About this project

About the Project:

 The Comic:

"Princess Zara wants a baby dragon. She finds a robot named Wheeler. Together, they must stop a robot army." 

 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, and accepting others that is appropriate for young readers without talking down to them.

 The Kickstarter:

ROBOTS VS PRINCESSES is a full color comic book and this Kickstarter’s goal is to raise $2,500 to fund the first issue. Any additional money raised will go toward completing more issues. 

 

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.

 

If we can’t pay for the creative team, the book will not come to life. Our goal is to produce a first issue and rewards with any extra money raised going toward completing the rest of the series. 

 

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.

Rewards

Here comes the fun stuff. We have quite a few digital and physical rewards for you. Here are some of them.

We've got Three Variants from three talented artists. 

The first is Andrea Tamme (which will also be available as a mini-print)

Testimonials 

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

 

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

 

"Fabulous and entertaining" –Ron Friedman (Writer: Transformers: The Movie)

  “The wacky mash-up of princesses and robots looks promising. The art is appealing, and it will give girls a chance to live up to their potential as robot-slayers.”—Christy Marx (Creator of JEM and the Holograms, Writer-Amythest)

"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 (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 (Writer/Artist: Henchgirl)

 

 

Risks and challenges

As with any creative endeavor unexpected set backs like artists getting sick can potentially arise that will cause delays. Luckily, most of the art has been completed and the funds will go toward art, lettering, rewards, and future issues.

If successfully funded, our publisher is fully committed to bringing ROBOTS VS PRINCESSES to the market.
