About this project
Would you kill to save your life?
Would you murder to save your soul?
Would you commit obscene acts of brutality and evil to ensure you didn’t burn in hell?
These are the questions facing two mismatched detectives hunting a prophecy obsessed serial killer through a post-apocalyptic future.
This is Last Exit To Brighton.
A 130-page graphic novel from Mad Robot Comics - this Absolute Edition includes -
- The remastered 80-page Last Exit to Brighton.
- The 7 page Robo-Nazis of Hove preview story.
- The 8 page The Gulls short story.
- 8 newly illustrated chapter headings.
- A brand new Edward Bentley cover.
- Unseen Project development art/character designs/promotional images.
This is Last Exit To Brighton presented in the hand painted full watercolour art as originally conceived by artist Edward Bentley. The previous print version was only available in black and white - so artist supreme Edward has taken this opportunity to enhance his original colour art, writer Matt Hardy has also reworked his script and award winning letterer Rob Jones has worked his magic on the text.
Basically this is our remastered, our absolute, all the extras, special edition version.
Pretty cool we think.
OK - let's meet the cast.
So tell us more about the book?
Our tale takes us through a future version of the City of Brighton from the iconic Pier onto Kemp Town and eventually to the Gates of Hell itself - and asks the questions:
If you could peer into Heaven and know that only slavery awaits you - could you still be a good person?
What if a vision of Hell showed you supreme power awaited only those who committed the worst, most horrendous crimes?
How sordid, how vile could you be? - Could you commit great evil to save your immortal soul?
For those who like their stories with more than just metaphysical questions we also have gunfights, BIG explosions, a large amount of murder and a giant mutated octopus. Yeah, a giant mutated octopus.
OK - let's look at how the upgraded art compares -
You want more? OK - we are giving away ALL the ORIGINAL full colour painted book art - signed and numbered by artist Edward Bentley.
You want EVEN MORE? - OK - how about a special collectors box containing a copy of the book.
So who are the disturbed souls making this Graphic Novel nirvana?

Edward Bentley - Built from paperclips and sticky tape in the MRC killer-artist robot lab, Ed is designed to run solely on a special mix of Nicotine and US TV shows. Ed is currently working freelance at www.edward-bentley.com. Credits include Cadavers and Madhouse for MRC and Hexes for Blue Fox Comics. Ed is still getting a dog.
Rob Jones - usually found lettering a variety of comics, writing for Madius Comics and shouting angrily at seagulls - Rob has won several awards and is the proud owner of at least 78% of his own teeth. Find him on Twitter yelling idiocy into the void @RobJonesWrites or at his website.
So - are you ready to join Detectives Jack and Squat for a dark, horror filled romp through a world gone crazy - where the borders of reality are weakened, madness bleeds through, and heaven and hell are closer than you think...
Is this your Last Exit?
Risks and challenges
This will be our 4th Kickstarter - and we always deliver on time.
This is a completed project - an extra Special Edition of an existing work (but thankfully without George Lucas's involvement).
The book is just waiting to be sent out to backers - so unless the world ends we cannot fathom a reason why this book wouldn't be in your hands immediately.
If the world does end - we'll still get the book to you somehow :)
