Skulldier Stories: 4-echo #2 - a Futuristic Ninja Epic Comic
Masako is a ruthless and perfectly obedient killing machine - Earthen Law's perfect Skulldier. The futuristic ninja epic continues!
A rogue squad of Skulldiers have defected and cut off communication on the planet of 4-echo. Masako is sent in to eliminate every last one.
Masako is the opposite of Nix from issue #1 - she's fiercely obedient with no independent thoughts of her own. Her loyalty is entirely with Earthen Law. Masako is joined on the mission by her assigned alien partner, Org, from the planet of 3-echo.
Issue 2 is a 24 page, full color, standard US size comic. I am the sole writer, penciller, colorist and letterer. The content of the book leans more toward a teen and up audience. There's some swearing in it and a heavy dose of glorious bloody violence.
Issue 2 will be printed solo once and only once. So basically, if you don't back issue 2 through Kickstarter, you won't be able to get it. It's obviously an extremely limited run.
- Skulldiers are the most elite of soldier of Earth. Not only are they simply the deadliest, they also have the highest levels of telepathy. Skulldiers answer to their superiors in Earthen Law Interplanetary Command (ELIC). It is their mission to invade planets similar to Earth and extract resources by any means necessary.

This Kickstarter campaign acts as a pre-order system. The book is DONE. The printer is picked out and ready to go. All the merchandise is ready to be ordered and in pending status through the manufacturers. All I need is this campaign target met. That's where you can help! This is the exact spending that I plan on doing after a successful campaign. Unfortunately shipping makes up a significant percentage. All reward items will be shipped flat and secure.
