UPDATE #1 (Oct. 19): Check out our UPDATES page for the new STRETCH GOAL with additional rewards!
Issue #1 is done and at the printers!
This martial arts and action oriented graphic novel is written by Matt Stevens and illustrated by Chase Conley (Black Dynamite, Dresden Files). It is wildly inspired by the life of 10th Degree Black Sash and Martial Arts Hall of Fame member Sifu Vincent Lyn.
With the first issue in the can and at the printers, our goal is to use Kickstarter to fund the second issue and keep the series going.
We are relying on your support to make The Kung-Fu STAR the reality we all so very much want it to be. Artist Chase Conley just finished work on the hit BLACK DYNAMITE animated series so now is the time to release this project.
This printing will be exclusive to Kickstarter and the New York Comic Con. Snap Comics will release this series into comic book stores in the Spring of next year.
YOU get to experience The Kung-Fu STAR before everyone else and help get issue #2 underway!
Always forced to play the villain, half Chinese, half British martial arts actor/stuntman/model Vincent Lyn is finally offered the part of the hero. He will be the Kung-Fu Star in a major Hong Kong motion picture. The only problem is he falls hard for his leading lady, the drop dead gorgeous Rose Lee, who just happens to be the mistress of ruthless Triad leader, Boss Chow.
Now Vincent must use his martial arts training not only to rescue the woman he loves, but to avoid a fatal end to his ability to walk and breathe.
In real life, there are no second takes!
Inspired by Vincent Lyn's real-life exploits in Hong Kong, where he starred opposite the likes of Jackie Chan, Simon Yam, Donnie Yen and Michael Wong. He wasn't known as 'Lyn the Sin' for nothing.
Essentially, this is art imitating life, as Vincent Lyn was always cast as the villain and died in 18 of his films. Those who know the man believe he should have been given the chance to play the lead. THIS IS HIS CHANCE!
Matt Stevens has completed the scripting for this project and Chase Conley will be working with artist SilvioDB in completing the final three issues. Silvio just completed Matt Stevens' comic book DESTINY.
