About this project

 

 

 

Hi everyone! I'm Rohan, creator of the comic series 'Blokkan'.

Blokkan is a bright, action-packed comedy series about robot adventures!

I'm launching this kickstarter to print a graphic novel called 'Blokkan: Robot Stories', which will combine all the Blokkan comics into one enormous, full-colour graphic novel.

 

 

 Here’s what you’ll get:  

  • 150 full-colour pages of robot action, comedy and adventure! 
  • 3 giant story arcs across 5 comics! 
  • A digital PDF version.

Contains the issues:

  • Robot Story
  • You Are Inside A Gun, Part 1
  • You Are Inside A Gun, Part 2
  • Welcome To Palm Cove, Part 1
  • Welcome To Palm Cove, Part 2

 

In the world of Blokkan, robots are everywhere. Some of them are even superheroes! These stories follow three robot protagonists (and occasionally their human friends) in three inter-connected arcs.

 I'm just finishing up the latest arc, 'Welcome To Palm Cove', in which a former super hero struggles with his new life as a cigarette machine, going through an identity crisis which lands him in some hot water... pursued by the law and a shady tobacco company, he's fighting not only for his life but also his own identity!  

 It's always been a dream of mine to publish a graphic novel, and now I've got enough content to make that happen. It's been a huge learning experience and a delight to create this world of lovable robots and crazy action!   

With this kickstarter I can put the entire Blokkan saga into your hands. I'm also offering postcards, prints, and even original artwork at higher tiers. Join me in the world of Blokkan and make cool robot friends!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

        

 

 When I was a kid I drew fan comics about the Space Quest video game series (of course I had my own IPs as well!) Any comics I drew had a common thread - adventure! I grew up on Asterix, Tin Tin, Calvin & Hobbes, and those little comics in Disney Adventures magazine (ugh, can't believe I sold all those at a garage sale!) 

Through art school I diverted into painting for a while, but eventually I was seduced by the more direct storytelling of comics once again - and here we are! Comics are hard but they're super satisfying. I'm always learning new things and getting inspired by amazing comic/manga artists and writers. 

Risks and challenges

This is the first big printing project I've done, and I'm aware that there's a learning curve. I'm confident that I can deliver a professional quality book - I've already got some proofs and they look awesome!

I have set the delivery date to near the end of the year because I have to finish 'Welcome to Palm Cove, Part 2'. But that leaves me with a pretty generous window; the clean lines and the flat colours are already done!

Lastly, I know that postage costs and packaging can catch people by surprise - I've accounted for that in my budget and the value of the book.
