About the Project:

The Comic:

"Princess Zara wants to find a baby dragon. Instead she finds a giant robot. Together, they must stop a robot army."

Art by Nicolas Chapuis. Letters by Sean Rinehart

A fun, action-packed, pop-culture mash up of fairy tale princesses and giant robot anime, ROBOTS VS PRINCESSES is a delightful, all-ages adventure sure to please anyone from age 6 to 76.

ROBOTS VS PRINCESSES is a story about courage, friendship, growing up, and accepting others that is appropriate for young readers without talking down to them.

Words From Others:

"Finding this comic was a delightful surprise. Don't hesitate to back it. You won't be sorry."-Mark Waid (Writer: Kingdom Come, All-New Avengers, Archie)

“Fantastic fantasy from a promising newcomer” -David Lloyd (Artist: V for Vendetta, Aces Weekly)

"Many little girls and boys grow up playing with Transformers as their Ken dolls playing house with Barbie, and with Barbies as savage heroines stomping tiny army men under their (fashionable) heels. This comic has promise to have the same sort of genre bending and mixing that is at the heart of child's play!"- Hope Nicholson (Editor: Secret Lives of Geek Girls)

Robots vs. Princesses is a breath of fresh air! Aside from its winning concept, it features a tight, carefully-constructed plot and a charming cast of characters. The action keeps things exciting while staying true to its younger audience. Best of all, the story carries an authentic message about the power of friendship. With stories like this in the comics market, everyone wins.”-Nicole Boose (Editor: Millarworld: Jupiter’s Legacy, Chrononauts, Starlight)

"Robots Vs. Princesses is a love song to all of my childhood favorites. Todd Matthy manages to conjure up the warm nostalgia of Saturday Mornings gone by, while still pushing in exciting new directions. This blast from the past is a blast from start to finish!"- Marc Sumerak (Writer: Power Pack, Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius Editor: Avengers, Thor, Iron Man, Agent X)

"Robots vs. Princesses is a fun and promising series. I love the twist on fairy tale tropes, and the art is top-notch!"- Kristen Gudsnuk (Creator/Writer/Artist: Henchgirl)

The Kickstarter:

ROBOTS VS PRINCESSES is a 4 issue full color mini series and this Kickstarter’s goal is to fund the entire project at once as opposed to issue by issue.

ROBOTS VS PRINCESSES has a publisher but is an independent comic book. As an independent comic, we have to pay for the art team ourselves.

Below is a chart detailing what the funds will be used for:

Letters 67%

Rewards 12%

Shipping 21%

Nicolas Chapuis’ art has an incredible animated quality and is nothing short of stunning. Sean Rinehart’s lettering gives the dialogue an extra pop. This book will not be what it is without Nic and Sean and they deserve to be compensated as such.
