Pulp Girls: PRINCE-S STARthief

$10,456

PULP GIRLS: Prince-S STARthief is an all new comic book creation from a collection of pulp and genre inspired concepts with kick-ass female leads created by me and featuring different amazing artists. This title, Prince-S STARthief, features the incredibly gorgeous artwork of Celor in his first full production comic book work.

Prince-S STARthief is a blend of some familiar inspirations to create a full throttle science fiction adventure comic all its own. This first issue will show who Prince-S is - the black sheep of intergalactic corporate royalty, what she does - steals crazy space $#!%, and how she does it - with super cool sci-fi tech (like her black hole powered Dark Sword). All while giving Celor a chance to showcase his amazing talents with an action-packed dip into this expansive new universe of fun.

STRETCH GOALS: We've been made a staff pick, we've made our initial $6,000 goal, with two weeks left we have plenty of time to do more!!

  Help us make the book bigger and better! Take a look at what we have planned if we keep the funding going - more PRINCE-S for you!!!

$7,500 / UN-LOCKED 8/23!!

  • Upgrade / Everyone wins - lets add more pages and get you even more for your money! When this goal is reached, we'll add 4 more pages to the "director's cut" edition (every reward $10 and up), with even more bonus content! Cool!

$10,000 / UN-LOCKED 9/4!!

  • Bonus Upgrade / Everyone wins again - we'd really like to get the books printed in a high quality format, so now we can. And the books you receive will all be upgraded to a softer heavier cover stock, with crisper shinier interiors. Nice!

$12,750 / LOCKED  

  • Double Upgrade / Everyone wins again, much much more - if we make it this far every book will now contain not 24, but 48 pages of story! That's a whole lot more PRINCE-S STARthief action... in fact it's double the sexy space pirate goodness!!! Wowza!

THE STORY:

An all new SCI-FI comic book BLAST from writer Jason Martin (Super Real, 80s Undead, Zombie Tramp) and artist Huseyin Celal Koc (a.k.a. Celor)!

It’s the future and society has become enslaved by massive corporations. These corporations have in turn become warring Monarchies that have spread into the galaxy oppressing everything in their path to fuel their power. Our protagonist, the daughter to the powerful PEP-C corporation, instead of following through with her arranged marriage, rebels and wields the large resources of the monarchy to f@$# around, stir up trouble, and have a good time.

From her own personal Starcraft carrier - stocked with a fleet of ships, mechs, and weaponry at her disposal – she slips through corporate fingers to steal and stockpile the galaxies' most lethal tech. She is PRINCE-S STARthief!

It's Star Wars meets Tomb Raider by way of Aeon Flux!

 Your pledges will help us complete the first issue of this series, and offer you the first book, in an extended special edition as a reward. 

The special Kickstarter over-sized 36 page first issue will include: a 24 page story plus an extensive behind-the-scenes (and exclusive to Kickstarter) "director's cut" supplemental material section - featuring character designs, script to page art process breakdowns, pinups* and more.

Featuring a regular cover by Celor, as well as variant covers by Celor, and Dan Mendoza (Zombie Tramp)!

*Pinups will include works from many amazing artists and friends - stay tuned for more info on those!

All artwork you see above are actual panels and pages from the comic (and the PRINCE-S using her dark sword)!

_____

All funding goes toward the creation of this comic, and the fulfillment of this Kickstarter.

This is only the first issue in a planned Prince-S STARthief series from us that we'd absolutely love to continue, so your support here will help us bring these stories to life! If funded, we plan to eventually release the book to a larger audience, but Kickstarter will be the only place to get the first book with these amazing covers and bonus materials. Making the Kickstarter editions a special enhanced collectible version just for our backers, available to you long before others will have a chance to see the book.

If our funding exceeds our goal we will offer some stretch upgrades and use funding to move straight into the next issue.

We can't thank you enough for your time, and appreciate any help sharing the word about our book!

PINUPS

We have a few amazing pinups lined up from some incredibly talented folks for the Kickstarter. These will be included in the “director’s cut” editions that you get with every print reward (and the full PDF option).

We'll be sharing these here over the coming week...

Risks and challenges

The first comic story is fully written, and artwork of the first half is fully completed. Your funding simply helps us complete the work, and get a little something for our efforts.

So the risk is low, with the biggest potential setback being the schedule for finishing the issue for your rewards. That being said, we have given ourselves plenty of time to be able to hit our commitments.

Also, I know how to make and release comics.
I'm a 10 year veteran of the industry and have created many comics, collaborated with many creators, and produced and distributed many of them myself.
And I've also taken part in a funded Kickstarter before.

I currently run the mature readers imprint for Action Lab Comics, Danger Zone, as well as co-write Zombie Tramp, and write the upcoming series, Vampblade.
