About

Enter The Asylum

A comic featuring stories and characters inspired by the amazing personas encountered at last year's Asylum Steampunk Festival, the largest and longest running Steampunk Festival in the Solar System!

A full colour 28 page comic.

Four tales by established creators that feature, with permission, the Steampunk personas of enthusiasts or an interpretation of events that took place over the weekend itself.

Brought to you by creators Dave West (Eagle Award wining co-creator and writer of Whatever Happened To The World's Fastest Man?, co-creator and writer of Stephenson's Robot and WesterNoir and artist / writer of Strange Times), Colin Mathieson (writer / artist of Moments of Adventure, Zulu and comic work currently on display at the National Army Museum), Gary Crutchley (co-creator and writer / artist of WesterNoir who has also seen his work appear in 2000AD and Bluewater Comics), Russell Mark Olson (artist / writer of Gateway City), Nikos Alteri, Anna Francesca Schiraldi (artist on Tales of the Damned) and colourist Matt Soffe.

Should we reach the £500 mark then all backers will get a free Steampunk art card with art from the talented Matt Soffe.

PROJECT £500 TARGET REACHED.

All backers will receive a copy of the fabulous art card (above) from Matt Soffe.

This additional print card by Ian Ashcroft will be sent to all backers if the Project reaches £1000.

Every £500 beyond this will mean an additional free art card from a talented artist for all backers.

Now we have broken the £1000 barrier we'll be giving an additional art card, this time with art from cover artist Gary Crutchley, to all backers.

 I'll be working on a reward for if we should reach £1250.
