In the year 2069, what has been uncovered in secret archaeological digs, transpiring over the last 50 years is going to rock the foundation of what we all believe. The remains of heroes, villains, monsters and creatures, that have long been believed to be myth or legend have been found. The remains have been used to create clones. These clones are caged, retrained and forced to fight in the most brutal sport in the world, the "Xtreme Champion Tournament". This has become the most watched sport in history, and sees cloned fighters pitted against each other, as well as well known mythical creatures, for entertainment purposes.

In issue #4 everything is about to come to a head. The fans want to see Baykok Vs. Spartacus in the arena, Oscar Keenan wants more money and Lozen want's her revenge. Will she get it or has Spartacus finally met his match?

Praise and Acclaim

"Xtreme Champion Tournament: Spartacus is everything I wanted it to be. Badass, Brutal & Bloody!" - Dan 'Agron' Feuerriegel  

"I picked up my copy of XCT and what I got was a page turning twist on an already incredible story with shit hot artwork to boot. The creators have taken the legend of Spartacus and created something new and exciting. " - Barry 'Lugo' Duffield

"Great series with a completely fresh story line for the comic world. The artwork is fantastic, and story line brilliant." - Belinda McInerney

The comic is a standard floppy comic, with 24 pages of full colour artwork by Jerry Gaylord (Fanboy Vs Zombies) and printed to the highest quality. This is Issue #4 of an ongoing series and is limited to 2500 standard copies and 500 incentive cover copies.

Production and Promotion costs include: 

  • Paying the printing and shipping costs of Posters & Prints 
  • Paying the printing and shipping costs of Comics 
  • Paying of expenses for other Promotional Material

We have tried to think "outside the box" when it comes to incentives and to try and entice new backers of the series for this campaign and we think we have come up with some awesome ideas. Firstly, we have been lucky enough to have Spartacus (Liam McIntyre from the Starz series), Crixus (Manu Bennett from the Starz series) and Agron (Dan Feuerriegel from the Starz Series) do a signing for us to promote and support this campaign. Some of the items signed include a small amount of comics of Issues #0, #1 and #2.

Below are some images of Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett and Dan Feuerriegel and the rest of the cast from the STARZ series "Spartacus". They are signing, reading, providing selfies and literally trying to get their hands on XCT. The actors have been extremely supportive of the series and are right behind this next issue!

Creative Team  

Myself (Shaun Paulet) creator/editor of the XCT universe and general story line. I have been working on the XCT universe over the past 5 years and am currently working on a second title Sci-Fi title called Terralympus.  

Brendan Halyday is an great Australian talent that specializes in illustrating, design and writing and has done an awesome job scripting this book as well as providing all the polish.  

Jerry Gaylord has burst onto the scene with Fanboys Vs Zombies, Bill & Teds Triumphant Return and Loki:Ragnarok and Roll by BOOM! Studios. We are super lucky to have Jerry on board this project with his super tight pencils and great action scenes. Jerry was also nominated for the Harvey Award for best new talent, so you know his artwork is going to rock.

Penny Gaylord has done a great job inking this issue and has worked on books such as Fanboys Vs Zombies, Loki:Ragnarok and Roll and Soulfire. She is a proud member of the Identity Comics Studio team and does a lot to promote women in comics.  

Wilson Go has jumped on the book to do colours for this issue and has done a fantastic job in making all the characters jump right off the page and hit you in the face.

Risks and challenges

The delivery date for almost all rewards will be in early July of 2017. After the campaign is over, I'll be keeping everyone up to date on the printing schedules for the book and all the rewards as we go along.

With the pencil, ink and colour illustrations already done, all that's left is the lettering and design/layout work for the interior of the book. The turnaround on printing for the books is about 2-3 weeks and will be done during this campaign, once received packing and shipping all those cool rewards will take about 2-4 weeks to action.

You know how nothing in life EVER goes perfectly smooth, right? Well, just to give you all a heads up, if there are shipment schedule issues or challenges with the printers, or those pesky day-to-day challenges, I know how to stick it out, get the work done, make it look great and meet those deadlines! I have done it before and will do it again!!

I believe that transparency is key in a venture like this, so again, I'll be keeping everyone informed as we make our way through this fun project. Thanks for all your support.

Warm Regards

Shaun Paulet
