Terra Kaiju is a 25 page, saddle stitched, landscape format, One-Shot Comic Book inspired by my life long love for Godzilla movies. It's also heavily inspired by films such as Tsu Hong Wu, GMK, and the 1966 film Daimajin, which is a kaiju film set in feudal Japan.
Terra Kaiju is set in feudal Japan as well. An endless, embittered battle between two neighboring villages ravages Japan's countryside. The battle will be decided by pitting the village gods against one another.
At the heart of the story is our hero, Kohitsuji. He is young samurai who must sacrifice his life to his village's sleeping god, Terra Ramu. Kohitsuji's soul is then infused into Terra Ramu, thus awakening him for battle.
Terra Ramu, a 100 foot terra cotta samurai god must then defend his village from Hebragon, an ancient flying serpent demon god.

Risks and challenges
The risks all rest on my shoulders.
I will have to complete the artwork (which getting this project financed will allow me to put time into my schedule to finish the artwork).
I will also oversee printing and distribution of rewards (which I have run a couple comic kickstarter projects in the past and have gotten used to the fulfillment process).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
