PAID EVEN BETTER than the already super reasonable amount of not coupons, not ExposureBucks, but real-life spendable meat dollars we were already getting paid! Awesome!

I’m gonna warn you right off the bat: our comic is weird. We collaborated on it for everything– from script to pencils to inks, even inking different parts of the pages! Plus we basically poured our love of monster movies into into this sucker WHILE ATTEMPTING TO ALSO COMMENT ON HOW MESSED UP OF AN EFFECT THAT OVERPOWERED FOREIGN INTERESTS CAN HAVE ON A REBUILDING NATION. Even without reading it on that level, though, it’s cute and fun.

This story WILL NOT be coming out in any other weird little mini, compilation or whatever from us, so IF YOU WANT TO PRE-ORDER IT and get some of this rad action for yourself (as well as 340 pages of awesome comics by other talented creators, naturally), visit the Kickstarter here:

IF YOU’VE GOT SEVENTY-FIVE MINUTES TO BLOW: You might remember Nero and I hooting and hollering last September about moving across the country! Well, we took a whole bunch of videos that we took on that trip and edited the best bits together into a super huge road trip documentary. Join us as we travel three thousand miles across America, getting into all sorts of shenanigans along the way! Have a watch, and come join us!
