Who is Bulletproof Chicken?
Some say he is a force of nature. Others say he is a reject of a hormone injected time gone by. The facts are, he's the most unstoppable cop on the force. This high octane splatterfest will follow BPC and his partner as they battle the notorious Fuster Cluck gang. King Bone Press will bring you a 32 page one shot comic featuring a tale of the cock with a glock.
Who is on his team?
Art will be brought to you by Bobgar Ornelas (co-publisher and artist on b-one, Bandthology, Low Concept) and Mat Nixon (Bandthology, Low Concept). This team will provide you with the fun, energetic, anthropomorphic action you want. Please see our preview pages below.
Colors will be provided by David Halvorson (Deadhorse, Tales of Armstrong). Highlighting our awesome art is some amazing color work by Mr. Halvorson.
Script and letters by Jon Westhoff. Utilizing a great art team, we have set out to bring you a high action, brutal story with what we hope will be some unexpected turns for the reader.
What's in the book?
The book will feature 29 1/3 pages of story with 3 great pin ups by Ray Wegner, Greg Golem and Bobgar Ornelas. The story has an action movie sense, but also follows a mystery that the police force has to investigate. The Fuster Clucks have run organized crime a long time and now they are trying to change the rules. Bulletproof and his partner thought they established the cities boundaries with the Clucks years ago, but these kinds of deal always have a way of resurfacing. Nothing will stop BP from teaching the Clucks who makes the rules. Nothing. It will be a full color(American standard size) comic and is a complete story.
Since we are not just doing a strict preorder, we need to offer you something to sink your teeth into.

Where's my money going?
Printing 1000 books plus the incentives/shipping estimates should be around $1400/$1500 (depending on international orders). A percentage of all books printed will be distributed to the hard working creators who have helped us bring this book to you. We have set the goal below that in order to ensure we reach the goal. We appreciate every dollar and everyone who helps spread the word. We do not believe it is the sole purpose of crowdfunding to fully fund a product that we intend to sell later at a profit. Your pledges will help us get the book printed, send out review copies and help us be able to sell the books to shops at a discount rate without taking a loss.
That is all your pledges will be used for.
King Bone Press is a two man operation. When the creative property is not split with all the creators, then we try to offer those artists/writers compensation for their work. That is not part of this Kickstarter. That is up to us to decide and ultimately it is not what we feel the role of crowdfunding should be. We need your help, but, again, it is up to us as a company to sling these books, not expect our fans to cover all the cost. This is the belief of King Bone Press and is not meant to be targeted at any other crowd funding. We only state this because we believe in being honest when people are helping us. Thank you so much for reading our Kickstater and we hope you will contribute.
NOW THAT IT IS FUNDED!!!
This book will debut at Dan Con Fall with shipping to commence that week!! Thanks everyone!
Risks and challenges
Luckily, there’s little to no risk involved in this project. Crowdfunding has always been important to our two-man operation here at King Bone Press, so we made sure to get most of the hard work done before presenting our campaign. And with production well underway, all we have to worry about is printing up the book and sending it out to all of you.
As with most Kickstarters, we ask for your patience when it comes to shipping (as there’s only two of us), but you can be sure that we personally ensure the quality and safety of every order before it goes out. Your support will keep us bagging, boarding and labeling for as long as it takes to put every last copy of Bulletproof Chicken out in the world.
And most importantly, all of our backers will be updated as we take this project from raw to extra crispy.
