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.
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.
Backer rewards include the issue itself (obvs), the chance to catch up with the story so far, a PDF art book, copies of the Comichaus anthology, the popular sketch options, the chance to cameo in issue 4 and the chance to commission a full-on piece of art at a discounted rate.
If you wish to add any of the following to your order, please add the amount specified to your pledge!
SH! PDF art book - £1
Lizard Men Issues 1 & 2 commentaries - £2
Any single issue of Lizard Men (PDF) - £1
Any single issue of Lizard Men (Print) - £4
We'll confirm the details of your add-on with you when the campaign is over.

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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
