It was supposed to be an ordinary day at work for Paul. But after grabbing a coffee and checking his emails he clicks on the radio and... The next thing he remembers he’s standing in the middle of his office with his friends and colleagues lying dead around him and he’s holding a gun. He does the only thing that makes sense.
He runs for it.
Transmissions is a 84 page espionage comic that’s being published by TPub Comics (the guys behind Twisted Dark, Theatrics, Tortured Life and Turncoat). If you’re a fan of books like Velvet, Injection, Global Frequency, The Wildstorm or really just spy fiction in general I think you’ll really like what we’re doing here! In fact we're so confident in the book we're offering the complete first issue for free on our website, on Webtoons, and as a downloadable PDF!
WHAT CAN YOU GET?
Well, aside from the warm bubbly feeling you get when you support independent creatives we’ve got a bunch of different (read: awesome) reward tiers.
Transmissions was written (and lettered!) by the Jed McPherson. He's the writer behind Deadbeat (a finalist in the Ghost City Comic competition for best single issue), has written The Show (a surreal send up of reality tv and the lunatics that create it), and is the first external writer that TPub has taken on for the Twisted Dark series.
Jed is lucky to be joined by Marco Perugini on inks. He’s well established in the Italian scene working on the Morgan Lost series for publisher Sergio Bonelli Editore, and his work has been published in Heavy Metal.
He’s ably assisted by Shannon Bennion on colours. Aside from colouring transmissions, Shannon mostly works freelance whilst working on her original concepts, all of which lean heavily into sci-fi/fantasy and thriller genres. She’s currently working on a original graphic novel called If We Shadows
And finally we’ve invaluable editorial insight from Neil Gibson, TPub's founder and writer of Twisted Dark. He’s also a great editor with the uncanny ability to find plot holes in even the tightest scripts (seriously, give him your favourite comic and he’ll tell you exactly what’s wrong with it).
Risks and challenges
The book is complete (or, almost complete), there's comics aplenty for you to read, and TPub has so far successfully delivered all books on time (except when Neil had a child partway through fulfilment but that's not going to happen in our timeline!)
We've got quotes from the printers, and we're confident we can have all rewards printed and sent to backers by the end of November, 2019!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
