What would you do if saving the universe meant losing your soul?

A deadly choice between saving everyone you ever loved and your own total annihilation.    

This is the decision Raiden Nakamura must make as he faces off against the might of the Demon Imperial Alliance - a horde of ancient alien invaders hell-bent on conquering our solar system and seizing a powerful weapon in the form of the giant super robot: Mayhem.  

Little did Raiden know, when he first strapped into Mayhem’s pilot seat, he would have to not only battle the alien menace, but also Mayhem itself, in a struggle for control over his mind and soul.  

But Raiden is not alone. His friends Ulysses Breton, Captain Randolph Carter, Dr Mengyu Wen, Chief Engineer Suelita Solar and the rest of the ISTA Theseus must help him retain some last semblance of the man he once was.

(Super Robot) Mayhem is a comic from award winning writer Jeremy Biggs (Metal Made Flesh), co-creator Adrian Mursec (SuperRobotMayhem.com), Artist Bordon (The Dogs) and Ghost in the Shell: SAC designer Paul Nicholson.

 Two ACTION-PACKED issues of Super Robot Mayhem!

Jeremy Biggs

Jeremy Biggs is a writer and publishes stories under the name Subversive Comics.  

Jeremy is the lead writer of cyberpunk smash Metal Made Flesh. His work has appeared in Heavy Metal and Starburst Magazines and he has worked with artists from 2000 A.D. and Marvel Comics.

 As an artist he was featured in the "Undercurrent" show at the opening of the Tanks wing of the Tate Modern in 2012. 

Adrian Mursec

Software developer by day and comic blogger by night, mild mannered Adrian is the owner of SuperRobotMayhem.com, a comic and movie news website launched in 2009 and a portal for Adrian to share his love for comics, movies and super robot toys.  

Reading Transformers comics as a kid sparked a life-long obsession with collecting robots, so for Adrian, this project is a dream come true.

Adrian lives with his wife Kirsty, kids Dexter and Willow and their gerbil (Thor) and hopes to one day own a dog.

Paul Nicholson

Most famous for designing the iconic Laughing Man logo for Production I.G. Paul was featured as a character in the second gig of GitS:SAC, in return for his design work, where he also contributed the design of the individual 11 logo.  

Paul also designed logos, typography and artwork for the Aphex Twin, Manga UK, Terratag clothing and many more. A long time Manga and Anime fan, he wrote his PhD thesis on Super Robots!  

Bordon

Bordon has 20 years of design experience in the comics and videogames industry, and published his first self written thriller mystery comic book "The Dogs" in 2010.

His work mainly focuses on sci-fi and fantasy. He also works as professional animator.  

In 2015, after a brief stay in Spain and France, he emigrated to Poland, where he is now living and keeping his art studio in Krakow city. 

He loves dogs, castles, tramways and old second world war airplanes, especially Spitfires. Whilst working he smokes tobacco a lot and drink lots of coffee, but people still understand what he is mumbling in Polish, even with his dark voice.

Jon Scrivens

Jon Scrivens is an Artist, Colourist and Letterer from Berkhamsted, Herts. He's worked as a colour assistant on titles for Marvel, DC/Vertigo and Image (The Punisher, Sheriff of Babylon, Batman, The Activity). 

His lettering work featured in multiple indie titles such as Bertie Bear, Toots Malloy: Blues Ninja & Metal Made Flesh (including a recent short featured in Heavy Metal Magazine). 

He's often found at comic events drawing zombie portraits and flogging his creator-owned graphic novel Little Terrors!

Yel Zamor

Yel ‘Rainbow Wrangler’ Zamor is a UK based freelance artist enthusiastically specialising in digital comic colours. 

Approaching their first decade in the industry, Yel has contributed to projects by Marvel, Dark Horse, Markosia and Orang Utan Comics.

Yel’s creative projects also extend to illustrations and graphics for browser-based games such as Board Game Online and Catamancer: an entirely cat-flavoured strategy adventure card game.  

Their origin story can be traced to Soviet Eastern Europe, but London has been a dear home for more than 20 years, despite the lingering accent.  

Yel enjoys cosplay, archery, cats and cake as a way to break up the monotony of a reclusive geek life.

Risks and challenges

We're a dab hand at Kickstarter now, and since we started we've learned a lot, including having good control over our printing sources, learning how to make tweaks to improve quality, allowing time for any delays in printing, and having backups in case a printer is unable to fulfill on time.

We'll be notifying you at all stages of the Kickstarter how progress is coming along, including an insight into the writing process and showing work in progress pics of the artwork.

Issue One is already fully produced and ready to go. We're confident we can deliver on time and to the high quality our backers demand!
