A new steampunk comic series about two time travelers from the year 1875. Discovery, adventure, and robots are on the horizon!
Agatha Frsiky is a new comic series I've developed with my girlfriend Kate Carleton. It incorporates elements of the steampunk, alternate history and science fiction genres, along with a large sense of humor, to give a unique comic experience. Try to think of it as The Time Machine meets Futurama.
The story for Agatha Frisky revolves around Edison Wells and Elizabeth Carrol: two time travelers from the year 1875 who become the world's only hope for survival. Edison is a retired athlete who seeks new excitement in his life, and strives to be the world's next great adventurer. Elizabeth, a genius inventer and engineer, buids the time machine that allows her and Edison to travel through time. They visit new time periods, adapt to different societies, fight off a robot uprising, and gain clues to the truth about mankind's future along the way.
I have laid the groundwork for an ongoing comic series, and with Kate's artwork I feel we have something special to show you guys. We want to release this first issue as a preview of what's to come. It will contain the first chapter of the story. After that, we are releasing the next four chapters in a graphic novel. All of the money we gain from this Kickstarter campaign will go towards funding the 28-page preview issue.
We want to print enough copies of this issue to sell at a good number of conventions in 2012. We're planning on hitting up the con circuit next year at least twice as hard as we did in 2011, which means we'll need a lot of copies! We also need to print promotional items like banners, posters, stickers, fliers, etc to really help get the word out about our comic. We need a little help with these costs, and that's where YOU GUYS come in!
We've thought up some cool rewards for you guys if you decide to back our project. So please take a moment to look things over! Every dollar counts, so don't hesitate to help us out in any way you can. And if you have any questions, just ask us! Thanks for checking out our project!
Shipping costs within the United States are included. However, if you are from outside the US, please send me a quick message telling me where you are located so I can give you a more accurate shipping cost to include in your pledge. Thanks!
Right now, we have 5 pages of the comic completed. Our goal is to have it done in December, and ship everything out at the beginning of 2012. We will keep you updated on the progress of the comic on this Kickstarter and at www.naughtybicycle.com
