About this project
Welcome to the Second Edition of the Sci-Fi Angels Playing cards with the magnificent artwork of returning artist Claudio Aboy!
Claudio Aboy is an international artist that has been working professionally for over 20 years. His art is instantly recognizable and that is due to his many published works of art, including covers for Heavy Metal Magazine.
The 54 card set (52 suit cards + 2 Jokers) will feature 13 images on four suits. The Jokers will have individual cards too. That is a total of 15 images plus the Back image bringing the total to 16 full color images for this quality set of cards.This deck is as beautiful as it is functional and versatile for magic, card flourishing or even just a game of poker!
The Face Cards feature a bold, new look and feel. Each card has a different Sci FI Angel! The deck looks amazing and has a familiar design. The Face Card artwork is the full original artwork of Claudio Aboy!
The Back of the card features the Sci Fi Angel that helped to inspire the creation of this deck. It is a bold image for this deck of Mature cards. The Back Card design uses the original artwork of Claudio Aboy!
The tuckbox is a finely glossed cardboard box that is sealed with a cellophane wrapper.
A special commemorative 4 page booklet printed on quality gloss paper will be added to the set. This booklet will be individual from the sealed set.

Risks and challenges
Welcome to the fifth Top Secret Press playing card Kickstarter!
First let me say that before I realized who he was, I was a fan of Claudio Aboy's artwork. His work graced the covers of Heavy Metal Magazine in the late 90's into the 2000's and they were etched into my mind's eye. He is a pleasure to work with and I feel we are making some great products together.
Second, I have decided to make the Sci Fi Angels a 3 deck series of cards. They will all use the artwork of Claudio Aboy and will have the same familiar packaging for all three decks.
Third, on this Kickstarter some things are the same and others have been changed. The deck itself is the same. We have changed our printer, however, and now use a USA printer. This cuts the production time down to a few months instead of several. It cuts through the Nudity snag also.
I had a stretch goal for the Booklet last time. We are just adding it to the set now.
Like the last deck, there will be 4 suits with 13 images, the Back and two Jokers making up the sixteen images. This deck of playing cards is produced for our IV Mature Only line, so there are some adult images.
The cards will be printed on 300 gsm card stock by a company called Shuffled Ink.
I am offering some of my previous kickstarter decks. Quantities are currently limited, so I have split them up into several Incentive Packages. Depending on the response to this deck, I may be able to afford more of these decks. We shall see as the Kickstarter evolves.
As anyone knows who followed my last Playing Card set, there are always challenges. What they are, you never know. Some Kickstarters go really smooth, others take a bumpy road. Regardless, in the end, all hurtles can be surpassed with a little patience and effort.
Thanks for the support!
I can't do it without you!
