About this project
“The truth may be stretched thin, but it never breaks, and it always surfaces above lies, as oil floats on water.”
―Miguel De Cervantes, Don Quixote
Hi! My name is Jeff McComsey(MOTHER RUSSIA, FLUTTER), and I’m the editor in chief of the historical zombie anthology, FUBAR, and I’m back once again to ask for your support, but this time for my first full color, non FUBAR Creator owned project:
HONCHO is a post WWIII story of an American commando: Captain Donald Q. Stanley landing in what was once North Carolina on a mission to reach the stronghold of Charlotte.
He claims to be on a mission for a president no one has heard of on behalf of a country that hasn't existed in 15 years.
The central question of the story: Just how crazy is Captain Stanley?
HONCHO will be 75 pages to start but I hope to add pages for stretch goals.
Is he a damaged veteran of a nuclear world war finally returning home or a man on a top secret mission for the sitting president of a United States government in exile?
Upon his arrival, he discovers a weird tribal structure made up of orphans from the civil wars that broke out in America post WWIII.
These tribes have formed up around local baseball teams and team pride is perhaps the most important thing to this new way of life. If you’ve got a good arm then the sky’s the limit. If not, then you’re in deep shit.
We’re also offering a 24 page one shot prequel to HONCHO called THE BANG which will be available with all reward tiers at $30 and over.
This one-shot lays out the events that led up to the short and brutal Third World War that takes place in 1983, fifteen years before the events in HONCHO.
HONCHO will be co-written by myself and FUBAR Story Editor Jeff McClelland( THE TICK). I’ll be handling the art with colors by Mr. Paul Little( MORNING GLORIES, SONS OF ANARCHY).
We’re asking for funds to set aside the time and make these stories a reality.
To get there we have a bunch of cool rewards where you can own both books, original art from either HONCHO or THE BANG, T-shirts, prints and a bunch of other sweet merch including some of my previous work like MOTHER RUSSIA and the AMERICAN TERROR series. We also have the kickstarter packages from our previous campaigns which both contain out of print books and comics!
If successful we plan to add pages on to both HONCHO and THE BANG through stretch goals as well as adding some other fun one shots too!
Kickstarter remains the best place to offer new books to old fans first and make some new ones along the way.
As always, thank you for your time and thank you for your support!
Risks and challenges
This is my sixth campaign so I know a lot of the pitfalls and how to avoid them when it comes to Kickstarters. I have left a trail of over 2,500 happy backers from previous Kickstarters behind me and intend to do the same with this campaign as well. I make backer satisfaction my #1 concern while working on these campaigns.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
