Lord Karnage Book 1 is a 76-page hardcover comic book written and drawn by Mark Bussler, creator of Lord Karnage and producer/host of the Classic Game Room video game review show and website.
Plot: Lord Karnage is a super being who lives in the Intergalactic Space Arcade high above Earth and broadcasts the Classic Game Room video game review show with help from friends Wind Squid, Edit-Station 1 and Space Gar. In an attempt to expand their audience, the show is broadcast into deep space after hooking the Space Arcade's antenna up to a fusion powered margarita mixer. Most alien beings celebrate but others are deeply offended when asked to "All Hail Lord Karnage!".
Cosmic Death Bricks from more than 1 billion light years away seek vengeance and attack earth. Our friends fight valiantly but Space Gar is kidnapped and trapped in the Eternal Black Hole Dungeon of Eternity. Wind Squid is damaged, the supply of clone Marks runs low and Edit-Station 1 still can't find any pretzels!!
Will Lord Karnage save the day with space flamethrowers, rainbows and the El Karnage 5000? Can Earth and Classic Game Room be saved?? Does Heyzoos get a chance to host the show? All this and more in Lord Karnage Book 1!
Book 1 contains polished versions of the first 60 comic strips in the Lord Karnage adventure plus an additional 10 pages not available anywhere else and a six page written introduction.
This is a first print, limited edition high quality hardcover comic book with glossy pages and a limited edition dust jacket signed and numbered by Mark Bussler. The dust jacket features an alternate cover design for Kickstarter backers.
Lord Karnage Book 1 is the definitive print edition of Lord Karnage with artwork that has been touched up and enhanced for the final version. Lord Karnage Book 1 is also available as a “Dope Def Definitive Digital” edition, otherwise known as the 4-D edition, which includes the additional pages and refined artwork. Everyone who purchases the print edition will have access to the 4-D edition.
There are a limited number of “read-along" versions available for those who would like to hear artist Mark Bussler read and act out the book and make action sounds. A beeping noise will indicate when it is time to turn the page and enjoy another fun filled sound-effect enhanced reading.
Kickstarter backers can choose to support Lord Karnage in a variety of ways, starting with a thank you on our website for $5 or the $10 “4-D” digital edition. The hardcover comic book with limited edition signed and numbered dust jacket can be purchased for $40 (or $50 with the read-along). There are special tiers with t-shirts and custom artwork available as well.
I hope that you will support Lord Karnage in his attempt to conquer the universe by backing his first comic book filled with action, laughs and space flamethrowers.
