Riding a tidal wave of optimism, your new favourite singer is Prime Minister of Great Britain. Events turn even more unlikely when he and his plans for change meet the shapeshifting lizard people that really *are* in charge of the world...

Lizard Men #2 is the second instalment of the critically-acclaimed (we can say that now, right?!) six issue mini-series written by Steven Horry, with art by Catia Fantini, colours by Chiara Bonacini, letters by Ken Reynolds and edited by Mira Manga. It's published by Comichaus. We're still happily shocked by the overwhelmingly positive reaction to issue 1, and can't wait to show you issue 2!Following the events of issue 1, new Prime Minister Dylan Zamani has vanished. Where has he gone, and what happens now?

“...a fantastic elevator pitch of a first issue which introduces us to the oddly likeable Zamani and the weird, supernatural conspiracy he seems to have stumbled headlong into” - Big Comic Page

"Panel after panel of political context and musical evolution sets a depth of vision that immediately snares the reader...Immediately Lizard Men is a compelling read." - Popbollocks

"...a excellent first installment which combines, melodrama, with comedy and science fiction, into something highly enjoyable." - Graphic Policy

Purpose of this Kickstarter

Once again, the main aim of this campaign is to raise the funds to print the comic. It's a pre-order system. All our work is almost complete, so as soon as the campaign is over we’ll be off to see the nice people at Comic Printing UK, they’ll do their thing and we’ll post your copy immediately.

Risks and challenges

The risks are minimal, as the final touches are being made to issue 2 as I type this. Our last Kickstarter campaign was (thankfully) a success, and Comichaus has run a number of successful Kickstarter campaigns over the last year or so. We’re all very experienced with producing comics at multiple levels. We’ve learnt from others and have deliberately kept our rewards sensible and achievable without compromising the production of the remaining issues of the comic.
