About

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.  

 

  • All stickers are die-cut glossy coated vinyl
  • 4-echo Series 2 pack of 4, all 3x3"
  • All Mini Prints printed on matte cardstock
  • All Mini Prints are 4x6"
  • The bust sketches are going to be actual pencil work over printed blue lines.  Above are the templates that I will be using.  Which one you receive is entirely up to chance.
  • all signed & numbered
  • 5x7"
  • Common = 85% / Rare = 10% / Very Rare = 5%
  •  Available in all sizes up to XXL
  • Both are printed on matte paper, signed & numbered.
  • The red Masako 11x17" print is a hint at another storyline of hers.  
  • Along with the red Masako 11x17" reward, you will also receive a short narrative that goes into what the Kthulean Uprising actually is.  
  • If you back at this Tier level, you will receive a pencil sketch of Masako killing off anyone that you want (subject to my approval).
  • Egleans have a facial structure similar to humans, but not exactly, so creating a likeness of a real person might not be doable.
  • The upgrades for Tier 10 include giving your Eglean a speaking line in issue 3.
  • Upgrades for tier 11 include creating a 6 page comic for your Skulldier along with me
  • Your Skulldier will be shared across all of my social media and website
  • These are the remaining issue 1 original pencils, the missing pages were claimed during the previous Kickstarter for issue 1.
  • All on 11x17" comic board
  • all signed & page numbered
  • These are the final two original colored pages from issue 1
  • colored by the master, Jeremy Johnson
  • issue 1 ended up being colored digitally and was not finished in this beautiful style
  • archival quality
  • 9x12" toned tan paper
  • Copic marker & Prismacolor pencil
  •  If you would like to add on any of these items, just tack on the extra charge to your reward pledge!  Make sure to message me about it too so I know what you're wanting.
  • The head sketches will still be given out randomly, though if you get  more than one, I will make sure you don't get a duplicate.

 

 

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.

 

Risks and challenges

It's entirely done and just needs to be printed. All merchandise is done and ready to go. Let's do this!
