A Brand New Series (kind-of)...
While Warcorns: Combat Unicorns for Hire is an entirely new series, their debut in this issue is directly tied to the already successful comic book series; Franklin and Ghost. If you are unfamiliar with Franklin and Ghost, feel free to exit this campaign, educate yourself, and return when you are intellectually and emotionally ready to proceed. Or, I guess, you can just read the synopsis of Franklin and Ghost below...
Franklin and Ghost Synopsis:
In a last-ditch effort to see more of the universe before accepting their inevitably boring lives as miners on their home planet Defilion, Franklin and Ghost steal a ship and head out for one last adventure.
When they accidentally crash to Earth, they seek shelter in the bodies of a couple unsuspecting hosts. Hell bent on having a good time, Franklin and Ghost team up for the rage-filled quest of a lifetime. But if they aren’t careful, they may leave a bloody trail of breadcrumbs easily followed by those who would seek to destroy them for disobeying interplanetary protocol.
Warcorns: Combat Unicorns for Hire Synopsis:
Warcorns picks up between Franklin and Ghost Volumes two and three.
After having successfully evaded two complete dispatches of Retrieval Bots from Defilion, Franklin and Ghost are sent by their female accomplice, Delilah, to retrieve a rare weapon that is instrumental to the destruction of Defilion.
Warcorns Special Forces Group Alpha is dispatched, at the behest of General Erich Badguey, to intercept Franklin and Ghost and return them to Defilion dead or alive.
There are a few different variant covers available through this campaign. They are highlighted below!

What do I want you to get out of this book?
Fun, bro. So many people are obsessed with creating the "next great comic book" that most of them forget to let their readers have a good time. If you are familiar with me as a creator, or with any of my projects, you know that I put an enjoyable reading experience above all else.
I want people to love my characters. I want them to bond with them. I want them to hate them. I just want you to feel SOMETHING for them. But mostly, above everything, I want you to walk away from reading one of my books saying "Dude, what the fuck did I just read?".
I'm pretty sure this book is guaranteed to garner that response.
We have gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure this book is completed on time. We know that a common complaint among backers is that projects take longer than projected to be completed.
Before even launching this campaign, we made sure to have the entire book completely drawn and inked. This ensures that over the next two weeks that this campaign is running, the colorist has time to complete the colors and have the book ready for letters. By setting responsible and realistic benchmarks for production, we've made sure we present an easily accomplish-able completion and delivery timeline.
