About this project

The third dynasty of the Japanese Galactic Empire has collapsed and in it's wake has come civil war. Rival warlords battle for control of the space lanes, while corporate entities collide with military factions for control of the planets. Other empires engage, hoping to fill the vacuum with their own rule, while remaining territories are locked in feudal warfare. The result has been religious, political and economic turmoil. It is the golden age of space piracy. Starships, blasters and steel are the law now. To the remote outposts of deep space, to the bustling imperial space lanes these pirates honor one code and one code only: "Take what you can and full speed ahead" One such pirate is Takeo

Born into the Japanese nobility, he was once sworn to the service of the emperor. As a samurai, he became a master of the sword. As a squadron commander, he was one of the empire's greatest fighter pilots.

Years ago he was banished and dishonored.

He and his companions grind out an existence of smuggling, piracy, and various forms of "entrepreneurial" enterprise.

First mate on Takeo's ship is Sy-Ren. Adventurous by nature and proven many times in battle, she is also cunning and ruthless...especially when there is a prize to be had. Passionate and playful at times, she is however a true adherent to the code...and business always comes before pleasure.

Takeo's most fiercely loyal companion is Yoshi. A gentle giant unless provoked. However once the battle rage is upon him he is a savage, unstoppable, killing machine. 

The mysterious Lady Grace seems to be behind much of the havoc that befalls Takeo and his companions. Her motives remain hidden as she plots from the shadows...

A chaotic cast of characters from space cops to imperial samurai, fortune seeking mercenaries to disgruntled space orcs, a warrior race of gators and rival pirate crews are just a few of the challenges Takeo and his cohorts must face - and that's just in issue #2!

Risks and challenges

Space Pirate Takeo issue #2 "Into the Pandemonium" will be our 4th comic book that we have produced/printed so we are familiar with what needs to be done from the production end of things. Space Pirate Takeo issue #2 "Into the Pandemonium" is 90% ready to be printed. Obviously some of the packages that we have offered will need to be completed before going to press but this thing is very close to being ready for launch so we are very comfortable with the ship date we have promised.

Space Pirate Takeo is first and foremost a labor of love for us and in many ways a homage to all that we hold dear in comics, sci -fi, movies, music, art and life...as well as a ripping good yarn full of action, adventure, heroics and villainy. Thank you so much for your support!

One of the greatest rewards that we can offer is a chance to be in on the Space Pirate Takeo franchise at the ground level. We have envisioned a great empire for our space samurai pirate hero including a card game that is under production, an animated series, toys, computer games - really the galaxy is the limit. All the funds that we have asked for on this project ($1,000) will be used for printing 1,000 copies of Space Pirate Takeo as well as shipping and production costs. All funds raised over our goal will be used to further the Space Pirate Takeo card game project already under production, development of issue #3 of Space Pirate Takeo and production of our ultimate goal of producing the Space Pirate Takeo animated series.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

A special thanks to our friends and families for your unwavering support!
