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...

Following the - quite literally - explosive conclusion to issue 2, the story resumes! We're super-proud of this one. By the end of the issue we've hit the halfway point with what I *think* is an utterly ridiculous cliffhanger. Hurrah! So once again we're coming back to Kickstarter to raise funds to get issue 3 printed. 

THE COVER!
THE COVER!

Lizard Men is 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. Issue 1 was recently included in Bleeding Cool's 15 Things To Pick Up At MCM Comic Con London 2018, which we're absurdly proud of still. MCM London was a month or so back now, but FEAR NOT! You can get issues 1-3 as part of this campaign.

PAGES 4 & 5

 Some nice things people have said about Lizard Men:

"Immediately Lizard Men is a compelling read" - Popbollocks

"Every single person in this book deserves a career - and the odds are they will get it" - Bleeding Cool

"...from the strength of the two issues so far, it’s hard to see how this couldn’t get bigger and better in the next four issues" - Comics Anonymous

"A fantastic elevator pitch of a first issue" - Big Comic Page

Risks and challenges

The comic is completely finished and ready to go, so we don't anticipate any major risks or challenges for completion. This is our third collective Kickstarter campaign, plus the various members of the team have run a number of Kickstarters between them. We've kept our target low to be realistic and have kept our rewards sensible and achievable without compromising the production of the remaining issues of the comic.
