      Well done to Pete and the team! Brilliant news that the 35k mark has been beat and this morning the 40k mark has also been passed. I increased my pledge this morning because "why not" so glad I did. Here's hoping for another good 6 or so hours of pledging. Can't wait to see what the future holds.

      Been a striker fan for more years than i can remember, way back in the 1990's, Followed the strip through the newspaper in which i collected strip daily since the 90's and also brought all the comic's when it first came out, Not forgetting the Warbury football shirts i have & mugs & calendar ,
      Striker strip has been a big part of my life, always the first page i turn to when buying the newspaper....
      So come on people, just a couple days left to get this project over the line, I have up graded my pledge to push it a bit closer to it happening

      Upped my pledge to get us over the £28K mark - hoping that might help spur others to commit - so want this to happen and very best of luck with it all - love the series

    32. Pete Nash Creator on

      That's a very generous increase, Michael, but this isn't about getting extra money just to get us over the line. We need the subscribers as well to make this work. Hold firm - we can still do this.

      Michael on

      I've upped my pledge, if all is backers could manage an extra tenna it will almost be there.

      Pete, how about add an extra tenna and put the individuals face in the crowd on the cover of the print copy or on the back of the next book? Anything really just to get over the line

      Come on get behind a great comic. Striker is more than a football team, we have killer tv hosts, dodgy football chairmen and don't forget the world unluckiest pork scratchings millionaire and his trophy wife.... who needs coronation street, we have Striker!!

      We need more than a wee corner in the Sun, sign up to get a more in-depth look at the Warbury warriors and all other teams in the World League.

      Backed the comic back in the day by buying every single issue and also buying shares. Not read Striker for years, due to me boycotting The Sun for the past few years but I'm happy to support this and have pledged my £18 for the first 12 issues. Hope it goes ahead, forgot how much I enjoyed it

      Come on guys. Just about breaking even here after two weeks. I've made £120 pledge. Why, because I love striker. I'm not a massive football fan and don't support any proper teams but it's not just about the football. The drama over the years has been amazing and I for one would love to see this continue. The comic years in the early noughties were amazing with some of the best stories ever written. Chucks Choice and McMisery just to name a couple and who can forget Boris. This is what funding can do. It gives Pete the opportunity to expand the storylines and to take the storylines to a higher level. Strikerworld boasts a membership of almost 3400, where are you guys? The Facebook page boasts a membership of almost 650, where are you guys? Just imagine how quick the target would be hit if everyone of those bodies just pledged a wee £3. For the sake of Strikers future dip into your pockets now and keep the ride that Striker is alive.

      First of all I’m not a comic reader generally speaking, but Striker is so good it’s impossible not to enjoy. Doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, male or female, or normally don’t even read - there’s something for everyone, be it drama, comedy and there’s even a little football thrown into the mix :)

      Moving forward we are on the cusp of an exciting time for Striker as the game is really stepped up. There’s going to be animated matches that are randomly determined using intelligent algorithms to create “likely” outcomes but unknown until the match. And because of this we will be able to bet on the matches too! The comics had an original run at the start of the century and formed probably the most exciting period in Striker’s history.

      The strips are being reprinted in the form of hardback books that you can buy as part of the pledges and as someone who has them all (so far) they are a great way to get up to speed. I’ve been a fan since the mid 90s so it has been brilliant to read what went on before and to refresh my memory.

      In short, this is an amazing venture and it’s mainly down to one man - Pete Nash - who has dedicated his life to the strip and risked many things over the last 30+ years, so let’s help him continue his life’s work which has many fans from all around the world.

      OOPs! The later comment under my name was from my son! Because we both pledged from the same computer, although he has his own Kickstarter account and was logged in his comment came up in my name! Anyway, well said, son , and everyone back Striker, please!
